Keemvink Allways wanted to use the word “eclectic”. Well this is an eclectic album by a great artist who borrows from many styles, varying from tafkap-funk to moody instrumentals via a Moloko sound-alike version of the disco-anthem Ring My bell. And every song/piece has its own sound(effects).
Serious music that brings a smile to your face.
Great album. Favorite track: You Can Ring My Bell.

GurdyBird I really love the atmosphere of this album and the diverse sounds that I remember about New York, and I love that I can remember parts of the city from the time I visited and left a piece of my heart there through this album. "Asleep on the Subway" is a joint favourite for me along with the stomping, celebratory "I live in New York City". Beautiful sounds and great expression within, a pure joy to listen to! Favorite track: I Live in New York City.
