5.0 out of 5 stars
The Streets album 3 !, 10 April 2006
I Brought this the day it came out, just like i did with their second album, a grand dont come for free and i can say Im not dissapointed ! and i only like the steets cause they are apart of my past ! mike skinner and crew have moved on and are more professional in what they do. Here are the tracks and what i think of them :
1 - prangin out
A very good track to start on ! good beat and good lyrical movement on the chorus ! 8 out of 10 !
2 - War Of The sexes
An O.k streets track, the backing vocals are appearing more and more in ever streets album, which is a good variance to mike skinners chavey voice ! 6 out of 10
3 - the hardest way to make an easy living
A really good track, one of my favourites, lyrics are o.k i spose but not the greatest streets track around ! 9 out of 10
4 - All Goes Out the window
Abit slower and backing singer has more fo the lyrics, i believe it drags on abit ..an album filler ! 4 out of 10
5 - Memento Mori
Classic streets track..great beat and funny lyrics ! love this one 10 out of 10 !
6 - Can't Con An Honest John
Good chorus, but the verses just feel lost in the backing beat ! a track about being conned and conning others ! a way of maing a living LOL, so a track true to the title 7 out of 10
7 - When You Wasnt Famous
The single, I must say when i first heard it I was worried the streets were going down hill, but i have got used to it, great tune and a summer hit im sure it will be 9 out of 10
8 - Never went to church
This track is what 'dry ya eyes mate' was on the last album, very sad track about the loss of mike's dad ! hopefully this will be the next single cause 'dry ya eyes' was played FOREVER and still is. Good track 9 out of 10
9 Hotels Expressionism
Probably the worst track on the album, the chorus isnt great but the beat and backing vocals are so so 4 out of 10
10 - Two Nations
Typical, chav/ football hooligan track about the hatred of another country ! yet again not the greatest streets track but fills the album up nicely 6 out of 10
11 - Fake Streets Hats
Weird, cause it slips from being a live track to being a studio track..AMAZING chorus the lyrics are soo true and you will be like i was singing along to them ! based on the chorus i;ll give this 9 out of 10 !
Well done Mike Skinner and crew, you made my worries disspaear about how bad this album was gona be and all the bad reviews it was getting !, id like to see more of ya in the future ! Good album, GO BUY IT ! and im not a chav im a geek Lol !
