Product Description

CD Description

Ugly Duckling is back with their fifth full length album MOVING AT BREAKNECK SPEED. After more than a decade in the music business, Young Einstein, Andy Cooper and Dizzy Dustin are well accustomed to the recording process and for their latest LP the boys dug deep into their bag of tricks to create what they feel is their most dynamic and complete release to date. MOVING AT BREAKNECK SPEED is an exciting and musically exotic, adventure story that has our desperate heroes circling the globe to outrun an evil gang of super criminals determined to put an end to UD once and for all. The record is made up of 14 power packed tracks that showcase Ugly Duckling s classic production sound and the flavorful, humorously soulful vocal styles of Dizzy and Andy. By the time you work on your fifth record, you ought to know how to do it, right? asks Andy. I think we put all of the pieces together to make a really, really good album . Inspired by the extensive touring and constant performing that have taken Ugly Duckling around the world many times over, MOVING AT BREAKNECK SPEED captures the troubadour spirit of a traveling hip hop band. We ve always wanted to make an album like this but we needed to do a decade of research first, jokes Dizzy. Now that we ve worn out a couple passports, we can speak about globetrotting. Einstein chimes in, When you re touring for a living it feels like it s you against the world, and that s a big part of the new album. In terms of production, Ugly Duckling is as solid as ever. Einstein and Andy dug deep into the crates to develop a sound that was both banging and in line with the international themes of MOVING AT BREAKNECK SPEED. It s kind of like the soundtrack to an adventure movie but funkier, says Einstein. Fans of the Ugly Duckling production style will not be disappointed by the new music. All of the tracks are filled with crispy drum loops that support a wide array of boldly melodic and constantly changing arrangements. We love the power of a good chord progression and we re always looking for something magical, beams Andy. When we come up with a part that sparks our collective imagination, the songs sometimes write themselves . Ugly Duckling makes music that can lift the listener to another place and with this new LP, the band did everything but buy their plane tickets.

5.0 out of 5 stars UD are back 16 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A welcome return for Andy, Dizzy and Einstein. This is their sixth album and still as good as they've ever been. If you're already a fan then you know what to expect, and if you're not you'll get brilliantly funny lyrics expertly fused with wicked samples and beats. This is absolutely miles better than anything in the uk rap charts at the moment (or ever actually). Coming from an Englishman as well. Totally original, these guys have set the bar very high indeed. Top drawer fellas. Best album of the year of any genre hands down.

5.0 out of 5 stars UD's back with another classic 29 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Yet another classic set from the UD's. Fun and funky, Andy and Dizzy's rapping on this album is amazing, and Einstein even gets a verse (which is probably one of favourite moments). There really isn't a bad tune on this album. Can't recommend it highly enough, and if you like it, check out their back catalogue as well (particularly 'Taste The Secret'). Oh, and go and see them live if you get the chance - best hip-hop act I've ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever! 30 Oct 2011
By Charlie
Format:Audio CD
Ugly Duckling are one of those classic, timeless groups who's music never seems to age. As the guys in the band would say they're FRESH! The new album more than lives up the this brilliant band's back catalogue of excellence. Funky, jazzy hip-hop with smooth flowing lyrics both witty and profound.

Buy it and everything else they've ever done NOW!
