Pitchfork Reviews The Streets

Pitchfork Reviews The Streets: and what do I think of that? I think they do a good job, from an admittedly transatlantic perspective. After all, Original Pirate Material IS a UK hip-hop album, as much as it is a “UK garage” or “electronica” (or “post-punk”) album. Skinner’s one of the more idiosyncratic MCs on the British Block, sure, and a more informed reviewer might have twigged that the sounds Skinner uses – two-step, reggae, etc. – mark the record as ‘UK’ as much as the vocals do. But as an American review for an American audience, this is fair enough.
