Gravity [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Some moderately interesting late-'80s James Brown sessions are featured on Gravity, including an above-average Brown vocal and some up-to-date production on the title track. But the album has the sound and feel of Brown trying to catch up with contemporary trends, a sad thing since so many hip-hoppers borrowed from Brown's work in the first place. [This 2012 expanded edition nearly doubles the album's running length by including seven bonus tracks, including three alternate versions of the album's big hit, "Living in America."]
