<I>Straight from the Fridge</I> hints at the chilled quality of the album perhaps, but don’t be fooled, James Hardway has his jazzy stamp all over the album. “Happiness Breaks” is a mid-tempo house track, full of warm vibes and good feelings, while “Earth Runnings” is smooth soul with a great underlying bass. “Dangerblue” and “Going Home” go for a bluesy feeling; “Jump Up Natural” reminds us of Hardway’s drum ‘n’ bass roots; and “Speak Softly” has a Jamaican house vibe to it. “Can’t Show Love” swings the sadness away, and “Uptown” jazzes things up considerably. James’ new sound has matured since <I>Moors and Christians</I>, and I, for one, like it.
