Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

Femi Kuti – Day By Day [2008] – carrying Afrobeat’s torch


Popmatters says:

Seven years was certainly worth the wait for Day by Day, one of the 2008’s best releases. The album features all the hallmarks of a pop sensation—tight arrangements with intoxicating hooks, rousing choruses, and sing-along vocals.


AllMusic mentions:

He no longer feels the need to either enshrine his father’s music in nostalgic reconstructions of it, nor does he need to indulge American hip-hop and funk or European electronica the way he once did. That said, Kuti still plays Afro-beat, but he puts his unique stamp on the music of his father. Here, slower burning funk sits side by side with African polyrhythmic folk forms; dubby reggae sidles up to African soul and Afro-beat.

I say…. damn this is hot. Demo Crazy is so infectious!
