Biography

There are those that rap, and those that rap well; then there are those that transcend the confines of hip hop culture to become credible, commercial, mainstream pop acts – Kanye, Jay-Z, Eminem, for instance. But it’s unfair to compare Professor Green to any of the aforementioned; utterly British, uniquely inimitable, if anything; his closest equivalent is Lily ...

Liked all of his singles so far so decided to buy the album and there is not a song I don't like. It is honestly the best album I've ever bought! I can't stop listening to it! The songs are all so varied and not samey at all. The lyrics are really well thought out and are obviously from the heart and make you think as well as make you laugh. Pro green has got some serious talent; having watched him doing rap battles for jump off TV on youtube in his early days (i advise you to watch them!), I think he'll be around for a good while. Can't wait for his second album "The Myth" to be released later this year if the first one is anything to go by! Strongly recommend you buy this!

While you wonder whether Professor Green (Hackney white rapper Stephen Manderson) got his names mixed up from the Cluedo characters its another form of mixing that dominates this very assured grime music album. Green's use of pop songs like INXS "Need you tonight" or even more commercially "Just be good to green" mixing and merging the S.O.S. Band's "Just Be Good to Me", with Beats International's response "Dub Be Good to Me" is clearly a sign that like Plan B the confines of a club will not satisfy this young rapper. Adding Lily Allen into the mix suggests that total chart domination is his target. And yes at this point it is almost compulsory for the Eminem comparison to come up since there is something about the swagger and self belief on this album that does remind you of Detroit's finest.

If you don't like the pop orientated stuff that shouldn't detract potential buyers of "Alive Till I'm Dead" since this remains a very strong grime album with tracks like the stellar "Jungle" (Feat Maverick Sabre) bringing together a dubstep swampy feel combined with huge blocks of synths that gives it a nice sinister edge. Its by far the best and hardest song on the album in an urban ode to the streets of Hackney. In a similar vein are the brilliant "City of Gold" from which Dizzie Rascal could learn a thing or two and the deep dub heavy "Closing the door" feat Fink of which veterans Sly and Robbie would be proud (plus anyone who can nick a line from Dire Straits and make it work in a dub song must have something going for them). "Oh my god" almost sounds like a heavy metal and sees Green claiming to be "rap's George Best" and sets out his ambition to do rather naughty things to Ms Pixie Lott. A correspondence course in "confidence building" would be sadly wasted on the good Professor!

When I heard the Singles Just Be Good To Green and I Need You Tonight, I had high hopes for this album. When I recieved the CD I instantly liked all of the songs on the album. Each song is brilliant in it's own way. City of Gold, Monster and Jungle are three of my favourite tracks on the album.
A deffinite ten out of ten for Professor Green.

Not technically a start of course as 'Lecture Number 1' was released through the now sadly, defunt The Beats label...but a first album release on a major label. The album really does get off to a flyer, 'Kids that love to dance' is ace and is followed by 'Just be good to green' and 'I need you tonight' which pretty much ensures you will carry on listening if you like PG's style (and face it, a LOT of people will have got this album on the strength of the 2 singles). PG has a really good flow, but for me it seems to get lost sometimes behind the music, which is well produced throughout. As another reviewer stated previously 'Monster' is almost certainly a single, although I think it sounds more like an Example song than a PG song, which almost certainly won't do it any harm to be fair. There are a couple of songs at the end of the album where it slows down a bit('Where do we go' and 'Goodnight') which, whilst accomplished musically, don't hold my attention as much as the rest of the album (saying that, it could be an issue with me as my interest also tailed off at the end of Example's 'Won't go quietly'). My personal favourite track on the album is 'Falling down' which has a theme we can probably all relate to where as soon as things are looking up the rug is pulled from under your feet and you end up on your behind. The lyrics are strong throughout, but I feel they are a highlight on this track as PG narrates his rise from the street (dealing) to The Streets (well, The Beats at least!) and down again following The Beats collapse, then up again (eventually) with Virgin...although it is a cautionary tale and left open ended as he admits he has no idea whether it is all going to work out.

I am really enjoying this album, just waiting for it to really grab me and demand to be unforgettable yet though.

I got his cd late, but it was fine, i just love it. The only problem that could occur is the cd case may be cracked, mine was, but its the contents that matters :D
