"Rockit Soul" is the best track on this LP, IMO.

Funki Porcini abandons his "sleazy listening" style and his "experimental jazz" style for _The Ultimately Empty Million Pounds_, opting instead for some more typical downtempo jazz. Sure, "Theme from Sugar Daddy" has a nice heaviness to it, and "Wilson's Millions" seems to horn past the consciousness. "Rockit Souul" calls attention to itself with some interesting dynamic range, and "Reboot" tries to do something interesting with some samples from instructional tapes, as does "123, 3, 4." Many of the tracks, however, end up somewhat wan. "English Country Music" and "Cheasy Rider" are perfectly pleasant, but... it's nothing that we haven't heard before. Ditto for "Butler's Groove." Even the samples seem tired; I expected something more with the theme from "Bonanza" that kicks off "Nothing To Do." "Tiers of Joy" tries to redeem things with some mellow grooves, but it might be too little, too late. Where's the subversive Funki Porcini I once knew and loved?

An aptly titled album - I hope for his sake he actually made the million pounds, since the decline evident between the sublime 'Hed Phone Sex' and this is disturbing. Soulless.
