I'm listening to The Streets
The new streets album has a rough, minimalist sound, that I'm not sure is really working. Or rather, it works some of the time and it certainly sounds super British, but it hasn't quite got the appeal or variety of the first album.

my sentiments excactly, the forst album was really excellent, this is more of a concept album; fun to hear from end to end, but not containing any hits that stand out.
'round here we call 'em birds not bitches.
It is the minimalist sound that makes it grow on you. First time i heard it, it was like - is that all ?!??! boring.
But then it began, growing, and now i almost hear it everyday.
Its like when jungle was jungle and not drum'n'bass.
Love it for what it is, and not for the hit appeal.
