I was expecting to skip this. It was better then i was expecting. I'm not into British hip hop, modern hip hop, people with little in their names. This wasn't bad. I'm not sure I'd listen again but i didn't hate it.

lol this was the musical equivalent of those memes trashy people share on Facebook when they don't want to admit they're bottom feeders, and think everyone around them is the problem, holding them down. Just a whole heap of mindless "street philosophy" about removing toxic people from your life and being true to yourself. SPARE ME. 1/5.

First time that I heard it, it didn't impress me that much. However repeated listens showed me how brilliant this record is. Her rhyme schemes work masterfully with the laidback yet creative production.

Damn, nice surprise here. I've never heard of her but Little Simz (and her team?) is talented. Really good lyrics/wordplay on a bunch of tracks (Offence, Venom...despite copious use of the p word, Pressure, Sherbet Sunset) and she can rap (Missy Elliott fast). Great bass lines and beats on the first two tracks (I could listen to Boss over and over) and some of the later ones (101 FM, Therapy). Tight album. Gonna have to listen to more of her music.

I am really impressed at Little Simz' skill here. She has a lyrical deftness, a flow and capability I do not regularly hear. The brevity of the album is also a big factor here. A lot of rap albums have so much filler, skits and interludes that just... ugh. It makes it difficult for me to want to come back to the album and do a complete re-listen. Hearing the "n-word" so often I did start to tune it out. It is tough to hear in people's albums nowadays. Definitely a nice change of pace album for me. I really enjoyed this and the showcase of her skill as well as how the MC really compliments her.

I like her. Has a Guy Ritchie vibe. She could easily score any Ritchie or Soderburgh movie. Selfish is a beauty of a track. Wounds sounds like an Eminem track. VENOM! So much being said there. I need to revisit that one. This was a true project. Tons of work, talent, hooks, beats, all of it. If you're going to make a hip hop record today, this is required listening.

This Little Simz album from 2019 was added as part of the newest update to 1001 albums (circa 2021). While not the newest album on the list, it is still fresh enough that it's quite bold to put it down in the list of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Regardless, Little Simz is a rapper I'm already familiar with, having released the fantastic Sometimes I Might Be Introvert in 2021 (which could very well be album of the year for me). Truly, I have few qualms about this being added to the list. Simz hits hard with her rhymes, switching up her flow and vocal styling to keep you engaged. Simz is accompanied by production from Inflo, who brings beats and structure to the songs that are unlike anything else right now. Genuinely incredible. Compared to her follow-up, I think I still prefer SIMBI for the satisfying framing and continued pushing of boundaries, but this is still a great album through and through.

I was wondering when I would get my first rap album. Expected Tupac, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Eminem, Jay-Z, NWA, Biggie, or any other of the pioneers of rap. Instead I got a no name, marginally talented, British rapper that no one has heard of. Trying not to let that effect my rating, listening to this with an open mind, it still was below average at best.

This album came up on the list as I was discovering Little Simz through her newest album, "Sometimes I Might Be Introvert." I already knew from repeated listens of that album that I liked her as an artist. GREY Area grooves just as well. It's perhaps a little more aggressive than its follow-up. It does stay strong from start to finish though. Boss has an amazing beat and I love the keyboards at the end of the track. She has amazing wordplay on all of the tracks and both the words and the beats stay with you long after the album is over. Apart from Boss I'd say my favorites are Wounds, Venom, Therapy and Sherbet Sunset.

2019 is shockinglu recent. A part of me feels albums should take more time to digest before making this, but i'm trying to shake that off. This feels really different and is clearly worth putting on the list. Strong 4.5 for me - really impressed with how concise the album is while still being a powerhouse.

Track one opens with a bold jazz sound that I dig a lot more than I imagine I will the vocals. Not a fan of English rap in general, but so far this is alright. Enjoying through track 2, Simz cleverly avoids the drill style that she could easily fall into and instead opts for a more classical hiphop sound. It's a little Minajy but with the pop elements stripped away to leave something rawer and less produced. Good - Boss, 101FM, Venom Bad - None really. Art - It's stark, the face and sit coupled with the trainers in the background make a nice impact.

I've really enjoyed listening to this today!! Is it horns or pan pipes on the opening track?

I hear some references to other rappers I love and this makes sense that their inspirations are people I also enjoy. Would like to get more into Little Simz and listen to more of their albums!

Really interesting, and good, with funny songs, important songs, and catchy songs. Not all uk hip hop is this good. Favourite part was the (possibly coincidental) nod to Akala when she spoke about escaping the "fuckery" - in a line with a very 'Akala' flow to it

It gets off to a great start with the funky bass-line and flutes in “Offence”, but the second track “Boss” was raw and irritating. Overall, I like her cool, laid-back delivery. I prefer the tracks co-performed with other artists, as I find singing gives the rapping something to contrast to. It's interesting she co-wrote all tracks with Dean Josiah Cover, the guy behind of one of my favourite under-the-radar projects, “Sault”, and he produced it as well. I think this definitely adds to the melodic feel of the album.

Easily one of the best rap albums of the last few years. The production especially shines through it’s use of actual instruments. Each song feels unique in it’s own way. My one knock is that Simz uses the same British monotone cadence on every single song. I think it holds the music back a bit. 4.25 stars

Most of the beats are really nice, and the production is really clean too. That's about all that salvages a 3 for me. I just finished it and already can't really remember or differentiate any of the songs. Just "edgy" lyrics in an unconventional delivery with an accent. I'm sure there's probably some good content in there but I didn't catch it the first time through and won't bother to try again.

Starts really strong on the first couple of tracks but I feel it loses momentum whenever singing is brought into the choruses. I like it when she leans more towards the experimental. Beats are very moody and atmospheric and it's a real 3.5 for me but ultimately it feels more like an assemblage of fairly distinct singles than a cohesive album so I'm gonna round down.

This was a new artist and album for me, and I was pleasantly surprised. Little Simz's rapping style had a very pleasing flow, and her vocals were interesting. This album felt very fresh, even compared to other recent hip hop albums. Sometimes on hip hop albums, I feel like all of the beats blend together and aren't distinguished enough, but that was not a problem here; each song stood well on its own and offered something to distinguish it from other songs on the album. I also found the album straight to the point as there were no interludes to be found on this album; in this case, I think that made the album stronger.

-In "Offence" there is a bar that says "Got my team on deck taking out all pawns/And my knight got your queen in check, mate" which is a cool chess bar that *almost* makes sense -"Offence" also has a cool bass slide that's cool, and some solid fast flows -Oh, it's the "Venom" TikTok song. Also some great speedy bars in that song. Actually, the main part that is the TikTok sound is actually the least interesting part. The verses have great flow and rhymes, and the rap has a topic (not just rhyming random words and phrases) -"101 FM" is a bit too bri*ish for me" -Most tracks are like medium good, with "Offence" and "Venom" being solid. Not quite consistent enough for a 4, but one of the strongest hip hop albums I've heard in my opinion

GREY Area's brevity appears to be considered a strength in most reviewers. I'm ambivalent on the length: My copy of Stillness In Wonderland came as a double LP and I maintain it's an excellent record, with Simz's voice the standout factor. The followup is trimmer, slicker, and more varied in production: A wonderful vibes record, and meaty at that. But I still don't understand the superlatives. Granted, I listened to it for the first time in pretty bad conditions and found it boring. And it certainly isn't that.

Loved the loops and beats but parts felt sophomoric at times. Little Simz had a strong presences but the choruses didn’t feel raw in an artistic sense; they felt under produced, just not on the same level. Lyrically, the content dives into some heavy places. I was torn at how much I fully like the album and, ultimately, decided on another round.

I know self confidence is something to be encouraged, but Little Simz really does think she's the bee's knees. This is a decent hip hop album with cool instrumentation and some contemporary themes, but I'm not sure the stratospheric levels of self-adulation are fully justified. 3/5

Agréablement surpris. Un peu moins agrassif que les autres dans le genre. L’approche aux beats à la construction des tounes est différente et j’aime beaucoup ça.

Wasn’t sure what to expect from this. Not a genre I frequent. Ended up listening to most of it twice, couple of tracks I really wasn’t into (2nd) but some I quite enjoyed. 3rd, 4th, 9th. Quite interesting Rhythm/beats, with mixture of instruments/sounds (strings etc) etc.

Great beats, possibly should have taken more notice of the explicit tag prior to popping it on in the living room. UKs answer to Coco Solid, with higher production values than her earlier stuff. Actually this selfish track almost could be coco. Sherbet sunset, sounds like the single. I enjoyed that, I give it a $6.99 bargain bib probability of ending up on the cd shelves. $10 if I’m feeling rich. Will let it play if Spotify replays, but maybe not if sharp eared kids are about

So it seems like with newer printings of the book, some versions include more additions than others. Mine only has one new album per year after 2017 (and barely more than that for the previous years in the 2010s) and doesn't include this particular album. It's frustrating evaluating albums without entries for them, because I have no idea what made the authors find these albums essential when listening to them in a vacuum. While I often find the entries laughable, appalling, or eye-rolling, it does provide a starting point or context for some of their choices. This is a fine album. Pleasant, acceptable, but pretty ordinary to my ear. I wouldn't mind hearing it again - and I want to give it a few more listens before I evaluate it on its own merits, but the nature of this project makes that difficult. I can't really sit with this album and let it marinate to see if it's a grower with deeper significance if I'm rushing off to the next album in 24 hours while also listening to all the music I would normally be listening to in that time span. At best, I can probably squeeze one more listen in to see if something jumps out at me. This project - this exercise - has really highlighted the bizarre publishing habits of the authors. I know there are localized versions for non-English speaking countries, are there two separate volumes printed, one for Americans and one for the British as well? Why do we have contemporaneous versions in the same language? Why include more updates in one than the other? It makes the whole thing feel like a mish-mash with little thought put into what is actually essential listening and more a localized marketing gimmick to sell books. The absurd choices and flippant reasoning had already lowered my overall opinion of the series, but my general enthusiasm has almost completely given way to frustration. I continue to stick this out because I'm stubborn (plus sunk cost fallacy) and I'm a huge music nerd, but I feel like my time would be better suited doing almost anything else.

I've never heard of Little Sim. All of the music was new to me. This album was not for me. Some okay rhythms, but the content of the lyrics makes this a definite "nope"

Even for a shorter runtime this LP can't hold enough interest to be more than background music. Occasionally a memorable bar or beat will slip through, but Simz' doesn't put up nearly enough on the production or lyricism front to warrant a re-listen.

Ganz cool, aber klingt wie etwas, das Leute bei einem langweiligen Cocktail-Abend anmachen, damit sich keiner über die Musik beschweren kann

Znowu leje zamiast padac, bo kolejna nowozytna pozycja z roku 2k19, dodatkowo artystki ktora juz mialem okazje poznac na plycie ubieglego roku, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert ktora byla mocno hajpowana wsrod hip hopowych headow, jako cos swiezego w mainstreamie z kobiecego rapu, a lista jeszcze wylosowala dodatkowego od pani Little Simz, mianowicie jej szarna strefe, ktora brzmi jak demkowy epek przy tym co sluchalem wczesniej od tej pani, nie tylko przez dlugosc materialu, bo tylko 35 minut na 10 trakach, ale poza beatami ktore trzymaja rowny poziom przeskakujac od energentycznych bangerow w stylu venoma czy 101 FM po stonowane beaty oparte na klasycznych instrumentalach jak trumpetowy flowers ktory zamyka plyte czy klawiszowy selfish na ktorym robote robia backujace wokale, wiec o ile instrumentalna czesc jest mocnym plusem, tak flow jakie sprzedaje tutaj pani Simz jest jako takie w zaleznosci od traka, najlepiej slucha mi sie jej na szybszych bangierach, a chyba nie jestem w tym sam, bo te utwory maja zdecydowanie wiecej ripleji na spotifaju, od strony lirycznej to ciezko tutaj okreslic jednoznacznie czy jest to rap pisany przez artystke czy raczej popowy rap tworzony grupa w celu napisania tego czegos co bedzie dobrym tekstem, raczej druga opcja wchodzi tutaj bardziej w gre, zwlaszcza biorac pod uwage jak wyglada lista creditsow na tym i introwertykowym krazku, na plejke leci najbardziej osluchany utwor, wiec 101 FM, wiec kolejny krazek wyspiarskiej artystki zaliczony i to nawet podczas porzadkow codziennych na liscie, a nie spodziewalem sie, ze spotkam sie tutaj z jej nazwiskiem, zwlaszcza, ze dopiero slyszalem o niej po plycie z ubieglego roku, ktora z pewnoscia sie tutaj znajdzie, jesli lista bedzie w najblizszej przyszlosci aktualizowana

Don't know this. Don't like this. Don't care about this. For me this whole project is about listening to groundbreaking or influential albums or even masterpieces that have shaped their respective styles. So why bother us with a random dime-a-dozen modern rap album?

It's not very often I want to stretch my scrotum so far that it tears, but after enduring eight minutes of this record, I had to do just that. Now it's really baggy and a bit of an eyesore. How am I ever going to seduce Jessica from my yoga class now?

I don't need to hear any more rap before I die, thanks. Despite the general lack of misogyny (which is not surprising from a female) I continue to be offended by the casual racism.
