A fantastic album from The Playlist – a group that features Jazzy Jeff
as the executive producer, and which features an all-star lineup that includes vocals from Glenn Lewis, Rich Medina, Eric Roberson, Musinah, and Jeff
himself – alongside instrumentation from Kaidi Tatham on flute and keyboards, lots more keyboards from Daniel Crawford, Eric Lau, James Poyser, and Andre Harris – and even some sharp horns from Jeff Bradshaw
, Matt Cappy, and Rick Tate! Electronic soul never feels this collaborative – and while the beats and keyboards provide a familiar groove, there's a lot more dynamic energy taking place between all the many wonderful parts – a setting that seems to have Glenn Lewis sounding especially great. Titles include "Stone Cold", "This Could Be Us", "Distraction", "Faceless", "Superman", "1995", "Die Empty", "Chasing Goosebumps", and "Defeated".
