From sguy157
A great album with a very interesting sound! I can definitely see why people might be turned off by the way Mike Skinner raps, as it almost feels like spoken word. I'll admit, I was a bit iffy about the album at first, but after a little while I came to appreciate it. I do still think that the album has a few weak points here and there, but as a debut album, the quality on this thing is pretty impressive - especially after reading about the DIY nature of its production. The dude recorded his vocals in a wardrobe! On the lyrical side of things, I appreciate how he describes ordinary life in a way that isn't too flashy. As a result, this album feels like a glimpse into what regular life was like in central England during the early 2000s. Some of my favorites off of this include "Has It Come to This?," "It's Too Late," "Don't Mug Yourself," and "Weak Become Heroes." So if you're looking for something a little different that gives you a look into someone else's lifestyle and experiences, you should definitely check out this album.

I need to listen to this again like soon. I remember before I heard it having preconceptions that it was probably not going to live up to the hype and be some fad crap. As soon as the first lines on the first track kick in you know it's going to be great. A fantastic opening track sets up the whole thing.

Kingy - don't be a moron. The Streets (while decent) isn't the epitome of modern music, and many of those who criticize this aren't fogey dadrockers. I can't wait to see your chart.

Quite possibly my favourite album ever, speaks to me like no other album ever has. Imposible to say how much this album means to me, soundtrack to my teenage years and still relevant now.

I can see why some might hate this album but at least give it a try it might change your life.
