Streets – A Grand Don’t Come For Free

If you haven’t bought this album yet, go do so at the speed of light. Yes, it’s hyped. Yes, it’s hip hop. But this album manages to pack everything good about music in the span of less than an hour. It is funny, emotional, soaring, well orchestrated storytelling, cinematic and lifesliced.

The lyrics span a range of subjects, and each of them is recognizable. It’s been a while since I heard a song as sexy as Might Well Be In or as gut-wrenching as Dry Your Eyes. He out-Blurs Blur on Fit But You Know It, and pretty much every song is a stand out. The album flows nicely, and makes me realize the plain and simple truth : there is nothing wrong with me for not liking lots of hip hop music. It’s just that much of it is crap, while it could be as utterly brilliant as the Streets’ new album.

Run – don’t walk.
