Second Guess [Bonus CD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
British dance-pop trio Reel People's full-length debut is a throwback to the mid-'90s heyday of acid jazz, particularly the Brand New Heavies. Like that collective, the focus on Second Guess is on '70s-style smooth jazz grooves in the Steely Dan or Blackbyrds mode, the chorused guitars, rubbery fretless bass, and electric piano lines updated with crisp electronic beats.

Elsewhere, soul and dance-pop are the order of the day, with the single "Can't Stop" a particularly intoxicating high point. [The 2004 edition sports a bonus disc containing six live tracks and two remixes.]
