Rob I thought the exact same thing about the lyrics to the New York song. I like the groove too but it's one of the lesser tracks IMHO. In fact I could arguably take back the "near-genius" label ... upon closer inspection, much of the lyrics are not so great. But then great dance music is supposed to speak to your body, not your mind, right? Unless of course it's Billy Ray Martin.
My faves are "Jump" and "Can We Get Together". The best thing about the whole record is that you really do feel like you're back in some giant NYC club of bygone days tripping on E and feeling up some nameless hottie. The high without the high.
