    These veterans are already better than The Funkees. [Oct 2012, p.91]
  2. A cool, edgy soundtrack for the summer, should it ever arrive.

    Konkoma's sound is rooted in 1970s Afrobeat, complete with blasting horn section and gloriously fuzzy organ, but shot through with touches of highlife, funk and rock. [Aug 2012, p.75]

    The players' energy and instrumental prowess are captured intact, even if some of the analogue grit that makes the '70s originals so compelling has been sacrificed. [Aug 2012, p.102]
