Thanks in part to the more rigid beat, Benson pares down his style to its rhythmic essentials, refusing to spray notes all over the place at randomand as a result, the record cooks and dances. […]

mctagga9 @ RateYourMusic
Unfortunately, this is mainly just commercial funk/smooth jazz. It is barely listenable (Siberian Workout has some moments that make the album passable) […]

Soulstrut
The best song is saved for last with Shell Of A Man, a slow paced track with some really nice stabs running throughout. […]
