The first full length from Mateo & Matos that I could really admire. Before THE MANY SHADES OF MATEO AND MATOS, I felt the duo were relying too much on simple loops and rhythms -- but here, they finally integrate those elements with real soul and emotion. The music feels more authentic and organic. The album as a whole shows a little more personality, as well, with cute little interludes, such as “Rhythms of the Universe.” But the tracks like “The Real Thing” (a remake of a Stevie Wonder song), with its counterpoint vocals, are the reason the album stands out. “Got the Message” and “Don’t Ever Stop Lovin’” are appropriately funky and soulful, while “Body-N-Soul” shows that they can do more with a vocal than just loop it. “Stomp Your Feet” is deep and somewhat dreamy, considering how the track exhorts you to get on the floor.
