After a lot of thought I think this is the best, most well rounded hip hop album to come out of the UK. It's so unmistakably English in its content, musings on everyday life, and slang. Beats-wise it isn't just a pastiche of New York boom bap, but a really fresh blend of hip hop, dub and dancehall, yet somehow it feels difference from all of those. Plenty of low end and delay here.
What makes it more remarkable is that every track is produced by Manuva himself (as far as I know).

You may say Jehst, Chester P, or Skinnyman holds the crown for best lyricist out of the UKHH, but other than Rodney P there isn't another MC that can come close to the unique style and swagger Roots Manuva displays here.
It's all these elements combined that makes it something really special.
10/10 and a watershed moment for the UK rap scene.

The track listing seems well different between the record and the cd ? Where's Clockwork .…

Not sure who coined the term British Hip-Hop, and why they don't use English Hip-Hop instead, but what I like about this is that it isn't trying to sound American, and that the theme is unmistakably English. There's some decent tunes on here, "Strange Behaviour" is the most abiding tune, I also like "Movements", "Inna", "Fever" and "Motion 5000", but, whilst the lyrics are clever, conscious and witty, most of the other songs are fairly forgetful. However, if you interested in "British" hip-hop, then this is a must have.

awesome, the best british hip hop i`ve heard, he may not be the tightest rapper in the world, but he`s got a great message and would be a great poet. the way he plays himself down adds to the character, and the lack of swearing and americanisms highlight the areas in which british hip hop has been failing in for so long. some of the music behind is not upto the same high standard, but tracks like juggle tings proper and clockwork are rockin, as for the rendition of motion 5000, thats a true masterpiece. a shining light for british hip hop, shame he blew with the second album.
