Final Grade: A
So, Taylor has given me 3 of my 4 "grade A" albums - can he do me wrong?? This album is really fantastic, not a single song I don't like. The grooves are very prominent, and there's not a lackluster on the whole thing. He is really great at making sure the groove had movement to it, which I really liked. I was very impressed by the integration of horns and strings in the songs - it was all very tasteful and always appropriate, not to mention funky as fuck. Verocai also proved that he is a master at dynamics. There was so much build in the songs, which was usually contrasted by a much softer, more mellow feel, and I always dug it. This for sure has just become one of my go-tos!
