The question is, who are they? Jordan "Rizzle" Stephens and Harley "Sylvester" Alexander-Sule are just 19 and 20 years old respectively, just a couple of teens who decided in the last year or so to start creating their own fresh style of hip-hop after meeting at Blatchington Mill school in Brighton, UK, collaborating on a few songs and then finally, with help from a friend, made some music videos on their YouTube channel that showcased their strengths with no real weaknesses.

They've only really "officially" released two songs, but they've got a ton more online and recently put together a number one duet with X-Factor runner-up Olly Murs in August 2011, but their inaugural album definitely tells the world they've got the knack for not just being confined to a "collaborator" any longer.

14 songs, totaling just about 50 minutes:

1. Dreamers - they know what they want, and that's total domination. First England, then the world. They come out swinging, and they definitely score big by showing they will not being denied their chance to show everyone they're the real deal. They rap about how about they're ready to take off, and don't step on their Nike trainers! It's only a dream away, according to this opener.

2. When I Was A Youngster - they're young, they're letting you know who they are and what they wanted when they were kids, and these guys really know how to have fun with their music, mixing some reggae in the background with fresh modern beats, and this one song puts a couple of older more established rappers to shame with their actual joy of creating their music.

3. Round Up - they're mixing accordions with hip-hop beats and they make it work, but with an edge worth a listen.

I am old enough to better. Having grown up with De La Soul and the Hip Hop electro compilation tapes of the Eighties. World weary from watching Hip Hop go down the gangster route. My hand was forced due to charperone duties. Off I ventured to Sheffield Plug venue to see the Rizzlekicks. Having only heard a couple of singles, the cd was duly slipped into the stereo for the journey down.

Surprised yes. Refreshing yes. Vocal ticks are straight outta the Aspects album "Correct English" and the quirky nature of the tunes too. It could be a direct linage. Thats not to degrade this album. It puzzles me how and why they are attached and promoted with such acts as One Direction and the Brit pop manufactured dirge. They are more than that pap. This is clever mature Hip Hop.

What amazes me after seeing them live, is how toned down this album is. Again not a critism. Live these tracks come into there own, its pure English Hip Hop on Speed.

Get this album and buy the Aspects Correct English and Mystery Theatre and you wont go wrong.

As the Guardian newspaper once said of the Aspects debut "Aspects are the brightest hopes for British hip hop". Well the Rizzlekicks are not only the brightest... "they are million candles brighter".

The greatest duo to have come out of the British music industry in years, (yes, even over Disclosure!) Rizzle Kicks are simply everything hip hop should be, smart, sharp, and tolerant. They've captured a very old-school happy-go-lucky image, but don't let that convince you that there's no substance behind it. Wise beyond their years, Rizzle Kicks are well worth the Brit School hype, and well above the Brit School stereotypical bubblegum pop image. Simply fantastic, there's no other words to describe their feel.

I was highly anticipating this album before I heard it in full - 'Down With the Trumpets' is one of my favourite tracks of 2011, and I'd watched all the videos on YouTube more times than I can count (actually a little surprised more of the 'covers' don't appear on the album - 'Price tag', 'You need me', 'Fly me to the moon' etc).

'Stereo Typical' doesn't disappoint, however.
Rizzle Kicks are two young lads from Brighton, rapping and singing about life through their eyes (drinking, smoking, girls and life in general, intertwined with that essential in rap and hip-hop: cockiness), over some really cracking music (and these are varied beats too, from quite guitar based to oldskool 80's to jazz). It's as simple as that.
For me, some tracks are not as strong as others; 'Demolition Man' and 'Travellers Chant' don't stand out as the best examples of RK's work. Tracks like 'Stop With The Chatter' and 'Homewrecker' are where RK really come alive and show us their skills both as songwriters/lyricists and rappers.
But on the whole 'Stereo Typical' is a great debut album; fresh sounding, exciting and intelligent (without being preachy) whilst at the same time managing to be pretty laid back. It will remain in my CD player for some time.

Great album from the cheeky Brighton duo. Really catchy numbers that you can really sing along to. Get down with the trumpets.

I first heard of Rizzle Kicks via a James Corden tweet to their YouTube video for "Down with the Trumpets." I listened to it a few times, tried a few of their others, and then couldn't stop listening to it. I played some for my son, then 2, and he absolutely dug it, dancing around and having fun. So we got the CD and over the past year we have played it and played it and played it. We'll go a few weeks without listening to it, then he'll ask for it again.

No, this isn't really music for little kids, but he doesn't really understand any of the naughty words yet, and we all love the songs. Our favorites are "Mama Do the Hump," "Dreamers," "Down with the Trumpets," and "Prophet." Most of the songs are pretty good. I could probably do without "Homewrecker" but even that has grown on me enough I don't mind it.

I'm not really a hip-hop or rap fan, but these guys just seem like they have a lot of fun and the music is infectious.
