Play.com Review

Following the critical success of his Mercury Prize-nominated 2007 debut 'Panic Prevention', South London singer/guitarist Jamie T (aka Jamie Treays) returns with Kings And Queens, another sublime collection of innovative songwriting that defies pigeonholing.

From the electro beats and clear hip-hop influences of opener '368' to the subtle, classic folk of 'The Man's Machine', in the space of four songs, the wide variation of themes and ideas on Kings And Queens is evident early on. A complex thought process gathered whilst sat on a train, 'Sticks 'n' Stones' is a glorious slice of social commentary, comfortably tackling the subject of mindless violence in Britain in a fearless narrative that would make Joe Strummer proud. Single 'Chaka Demus' and the laid back 'Emily's Heart' are further highlights, whilst the world music-tinged rant of 'Hocus Pocus' deals with issues on a more personal level. Fast becoming the spokesman for his generation, 'British Intelligence' is a subtle but infectious rhythmic track highlighting the country's paranoia about living in CCTV-infested Great Britain, and possibly Jamie T's finest moment to date. 'Jilly Armeen', a gloriously modest ballad concludes the album on a quieter note.

Offering a frantic mix of indie, hip-hop, ska and punk, there are few artists who have the ability to match the diversity of Jamie T. What's more, the second album from the Wimbledon-born songwriter offers great substance both lyrically and musically, making the regular genre dipping seamless. As a result, Kings And Queens is an effortlessly wonderful record, both enjoyable and intellectual in equal measures.

Kings And Queens is also available in a Special CD & DVD Deluxe Edition .

 Better than Panic Prevention!!!

What a superb album. You really can't praise this guy highly enough for what he's doing for British music. A genuine legend in the making if you ask me. Right from the off this record just has you hooked unlike Panic Prevention which I loved but it did have a couple of tracks that I couldn't fully appreciate. '368' opens with a massively upbeat, raucous tune with loads of Jackson style "WOOOOO's" thrown in for good measure! And it never lets up from then. Literally each song is just so catchy it really does play like a Jamie T greatest hits. Even when the little scamp turns his hand to ballads with Emily's Heart and Jilly Armeen rather than being an embarrasing attempt at musical diversity he's actually created two of the finest songs on the album.

I could rave on about each track but I won't spoil the surprise. Stand out tracks for me are British Intelligence, Spiders Web, 368, Emily's Heart and Sticks n Stones.

Already gagging for the third album! This guy knows how to write real music. Catchy and interesting and also having spoken to him briefly at Glastonbury a couple of years ago I can say he's one of the nicest guys you could meet.

Well done Mr Treays!

 The best thing to happen to music in 10 years!

After the 1st listen I didn't think this album was as good as Panic Prevention however having listened to it about 10 times now I can safely say it is. It's a more grown up sound with the addition of the pacemakers as backing and the lyrics are still genius. Look out for trackks like 368, Earth wind and Fire and Spidersweb (the new operation maybe?)
Do yourself a favour, buy it today!

 yes
