Product Description

CD Description

This CD package of Wiley's career-best album, 100% Publishing, is really a thing of value. Not only does it include an exclusive bonus track (which features a very special guest,) but the disc is enhanced to include all the acappellas and instrumentals as 320kbps MP3s. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

BBC Review

The best thing about grime is its open-mindedness: there's nothing it won't absorb or recycle in order to achieve its ends, and as a result keeps moving on. This is why it's lasted for as long as it has.

Wiley, one of the originals who evolved the style out of UK garage and jungle, has been around longer than most. Now, some 15 years in to his career, he is grime's elder statesman - even if his public profile doesn't reflect such status.

Appropriately, though, 100% Publishing epitomises all of the music's qualities. Take the fourth track, Boom Boom da Na. It's constructed on that classic circus refrain - "boom boom da na na na, boom boom" - with Wiley scatting the melody over a computerised calliope; then a lurching, grumbling bassline reminds everyone not to get too chirpy, topped by his seemingly stream-of-consciousness lyrics about, essentially, himself, his craft, his crowd and his career. It's pure underground grime: unsettling music and Tweet-mentality vocals that perpetually celebrate both the genre and the mundane nature of everyday life.

100% Publishing is a vivid example of the sheer depth and inventiveness that sets Wiley apart, and has kept him in demand as the genre's most sought-after producer. The album is always grime and, as the above example shows, he's not afraid of using any sounds available; but he uses them to create tunes rather than just stacking noises on top of each other.

And quite often he manages this with deceptive subtly - Your Intuition has an almost subliminal melody noodling away just under the beat, and Wise Man and His Words has a weirdly disconnected piano riff. Then Talk About Life and Up There are nearly RnB, but RnB with a distinctly jagged edge; while Pink Lady and One Hit Wonder seem to be constructed entirely out of bleeps and squelches, but turned into music instead of video game audio.

Of course, all of this is stitched together with Wiley's machine gun lyrics. They tackle such introverted subject matter that it appears the grime scene and the life that goes with it is pretty much all there is, which is exactly what the music's hardcore fanbase wants to hear.

100% Publishing is a clever balancing act that allows the casual listeners in and retains them with riffs and tunes you can't ignore, but makes sure it's insubordinate enough to keep the regulars happy. Most importantly, though, once again he's kept grime moving forwards with some truly audacious sounds.

Format: Audio CD
This self-styled-written-produced little wonder is a gift.
Wiley (Richard Cowie) keeps his hands firmly on the wheel
and delivers one of the finest rap/grime(ish)/uplifting
albums of the year so-far. It's not just the beats (which
are wildly inventive) or the sharp, staccato rhyming (and
this guy can certainly pack the words in tight); it's more
to do with the lightness of touch with which he pulls it off.

Mr Cowie has an innate musicality which permeates every one
of the thirteen songs in this collection; none moreso than the
marvellous 'Wise Man and His Words', a curious amalgam of English
classical romanticism in the limpid piano lines; whopping great
beats which rattle your knees and a shrewdly poetic vocal line
which dances wildly on top like heavy rain on a tin roof.

'Up There', too, is suffused with dreamy synth chords which soften
the edges and contradict the flow of an otherwise hard-edged song.

Title track '100% Publishing' is a sweeping, swooping, noisy tour de
force! 'One Hit Wonder' is virtually impossible to keep still to as
well as being very funny and final track 'To Be Continued' leaves us
in little doubt that Mr Cowie is it it for the long haul.

For my money, however, 'Boom Boom Da Na' is the irrsistible fast
beating heart of the album. A track so infectious it's dangerous!

On this showing Wiley may well endear himself to a wider audience.
That he has done so without compromising his vision is commendable.

Highly Recommended.

Great piece of work, 100% Wiley on this CD, from the production to the verses & catchy choruses. Wiley is one of Englands super talents he has his own Genre of music (Grime) & this disc Shows exactly why he is head & shoulders above & still as relevant as all the other big name Grime Artists that are around today. Props to the Godfather

Wiley has done the best with this album. The guy that put one star clearly doesn't understand the difference between Grime and Rap. So obviously if he hasn't listened to Grime he doesnt know what he's talking about. Wiley is one of the best grime artists and this CD is awesome!

If you enjoy lazy lyrics and catchy hooks, buy this album.
However, if you (like me) enjoy real rap where its about real things and complicated lyrics then do not buy.
If I were you, I would check out PREF1X (on facebook or youtube)... you can download his 21 track mixtape for FREE and it is so much better than this!

Save some money, and some time.
