class act cat

Jay Kay is a proper rock star. N'est-ce pas? The beautiful models, the fast cars, the stroppy attitude. It's all there. Then there are the undeniably amazing tunes.

Jamiroquai's highly anticipated longplayer, "Rock Dust Light Star", showed so much promise with the release of first single, "White Knuckle Ride", a dirty funk workout which stands among their best moments. The remix package was pretty wicked stuff, too.

Follow up single, "Blue Skies", was a mellow affair. Still, nicely done. Unfortunately, the album fell kinda flat for me. Being a massive fan, I felt a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, there are some fine moments on the elpee. It just doesn't sparkle from top to tail like previous efforts.

Now, the third single, "Lifeline", is about to be plucked from the album and a video has been cobbled together. It features lots of behind the scenes shots of Jay Kay and co. at various concert locations from around the globe. He looks like he's having the time of his life. But the clip is nothing special, IMHO.

However, do keep an eye out for Jay Kay's shapely posterior. He's a class act, kittens.

"Lifeline" is scheduled to be released on January 24.

  1. You know.. I really like the cd. I was really anticipating the release and while I did like the last album more... I find myself listening to this quite regularly. It took a bit for me to really get into it, but those are the best kind of albums.
