  Great story!

The thing i love about this album isn't the top quality songs or lyrics, it's the fact that the whole album is one hour long story that is funny, exciting, and really makes you think.

Get this album, you will not be dissapointed!

i'm not a huge streets fan, but this album is brilliant. i love listening to it at work or at the gym. i don't relate to it, but i find Skinner's words powerful and meaningful. sounds brilliant in your ears. definitely worth the money :D

This by far is the best album I own!

The streets, with their hits and also new ones, great to sit and listen to in the background

This album tells a story and is so varied. He aint the greatest singer but he knows about just relationships and life in general. Alot of lyrics you can relate with and enjoy and he just tells it as it is. Hardly anyone does that and thats wot makes this ablum 5 out of 5

  A SOCIAL CONCEPT

| | See all XscubasteveX182's reviews (34)

By now you should be familiar be familiar with this man. while his first album never quite set the world alight here is his second album. unlike most musicians u really cant pigeonhole this bloke. some may say he's rap (he is'nt) some may say he's (urban he is'nt) and some may even say hes rock *based on that bassline in fit but you know it* (not quite).

I would say he's a healthy mix between the free his vocal style is not that of most other solo artists which sets him apart from the rest. now the concept.
the story starts right from the outset i wont give too much away as it would ruin it for you incase u was interested in purchasin this.
all of the songs are intwined so u must listen to the songs carefully to get parts of the story u may have missed out on first time around which makes for repeated listens.

There are no bad songs no filler like u get with most other albums from people you may feel inclined to compare him 2 if u r ill informed and think this is rap People like eminem d12 . mike skinner is hours away from these you may even call him the adult just jack with a pair of balls and a bit of edge (thats not a comparison it just makes it easier to explain his style) spoken word if u wanna name it.

anyways the story flows right thru the album warts and all leadin upto the big comedown and the realisation. you will never guess where that money is.
