Sean Innit (Midnight Riot) "Every track a winner - this gets all the stars"

The range of sounds to be heard on ‘Take A Shot’ is ambitious, but feels effortless. From the spacey jazz-fusion of ‘Oblique’ and ‘Better Than Dead’, ‘Hey Misters’’s intense Hammond driven, risque? sister-funk, ‘Pyramid’’s touching & serene modal jazz-dance that was playlisted by Jazz FM, ‘Say You Will’ with its shimmering, sweet & summery soul-pop, the Betty Davis- esque ‘Can’t Decide’ which is a straight up funk-rock monster, the deceptively slinky West Coast smooth ‘Mind Time’ that takes a sharp left when you least expect it, the woozy and tripped out ‘St Tropez Blue’ – and of course the album’s title track ‘Take A Shot’ – not only display the ensemble’s collective and solo abilities, but also frame Sulene’s powerful and versatile voice in a wonderfully wide election of musical settings.
