11 Songs, 50 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The joy in this album comes as much from the emotional peaks as from the concept—a deftly told story of new love and missing money. “Dry Your Eyes” needs no introduction, but “Could Well Be In” and “Blinded by the Lights” are just as powerful, with Mike Skinner quietly narrating the heart into two beautifully observed tales of fledgling romance and woozy dance floors. “Fit But You Know It” even updates the battle of the sexes, sounding both conceited and wise at the same time.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

this album is fit

man, I never thought white british guys could rap. boy was I wrong. the lyrics, the backbeats, it's "all that and a drop of tea"! I have no idea what that is supposed to mean. and they're right...a grand really don't come for free. the streets are fit, and now you know it.

oh yeah, the video for "fit but you know it" is funny and original.
mad props to rupert grint. he's my dogg.

A Classic

This guy is great. He may sound a bit strange at the beginning, but after a while he gets better. All the songs have good lyrics and some are extremely funny. My favorites include: It was supposed to be so easy, Fit But You Know It, Dry Your Eyes, and Empty Cans.

Brilliant pure and simple

Have the patience to listen to this album straight through at least five times. After this excercise you will be so addicted to it that you will not be able to stop listening. It is cinematic, comical, tragic and genius.
