The Album was well received by critics and the public alike. It was followed by Nocturnal in 2001, and Round 3 in 2002. Their fourth album, En Route was released in 2007. Their fifth CD, Roll On, was released in 2009. Although Four80East began as a studio concept, they have evolved into a live act. Four80East's music is characterized by a distinctive melodic atmosphere; underpinned by a strong bass groove.
