A1 People go full-on funk with THE VISIT, which gets into its anti-capitalist stride with "The Visit." True, the lyrics might be a bit duff, but it still has a nice groove to it. You'd think that "God Loves Brixton" would be more religious than it actually is, but no one can argue with the existence of bass (the "Acappella" strips out almost everything except the chorus). The Buck Rogers samples that kick off "Some Kinda ***t" don't hint at the scatalogical funk that follows on its heels, while "Turn It Up" sounds terribly familiar. "Nil And Zero" gets political, an exhortation for education, but it's the gentle waves that start out "Pete Tong" that are particularly catchy (the track turns darker, of course). Good, but the middling rap brings it down a notch.
