3.0 out of 5 stars More of what's hot only slightly warmer!, 31 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Panic Prevention (Audio CD)
Is it just me or is this the norm at the mo? Hot on the heels of the streets, the technophobes came running and we had Plan B, Get Cape, Wear Cape Fly and now Jamie T!

The difference is Jamie T has the hooks and the pop sensibility to make it into the big league and truly folow Mike Skinner to that lucrative trainer deal! Plan B was overly long and lost my interest and Get Cape, Wear Cape Fly was, in my eyes the better album but more rooted in the folk tradition. Jamie T has created a true amalgamation of his influences both from his headphones and from the street!

"Sheila," "If You Got The Money" and "Calm Down Dearest" will be familiar to the drive time radio listeners by now and whilst give a good introduction to the album, they are also the most polished songs on it and represent what is probably the sum-total of the singles. What's left is a rough and ready amalgamation of The Clash, ska, folk and the grit of real life.

It's good but its been done before! It won't leave my stereo for a while but I get the sneaking suspicion that once it does it won't make it back again again for a while, if ever! Buy Get Cape, Wear Cape Fly instead if you're interested in the current "Folk-Hop (Sorry!)" scene.
