Plant Life

Album Title: The Return of Jack Splash
Release Date: July 11, 2004
Genre: Funk
Attempting to resurrect the era of Sly and the Family Stone and War with the addition of a few modern beats, Los Angeles quartet Plant Life have a hit-and-miss with their debut longplayer The Return of Jack Splash. The record starts off great, grooving beats and solid bass lines with lead singer Jack Splash's vocals coming off like a bizarre funk falsetto. But by the time track 21 rolls around, bringing the running time up to a grand total of 61 minutes, Splash begins to sound like an even more annoying Remy Shand (didn't know that was possible). It also becomes burningly apparent that no matter how well produced, every single song on the album has the exact same phrasing. Cut The Return off at around the 14th track and it's all good. Going any further is not recommended.
