I have bought this album 5 times ... why ?? becuase everytime a friend hears it they just have to have it..... it is that good !!
Ive been waiting for a hip-hop / rap album to denounce the culture of bling and falsehood of council estate glamour for years and here it is. Skinnyman has delivered a true representation of what urban life is like and it aint MTV showered in Cristal. It is juggling to make ends meet, dodging violence and waking up everyday to face the limited horizon of job prospects the youth can aspire to. Me and my pals are admittedly old heds now 30+ but were bought up on the music of EPMD, Gang Star, Kool G Rock, London Posse, Demon Boyz etc .. they spoke about real life issues and not the sugar coated parody that represents Hip Hop now. We are qualified to comment on this and trust me this album has it all killer tunes with a message. I aint stopped playing it in 3 months, respect Skinnyman I hope you go far you deserve it.

I listened to this album for the first time today n it totally blew me away, i know its a cliche but it really is a great album, i'd never heard anything of Skinnyman before and i wouldn't describe myself as a huge hip hop/rap fan but if your into UK hip hop or just good music check this out. Dizzee Rascal fans will probably appreciate this but it works on a more accessible level than Dizzee's Boy in Da Corner, Skinnymans rap is incredible....seriously listen to this album.

This is just a great album. All the songs are proper songs - top quality, no glib filler bullshit riding on the back of samples. Skinnyman's norflandan rapping style and flow is distinctive and original and his lyrics are ingenious and witty - the guy's a star. Compare it with some of the so-called classics in this genre - Illmatic, Ready to Die, 36 Chambers, The Infamous, etc - and it doesn't come up short. Brilliant use of Tim Roth/Made in Britain to link the tracks as well. You've got to be bored with the tired old tropes (bling, hoes, gats, Oprah-esque African-American affirmation, plagiarised samples masking creativity deficits) of US rap. Skinny is 100% real. Every now and then you stumble across something special; this is the best rap album I've ever heard and one of the best recent albums in any genre.

This album.... Brilliant.... Must buy.... Need great tunes.... Need lyrical brilliance.... You get the point.

Don't let the Streets connection fool you. This is British HipHop, not PopHop.

This album will sit perfectly alongside Jehst, Braintax and many others. You can buy this with expectations, you won't be disappointed.

Lyrically he tackles subject matter that anyone living in the UK can understand but are afraid of, and people outside can certainly get a picture. With clips (maybe dare i say too many) from the excellent Made In Britain with Tim Roth, there is definately a strong message here. But, strip out the lyrical meaning, and this album still rocks. Truly.

Got Skinnyman's new album last week and what can I say, it blew me away! Every track is a winner, cannot recommend it highly enough!!!
If you are sick of BLING! Sick of New York Gangsta's, sick of rappers with nothing to say then this album is for you. Things have been a bit tired on the hip hop scene recently but Skinnyman's come up with something new and fresh and taken it back to the streets!!!
The lyrics arn't all about what car he's driving or how much platinum he's got round his neck, they're about real life and what's happening in his manor ... Finsbury Park. It's about life in the UK today in the council estates. But it's also about hope, it's also about uplifting beats and about slick production and tight lyrics!!
Skinnyman has brought it ... and he's brought it LARGE! Finally a UK rapper we can be TRULY proud of. He can hold his own among the best of them.
This album is outstanding and I hope it gets the recognition it deserves. It has been a long time coming but it's DEFINITELY worth the wait!
Stand out tracks for me are: "I'll be Surprised", "No Big Ting", "Put in the work", "That's what I'm Gonna Do", "Council Estate of Mind" ... Actually, what am I talking about every track is BANGING!!
This is music about REAL life for a majority of people in inner cities; telling about how it really is coming up in the streets and not dressing it up. BUY IT and appreciate true british talent.
Mecury Music award .... get Skinny's name down now!
BIG UP SKINNY!!! NUFF LOVE!

I bought this album when it was first released. I thought it good, and interesting. Seven years later I still regularly listen to it.
The rhymes are intelligent, witty and paint a clear picture of the MC's life. The beats are generally sombre, inventive and well produced.
The shining gem of this album is not so much any particular track, but that it is a collection of crafted songs, rather than a hastily thrown-together ensemble of raps.
That said, the title track is excellent.
A classic of UK Hip Hop, and a classic of London music.

Was introduced to this. Never heard of him. Absolutely love it. Not as heavy as many would have you believe so well worth a go for those who would like to hear some great beats with some rap actually relelvant to their lives. Still not sure of the film/tv sample running through the whole album but gels it all together to make it amazingly relevant to the title. Repeated listens and it just gets better. Will go down as a proper classic in years to come. You won't regret it.
