Product Description

BBC Review

As an underground group with commercial ambitions, you face a difficult hurdle: how to take an original, boundary-shifting but sometimes unpalatable sound and break it into a mass audience without spoiling the integrity of what you do in the process? It’s a hurdle that Roll Deep faced back in 2005 with the release of their debut album, In at the Deep End. A grime crew forged in the east London neighbourhood of Bow, Roll Deep have seen now-popular names like Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Tinchy Stryder and 1xtra DJ Target rise through its ranks. For …Deep End, though, it turned out that snappy grime numbers like When I’m ‘Ere lacked the commercial appeal of crossover tunes such as The Avenue and Shake a Leg.

Roll Deep, then, have evolved into a curious – albeit not terribly uncommon – thing: a grime crew that doesn’t play grime. Their fourth album, Winner Stays On, is, flagrantly, a pop album, and the good news is that they’re getting better at it. Good Times, which hit number one in the charts back in May, is excellent: a deliberately glitzy celebration of kicking up one’s heels, tales of high-street consumerism and clubbing propelled upwards on ecstatic synth bumps and a yearning chorus courtesy of Jodie Connor. Both Take Control (complete with a vocal from Alesha Dixon) and Green Light, a Calvin Harris-style pop bounce that wraps cheeky mating-game raps around a Green Cross Code-friendly metaphor, stick to a similar formula – and while this is obvious stuff, it’s certainly well-done.

Elsewhere, there are a couple of moments that hark back to Roll Deep’s grime genesis. Out the Blue finds Scratchy, Breeze, Brazen and Wiley dropping rhymes over booming sub-bass. And while Team is not exactly lyrically spectacular – it features Wiley’s habitual fall-back of ending every line with the same word – it smashes it through busy, zig-zagging synth and sheer force of numbers. More quality grime would be nice, but Winner Stays On proves Roll Deep are no longer an underground crew trying to make pop: the charts are there for the taking.

4.0 out of 5 stars It May Not Be Grime But Its Alright 22 Dec 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
Poppy hip hop is what id call it. But Roll Deep have done alright here, with the first 2 catchy singles 'Good Times' & 'Green Light' and the 3rd alright single 'Take Control' with Alesha Dixon, this albums got a certain catchyness to it. Its worth buying this if you are a pop, hip hop/rap, dance/rap, or Roll Deep lover. Its alright.

5.0 out of 5 stars People need to secure a future 1 Jan 2011
By vano1
Format:Audio CD
Had to even it up for the team as some grime fans have no respect. Roll deep put in work for years now you want to hold them back. I just dont get it you wont get the good old days back music moves forward and roll deep wont make tunes like modern day grime cause they progressed from early in the scene. Spot on cd for most listeners of an urban taste if your not caught up in rubbishing things that crosses genres. bouncy dance/electornica + reggae beats solid mcs and thats just one track 03 - what do they know one of my faves maybe 2 skippable tracks( or maybe just skippable versus personally dont like manga or j2k on some things sorry just an opinion ) . So to the masses part with your money you most probably will enjoy and also help secure the future of a team who has represented a scene called grime well in the past but seemms has not carried its fans forward not really due to the quality of the music but more the nature of the beast.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pop NOT grime! 25 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
OK so Grime's dead..
..anyone who was great in grime is NOW trying to be a pop star, BUT you might also notice a ZILLION other names cropping up from within the woodwork..

THIS IS BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL MAJOR LABEL PROSTITUTES and none of them were in the original grime scene.

AT LEAST Roll Deep killed in the grime scene, before it all went POP!

Horrible album, AVOID dearly if you HATE Chart/Pop music/JLS!!
