For considerable time now, The Juggaknots have held a solid underground reputation. Breezly Brewin’ was featured as the main character within Prince Paul’s “Hip-Hopera” – “A Prince Among Thieves,” and with the re-release of “Clear Blue Skies” last year, the group’s buzz was re-established.

As part of the ever flourishing mixtape scene, The Juggaknots have created “The Love Movement Deluxe” – the cover being a take off of ATCQ’s “The Love Movement,” but the content being more so based on sex/women.

From “She Loves Me Not” about being rejected (with an amusing helpline intro) we’re lead to believe the EP will revolve around break-ups. However, immediately following, we’re brought into what appears to be a stab at Justin Timberlake. His beat-boxing and a few ad-libs are used in an odd assault.

“Vibrant Thing” is a kinky remake of “Vivrant Thing,” all about vibrators. Heroine fails to impress though. Her voice doesn’t suit the beat and the lyrics aren't particularly creative. “Dreams 2002” is a Breez freestyle - a modern version of Biggie’s “Dreams” about lust for R&B singers. The track is okay, but nothing exceptional. There’s even a Breez remake of “Lose Yourself,” which unfortunately also isn’t up to set standards.

“Settle Down” and “The Formula Song” are the most effective tracks here. The Juggaknots suit the provided beats more than they do the others selected.

All in all, the EP serves as a pretty average release.
