The set benefits from two brilliant, soulful, vocalists – Mazen and Dom Glover and their input is astronomical. The opening song, “Just Give It Up”, with it's Blaze cum Salsoul rhythms complete with horns, sax etc is breathtaking and the vocals kick in and complete the job perfectly! Feel-good dance music is well and truly back, folks! “Thinking Of You” hits us with all the force and passion of Mr. Fingers / Larry Heard. Blinding, haunting and compulsive listening. Mazen returns to vocal duties on the sheer boogie tune, “Times Like This” - all that's missing is Vince Montana's vibes! “Think About It” offers a brilliant George Benson / Rod Temperton early 80s guitar riff with a real sense of the halcyon days we all know and love. This is 2009, folks!!!! As you listen to this CD keep reminding yourself that! Isn't it fantastic?! Fans of Louie Vega's more soulful House output will bask in the glory of “Ain't No Friend Of Mine” - resplendent with a scratchy 70s guitar rhythm that would impress the Blackbyrds, and keys that would make Lonnie Liston Smith smile. The retro Philly grooves of “I'm In The Mood”, “Choose Music” and “The Way” is knockout and Mazen returns to knock us out with the gems “Time To Get Ready”, “Wont You Stop” and “Game Of Life”. My God! I cannot put into words how superb these tracks are. Seriously, if you don't feel these songs then you are either on the wrong website or dead!!! No quibbles – just get clicking and buy a copy NOW.
