To any newcomer of MC Pitman, I find it hard to describe what you are about to encounter. Me and my mates have been looking forward to this album all summer and I hope I'm not disappointed. First mix in a coal miner from Nottingham, combine 'the streets' style with Slim Shady and you get Pitman; the angriest and most out spoken MC to grace the mic. P**sing in the face of the world and running off with the bog roll for a laff, pitman entertains the listener with his humourous yet genius free flow dissing everyone from Rolf Harris to Tony Blair. He is the new spokesman for the British working class and I highly recommend him to anyone who is up for a laugh but can also appreciate clever lyrics. Pitman is ideal for playing when your gettin drunk with your mates and fancy a laugh. I am basing this review on bootleg tracks I have heard over the summer - Witness the Pitness, Twat Farm and pitman says.

What can you say that hasn't already been said. A superb album from a man who would rather be digging coal with his big spade than making tunes. Pitman would rather talk about biscuits, chip rolls and tea than Uzis, pimps and ho's, which is what sets him apart from so much hip-hop. As to whether it's an acerbic, iconoclastic shot at the middle classes, make your own mind up. Jamie Oliver, The Streets and people who buy Tesco Value Baked Beans are all fair game in this excellent album, which combines quite a dry sense of humour with some very catchy beats. Not everyones cup of tea, but, if you don't like it you probably get Tesco Value Tea Bags.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR!! No Doubt About It - Finally someone making a stand for 'Hip Hop' and not the College graduate degree, 'sick ass', Bling Bling excrement that the these "True Hip Hop Fans" would have us all waving Dubs and lettin' off gats at!! Good humour, hidden depth (Listen past any swearing and he's actually saying something you know!?!), and all done to 'PROPER' beats. Any review to the conterary must have come from someone who's mum looks like Rolf Harris! Come on Rolf.
Ouch, Did he hit a nerve??

Pitman hits the spot and tells it exactly how it is in his own inimitable way, taking in everything from Jim Bowen to Aldi Baked Beans and Magnum along the way.
Makes 'The Streets' look like a Cockney gangsta wannabe....oh he is anyway! Pitman is different class and actually has something interesting to say...buy it now!

This is definitely the funniest thing I've heard for ages. Reading the reviews of this, I got the impression there are some pretty humourless people out there eg: "Students over 8 would be patronised by this unoriginal pile of gratuitously foul-mouthed adolescent pap".
It's really funny in a lot of ways: parodies of hip-hop tracks (12 is a brilliant parody of Cypress Hill: "Welcome to my world of dooooom"), viz-style observation: "collecting nectar like a bunch of busy bee bastards". It's not "a bit of a one-joke affair", there are loads of jokes, and not just at the expense of the middle class as one of the other reviewers thinks.
I can't recommend this enough to anyone who has a sense of humour.

This is the FUNNIEST MUSIC I HAVE EVER HEARD. I am in stitches whenever I hear it!!!! It simply cracks me up! The version of Roots Manuva's 'Witness The Fitness' (one of his heaviest releases ever) now entitled 'Witness The Pitness' should give to a GOOD IDEA of what you're in for! It really is hard to explain - some other reviewers are much more eloquent than myself, so I'll leave it to them. The pit seems to be the place to be - descending with glee!

To any serious fan of hip hop, you will find this hilarious upon your first encounter. From then, it all gets very boring. Its a shame, cause he obviously has a wicked sense of humour, however I think stand up comedy would be more suited to this guy - its just a bit of a one-joke affair on record. Without being condescending, this is suitable for students and under 18's (it is condescending, i know -sorry!). For seriously funny hip hop, see Tonedeff and/or Edan.

Let it be know that I hate comedy records, the novelty soon wears off. This is the worst thing Ive heard in a long time. My friend had the misfortune of buying this.. to be honest, its lacks any relevance to real hip hop music and any real fan will see right through this.

Students over 8 would be patronised by this unoriginal pile of gratuitously foul-mouthed adolescent pap that makes you realise how skillful decent musicians actually are. Anyone can hurl abuse at the middle classes; iconoclasm was done better by punk, wry working class humour by Half-Man Half Biscuit, and if this fella thinks he's entitled to deride 'The Streets' then he needs to wake up and recognise what talent really is. And it ain't shouting and pretending you can rap when you sure as doog doo can't.
