I really enjoyed this album. This is a solid jam/jazz/funk/acid rock offering with lots to dig in to especially if you're musically inclined. The record was joyful and playful and featured impressive musicianship. I especially enjoyed the use of the synth which in no way made the music sound dated (as synths can do). Great record to put on to get people dancing as well.

“Emergency on Planet Earth” by Jamiroquai (1993) I’ve never heard of this album or this group. Sounds like a white guy trying to make money pretending to be black. And sometimes what it sounds like is exactly what it is. Cultural appropriation at its worst. His faux Stevie Wonder impersonation is embarrassing. Derivative ripoff. I had to skip ahead. It got worse. This album screams. “Look at me! I’m British and I’m so fashionably and counterculturally cool! Buy my CD so I can pay my session musicians!” Good bass player. Nice fluegelhorn. Strings are terrible. There’s a lot that I could say about how poorly this was composed, arranged, performed, mastered, and mixed, but I just don’t want to. Regarding the, ah, lyrics—they lack poetry, and the social commentary is like skipping rocks on a fetid pond. The self awareness in his self aware lyrics is aware of a pretty silly self. “Blow Your Mind” should’ve been titled “Blow Your Alleged Mind”. This album SUCKS. 1/5

God dammnit this an incredible album. I really struggle to think of any other record that is this interesting AND funky. Out of control momentum that is impossible to stop moving to, I reckon you could power a small Dutch village with the energy this thing emits. Every single track is out of this world but my big highlights are Too Young to Die,and Revolution 1993 (Any track (in the demo) that includes "TAKE IT TO THE BRIDGE" is an obvious 5/5). Fricken sick lead break on Whatever It Is. There's even some bonus cuica in Music Of The Mind. Also my best friend the funky bell sound is back all over it but especially on the opening track and Too Young.

I've never listened to Jamiroquai before and had no idea what to expect. But I was very positively surprised! It's an interesting mix of styles, nice to hear some rarely used instruments and a lot of variety.

Cet album était de grande, il est en revanche dommage que Jamiroquai se soit endormi sur sa table de mixage. En effet, après 7 sons tous plus impressionnants les uns que les autres, Jami, ayant offert une folle énergie pendant ces plus de 30mn de musique, se trouve en effet un peu las. Le voilà qui se met donc à fermer les yeux quelques secondes pour reprendre ses esprits, mais ces quelques secondes se transformeront en de longues minutes. C'est dommageable, mais n'enlève rien à la qualité de l'album pré-sieste.

Après une série catastrophique entamée juste après l'album culte de l'ultra-sexuel Marvin Gaye, la musique de bon goût vient de faire son retour dans le générateur par le biais de Jamiroquai. Pour l'anecdote, à la veille de la sortie de ce premier album, les membres du groupe fêtèrent leur futur succès lors d'une soirée particulièrement arrosée. Malheureusement pour eux, le chanteur ne s'arrêta jamais de gobeloter et s'endormit au petit matin sur la table de mixage allumée le cul à l'air. Résultat des courses : une fin d'album totalement cacophonique doublée d'un xylostome.

Don't really have alot to say on this one. It's right in the middle of 3 for me. Nothing that really bothers me per se but nothing that really excites me too much either except maybe the use of the dijeridoo. It just makes me want to listen to Stevie Wonder instead.

Best Song: Too Young to Die. Dancy, groovy, with a hint of melancholy lyrics. Absolute jam. Worst Song: There isn't one. Overall: May more lyrically interesting than I expected, full of dark gems mixed with funky, high energy music that makes you want to move. Feels like the dance album for the apocalypse. "Death can seem to bear no relevance Bet you wished you'd danced to the music What you want to do is kill yourself Still you don't dance to the music"

Jamiroquai is an artist I haven't really engaged with before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. This is an album that really draws into focus the fine line between appreciation and appropriation. Unfortunately, I feel like it's more the latter. While the funky grooves are fairly bespoke and well-made, I can't help but feel like the singer is cosplaying as Stevie Wonder circa 1972, and that makes me deeply uncomfortable. Why not just listen to Stevie, instead? The generic "socially conscious" lyrics feel more unintentionally Flight of the Conchords than Marvin Gaye. It's a disservice to all the Black artists they freely lift from. Further, the name (a lazy mashup of jam and Iroquois) and the Indigenous iconography used for the group's buffalo man logo just amplifies my disdain. I'll take a pass. Favourite track: "Blow Your Mind"

I haven't heard much of Jamiroquai before now, but it's definitely better than I imagined. Everything has a good sound that always keeps up the vibe. Very nice music, more of something to just chill and groove to than keep on in the background, but I'm not complaining. And a late happy 25th to Traveling Without Moving!

I can't claim I listened to the whole thing (two hours what) but I did listen to a lot of it. Acid jazz is a real genre-bending kind of music and this album really takes it to the next level. I think there's a didgeridoo in the first song? It's cool, not much more to say.

Embarrassingly I'd only been familiar with the band's "hits" so was happy to give a deeper dive here. Didn't know this was their debut album and *wow* - elements of 70s Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock combined with 90s production... Perfect instrumentation - the horns, Rhodes piano, percussion... My initial favourite is "Whatever It Is, I Just Can't Stop" holymoly. That growly bass is the bomb. This is the first strong 4 i'm giving to something I'd never heard before - this will get many many listens.

Honestly, I was ready to go into this and hate it. I remember Jamiroquai as a schmucky doofus who had that Virtual Insanity song and the cool video where he was walking funny on a multi plane treadmill. This record is more akin to a funk protest record, and with a couple quibbles I have in a couple spots this is entirely listenable and would be great background music for a party and would fit into a playlist with the likes of Stevie Wonder or Parliment. Nice surprise.

What a surprisingly great find. Sounds a lot like Stevie Wonder (especially vocally), which is a huge compliment. All I knew of Jamiroquai was that one video that MTV used to show on repeat back in say 1997. I believe it was for a song called "Virtual Insanity". All I know for sure is Chris Rock made fun of it when he hosted the VMA's around that time. Nevertheless, this came dangerously close to a 5 for me. This album compelled me to put in a 30-minute sprint on the treadmill I enjoyed it so much. Might be just a BIT too long. Tighten this baby up a bit and we'd be looking at a solid 5.

Bald 30 Jahre alt, und rein von der Message her aktueller denn je, hm?! Zeigt einem mal wieder wie doof die ganze Menschheit ist; zugegeben ich selbst eingeschlossen aber auch Mr. Jay Kay himself, der nach dem Ding hier ja auch in erster Linie durch nen spektakulären Hang zu fetten Karren auffiel. Komisch, oder? Album fand ich jedenfalls erstaunlich geil beim wieder Anhören nach all den Jahren. Auf der Autobahn übrigens. Spitzen-Cuvee aus irgendwas mit Afrobeat, Jazzfusion und Neosoul, wirklich zeitlos auch. Und so ausgereift für ein Debüt! Ach, scheiss Kokain ey, man wünschte wirklich, er wäre weiter bei Verstand geblieben.

I got so tired of hearing Virtual Insanity back in the day that it was hard to be objective on this. Jay Kay always sounded too much like Stevie Wonder to me, but really, you don’t have that much choice who you sound like, and it’s better I suppose than sounding like Leonard Cohen. On closer listening, the arrangements really stand out. The band is tight, the sound is smooth and sophisticated. The instrumental jam is a bonus. The song-writing is unstructured and free flowing, though some tracks go on for a bit longer than they should. I know some reviewers poked fun at the socially conscious lyrics, but that to me, was a more a sign of the times – protest bands in the 60s and 70s were praised not mocked.

The funky soul tunes remind me of a refreshed Stevie Wonder and the jazz tunes show that the band knows how to play. They play a wide range of styles and even mix some disco in with funk in Revolution 1993 and, I hate to say it, but I like the disco bit too.

Jamiroquai! Now there's someone I haven't really thought of in about 20 years, but boy did I love them when Travelling Without Moving came out. I'm not familiar with this album, but it's a jazzy, trippy, fun listen. Heck of a debut album. Jay Kay is a solid vocalist, full of energy and soul. He gets the Stevie comparisons a lot. He's not quite that good, but he's a lot of fun to listen to. Love the funky, jazz inflected arrangements. Strong Earth Wind & Fire and Sly Stone vibe, which I love. The politically driven songwriting doesn’t go super deep, but by 1993 pop music standards they were actually ahead of the curve. Fave Songs: Whatever It Is, I Just Can't Stop; If I Like It, I Do It; Emergency on Planet Earth; When You Gonna Learn; Didgin' Out

4.4 - This album captures that 70s soul/funk vibe perfectly. The band sounds impeccable with Jon Kay at the helm. It's impossible to not hear the Stevie Wonder parallels although this album eschews some Stevie's emotional depth, maintaining a non-stop party tempo throughout.

Kinda tough to judge this. Ultimately, great music, great funk, great songwriting, really great musicians. I don't want to take away from those things. However... much of it is so similar to the likes of EW&F, Sly & TFS, Parliament, etc. There's no doubt where the influence came from. They've certainly added their touch. I really like it, but struggle to find the differences. It's not quite as difficult in their newer stuff. Traveling w/out moving, virtual insanity, canned heat. Those stand out to me.

Very funky. I was interested in hearing more from this band - my first exposure to them was when my sister downloaded one of their songs when I was in middle school. I found their sound exciting. I asked her about it yesterday and she said she probably heard it in the movie Center Stage, which I never saw but is apparently about dancers. On this listen, for some reason I couldn't shake the perception that the singer was emulating Stevie Wonder, and that bothered me. A reference point that occurred to me, but didn't bother me, was KC and the Sunshine Band - another band I heard for the first time in middle school. Waffling between 3 and 4 on this one.

I was kinda surprised to see this on the list, but wikipedia tells me Jamiroquai were actually a whole lot more popular in the nineties than I thought, and have influenced a whole bunch of people, so ok, fair enough! It's funk and soul done competently enough, but it feels uncomfortably appropriative, and the way it tries to lay on a message is pretty cringe. I've no plans to revisit this, but probably won't object to it coming up on shuffle... Fave track - "Revolution 1993", I guess?

Els singles de Jamiroquai solien entrar bé, sobretot al llarg dels 90. I el personatge en sí sempre m'ha fet gràcia. Recuperar el seu primer disc m'ha portat bons records d'aquella època, i trobo que musicalment el grup va aportar una fusió interessant de diferents estils. Sense segurament voler inventar res, van crear un segell propi, reconeixible, i amb el plus de la veu i lideratge d'un cantant de gran carisma.

Non penso di aver mai ascoltato un disco dei Jamiroquai dall'inizio alla fine prima di questo. Davvero sfizioso, c'ha un groove fantastico e il batterista c'ha un tocco davvero invidiabile (tipo su Revolution 1993) ma un po' tutti sembrano musicisti con le palle. I pezzi sono un po' influenzati dal genere e rischiano di passare un po' in sottofondo certe volte però quando parte l'incastro fatto bene fa partire il fomento. Diciamo che per me è un 3.5 che non mi sento di promuovere a 4 solo perché artisticamente forse i contenuti sono un po' pochi anche se è un disco che risentirei volentieri.

A me piacciono i Jamiroquai. Li ho anche visti dal vivo (Sziget 2008), bravissimi, e Jay Kay ha uno stile inconfondibile. L'unica cosa è che non sono mai stati in grado di fare breccia nel mio cuore completamente. Di quest'album non ci sono canzoni degne di nota o che mi hanno colpito particolarmente, che rimane solo un piacevole ascolto.

I hope I don't offend anyone when I say that I was dumbfounded when I looked up Jamiroquai and found out the main vocalist is not a black woman. In any case, Jay's voice fits well with a sexy sounding and forward-thinking piece of funky jazz, though the quality greatly differs between tracks. Standouts are Emergency on Planet Earth and Blow Your Mind. 3/5.

There’s some nice tracks on here (Blow Your Mind is a highlight) and a decent example of acid jazz. Is this one for the ages, though? Are there better examples of the genre out there. Yes. Is there a lot of filler in this album - yes. Are you going to enjoy hearing this on a sunny day outside with you friend as it plays in the background? Sure, why not?

Cool, clever and mediocre Stevie Wonder impersonator who reintroduces 70s soul and funk with a touch of cabaret theatrics on the album. Good rhythms and creative arrangements (especially when using horns). (6/10) Favourtie Tracks: When You Gonna Learn?, Blow Your Mind, Whatever It Is, I Can't Stop

Astronaut looking at earth with gun to his head meme. It was jamiroquai all along. Jamiroquai were pretty much the first band I got in to when I was about 11 or some other pre pubescent meaningless age. So in all this time asking who is going to ease me into jazz I had already worked that one out before my balls had dropped. All sounds extremely noncey this write up. Maybe that's the influence of Jay Kay.

I've heard singles from Jamiroquai but never an entire album. The vibe is definitely similar throughout though. The unique instrumental flourishes like the didgeridoo really add to it.

What if Stevie Wonder but young, hip and playing didgeridoo? I have an inkling that this isn't even Jamiroquai's best album but it seems like these albums are all about what was most influential. So along comes this UK band doing something very cool with a sound that was previously what your uncle and his mates with the funny cigarettes grooved to. And there's a didgeridoo, which somehow legitimised it for every busking backpacker trying to get beer money.

Every person's life is divided into two segments: the time before and after discovering that Jamiroquai's lead singer is not only a man but white. Anyway, they make great music; I don't know which would be their "best" album since I don't know them that well but I always enjoy what I hear, and this album is no exception. I will take slight points off for the frantic beat on Revolution 1993 that was so stressful I had to skip the track. Other than that, I dig it! Favorite tracks: Hooked Up, When You Gonna Learn, Blow Your Mind, Emergency on Planet Earth. Album art: Extremely basic, just the silhouette of the guy with horns. That's their logo though, I respect that. But this feels super lazy. 3.5/5

Funk and jazz combined in a pretty trippy mix, with doomsayer lyrics: an recurring theme through the ages. The intro track: When You Gonna Learn is the most exciting song on the album and from there it is an alright but not thrilling listen. If it had been more trippy, maybe it would redeem or make for a more outstanding album but as it is, it is just alright.

Is Jamiroquai good? I didn't know. I assumed they were annoying, but for no good reason. Bold cover. Let's give it a listen. Is that a digeridoo? That's fun. But I'm getting a strong hint of "I wish I were Stevie Wonder". Which I guess fair enough. Love the horns, strings, all the layers really. Sharp and clean. Funky. Having just done the Shaft soundtrack this album suffers in contrast, but still pretty good. Not sure it brings anything new to the table, though, more homage making than ground breaking. As a whole the album also lacks the attitude, joy, spark, conviction, magic, something to really put it over the line for me. I looked up a video to round out my impression and got "Virtual Insanity" which is again clever but not quite there, like if OK Go had just one idea and didn't push it to the point of joy. All the ingredients are there for this to be an enjoyable listen. But they don't quite come together like I want them to. I don't know. Maybe it is the cultural appropriation elephant in the room making me queasy. Without any context I might give this four stars, but I'm sticking with a "pretty good" three star rating because, well, context.

I remember this group from the 1990s. They were big in the UK at least. I never heard this debut album before. It's an energetic funk record with strong elements of jazz, soul, disco, etc. I can see why they were popular at the time, since they have a more exciting sound than most chart-topping pop. However, the problem with these kinds of "revival" style is that the earlier stuff inspiring it is normally better. So, in this case, I'd much rather go back and listen to the greats of funk, jazz, etc., rather than a slick 1990s update of it. After much thought, I've decided I don't really care about originality... but if you are creating sounds that already exist, you need to do it with a sense of "authenticity" I guess? This feels a bit like a plasticky pastiche of some better music that came before. Also, I always found the frontman insufferably annoying, so maybe all of this is my own prejudice against him. In any case, 2/5 to give credit for good musicianship and the mostly groovy results.

~When you gonna learn?- wasn't expecting the digeridoo at the start, they might be using some sort of saxophone or violin(i don't exactly know what) but it sounds great, the song was good until the didgeridoo part because it just broke the rhythm and sounded very weird. ~Too young to die***- the instrumental puts me in such a groovy and fun mood along with the Dudu Dudu s, definitely put a really big smile on my face, although the song is 6 minutes long it really didn't feel like it. ~Hooked up- a bit repetitive at the end, a lot more instrument solos than singing which I don't. necessarily like but at least they sound fantastic. ~If I like it, I do it- beautiful lyrics, the bongo(?) solo was a really fun touch. ~Music of the mind- slowest song yet, the violin(?) gives it a very beautiful vibe, can't say I'm a fan of 6 minutes of pure instrumental but at least it's well-executed. ~Emergency on Planet Earth*- very beautiful message and because of that may be even one of my favorites. ~Whatever it is, I just can't stop- most forgettable yet, would've liked for something more impactful to happen with the instrumental like a sudden tempo change or a climax of the song, it feels a bit too linear. ~Blow your mind- this just feels so so so insanely dragged out just because they wanted to hit that 8-minute mark, even more so because of that the last 4 minutes are just instrumental, just because it's well done doesn't mean it can automatically stand on its own. ~Revolution 1993**- wasn't expecting the instrumental change especially at the start but I was happily surprised, also has a beautiful message, the woman's voice in the background makes the song even more special, would've definitely preferred it to be a lot shorter but at least it doesn't feel dragged out. ~Didgin' out- the didgeridoo is back for some reason, the only reason I don't completely dislike it is that the album started and ended with it and that brings it some cohesiveness, I don't know why they'd finish the album with an all-instrumental song instead of something more interesting though. OVERALL whilst it is a pretty cohesive album it's not at all my music taste. still, I was surprised that I didn't dislike it. it has it's high points and low points. I'm sure it will work better for the people that dig this genre a lot more. it's likely, though, that I would listen to it again if I wanna be in a good mood. one thing I can say is that, whilst the lyrics about social problems are pretty surface level, I think that they at least do their job of transmitting the message that they wanted to say.

Hey, I love Virtual Insanity! Oh...that's not on here? What the hell? "What The hell?" indeed. I always thought this band was a one hit wonder, which I guess is only really true on this side of the Atlantic. I figured there had to be something of value here since this album both made the list and doesn't include the only song I know from them. There is...kinda. Everything pretty much sounds like it's about 20 years older than it's release date. I think the singers name is Jay, but I prefer "the hat guy", the hat guy is a decent enough singer. He definitely has heard Stevie Wonder before and I'm pretty sure he really liked what he heard. The music itself is...also decent. Unsurprisingly the music also sounds like it could've come out of the 70's for much of the run time. It's funky. It's good in places for a bit...but then it goes on and on and tests my patience. It would be too harsh to say that I didn't like this album. It was just fine I guess. Why would I listen to this when George Clinton albums exist? It would've been more tolerable with about 10-15 minutes trimmed. It just doesn't do anything good enough to really justify listening to. Sorry hat guy. Virtual Insanity was pretty dope though. Maybe that album is better?

It was a wave of nostalgia and the the cultural appropriation realization kicked in - the 90s innocence of a random Brit who scats mediocrely adopting the name of an American tribe he has nothing to do with it and littering the didgeridoo throughout an slightly overlong and plodding album… at times it’s good - but it peters off sharply towards the end. The musicianship is virtuosic but there are few songs that are memorable here. Jay has a couple stronger albums than this - despite being more banker w*nk later on with songs about fast cars and yuppie love.

I guess this was unique when it first came out: some white guys from the UK doing soul and funk, but now that everyone and their dog has copied this sound it no longer feels very fresh.

I'm gonna have to side with Nick's review on Emergency on Planet Earth, as most of this album feels contrived, with Jamiroquai stepping into a style that was historically marketable. However, the historical appropriation of cultural music/stylings of black American musicians by white British musicians is well documented, so this whole project feels uncomfortable to listen to.
