EDITORS’ NOTES

The poet/playwright’s mastery of detail and character translates into engrossing rap. With evocative descriptions of the everyday, Tempest’s second album portrays seven lives on one London street being transformed by the forces of modern living, while producer Dan Carey’s steely electronica reflects the hard times and spiralling tensions within those stories. The riveting song cycle demands to be heard in sequence but “Ketamine For Breakfast” and “Tunnel Vision” embody the album’s rich moods and imagery.
