The HMV Shopping Basket

I can't remember a time when there was so many UK albums released in such a short space of time:

Kano - 140 Grime Street
Wretch 32 - Wretchrospective
Roll Deep - Return of the Big Money Sound
Marvell - Late Arrival
Sway - Signature LP
Ironik - No Point in Wasting Tears

You can roll into HMV and spend your cash on 6 albums - but who has delivered the album that is up to their potential?

Lets try and talk about the albums individually rather than tearing anyone apart people

Also where are the UK females right now?

Who are your UK Swimmers and Sinkers right now?

ironik's album has its purpose in the music industry. that album is packed with commercial cross over hits. Don't hate on the kid, just accept he's doing something a lil different from the scene he came from.

As for kano, biit disapointed to be honest...it starts off strong but then just fall's apart and comes across to generic 2nd half of the album. Production was a let down on the album..

Sway - good album actually. I was getting bored of sway until I heard the album.

Copping Wretch tomorrow so can't really comment, but the tune with badness is sick!

Ironik not my style but he will sell more than everyone on the list which means he has fans and can't be discounted without soem discussion

People are sheep. Ironik will simply sell becuase he has major label backing and money put into promo etc. I dont think much people on this blog or serious music fans will claim he is in anyway talented.... Just my opinion

Ironik will sell to the young kids just getting into the music just like MC Hammer did to my generation. He's the HipHop Hannah Montana. Don't hate, just don't buy it if you don't like it.

Wretch and Sway are the 2 albums on the list that swim the best. Consistent, quality and inventive.

Kano - agree with DJ B, first half is strong, second half isn't.

Roll Deep's album is their best yet for me but I haven't checked Marvell's.

I absolutely love Kano's album. It's been on repeat in my stereo for a couple weeks now.

Sway's is OK but I wouldn't be bothered if I didn't hear it again.

Unfortunately I haven't heard the rest yet (and have NO intention of listening to Ironik's) but I'm definitely planning on having a listen to the Roll Deep one.

Who said anything about hating? I just think he is shit. Jesus I hate people that say "don't hate". They all tend to be cock suckers.

Ben K

I'm with you everyone hates and i think that is part of being able to really enjoy something!

I can't get the Ironik thing at all.

Roll Deep album is a lot... Fat Mac 90 is a tune, great to hear J2K

KANO IS AN IDIOT HE HAD A GOOD THING GOING AND SLOWLEY BUT SURLEY WAS FLYING THE FLAG FOR BRITISH RAP , HE THEN CAME UNDER BAD CIRCUMSTANCES WITH HIS LABEL THEN WENT BACK TO KANO IN 2004 I RESPECT HIS HUSTLE AND HE IS 1 OF THE BEST LYRICALY BUT HE WONT SELL UNITS WITH HIS NEW OLD SCOOL IM FROM THE HOOD MIXTAPE STYLE ALBUM .


SWAYS ALBUM IS FUKIN AMZAZING

"Kano is an idiot"
Interesting...

I havent heard any of Kano's new material but will be happily supprised if he has returned to a more grimey sound/lyrics. Dosnt necessarily have to go back to boys love girls but maybe less craig david lady songs, although i can appreciate that gains him a wider audience.

Im not a big fan of sway so cant really comment on his and same goes for ironik.
