For those who never stopped spinning the group's turn-of-the-Millennium classics, the emergence of AutomatonJamiroquai's first since 2010comes as a mixed blessing. This new LP harks back to their early work more than the sparse albums since 2001, with propulsive grooves and Jay Kay's smoothlike-butter vocals. What it doesn't provide is many reasons to turn to this disc over one of those old ones; highlights like "Shake It On" and "Nights Out In the Jungle" introduce a fresh, Random Access Memories-ian electric disco vibe, but too many others-particularly the repetitive "Summer Girl"feel like tired, recycled outtakes from the band's heyday.
