The All Music Guide review says it all

Caustic712

This is the soundtrack to a perfect, non-existent film. Please, someone make a film so they can start doing sequels. I'm thinking franchise.

Driving music

fleischman

Put this album on while on a drive and you won't regret it. At times it just makes you want to move.

Retro Style Grooves

NiteOwl

This album combines many styles to create a music lovers bonanza of aural delights. Blaxplotation funk, lounge, downtempo, chill-out, hipster vibe. Everything but the kitchen sink!

Great Music

LuckyMarty

Love this album. The Track "Heart Of The Hustler" is one bad ass pimping tune and the rest of the album is like one good trick after another. Don't hate the player, hate the game...

This album is always on my iPod. Stereo tonic says it all.

Smooth, yet engaging

These guys are one of my favorite finds at eMusic, and their music keeps growing on me. I find the rhythms interesting and the melodies captivating, though somewhat repetitive. I can enjoy this music in the foreground or background.

They Say All Music Guide

One can only guess which Hollywood director will be the first to enlist Thunderball masterminds Sid Barcelona and Steve Raskin to compose the score for his or her next movie, but rest assured it will be worth dropping a hard-earned eight bucks for admission. On the heels of their critically acclaimed (and very appropriately titled) debut, Ambassadors of Style, Scorpio Rising is an even more seamless imaginary soundtrack. In Thunderball’s world, blaxploitation funk, cinematic soul, bossa nova lounge, downtempo dub, and downtown drum’n'bass all come together to create a hipster vibe few other groups could even aspire to, let alone create. From the Curtis Mayfield tribute of the opening “Heart of the Hustler” and the airy jungle jazz of “Vai Vai” to the ambient, Indian-influenced hip-hop of “Stereo Tonic,” these guys blend styles like Esquivel mixes drinks, making this the coolest album you’ll hear since United Future Organization disappeared. Could someone please give Guy Ritchie Thunderball’s number? – Bret Love
