    The vocals are annoyingly stuffed-shirt at times, considering it's meant to be about 'da streets', but the music really is stunning. You definitely need it if you collect versions of WSS (as I, for my sins, kinda do). Possibly yet to find an absolutely definitive one end-to-end, but they usually have their high points, as this one certainly does in spades.
