There is a lot of teasing recognition but very little realization. The record passes easily and quickly. Just as Jaar's treated instruments blur the line between digital and acoustic, his voice-- calm and husky, somewhat affected-- saddles up to the soul samples and film dialogue that pepper the album and confidently blends. He hums earworms-- "Replace the word 'space' with a drink and forget it"; "Too many kids finding rain in the dust"-- that ripple across his productions.
These voices-- Jaar's own or samples-- are more than melodic placeholders. The gentle house balladry of "I Got a Woman" uses a looped Ray Charles refrain and French film dialogue to evoke something more specific than the electric pianos and breakbeat can.
