Brassy has yet to meet a funky bassline it did not like. In fact, through the entirety of the quartet's second U.S. release, "Gettin Wise," the thunk-thunk springy bass reigns supreme. This can pose a problem, with many of the songs on the album sounding alike. After a while, there can be a blurring effect. That said, the set is good in small doses, but the oft-processed vocals of Muffin Spencer sometimes drain the tunes of life. But rockin' party tracks like "Hit 'Em Hard" and "Turn This Thing Up" demand your immediate attention. Also included is a bonus disc containing remixes and an extra track.—KC
