3.0 out of 5 stars Had a lot of potential..., 12 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: See Clear Now (Cd Album) (Audio CD)
With the lead singles, wearing my rolex, and cash in my pocket, this looked to be the album that would finally give Wiley the mainstream credit he deserves after creating an underground scene and platform for so many artists that have got commercial success such as Dizzee Rascal and Kano. However the album plays out like a reflection of his career, in that it is far too inconisitent. It starts well and with intent with the feracious Ryder Intro, and whilst the track: 'I need to be' approaches filler status, the album carries well until track 8: Step by Step which frankly just sounds like a mess, and contrasts greatly to the previous track 5 AM, possibly the best track on the album and one of the few tracks where Wiley has found a balance between appealing to the mainstream and the underground music scene where he made his name. The lyrics are engaging and easily relatable to many. However through too much of the album Wiley seems caught between making chart tracks and underground tracks and the result does not work out very well, this is why the album tails of dramatically after 5 AM with no singles to support the album and engage the listener through the rest of the album. If your new to Wiley i would suggest listening to his new 100% publishing album or his new evolve or be extinct album which give a clearer indication of his talent.
