Admittedly, there is some filler here: "R&B" takes a pot-shot at the genres lyrical triteness and more absurd vocal histrionics by, er, copying them in silly voices; "Shit Song", meanwhile, takes a rather limp stab at inspiration-free chart music, and in doing so, rather lives up to its title. Luckily, elsewhere the jokes come thick and fast, and theres no little ingenuity to GLCs profanity, as the closing "Sister"--a sort of 'Dear Jane', all about dumping your significant other and hooking up with her sibling--entertainingly confirms.--Louis Pattison
This album changes all that.
It almost seems like these clarts decided to stop monkeying around and get more serious at least from the production side. Lyrics are still classic GLC, plenty of stuff to remember and laugh about. The rapping is on time and so clean now, it's almost like a different, turbocharged, racing-striped GLC.
Most people outside of the UK may not know the GLC and they're really missing out. I'm in the US and will continue to love the GLC and the draw until one of them ends.
More refined than their first commercial release 'Greatest Hits', 'Safe as F***' is a perfect blend of interesting production, street lyricism (and cynicism) and straight up p***-taking. Whilst it's safe to say that you have to be of a certain frame of mind to enjoy most of the humour, there is still something here to make pretty much anyone smile.
As a parody of the current dastardly Chav movement, the GLCs choice of subject matter to stretch over the 12 songs is inspired; whether discussing dodgy girlfriends, the compensation culture or the dangers of certain GM 'crops', each member has something interesting and downright hilarious to say. Favourite tracks on the album include 'Bad Boy Limp', 'HRT', 'Hit Song' and 'Short Term' and whilst I don't quite feel the same about 'Maggot at Midnight' or 'Monkey Love', I don't think there is anything that could be labelled a 'bad track' on the album - which is a feat in itself.
Out of all of the members, I think Adam Hussein shines the most on this CD, as although he isn't the best emcee, his combination of puerile anecdotes and hilarious punchlines had me laughing out loud on several occasions.Read more ›
Once again, the Maggot is the delight of the album with his dedicated track "Maggot at Midnight", and songs "R n B" and "Hit Song" are sure to be singles in the near future.
You are sure to laugh and cringe at the witty lyrics. Also includes Grange Hill (Adam's Charmschool) and Aled Jones (Paranoid) parodies.
One of the albums of the year. You knows it clarts!
If you have never heard any of their work (masterpieces) before then you should have a listen, its not to everyones taste, but if you like catchy tunes with great lyrics and you have a good scense of humor then pick this up!! If you have their old album then you will love this!
Sister, Charmschool (remixing the old grange hill soundtrack) and You're misses is a nutter are all superb tracks and defaintly on par with the hits from there 1st album.
Their lyrics are pure genius and each of there songs tells a story which in some way shape or form everyone can relate to (well apart from 'You're Misses is a nutter' I hope!!).
Another smash hit album from the GLC. Get it Boyo - TIDY!
What I think's great is that they seem determined to up their skills as rappers, and they could easily do a 100% serious record if they wanted. Who knows, they might do that one day. But now they rule at what they do.
