Uuh – That's good.
With my diet of Pere Ubu, Brian Eno, Bob Dylan, David Byrne, JJ Cale, Pink Floyd, I am no expert on Garage, Drum & Bass or Soul but this album must justify all the hype and awards. It is accessible to an outsider and it works. I have to say I can detect influence from across the board but that has to be a good thing. There are several dimensions to this music that I love. The rhythm, off beat, syncopation and quirkiness is brilliant. Then there's the lyrics. This girl is "in yer face" with genuine confrontational profundity. I don't go a bundle on Rap music generally and the influence here is strong, but for me, at last, put to good use. In short I'd say this is an album for anyone. You don't have to be into Garage or R&B to love this. This will be a classic so get it now and enjoy.
