Disco 9000's ten tracks mark the sharp transition in Taylor's amazing career, from being a straight soul singer to being a soul-disco singer. While the keyboards and electronic drums are everywhere present and the beats are geared to the dancefloor, there is nothing here that is really inconsistent with Taylor's trademark soul delivery. For example, check the in-the-pocket groove of "Play Something Pretty" or the R&B-reggae fusion in "I Got This Thing for Your Love." Certainly the hard funk on "Your Love Is Rated X" and the title track (written by Taylor) might seem at odds with the smooth soul crooner's ideal, but it's still there, and it rises above the arrangements into the heights of R&B heaven.

Here is a great soulful funky album with Roy Ayers from the mid 90's, and he have a special guest invited to these sessions too, I'm talking of the fantastic James Moody that play some soprano sax, even if Harold Paris Robinson is the mayor sax player on the album, yeah everyone that like soul gonna enjoy this album too a lot, and it is fantastic to hear that Roy Ayers really could make some great music in the 90's too when a lot of 60's and 70's musicians really trap themself in the 90's machinery, yeah listen to this album and you'll understand what I mean with great soul of the 90's. The nasté ending on No More Trouble should be that way so it ain't nothing wrong with the file at all.
