All Music Guide - Troy Carpenter
Jamiroquai made a large initial splash in 1993 with Emergency on Planet Earth, a psychedelic melange of tight funky rhythms, acid rock intimations, and '70s soul melodies. Frontman Jay Kay introduces himself with an environmentally oriented manifesto inside the sleeve, and his lyrics smack of idealist save the planet revolution.

For a debut, Emergency shows quite a range of diversity, from the up-tempo jazzy instrumental "Music of the Mind" to the stop-start funk of "Whatever It Is, I Just Can't Stop."

    Good Album

    Songs like "emergency on planet earth" is forever enjoyable."Digin' out" and "music of the mind" is really enjoyable instrumental pieces."Whatever it is,I just can't stop" and "Blow Your Mind" are unique jazz performances.This album is unique but not as splendid as "Synkronized" or "Travelling Without Moving".
