5.0 out of 5 stars The Mean, Green, Lyrical Machine., 15 Nov. 2011
This review is from: At Your Inconvenience (Audio CD)
So this is the difficult second album released by Hackney born rapper Stephen Paul Manderson AKA Professor Green. So often the second album never lives up to the success or hype of a artists previous album but personally I feel that this album has achieved this criteria and has in fact improved upon his first album `Alive Till I'm Dead'. What makes this album work is a lot down to his collaborators, many of which I had never heard of such as Sierra Kusterbeck or Ruth Anne Cunningham, their vocals are desperately needed to break up Green's quick, witty but often dragged out lyrics. I'm not entirely sure what age group this album is suppose to appeal to, it has a good mixture of upbeat and slower tracks but many of the tracks contain explicit lyrics which may offend some listeners. Saying that who in this genre doesn't use explicit lyrics these days.

There are songs on this album which do disappoint me such as the title track `At Your Convenience' and `Doll' but there are so many more songs which make this album one of the best I've heard this year. I especially like `D.P.M.O', `Remedy' and `Avalon'. It is very easy to compare Mr. Green with Eminem but I glad that although you can tell that Eminem is a big influence on Green, its good to see that he has begun to take his own direction and as long as he continues in that direction he will enjoy much needed recognition and album success. Keep up the good work.
