    This album is superb with the overall mood it sets. All the instrumentalists are in rare form with the Mizell's trademark vocals appearing as they do to nice effect. My favorite tracks are "back to the projects" with its fast energetic energy, "This years Dream" one of two tracks penned by Hammond on this album provides a more jazzy blissful romanticized groove standing out from the other 4 tracks noticeably and "Rhodesian Thoroughfare" is another favorite of mine with the way the track takes off into a totally unique groove that spirals, twists and bullets through like a runaway funk train.
