“Really high-quality, well-executed LP. Covers a lot of musical ground (jazz, funk, classic rap, r&b, neosoul, dance, pop…) and does it fluidly. I particularly enjoy their key sounds and chord choices. The production is on-point and the vocalists are solid” – Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling/The Allergies)
