  • Summary: The sophomore album for the Los Angeles-based group is led by Jack Splash.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. What it lacks in a unified style it makes up for in a referential (and reverential) enthusiasm that anyone with a subscription to Wax Poetics should recognize as an individualized, well-crafted love letter to funk gone by--and funk yet to come.
  2. Like much of today's synthetic approaches, Splash reaches broadly, but his process is more substantive than his content.
  3. Splash's bratty Lil Wayne-meets-Michael Henderson falsetto can wear thin across 66 sprawling minutes (the crew would benefit from a second lead voice), but something far more problematic would have to be in play to impair this stomping good time.
  4. 60
    With partner Panda One, they unleash a concoction of soul, electronica and disco that’s occasionally bizarre, but consistently funky.
  5. Uncut

    The slick sequel starts strongly.... Alas, the album then falls into a compentent but monotonous groove of priapic Prince-old-porno-funk, its minor flashes of OutKast-style irreverence ultimately overshadowed by routine reto-pastiche. [June 2008, p.99]
  6. Time Traveller is an excellent exercise in skill that lacks a certain amount of soulfulness.
  7. Q Magazine

    It just about lives up to the hype. [May 2008, p.136]
