Appreciate thumps in with a fat charged up beat on the bass end with Jack Splash on the high end of his range wanting you just to appree..ciate. Plugging up the gaps is the twang of some funk fuelled guitar riffs, horn curls paving way for some Tamborine accompaniment. Receiving a lot of radio airplay, almost as much as Appreciate, When She Smiles She Lights The Sky is a soft ballad with well executed beats backed by vocals of " ba ba baba", a wonderfully ambient tune it's subtle hand claps and muted guitar slide in to emphasise the layed back feel. Dropping in a “girl” or "oh yeah" with every break Jack adds his own style to the CD, however similar to André 3000 he still manages to bust out some funk fuelled tunes to get your ass wriggling. Busting out the booty movers The Girl Said… Give it to me! fires out a screamer with feisty organ stabs, Wa wa guitar, kit fills and turns. André, "Whoops" I meant Jack splash soars up the higher end of the scale doing his thing accompanied by the real gritty funk.
With no intention of taking anything away from Plantlifes new album, its similarities and influences are undeniable, it still remains fresh with it's intent of feel good tunes and an optimistic approach to shaking your thang.All tracks are made with the sole intention of making you get up and then get back down.
