Take second track "Beau" for example. Like Kraftwerk's "Tour De France Soundtracks", it manages to sound minimal and expansive at the same time, as gorgeous clusters of delicately phrased synth texture dance across the stereo field, held together by an irresistible electro groove that I suspect would actually be beyond the capabilities of those Teutonic forebears. Or how about the beautifully nuanced stutter-beats and retro-moog swoops of "Uniform (citation)"? Totally lush - what's the matter with everyone?!
Currently my top tune on this release, mainly on account of that wonderfully full-on, slightly outta-tune Arp Odyssey lead that just screams of early '70s synthesised jazz-funk, like Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon". Pure joy. If you don't like this, then the problem is with you, not Jimmy.
