Product Description

Product Description

2009 album from the Ghanaian born and East London based Grime/Hip Hop star. Catch 22 is a milestone in Tinchy Stryders ascending career. A move on from the sound of 2007s Star In The Hood, Catch 22 sees Tinchy working with a diverse range of producers (from. Fraser T Smith to Frank Musik) and guest vocalists (from Taio Cruz to Amelle) to create a signature sound that is not only fresh and current, but is also uniquely his. Lyrically the album focuses on Tinchys day-to-day tales from his hood in bow, and his ever changing life as a rising star in the music industry. Spanning the shiny and radio friendly `Number 1 and `Never Leave Me through to the gritty and bassline heavy, `Stryderman and `Spotlight, Catch 22 seamlessly balances universal appeal with street credibility. Island.

Amazon.co.uk

Though touted as his first album, Catch 22 is in fact 22-year-old Tinchy Stryder’s sophomore effort. He released his debut Star In The Hood back in 2007, though he’d probably be the first to admit that he was a different person then. In the last two years he’s shifted from underground sensation to chart-bothering pop star, bombarding the radio on a regular basis with pop-savvy grime tunes. While The Streets and Dizzee Rascal may have made grime a mainstream concern ages ago, Tinchy offers an unashamedly commercial take on the genre that even these well known stars lack. Hits like "Number 1" (with N-Dubz), "Take Me Back" and "Never Leave You" sit next to equally infectious tracks like "You’re Not Alone" (which borrows from Olive’s 1996 hit of the same name), "Spotlight"(which borrows the swirling riffs from Timo Maas’ remix of Azzido Da Bass's "Doom's Night")--even a Chase and Status produced version of NWA’s "Express Yourself". Its 18 cuts definitely make it a bit long, and Stryder’s consistent insouciance ultimately creates an aura of superficiality; but all in all Catch 22 is the confident, upbeat sound of another bonafide pop star breaking outta London’s streets. --Danny McKenna

I'm not usually into this kind of music, but ever since I won the album and listened to it, I've started getting into it. One of my favourite songs on this album is 'Stryderman' and 'Express Yourself' I think these two are best performed live too, as I won tickets to see him in concert, and it's really changed my opinion of this type of music. His music is awesome and how he gets the crowd going is awesome too. This album has gained himself a new fan! I'd definitely recommend this album to anyone that is looking for something new to listen to and get into it. I'm sure anyone would like it!

I expected hit after hit on this album with his first few realeases being really good! But the songs released are by far the best on the album, so don't be expecting any more chart toppers from Catch 22. Still a good buy though, with Never Leave and No.1 being fantastic songs.

For hardcore fans they will find he has moved away from his 'roots' and become more poppy. True, but still very effective and has gained alot of new fans. For me though, the more mainstream, poppy stuff is what it's all about.

Looking forward to some new stuff for the Stryder man, none the less a good second album.

One of the best albums of 2009. Every song has amazing lyrics which shows his talent for song writing. In all the songs he is talking about the road to success and trying to reach your goals in life which a lot of people can relate to. What i love about Tinchy is that he talks about things that are real life in a way people can relate to and delivers some killer lines that are almost like quotes. In my opinion Tinchy has climbed to the top of british urban music and has a lot more talent to show. The only thing that would of made this album better is if he had a song about love/relationships as every song seems to be about the same thing. Overall i would give this album 9/10 and definitely think this album is worth buying.

This album is by far the best grime album ever released and builds on the quality of Tinchy's previous albums, although they werent as big of a success commericially. this album contains two number one singles ( number 1 , never leave you ) and many top 10 hits which has bought the uk grime scene out of the shadows and firmly into the limelight. if your new to this type of music then theres no better starting point than here. Evry Grime/Urban Fan must hav this in their collection!! jack q

I bought this album after hearing Tinhcy on Taio's track Take Me Back. I loved that song soooo much, then after buying this album I fell in love with a couple of other songs too. Never Leave You ft. Amelle is one of my favourite songs of this year by far. There are also some classic songs on the album that will make you want to dance such as Stryderman and I'm Landing - Two stand out tracks from the album. If you like Tinchy, N Dubz, Taio, Chipmunk.... YOU WILL LOVE THIS!

Bought this as a gamble , has to be the worked cd I've listened to in my life ! And I've heard Cheryl Cole live. I would rather play a fork scrapping a plate constantly , for the whole time I drive than ever listen to this.

For someone who definetly isn't a fan of Brit Rap or Hip/Hop this is different. The album is mainstream enough to appeal to people like me (pop fans) and has enough orginality to maintain his core base. Hit after Hit in an album that is beyond brilliant. From the excellent to the sublime this album has it and more in spades. Buy it, love it because stryder is a genius and a star who will be around for years to come if he can maintain this level of quality on all albums
