Definitely one of the few redeeming qualities of NPS. lol

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Don't love it, but very underestimated.

A case of the parts being better than the sum.

It's fantastic, and I especially like the outro. Very unexpected, short, and sweet ending to an amazing track!

It's a great tune. No doubt. However, I still don't understand why he felt that it was necessary to say, "My balls are round and round."

Love it. Nps suffers from the same problem as "come". They both
have a weird, as in not so good, opener and close kinda muddy.

With a strong opener and closer, come would have been much more
focussed and i'm sure, much more loved. An album doesn't feel
as much like one without strong book ends.

Same goes for NPS. "new power soul" and "i like funky music",
although they both gave a few interesting elementd, are both
weak and dull tracks. "wasted kisses" should have been at the
end. But where it is placed now it comes in too late.

Aaaaaanyway, a big YAY for "when u love somebody"!
and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

The breakdown and jam at the end is fantastic, but what I really love about this track is the punchy sound production. It's a great song on a criminally underrated album.

could do without his balls going round and round, but other than that I like it. sounds like it originated as a remix to In This Bed I Scream.

NPS is one of my favourites from the 90s, Come On, Wasted Kisses, The One are among his best songs! When U Love somebody is also a nice tune.

I like it a lot, especially the chorus. I will listen to it before the day is over.

too plastic sounding for me ...nothing special about it...the only tracks that work on nps for me are ' the one ' .. ' come on ' and ' wasted kisses '....

Aren't these the 'usual three' for NPS? I think it has slightly more merit that than. At least add Mad Sex to the mix!

Back to the OP: I like this too, and Shoobeedoo even. smile - I agree with IstenSzek, this has an unsatisfactory beginning and end that skews the set.

One of the 4 good jams on it with Mad Sex, Wasted Kisses, The One and Come On. The song..I live for those damn horns.
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy
