What is it with people writing this and all articles associated with Jamiroquai. Aren't you familiar with what an encyclopedia is meant to be? Whether or not this album is a classic is an opinion, not a fact, and so has no place in an encyclopedia. pomegranate 13:19, July 14, 2005 (UTC)

Track List[edit]

This is not the tracklist which appears on my version of the same album. I have checked this with the Gracenote CDDB twice now, and the official album case agrees that the order should be as follows:

  1. Just Another Story
  2. Stillness In Time
  3. Half The Man
  4. Light Years
  5. Manifest Destiny
  6. The Kids
  7. Mr. Moon
  8. Scam
  9. Journey To Arnheimland
  10. Morning Glory
  11. Space Cowboy

Maybe I have the UK version, or can anyone offer a better explanation?

I think it probably is the UK version, if you check's page, the tracklisting appears as in the article, and again at allmusic's page Mallocks 09:49, 27 July 2005 (UTC)
Or perhaps the tracklis has copied wrongly from amazon to allmusic and Wikipedia? Does anyone HAVE the album with that tracklist where Space Cowboy is number one?--Deadworm222 21:17, August 5, 2005 (UTC)
Oh, wait. There's an extra track there, too... So apparently it is the correct non-UK tracklist. Is this worth mentioning in the article itself?--Deadworm222 21:19, August 5, 2005 (UTC)
I'll leave that one up to you, it seems quite common to add notes to the end of the tracklisting, as long as it's neat I for one have no problem with it. Mallocks 21:30, 5 August 2005 (UTC)
Well, seeing as the UK release is the first and actual release, I think it might be better to put the actual version and note the U.S. differences. But change it back if you like. Danny Lilithborne 06:24, 29 August 2005 (UTC)

Added cleanup tag[edit]

There is some poor phrasing in this article:

  • 'This album has become somewhat uncommon in the United States'
  • 'There's only one known recording of the song, and it's on an early silver bootleg called "Songs for Manitu"'
  • 'This live song had several different versions of it.'

Also there are weasel words:

  • 'Many consider it to be the best and most refined example of the unique Jamiroquai sound.'

Some NPOV:

  • 'This album... remains a classic in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.'

2Pac sampling "Manifest Destiny"[edit]

  • I'm not 100% sure if it was 2Pac, but I heard that he sampled "Manifest Destiny" for a song. Anyone know anything about that? JuJube 05:49, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
