Album Review

Jamiroquai's sophomore record had all the slinky grooves and great musicianship of the debut, but it also offered a better set of songs and more ambitious musical themes. As with Emergency on Planet Earth, Jason Kay's dead-on impression of Stevie Wonder and Sly Stone drives the group's blend of acid jazz and funky R&B. "Space Cowboy" and "Light Years" were hits all over the world, and made the band stars in Europe and Japan, while substantial clubplay earned them a degree of recognition for American audiences. But Jamiroquai refused to be known as simply a party band; the group takes on social issues such as homelessness and Native Americans' rights.

Customer Reviews

They're good. They were great once.

Jay Kay used to write realtively complex, catchy songs before he was content to churn out base level pseudo-funk that "any fool could remix" (his words, not mine). Yeah, the new stuff has great hooks & is fun to hear on a dance floor but the quality isn't there. Return of the Space Cowboy is possibly the best of the Jamiroquai work. It's still fresh & exciting like Emergency on Planet Earth, without the cloying social responsibility.


Possibly the best Jamiroquai album! This one is very unexpected and takes you for quite a ride. Every track is something fresh and new. Amazing!

Still one fo the best!

I used to love this band, especially at it's core. It was so dreamy, yet at the same time you wanted to dance to it. Now, I'd have to say that Jay Kay really lost his way, not that he's bad, but the elements in the pure band Jamiroquai have definitely limited his full potential. He had something going, and then somebody in the band leaves. But, I digress. This is the album that made me fall in love with Jamiroquai. Traveling Without Moving was like the honeymoon.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Active beginning in the early '90s, Jamiroquai has amassed a steady stream of hits in its native U.K. and experienced chart success in just about every other area of the world, with an irresistible blend of house rhythms and '70s-era soul/funk (the latter, especially, leading early on to claims of Stevie Wonder imitations). The band has gone though several lineup changes during their career, but through it all their leader has remained singer/songwriter Jason Kay (aka J.K.). Born on December 30,...
