4.0 out of 5 stars Essential summer listening, 23 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Man Like I (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Natty brings a very British outlook to what can only be described as Soul Reggae (even though he tries to avoid being branded as that). His lyrics travel the gamut between private drama (break-ups, abandoned kids, getting high) and bigger social issues (kudos for the phrase 'hug a hoody' and a comment on exactly how far £13,000 a year will get you in life).

Musically, this is acoustic reggae with everything from one guitar to a full band, and emotionally it does not hit as hard as perhaps it might. This is still a great summer album, going from the pure joy of opener July, to the stoner love song 'Stoned On You', the upbeat ballad 'Bedroom Eyes' to the downbeat ending 'Say Bye Bye,' in which Natty explains to his son why he shan't be seeing him any more.

When listening to this record, I was mostly finding 'Joyful Rebellion' by K-os springing to mind, which makes sense since he also performs a fair few reggae inspired acoustic tracks, but strangely, I also found The Stone Roses debut album coming to mind, at least in terms of tone, if not musical or lyrical similarity.

Recommended for afternoons in the garden in the sun.
