We had a thread on them a month or so back. You can go search for it. I bought the album then. Not a completely consistent album, but it still has a lot more good songs on it than most rap albums.

It's a cool alternative to your basic hip hop.

He's cool, but I haven't listened to him in ages. I found him a bit of a novelty act, actually.

A friend of mine bought the is CD and hated it, so she sent it to me.
The rapping is not that good, and neither is the music, but the man puts together a good story! I like it!

hehe. A lot of people like the second one just as well, if not better. I prefer the first mainly because it seems to have more of the dance element to it...I know they are a merge of dance and rap, and the second to me just seems to have more of the rap focus. I do like the story-telling aspect, but it just doesn't do nearly as much for me. Nothing as stand out as 'turn the page,' 'don't mug yourself,' 'the irony of it all,' etc. 'Fit but you know it' is good, but still...

I listened to some of it in Borders and that's pretty much how I felt. I wasn't moved to get it but I'm still curious.

I loved 'Let's Push Things Forward'. I liked the stuff on Original Pirate Material alot, but i'm not so keen on A Grand Don't Come For Free (apart from that wonderful 'Fit But You Know It' vid ).

I'm more of a Goldie Lookin' Chain person.

I think Chris Martin sings on track 10 of the latest album.

The song about "drying your eyes mate because it's over"

not positive though but after a 1st listen I picked up the CD.
track 11 is even better.

i heard "let's push things forward" on kcsu in fort collins a couple years ago and picked up original pirate material on a whim...i loved it!! that intro on the first song is fantastic, it was so epic and i was hooked.

skip forward to this summer and nosing around at borders and saw they had a new disc out, picked this one up and loved it even more. as has already been mentioned, the man tells a heck of a story, and it is waaay better than us rap.

Mike Skinner was supposed to suck live, but I saw them two weeks back and the show was ace.

Chris was supposed to be on it, but convinced Mike not to release that version because his version was more poignant or something... I think. Or something.
