As the final album released on producer Hadley D. Murrell's HDM Records, Black Ice s I Judge The Funk is the perfect showpiece to the sound of an era. The follow-up to the group's 1977 self-titled debut album, I Judge The Funk finds Black Ice exploring a more expansive, orchestrated sound than before. Building on the disco format developed on 1977 s Black Ice, I Judge The Funk demonstrates growth in the group s commitment to making sonically satisfying records. Notable tracks include the percussion-happy "Play More Latin Music," while the group s softer dynamics are showcased on tracks such as "ostcard Love Affair" and "You're Always On My Mind." Filled with dance cuts and ballads alike, I Judge The Funk is an excellent listen for Black Ice fans and newcomers alike.
