Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

London Town finds East London MC/producer Kane Robinson stepping further outside the grime scene that spawned him. Kano’s greatest skill has always been the versatility of his flow, from unflappable ghetto gangster to silver-tongued Lothario in the flip of a beat--and here, he applies such lyrical flexibility to a broad range of styles, from swaggering chopped’n’screwed US hip-hop to candy-sweet R&B, playground sing-alongs to earnest raps atop acoustic guitar. Satisfyingly, he comes out swinging: London Town’s first four tracks set out to nip any chatter about selling out in the bud, brooding battle tracks characterised by belly-shaking beats, tinny snare, and Kane’s calmly assured delivery: "It sounds like grime, but a little slower/I’m a lot wiser, but a little older". Further in, though, we find our man experimenting with different styles and sounds, and inviting in a surprising line-up of guests. "Feel Free", featuring Damon Albarn, could almost be a Gorillaz track, skippy beats and chilly synthesiser and a children’s choir a la Pink Floyd’s "Another Brick in the Wall". Kate Nash supplies the chorus to "Me & My Mic", a gleaming back-in-the-day number that twinkles like a pop diamond. And Craig David shows up on "This Is the Girl", a new school R&B number with crossover stamped all over it. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Kano's NO one hit wonder 11 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
London Town is a brilliant follow up, with heavy hitting basslines and Kano's amazing flow this album is definitely one to get. You can hear the growth in Kano as an artist production is tighter and the album just seems more soild when compeared to 'Home Sweet Home'. I must admit when I first saw only 11 tracks I was dissapointed I thought I'ld be left wanting more. But as soon as I put the CD on it didn't matter I listened from start to finish and was left feelling satisfied there are NO 'fillers'. If you liked the first album you'll love this, add it to the basket now!

5.0 out of 5 stars great follow up to home sweet home 11 Sep 2007
By adriano
Format:Audio CD
after loving kanos first album home sweet home i decided to pre order london town also based on the strength of 'this is the girl'. i certainly was not dissapointed after listening the album through. the album boasts a wide range of different genre influenced tracks and thats what makes this album special. i am by no means a great fan of grime or garage but do keep an eye open for a good artist and kano is a great artist. each track is a good listen with highlights being 'this is the girl' 'sleep tight' 'london town' 'bad boy'. whilst listening to fighting the nation though it was one track where i just though what the hell is he doing? an accoustic attempt on a grime album? 1st listen i was not impressed but after a couple chances and listening more closely to lyrics i could understand the track and even began to love it. all in all there are no weak songs on this album and it is very close to rivaling home sweet home... i cant quite decide which is better yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars London Town 18 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
this is a brilliant second attempt by kano. when home sweet home ended up being so amazingly good , i doubted that he could match it a second time around. I was rite. because this isnt as good as HSH but theres still no doubting the quality of this album and it is much better than the "flop" some people are calling it. just dont compare it to HSH and youll love it. overall its a brilliant deep , much darker album , and lyrically superior to its brother. overall a very good album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kano -London Town Review (3.5 stars_ 5 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
London Town is the second album to be dropped by UK rapper, Kano. Kano has been busy since 2005's successful 100'000+ selling `Home Sweet Home' album which showcased the 20 year old's ability to appeal to a wide demographic. A mixtape released last year entitled `Beats and Bars' satisfied the man dem with its street orientated subject matter but suffered from the Achilles heel of most mixtapes, namely, under production and an excessive number of tracks. `London Town' out on 679 Recordings showcases a confident rapper who has learnt from experiences within the industry and has varied his lyrical content and musical style.

As one enters the album, they are greeted by a future street anthem, `Product'. A murky bubbling synth starts proceedings, and is then joined by short bursts of sharp snares. As Kano narrates slowly saying "one body, two body, three body, four, five more soliders dead on the floor", one can immediately tell this track is going to suck the listener in to the shadowy depths of Kano's cerebral. The track kicks off with a smatter of snares and is joined by an understated beat and Kano's rapid fire delivery. A simple, dark and heavily processed melody meanders through the track adding a sense of grandeur. In this track, Kano engages the listener with his most successful style, i.e. playing with the tempo of his lyrical delivery as the track progresses. This track is a brilliantly produced opener which stylistically echoes the `davinche' produced tracks from `Home Sweet Home'. Following that is the track most people have already heard, `London Town'. It is another well produced stormer which follows on perfectly from the opener. A simple kick-drum and snare exercise is joined by dark intermittent releases of bass drone whilst Kano raps competently in a steady fashion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing Second Album? 1 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
I brought this album purely on the strength of Kano's first album Home Sweet Home, which in short blew me away.

After hearing the Craig David collaberation This Is The Girl i thought it would easily keep to my high expectations, but on first listen i was hugely disapointed. No tracks really stood out to me, even the more main stream collaberations with Damien Albarn and Kate Nash. It wasn't until i accidently stumbled across it again on shuffle mode a few weeks later that i really started to enjoy the album.

Stand out tracks for me include, This Is The Girl, Me & My Microphone and Fightin' The Nation.

Overall i would only give this album 3-Stars because of its slow start. If you buy this album trust me, (eventually) you won't be disapointed! ;)
