Customer Reviews

I actually really like this.

I'm not a big fan of jazz fusion, so I really like this change. It's awesome in its differentness. It's also really cool that he's experimenting with new stuff. I respect that in a musician.

Not the old FTR that I miss.

What happened to stuff like Jazzhole, Yoga Fire, Tire Swing, The Lonely Traveler, etc? There's no jazz here. His best stuff was the jazz+hip hop stuff. But it's not here :(

Different but still Awesome!

I fell in love with FTR when he did a remix of "You let Me Down" by Billie Holiday. While I do miss his jazz fusion, this is a turn in a different direction that isn't necessarily bad, just not expected.

He's taking cues from the likes of Bonobo and Flying Lotus (two artists which i adore)

Still, great music to drive to :)
