Listened to this last night. On 1st listen I'm loving it, could quite end up being in my top 5 AOTY list.

Also it's great to see this album doing well over here. On the release day (yesterday) it made it into the top 10 in the iTunes album charts which is great for a self released album that hasn't really had that much mainstream press (other than Zane Lowe playing the odd track)

Scroobius Pip is the man. Wherever his lyricism goes, I shall follow.

Haven't heard it yet aside from one track, but this dude never fails me. A true artist. I'm guessing it will make my Top 5.

I wholeheartedly agree about the production, the guitar/drums thing just does not work for him at all. I was pretty disappointed. That being said, "Broken Promise" is one of the best songs he's ever done.

Best spoken word album released in a very long time. I was a fan of Li(f)e by Sage Francis as well, but it feels like Sage hasn't released an album in forever even though it wasn't that long ago. The production on some tracks sadly tainted the album slightly, the track Introdiction is easily one of the best things (recorded) he's ever done.

been able to listen to it through a few times now. its solid but it really could have been a lot better. i am not a big fan of the production. the rock just doesnt mix well with his vocals. and a few of the more hiphop orientated tracks just sounded a tad gimmicky.

lyrics are solid as ever though. and introdiction is just one of the best tracks of the year.

I normally don't listen to rap, but I like this. His British accent is awesome. plus the drum beat is so amazing. it made me want to enroll in drum lessons for beginners..
