Best known for the 1997 hit “Luchini (AKA This Is It)” from their classic debut Uptown Saturday Night, Bronx duo Camp Lo returns with their new album, Ragtime Hightimes.

This being their seventh studio LP, Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede have consistently released quality music over 20 years by staying in their lane of hip hop-meets-soul, but missteps can and do happen. My favorite tracks include the connected smoothness of “Sunglasses,” “Gypsy Notes,” ”Award Winning,” “Life I Love,” and the official single, “Bright Lights.” Least favorites include “Power Man” and “Sunshine,” which, by the way, are the shortest tracks on the album at 1:51 and 2:57, respectively. They could have easily been thrown into a vault, as both seem out of place in an experimental way. Overall, hip-hop fans may be forgiving, as Ragtime Hightimes (and its running time of 37 minutes) is a solid collection to enjoy.
