Review of Jamiroquai – Emergency On Planet Earth (Deluxe Reissue) (Sony Music Canada)

JamiroquaiBoasting a heaping dose of 70’s soul and funk, Jamiroquai’s debut album sounds as fresh in 2013 as it did when it was released 20 years ago. Fleshed out by a vibrant horn section, strings and Jay Kay’s Stevie Wonder-esque vocals, this album stood out as a true original in the midst of the grunge craze, which was in full swing when the record was originally released. This reissue comes packaged with a bonus disc of assorted live tracks, acoustic takes and remixes that serve to make a good thing better.
