X-Ecutioners and The Streets...
The Album cover is a clear homage to Public Enemys' "Yo! Bum Rush the Show", and has that albums' feel in terms of raw energy...
This is both a blessing and a curse. The down-side to this is that the album does feel a little dated in places.
..But it also has a sense of humor (the 'skit' tracks are reminiscent of De La Soul)..
If there is a Hip-Hop revival going on; then theses boys are gonna be at the front of it.
One for the Old Skool Hip-Hoppers out there.
...But expect bigger and better in the future..
It's too late..
Same old thing...
I reviewed the single Has It Come To This.. some time ago - loved it - and was egarly awaiting the album..
Underneath the london twang ("Raght mah saaaahn; dant mess... Nah git aaght before I 'ammer yer Nigaras!") there is actually a very fresh Garage album..
..but could someone explain what The Irony of it All is all about ?
Another day in the life of a geezer! Indeed.
