Wow, an album I am actually very familiar with. This whole Bristol trip-hop scene thing was actually on my mind yesterday. Thinking about how different areas have specific local cultures that sometimes break through and spread and I was wondering how organic that always is... Anyway, this album isn't really organic. I gave it another listen just now to see if age had changed my views but no, I still feel it has the same issues. Perhaps in a Spotify playlists everywhere world it could stand even stronger but for me it still feels like it has no flow - each track is pretty good on its own, but put together and they just kind of jar: there's no real cohesive soundscape of the album itself. It jumps from full tilt reinterpretation of "Black Steel" to the dreamy Portishead sampling "Hell is Round the Corner"... and we do stay in that groove for a fair bit but then "Strugglin'" just slams on the brakes without a lot of breaks. It's a weird little album - the tracks still stand up, the lyrics are often intriguing little snippets of cool and there's lots to enjoy about it, but yeah. Still doesn't work as a cohesive whole for me.
