Album Review

Reviewed 2011-07-20

Femi Kuti is the oldest son of the well-known Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, who was known for his Afrobeat music. Having worked with his father a bit of his father’s musical influenced has rubbed off to Femi Kutti, and has developed his own distinctive style.

This is a high-energy album with that signature big, funk sound. There is a a definite political edge to this album.

Try 1,3, 4, 6

1. Big sound that hooks you right in. Catchy.
2. There’s a political dimension to this song. Funky.
3. Upbeat, funky music-bed about politics in Africa.
4. Catchy opening tune that appears to have a bit of Latin influence. But then the words kick in and it is about bad government in Africa.
5. Reminds me of old Bollywood tunes from 1970s. It is that catchy opening bars.
Fast-paced number.
6. Title song. Peppy sounds. Lots of horns.
7. Fast paced opening & the lyrics come in after a minute or so.
8. It is a bit monotonous. Political song.
9. A bit on the mellow side & also sad.
10. Starts off peppy, but the lyrics certainly are not.
11. Mid-tempo. Like most songs has a nice opening riff.
12. Has a catchy chorus refrain.
13. Hard hitting political song, where the lyrcis dominate.
14. Another hard hitting political song. Lyrics dominate.
