If you’re a fairly new Jamiroquai fan and don’t know much about their music, High Times will probably be the definitive must-have for you. Except for the unreleased “Runaway” and “Radio,” all the other 16 tracks have been the band’s major hits. It takes you back to the starting point, the fantastic “When You Gonna Learn,” back when they were playing legit funky tunes with ballooning bass lines. The record then plots the band’s career timeline via their hits. “Blow your Mind” comes in early, then “Virtual Insanity” then later, “Deeper Underground” and finally, “7 Days in June.” The downbeat “Corner of the Earth” appears as the starting point of the blander, ho-hum half of the record. You can most definitely notice the band’s evolution from 1992 to present and if you’re an old school follower, you will most likely pinpoint the exact coordinates of when the funk lost the fun. This makes High Times a super sweet record.
