5.0 out of 5 stars melody heaven, 20 April 2005
This review is from: A Grand Dont Come for Free [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
the sublime and delicate melodies of this performer are underrated by many - but he is surely the finest artist at his craft the British establishment has ever let loose upon the world. His understanding of strings is angelic and perhaps only outdone by his Keats-like grasp of Romantic lyricism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music with wit, 4 Nov 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: A Grand Dont Come for Free [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
As with Original Pirate Material, Mike Skinner combines good music with witty narrative lyrics, in one of the best records of 2004.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mike Skinner - the story teller., 16 Jun 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: A Grand Dont Come for Free [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
After buying, and loving The Streets first album I thought they couldnt improve. I couldnt be further from the truth. The album runs like a story board in the life of Mike Skinner from a dodgy wedding, a wild holiday with the boys to the break up of his cheating girlfriend and then to the smash hit that is 'Dry your Eyes'. Its almost a autobiography written for music. Its touching and for anyone whos lived can associate with the words that Mike Skinner delivers with both cheek and sincerity. What makes me warm to The Streets albums is always the last track. Skinner always ends on an upbeat note and thats how all good stories should end.

5.0 out of 5 stars CD + DVD version, 31 Jan 2014

I won't bore you with album blabla - there's enough of reviews out there - to cut it short, great lyrics backed with great beats, a classic.

What I want to tell you about is the DVD - it's a really nice bonus overall, just bear in mind that it was released almost decade ago, when 4:3 TVs were still very common and that's how the DVD is mastered - so the videos that are panoramic are letterboxed. So on a 16:9 tv you get a 4:3 square with black bars on the sides, and within that square, you get additional black bars on top and bottom, which looks nasty on modern TVs, but would look totally I on an old square tv. I hope I managed to describe it well enough ;) still a nice thing to have.
