Yes, great Album indeed ! Modern Sound with vintage " Mediterranean Flavour " : like a perfect Cocktail . Enjoy !!!

Album of the year, for sure. Classy production, heavy sound, beautiful project, jazzy-sparkling atmospheres. Finally, musicians in a dance album, FINALLY!

i just heard one of their songs on the radio and thought "cool , they are playing some edition speciale" only to find it's a copycat band .
still very cool even if it's just a tribute band.

A masterpiece but, (unfortunately), nothing new after the Napoli Centrale project...

What a record! Got a 3rd repress, outstanding production, even the sleeve is fantastic, paste-up print on a heavy thick cardboard, just what you could find on any 70's US record...

I was put on by my NYC collector fam... truly an inspiring release of refreshing jazz funky boogie disco tunes with some Afro seasoning... The recording and press is impeccable, enabling the best elements of the production to shine through. All the tracks are melodic and vibrant. My fav is B4 - Parev Ajere... That should be a 12 Inch single, letting the individual members group expand their musical chops!!! 2 👍🏽 Up!

Great album from beginning to end. I can see why this is selling like hotcakes. Vocals are a bit wonky at times, but the music & production more than make up for it.

Great nu disco/nu funk.

LP of the year, it really brings back the incredible sound of Napoli funk where it belongs! 5 stars!
