"tangy, ass-wiggling funk...a groove so deep you could fall right in... potent pulse... great, greasy lines by Beasley...a fun romp ...more bite than a simple groove record ...tasty stuff that needs to happen more often... contagious and penetrating grooves... honey dew sounds of southern soul... entertaining recipe of pop, world, R&B and soul injected with funk blasts and contemporary jazz class.... a fantastic recording that is simply pure funk..."
