This is the album that introduced me to Fila Brazillia, which then led me to track down every other album they released. It will always be a special one to me. It's a shame I discovered these guys so close to the end of their partnership. However, between the Cutler and Steve Cobby's solo stuff, the good music does continue from at least half of the duo. I still hope that one day we will see a reunion tour or album from Fila. As to this specific album, I still think it is my favorite.

<I>Jump Leads</I> might just be the pinnacle of Fila Brazillia’s long career, and that’s praise indeed! This album definitely ranks among their best work and that quality is evident from the very first track, “Bumblehaum,” which goes from an organ solo to a groovy piece of work. “Motown Coppers” is blip-funk at its finest, and “Spill the Beans” has so much of the blues in it, you’ll be depressed for days. As with any good work, the track continually change, thus staving off any possibility of stagnation or boredom. “We Build Arks” is so catchy, it’ll get stuck in your head like a nail. The closing track, “The Green Green Grass of Homegrown,” merges country-western music with the Fila sensibilities. Needless to say, it’s great. So is this album.
