The Goldie Lookin Chain album is finally here for your listening pleasure - and every track will have you cracking up as they go through lyrics such as 'your mothers got a short dress on that sometimes exposes the tip of her dong.' GLC have been causing a bit of a stir on the underground scene for quitew a while now, playing shows in smaller venues but they are now gracing the mainstream and what better way could have done it than with the instantly catchy tune of 'Guns dont kill people, rappers do.' GLC truly are a class act and this 'Greatest Hits' album will no doubt be one of the albums of the year. Some people are calling them the new Darkness, otheres a Welsh Wu Tang - whatever you wish to call them they will sure put a smile on your face and this CD will be in your player for months to come.

Having grown up on a Newport council estate ( and thankfully escaped ) I can fully appreciate the humour in this album. When I first heard it I didn't realise it would have nationwide appeal as there seem to be a lot of 'in-jokes' but obviously I was wrong! The highlights of the album for me are 'Soapbar' and 'You know I loves you' which bring back happy memories of my teenage years ( in those days if someone bought you a bag of chips and an item of 'jewellery' from Elizabeth Duke you'd be well chuffed ). If you want hip-hop forget it. If you want a laugh then buy it, buy it, buy it!

Once in a blue moon a record like this one comes along and absolutely redefines and resurges popular music as we know it. The last one was Dire Straits' "rothers In Arms" back in the mid Eighties so this slab of beauty has been a long time coming. From beginning to end listening to this record is the aural equivalent of swimming through blue quicksilver clouds at the speed of an amphetamine sulphate fuelled Superman. The lyrics are pure poetry with the rhyming skills of Shelley spiked with the sharpest wit of an ultramodern Oscar Wilde. GLC's street articulacy is as relevant today as NWA's cussing and expletive shoutings back in the early Nineties and as potent as Public Enemy's Nation of Millions. As well as its modern relevance its art is also to be seriously considered. Its innovation and sheer avant garde echoes the Velvet Underground circa Sister Ray (no coincidence that there's a Welsh influence on both). This is bona fide classic. And it's funny too.

If you've heard it, you knows it! The best thing to come out of Newport this year, the draw-lovin' b-boys from beyond the Bristol Channel are finally releasing an album, brilliantly titled Greatest Hits. They are literally dripping in council estate chic, with more Argos gold and attitude than Vicky Pollard. The beats and rhymes are witty and Welsh, and what I've heard has made me laugh more than a half of high grade green (which seems to be largely the source of their inspiration anyway). If this album is anything less than safe as f*ck I will damage myself. Remember kids, guns don't kill people, rappers do!

Welsh rap with class, style and panache! Total comedy, this will make you laugh sooo hard. They take the mick out of all that is rap. Check out 'self-suicide', it is a hilarious track.
The Newport boys are quality, here are a few top quotes from some of their tracks;
"...I smokes more draw than your average rasta, I'm now Newport's first draw ambassador..."
"Back in the 'port stacking up your bong, having a fxcking laugh and still signing on, I went to pick up a curry and they saw my Capri, I paid them in draw and the keema now was free..."
If you only listen to one CD this year, make it this one. You won't regret it..... You knows it!

Although GLC's talent is actually questionable, what is unquestionable, is that they can produce one hell of a funny album. I have never truely laughed out loud to an album before. Until I heard this. It was quite embarrasing, I was sitting in the car with my mum and sis with my headphones on and I suddenly burst out laughing. It really is funnier than some movies. There is no point sayin much more. Get it!

I know people mostly talk about the comedy in the glc's music but I have to say there are some pretty solid raps on here. It's so British (or more accurately, Welsh!) that you can't help but love it, as most British hip-hop or rap is just trying to be American.
Even though the lyrics are funny, they do simply relate to normal life rather than 'gangsta' culture or pimp-rides which is the usual. The singles 'Guns Don't Kill People...', 'Roller Disco' (brilliant), 'You Knows I Loves You' and -ahem- 'Your Mother's Got A P***s' (what did I say about relating to normal life!) fairly represent the album but there's a whole lot more on offer, the sensational 'Soap Bar' probably being the highlight. Sadly it's lyrical content makes it unreleaseable as a single...
You knows you wants a copy of this! So get down to your local Aaargos, Elizabeth Duke, get blinged up with your own gold chain and get down with the glc, clart! Safe as f**k!
