Stereo Typical - Rizzle Kicks
Advantages: lots of great tracks
Disadvantages: none for me
Stereo Typical is the first ever album released by the British hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks and was brought to stores in October 2011.
This album is mostly hip hop/rap based and has a very fun and young feeling to it. The songs on this album are mostly just fun and easy to listen to.
The track listing for this album includes:
2. When I Was a Youngster
3. Round Up
4. Down With the Trumpets
5. Demolition Man
6. Prophet (Better Watch It)
7. Mama Do the Hump
8. Miss Cigarette
9. Traveller's Chant
10. Stop With the Chatter
13. Learn My Lesson
14. Even on a Rainy Day
When I Was a Youngster
This is a fun and funky about how when you were little, you wanted to be all different kinds of interesting and cool jobs and then as you grow older you lose the motivation and want to do different, easier to obtain jobs. This song also touches on how happy Rizzle Kicks are to be making music and following their dreams. This song is really easy listening and has a really cool vibe to it.
Down With the Trumpets
This was one of the first songs released off this album and it immediately caught my attention, this song is just about having fun and dancing and partying. This song has a really cool beat to it and flows quite well. It is a really confident and cocky song and has a really fun feeling to it.
Mama Do the Hump
This is a fast paced song with a lot of energy to it, it is about going out and dancing and having fun. I really like this song because it has such a happy and care free vibe to it.
This song is about being addicted to cigarettes, though they talk about the cigarettes like they are woman. This song uses a lot of clever word plays to show the similarities of between women and cigarettes. This song is slower and has a really chilled vibe to it which makes it very easy listening.
The Rest of the Album
I really love this album, it has a cool and funky feeling to it and I really like how the background music sounds on it as they use a good variety of different instruments throughout the album which gives each song a slightly different feeling to it. I love rap music and find the Rizzle Kicks duo very easy to listen to, they have a really fun and modern feeling about them. I can honestly say that there isn't a song on this album that I dislike, I have found that since I bought this album a few months ago that I have listened to it quite a lot and never really feel the need to skip any of the tracks.
Price and Availability
You can buy Stereo Typical in HMV for £7, I think this is a great price for this album of this quality. I think you can also get this album cheaper online if you shopped around. I am glad that I bought this album as I got a lot of listening from it so far.
Overall I think that if you like energetic, modern, hip hop style music, that you will enjoy this album. I really enjoy listening to it and have no criticisms about any of the tracks on it. This is one of my favourite albums at the moment and it has been on, on repeat in my car for the last month or so. Overall I would give this album 5 out of 5 stars.
