Album Notes

LIVING IN AMERICA is a radical update of the classic James Brown sound, utilizing '80s/'90s production styles. From synth bass lines to guest rappers, turntable scratches and programmed rhythm tracks, the album is a virtual textbook of post-hip-hop recording techniques. This 180 degree stylistic turn could be viewed as either bold or opportunistic, depending on your inclination. You might miss the tightly-wound funk of the JB's, but you have to admire Brown for refusing to stagnate. Regardless of the backing, it's Brown's emotive grunts, shrieks and moans that are the centerpiece here, as on any of his other albums. For the faithful, that will be enough.
