Notes:
A Funk Odyssey is the fifth studio album by British funk band Jamiroquai. The album was released on 3 September 2001 in the United Kingdom by Sony Soho Square and 11 September 2001 by Epic Records in the United States.

Japan got the album a week earlier (29 August) together with "Do It Like We Used To Do" and "Deeper Underground" as bonus tracks.

All versions of the album (other than the Japanese release) also include as a hidden track "So Good To Feel Real", a funky jam recorded just before the album had to be delivered to the record company. The track on the album, which fades out after a couple of minutes was recorded in a single take and was never completed.

A Funk Odyssey is the first Jamiroquai album to be produced by Rick Pope.

I would love to know if they are going to reissue this on vinyl. The original lp is overpriced.

Despite the success the English group Jamiroquai hardly speaks to the imagination. On the music is not much. Since the debut 1993 Jamiroquai Emergency On Planet Earth in a flawless blend of house and the soul of the 1970s, with the funk of Stevie Wonder a musical reference is in. The singer (the ones with the fur CAP) does it nice on MTV but few will recognize him as they run into him on the street, and even fewer people will know his name (Jason Kay). The group is noticeable shot from the dance-culture where the people behind the music usually keep a certain anonymity. It is not very strange that Jamiroquai, despite a few sizable hits, never the real mega has achieved status. With A Funk Odyssey, the group will probably few new fans to. It is again a high-quality plate, but even after several spins there is no ' killer track ' like for example Deeper Underground. The music away as usual, but the non-binding nature that has always been present, threatens to prevail. It is time that Jamiroquai reinvents himself otherwise it will destroy the group a lot of people.

Another essential for the Jamiroquai lover, this album features billboard hits such as "Little L" and "Love Foolosophy", a departure from the more acid jazz element of earlier albums, there is a omnipresence disco and boogie influence. Sort of a modern disco vibe. Some songs drift into more singer-songwriter classifications such as "Black Crow". These additions are decent, but the instrumental component of the album (Main Vein, 21 Zero) is more effective in my opinion [delving into the realm of blacksploitation overtones]. 5/5

I would just L-O-V-E to know if anybody out there in Discogs knows about the UK Test Pressing of this album. I have heard all the tracks from it, and the uniqueness of the production. It's vastly different from the official release. Not to mention a special surprise that made it's way to the Dynamite album! I have no idea how many copies exist (CD or vinyl), I hope that this gets updated soon. Great album, may the funk be with you! #Jamirolove
