Any love / thoughts / DiS reviews for this bad boy?
He's playing glasgow soon, gonna get masel some tickets!
Got the ticket and the record for £11 which was pretty good value. I'm really enjoying the album from a couple of listens. Personal stand outs being Easy Easy, Neptune Estate and A Lizard State
could have been trimmed by a couple of tracks, but most of it is REALLY good IMO. really fresh, varied and interesting, lyrically and musically. neptune estate, easy easy, has this hit all 10/10s for me.
I thought popular music had reached its nadir. Seems I owe Ed an apology.
like obviously his whole shtick is really annoying, the whole Brit School kid from Forest Hill pretending to be some kind of working class oik thing, and releasing that one single on Rinse seemed like a bit of a plea for credibility
the music is really good, his voice is amazing if you ignore the lyrics, the whole thing flows really nicely, it's a great listen
but what I've heard of his work; yeah, it seems like there's that element of pseudo-authenticity (nowhere near as bad as, say, Ed Sheeran though) but with talent and actually decent music behind it (that could probably survive without some of that pretence).
he doesn't NEED to pretend to be some sort of hardcore chav, it's a really lame and fake aesthetic and he's talented enough to just be some slightly posh kid with a great voice and ideas.
Said villain is actually called King K. Rool.
Refuse to listen to his music for his mis-spelling of highly obscure video game characters.
should have fed your kid better and stopped him smoking twenty a day.
