As with their breezy, beat-friendly and instantly lovable debut, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth storm through The Good The Bad And The Funky like kids in a candy shop, pausing to checklist dub, hiphop and bubble-gum pop and salting the mix with two notable covers, Lee Perry's Soul Fire and -- oh yeah! -- Giorgio Moroder's disco anthem, Love To Love You Baby.
Humour and celeb guests are also abundant, with Bernie Worrell adding some tasty organ and Toots Hibbert leading a full-scale dub freakout. Chuckles are found in the cheeky, sun-kissed Happiness Can't Buy Money and in Lesbians By The Lake, a corker built around drum loops and kora that is, ha ha, an instrumental. The only bummer is the time of arrival. This might have been the soundtrack to the summer of 2000.
