AllMusic Review by

No surprise, really, that the two most interesting songs on Spencer Kincy's (aka Gemini's) fourth studio album, "At That Café" and "Swimmin' Wit' Sharks," were originally released on the highly innovative Classic record label. But then again, Gemini has always been affiliated with creative labels, from his earliest days on Cajual until now. Of course, there's not really a bad track on here. There are a few that are perhaps too long (a common result of making music in terms of dancefloors), but "Raplh" does an outstanding job displaying Kincy's advanced musicality. Live and program drums weave together with some tasteful keyboard work. The metallic vocals and drums on "Kiva Song" do nothing to limit the soulfulness of the piece, while "Where U Belong" breaks it down to the bare minimum of sounds and structure. A quality slice of house music that sounds comfortingly familiar while keeping it fresh. Gemini is defiantly doing more than cookie-cutter tracks.
