5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best albums to date
Lyrically & production wise, fully on point, showing why he can claim to be king of grime. Serious at times & All-out crazy Wiley at others, A must have for any Grime fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Show From Wordy Wiley, 23 Jan. 2012
By

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Evolve or Be Extinct (Audio CD)
Following hard on the heels of 2011's '100% Publishing' the twenty-two
tracks comprising 'Evolve Or Be Extinct' proves that Wiley has been a
busy boy. He continues to plow his own furrow with his idiosyncratic,
fast-thinking, fast-rhyming style. Given the quantity of new material here
it is to his credit that there are very few dips in quality. The beats are
sharp, the bass-lines bouncy as a rubber ball and the words often very funny
(the playful swipes at Chipmunk and Calvin Harris on the title track are hilarious!)

There has been little musical or rhythmic evolution since his last outing
but it doesn't matter a jot with material as strong as this. Wiley has found
his groove and he's clearly happy to exploit its potential to the max but
there is a danger that he will reach the bottom of the pot soon if he doesn't
extend his range next time around. 'Boom Blast' might be a nod towards things
to come; it's a dance-friendly track which wouldn't sound out of place in
the hands of Dizzee Rascal, with its four-square funky beats and addictive
hook-line. Wiley manages a radio-friendly number without compromise however.

With so much to listen to it's hard to extract the winners but I particularly
enjoyed the bleeps and tweets of 'Weirdo', an invention which lets us into
the darker side of our host's imagination; the pithy wit of 'Customs', a skit
with some very funny vocal characterizations worthy of Peter Cook and Dudley
Moore in their heyday; the strut and swagger of 'No Love Lost' and the
curiously tender 'Life At Sea' where Wiley shows that he has a soft side too.

All-in-all 'Evolve Or Be Extinct' bravely manages not to overstay its
welcome. Wiley remains one of the finest wordsmiths of his generation.

Recommended.
