An unprecedented album in British hip-hop and even world hip-hop.

It's amazing how a small portion of a British man's life can make such a great and interesting album.

What makes it a great album is that you have to listen to it all the way through everytime because all the tracks are in sequence, like a story. It is truly riveting.

The songs are all amazing, relatable and interesting. There is no lyricist out there like him. Mike Skinner is on a class of his own. Unlike most song writers, he includes little details (Eg. It Was Supposed To Be So Easy, Empty Cans, Could Well Be In) which makes the songs interesting and you pick something new up every time.

He is also unlike other song producers. It doesn't matter if he or his uncredited guests performing a hook line, chorus or verse are not the greatest singers. He still manages to make the parts of the song work to make a killer album.

It is unfortunate his more recent albums haven't been as popular (or good for that matter) because The Streets deserved more of a popular farewell than what they've received. Hopefully Mike Skinner will return under a new alias or band.

Unbeatable album
