Love Incogs and this has to be one of their strongest ever.
At their very best! *****
Slick production soulful & classy I think this is Bluey's finest hour ,some great 'bossa' on here as well. If you love good music you'll love this.
Forgotton classic *****

Easily my favourite of Incognito's 90's period. From the Bond Theme style opening of Where Did We Go Wrong, through the funky Good Love and the uplifting jazz/soul/funk of my personal highlight One Hundred And Rising the album explodes out of the speakers and the quality control doesnt wobble throughout. Bluey was on fire at this point in Incognito's history.
Perfect for chilling out, getting a party going, driving or doing the washing up to this is truly an album for all seasons. Everyone I play it to agrees and most end up getting their own copy. You should do the same!
Not a bad track - excellent playing and great tunes! *****
I just had to write this review as I couldn't allow this album to have such a luke-warm presence on Amazon!!
Some fantastic songs - you'll start checking to see where you've heard them before but they are so memorable they ingrain themselves on your mind very quicly!!
And the production, arrangements and playing are superb - simply top quality.
Not only do we have the excellent core of all the best Incognito - their fantastic rhythm section Julian Crampton is on top form particularly on bass - but you alss have some of the best Jazz musicians in the UK - like Ed Jones on Saxes and Gerard Presencer on Trumpet/Flugel.
But the songs and the depth of vocal talent really stand out as always with Incognito - I cannot recommend this highly enough and if you like Jazz Funk, Acid Jazz or whatever you want to call it - this is an essential purchase - you won't regret!
Great Music *****
