5.0 out of 5 stars A Genius? 20 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
Well I am a huge fan of the 2 albums by Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip, Angles and Logic... Anyone who has heard them knows Pip is not just a rapper, but an incredible poet. The music is much more varied than the Sac Vs Pip, with guitars creating a bit more rock and also some more mellow (borderline ballad) moments. I use the word ballad lightly (the words of Pip are more insightful and darker than any ballad that gets daytime radio airplay.
So with 9 songs it is a bit short, but 9 incredible songs that get you moving, singing along and almost to tears in the words of Broken Promise how could anyone complain. With so many albums being hit and miss and increasingly more filler, it is a rare thing to play an album from start to finish without dismissing any of it. This is how rap should be. None of this rubbish about drugs, girls and fighting in almost a teenage mentality, but true, heartfelt and intelligent words that really do make the song become so much more than music ever could on it's own!
I highly recommend this album and Pip's other work. Also hopefully this will open people to check out other poets and discover how powerful and emotional people like Pip can make the written word sound. Incredible!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Album 20 Oct 2011

Another great album by Scroobius Pip. Would recommend to any music fans. More rocky than the previous albums with Dan Le Sac but with the same lyrical brilliance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scroobius Unleashed! 10 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Proper passion, emotion, and lyricism that will lurk in your head forever...

Previous albums have done sadness and solitude, but here, Scroobius adds anger, frustration, and madness to the mix. Best song for me right now is "Let 'Em Come", where there's a dark optimism to the pending meltdown, but "Death of The Journalist" is a close second.

There always seems to be one song on his albums I can't get on with - last time it was "Cauliflower", this time it's "Soldier Boy". Like the punk riffage, just a bit 1-dimensional compared to the rest, and 30 years too late? But, if I loved it all, it wouldn't be on the edge, would it?

The collaborations with the other writers/vocals change the pace and style, but it still feels so well crafted and precision tuned.

Click "Add To Basket". Your brain will thank you for it.
