That new, but reminiscent Motown sound....
I really dig this band and this record. You can hear all kinds of musical influence in what they do. To me, the Infatuations sound like they managed to get Motown funk to make sweet love to smooth R&B, but then they invited guitar rock in to have an amped-up menage a trois. For a large band, these guys are impressively tight and nuanced. If this is indicative of the stuff coming out of Detroit, then KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
Ambassadors of the Detroit sound
This is a perfect backyard BBQ or (yes) summer block party album. The Infatuations manage to take the elements of everyone's most recognizable Detroit-produced songs of the 60s and 70s, then write new hooks around those sounds, then weave the whole thing into a structure built like a brick house. That's the long way of saying "all of your friends and family will enjoy this album." It's upbeat, it's catchy, it's familiar yet all new. Everything I want in a party soundtrack. Funk+Rock+Soul+ Pop
Great album. This is the most exciting band coming out of Detroit right now. This is modern Motown. Funk, soul, and rock and roll done right.
