"Not unlike one of its lead singer Jay Kay's much publicized Lamborghinis, the U.K. funk band Jamiroquai is primarily a vehicle for its frontman's various fetishes. Which is another way of saying that Kay loves disco and fancy retro sneakers and he wears both well. He has done so ever since he hippie-danced his way out of the acid jazz ghetto of the early '90s with Jamiroquai's revelatory debut album, Emergency on Planet Earth. That album featured Kay's bright and soulful vocals against '70s-style funk and drew obvious comparisons to Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, and sundry other icons of vintage R&B. Not too much has changed in the years since and 2005's Dynamite finds Kay and Co. delving once again into various '70s- and '80s-inspired dance sounds. Similar to 2001's dazzlingly slick Funk Odyssey, Dynamite reveals Kay as a dancefloor eclectic, inclined to grab as much from Chic and Parliament as Kajagoogoo, the Police, and Terry Callier. Keeping to this grab bag aesthetic, Kay makes the most of his experimentation with some "vocal bass synthetics" on the hard funk title track. Also engaging is the melancholy soul-folk of "Seven Days in Sunny June" and the similarly quiet storm-ready ballad "Talullah." On the funky side of things, "Starchild" finds Kay proclaiming the coming of a disco superman while "Time Won't Wait" is an infectious Off the Wall-era Michael Jackson boogie fest with Kay urging people to make their dreams come true over a bed of pulsating disco beats. The Jamiroquai faithful would accept nothing less." (AllMusic review by Matt Collar)

"There are some albums lost to time that never got the chance to shine, Takako's debut is one of them. It's really good, but not anything out of this world. I would've loved to see her discography and how she'd evolve as an artist, but sadly we'll never see that. So what we get has to be enough, and it's quite a fun listen. It's quite mellow but funky and beautiful enough to warrant attention all throughout it's runitme, I reccomend it to anyone that likes jazz/funk, city pop. The middle part of the album is least intresting, but there is nothing that is really bad, overall a really consistent listen." (Album of the Year user review)
"This album is so mysterious the artist herself just got disappeared and never released anything again after her debut release. There was little to no information about her.
Takako Mamiya's 'Love Trip' is a travel back in time making lost memories to someone you love throughout the night using jazz and city pop genre to dwell on the past of sweet memories with agony, compunction, and excruciating misery. It's a cycle of a person's relationship with their companion.
Japan has full of treasures but it's crazily strange that they've got something to pique someone's interest in any forms of media. But anyway, it's a great record. I forgot to review this very soon because I played it more than five times now.
Miss Mamiya, wherever you are, you're a legend making this album." (Album of the Year user review)
"Love Trip is the first and only record by Takako Mamiya, and it is the first city pop album that comes on my mind when I think about this genre. This is one of the city pop classics: a masterpiece, a jazz-style album without any song that does not fit perfectly. Takako’s voice embraces you and your soul and doesn’t let you escape from this music gem. Also, we have to mention the album cover art, which is 10/10. Sad is the fact that after this album she disappeared from the world of singing. She never released any album after this record.
The first song, “Love Trip”, is relaxing and syncopated, a perfect introduction for this love trip, which also includes lovely lyrics. “Chinese Restaurant” it is very similar in terms of sound, introducing us into a love acquaintance, a bittersweet nostalgia scene. One of the best vocal perfomances in the city pop history is “真夜中のジョーク” (translated to “Midnight Joke”), a soft track where the night melts and which has a mysterious but beautiful and solid atmosphere, matching with the sweetest melody; after a few listens, it is impossible to get it out of your head. “One More Night” and “Morning Flight” are two of my favourite tracks from this record, both songs has a groovy bass and a gorgeous arrangement that do not leave the listener indifferent; they always put me in a good mood. “たそがれは銀箔の…” is a nice piece, filled with cool tones and nice rhythm changes. Takako’s singing the たそがれ line is one of the dreamiest moments of the album. The last track, “What a Broken Heart Can Do”, recovers the first song’s instrumental, but changing the lyrics and where Takako is singing in perfect English. Without a doubt, the decision of including this song is quite weird, but not annoying.
This record is still a mystery, we do not know a lot about it. But it is clear that it is a classic city pop album, very refined and luxurious, without any imperfection. Besides that, time has passed very well on this musical work. Hopefully, Takako Mamiya will sing again someday." (Album of the Year user review)Learn More

B3 Dirty Air
B5 Already Gone
It’s been a rollercoaster for the Bangor group, but it’s one that only makes the fresh, invigorated pay-off of fourth LP ‘False Alarm’ all the more joyous. From the opening, ringing keys of ‘Once’ - the appropriate, aural equivalent of taking your first, squinting steps into the new-day sun - ‘False Alarm’ manages to combine a newfound sense of brave experimentation with the band’s tried-and-tested way with a sparkling hook. The idiosyncratic, Devo-esque ‘Talk’ is the strangest single they’ve ever released, but it’s still huge; ‘Nice To See You’ prowls along with a ‘Fame’-era Bowie slink, while ‘Dirty Air’ is the taut dancefloor banger that Franz Ferdinand never wrote. It’s unexpectedly weird in places, but never for the sake of it. Instead, Two Door Cinema Club have learnt how to harness their mainstream power while taking creative risks. They pay off almost every time.Learn More
