I considered Dizzee Rascal to be the UK's antidote to the chart-dominant American rap mono-culture, but now he has joined forces with them to produce this mishmash of cliched modern rap-cross-dance hybrids that nobody can escape from these days. Quite often the hard work sounds like it was done by producers across the atlantic, with Dizzee just contributing the vocals from some London basement. Quite disappointing. On one track he teams up with the anti-christ of modern pop music himself, Willy-am.
There are many times when I felt like I was listening to the Lonely Island, except they would have made a much better job of it.
The tracks "Don't Need A Reason" & "Bassline Junkie" are the only standouts on this release, and prove that he is still capable of making great music when he tries, but two tracks do not an album make.

Dizzee Rascal, one of the masters of grime and famous for his début album Boy In The Corner has expanded from the UK and has expanded to a mainstream audience. When I heard that his 5th album was coming out, my hopes were high. However, this doesn't seem to be the case any more.

The Fifth starts off with (mostly) auto-tuned tracks, many talking about fame and swagger, and continues to until the end.

With the singles, Goin' Crazy with Take That star Robbie Williams has Dizzee singing about the price of fame and Bassline Junkie is just a song for Dizzee's affection for bassline beats.

The good news about this album is that lyrics are witty at places and the beats on the LP. Additional vocals like Jessie J and will.i.am make some tracks worth listening to. The bad part is that the lyrics don't actually mean anything and the addition of auto-tuned lyrics in some places make some tracks not worth listening. BITC had meaningful lyrics and top-notch songs like I Luv U and Fix Up Look Sharp. Another problem is that Dizzee tries to attract a larger audience by trying to make it mainstream so it can appeal to the listeners in the USA. Dizzee tried to do this on Tongue and Cheek, his last album.

To me, its funny how albums which are 4th or 5th can get (not all the time) mediocre or appalling reviews, take for example, Encore, Eminem's 5th (counting Infinite, his 1st album) album and Results May Vary, Limp Bizkit's 4th album. Both albums were released to mixed or average scores. So looking at this album, not really a surprise.

Overall, The Fifth is a album which is very lukewarm. If you are a typical mainstream music fan or want to give this to a kid (be warned, explicit content), then I suggest so. But if you are a die-hard grime, Brithop or Dizzee fan, give this a miss.

I didn't want to give this album 3 stars.

2.5 stars.

It is a good album with some good stand out tracks. "Arse Like That" is certainly a club banger.
I much preferred Dizzee with the "Boy In The Corner" album when his music was more grimey.
Worth a download though.

Different from his other albums which were grimebased this album has more of a party sound and has lots of features like jessie j and tinie tempah which i love but some will prefer previous cds.There are 2 kind of grimy tunes i don,t need a reason and the awesome bassline junkie but like i said i think this is for the clubs.

I love this album so much. Yes it is different to his early stuff but I sometimes think artists cant win. If they stick to the same sound people say they r boring and churn out the same stuff all the time. If they change like dizzee has they accuse them of selling out and going 'mainstream'. I just enjoy this for what it is, a very good album! 'Love this town' is absolutely amazing! What a tune! Well done dizzee :-)
