    I got into NOMO while I was learning all about Fela Kuti and Afrobeat. This second album for them (that I believe got much wider release than their first) has all the trappings of Afrobeat, with a healthy dose of jazz and funk in there as well. It's well produced and a couple of tracks even feel familiar once the album is all said and done. It does have this by-the-numbers feel to it though. I can't shake that it feels very much like well-trained college students doing their best to emulate the heart of 1970s Afro-funk, but missing all of the soul. Very rarely do any of the performances feel impassioned. I hear nothing raw or biting. Just good playing that sort of washes over you, even if it's - as I said - very well made. Their next albums, Ghost Rock and Invisible Cities, sound to me much more innovative and interesting. New Tones is a fine album to have in your collection if you really love Afrobeat. But at no point does it even come close to touching the same sphere as what inspired them.
