I have followed Junkie XL for some time now. I love his style; he’s evrything that other dance artists are trying to be. I’m not saying that they are better or worse, just different. I appreciate artists like JXL in their endeavors of trying new things while maintaining what’s familiar to their signature style. At the same time, like most artists, they must mature and grow in their ways and it shows through their music. Some people stick to that one album of any artist like a security blanket. Instead, they should take in something different from what’s given to them. The music industry has a lot to do with marketing one’s record to the company’s specs. But the artist’s creativity is untainted. JXL’s ability to put out great music is the one thing the record companies have little to do with… it’s all him. I love all the greats in dance and electronica. I think Junkie XL has always pushed the envelope. In this case, he has done very well. In ceating new music and trying new things, he has figured out how to make it pallatable to the other crowd of a different style. I’m not so big on profanity in songs, but this adds an edge to his talents as an artist. This album is chock full of club music. The likes of which would set the mood for those all-nighters out there. Thankfully, it has sultry and soul, with no achey or corny themes. It’s new age electro rock with Orbital and (Sasha)esque qualities. The single “More” has that element of late night clubbing in Miami feel to it. I find it to be more of a stepping stone for something bigger. But a step with his best foot forward into the right direction.
