Additional notes

Album Notes The National Trust: Gabriel, Seba (vocals).
Chicago's National Trust performs an ironic but respectful version of early-1980s funk, complete with beatboxes, antique synthesizers, and falsetto vocals. Its second album is an attractive blend of vintage-sounding R&B dance tracks like "It's Just Cruel," breathy Prince-style vocalizing on "Show and Tell," and sexy after-hours jams like "Canday's Away." The duo have gone to much trouble in their quest for musical authenticity--their recreations of the classic sounds of the '80s are impeccable--and the result is an enjoyable, if slightly smirking romp through a variety of soul and dance idioms of yesteryear.
Album Reviews Uncut - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The high-register squelch of 'Elevators' could have been captured at Paisley Park, the synth-bass on 'It's Just Cruel' sounds authentically expensive, and on the succinct, succulent 'Secrets', Rosario is entirely credible."
Time Out - "Painstakingly crafted, honey coated grooves."
