Jamiroquai - High Times Singles 1992 - 2006 CD Review

I was a bit surprised how much I like this CD as I hadn't focused much on this band since the late 90's and Virtual Insanity.

The years have passed quickly as this is the band's seventh CD for Epic Records (with their final studio CD for Epic due sometime this year). This CD spans 19 tracks, covers the band's 14 year career and includes two new songs - Runaway and Radio.

Singer Jay Kay is frightenly good at channeling the disco/funk groove of the 70s and his Stevie Wonder-ish voice fits perfectly with the music. The tracks on this disc span the band's catalog and showcase how their sound has subtly evolved over the years without significantly changing the band's distinctive sound. The music is complemented by detailed liner notes by journalist Dan Gennoe.

The tunes on this disc are insanely catchy; is hard not to move or dance while listening to this.
