I should hate this. It’s horribly commercial – but the lyrics have a directly political theme and it’s laced with punk attitude, despite the pop sensibilities dominating proceedings.
It’s hip-hop with an edge. The title track has the most ‘rock’ backing track of the offerings here, but all of the songs are excruciatingly catchy.
Bass heavy, the vocals are very accessible – it’s hardly gangsta rap – but, despite this, it is very listenable. Barney from Sonic Boom Six guests on one track and some of the choruses could almost be described as epic – there is some brilliant sampling going on here. Try it – you’ll be surprised how much you like it.
