4.5 superbundertakerpt | December 26th 16

Any U.K resident alive in the 90's should instantly recognise "fastlove." The track is catchy, upbeat, funky and
cleverly samples Patrice Rushen (as did the men in black theme but not as tastefully.) All in all its textbook pop
music. Strangely though, the track is surrounded by the polar opposite, with slow, brooding, balled-esque
numbers like "Jesus to a child" and "older", the latter flirting more with a jazzy feel with extended trumpet soloing.
Futhermore there's tracks like "star people" and "spin the wheel " with their elements of downtempo experimental
dance which could easily be the soundtrack to an amsterdam coffee shop. George is on the top of his game as
usual though; his voice is as clear and smooth as ever, and his lyrics take on some seriously deep shit, the prime
example being "you have been loved" which has brought many a hairy tattooed biker to tears. Check it.
