All of the reviews I've read have been positive. I'd like to check this out as well.

I dont really know how much I like the new single. Sometimes I think it's good, other times I think I dont like it.

the review I read was positive

but it seems almost impossible for it to top his debut

I always the upbeat tempo of the backing music on the first album - "garage" music, or whatever it was - the pairing of dance music and rap...from what I've heard of the new one, it seems more downtempo, less dance. Also, I think I liked the lyrics on the first one better. That said, songs like "fit but you know it" are really good!

Mike Skinner's first album, what is it Original Pirate Material is something that I have wanted to get for awhile, but every time I am in the record shop thinking of something to get, I always forget it. I've heard bits and pieces of the new album, it was the album on the week a while ago on triple J radio, the only song that I can really remember is the one that goes on about the gil who is fit, but knows it- sounds good, but not as great as his previous stuff
