So much Soul. This is just what is missing from electronic for me now a days *old man voice*. Full of soul and is just interesting beyond the vocal melody, the musical behind it is just fantastic. Some great rhythms and structurally complex. MOST OF ALL GROOVE!! You can hear the experience and years of song writing come through. So smooth
