i heard it really briefly -- i found it really interesting -- seems like something that needs to grow on you -- the beats were so uncnventional, that at first listen, i had a hard time "feeling" it.

I've had it a couple of months now, and I love it.

"The Irony Of It All"

Hello, Hello. My names Terry and I'm a law abider
There's nothing I like more than getting fired up on beer
And when the weekends here I to exercise my right to get paralytic and fight
Good bloke fairly
But I get well leery when geezers look at me funny
Bounce 'em round like bunnies
I'm likely to cause mischief
Good clean grief you must believe and I ain't no thief.
Law abiding and all, all legal.
And who cares about my liver when it feels good
Wwhat you need is some real manhood.
Rasher Rasher Barney and Kasha putting peoples backs up.
Public disorder, I'll give you public disorder.
I down eight pints and run all over the place
Spit in the face of an officer
See if that bothers you cause I never broke a law in my life
Someday I'm gonna settle down with a wife
Come on lads lets have another fight

Eh hello. My names Tim and I'm a criminal,
In the eyes of society I need to be in jail
For the choice of herbs I inhale.
This ain't no wholesale operation
Just a few eighths and some Playstations my's vocation
I pose a threat to the nation
And down the station the police hold no patients
Let's talk space and time
I like to get deep sometimes and think about Einstein
And Carl Young And old Kung Fu movies I like to see
Pass the hydrator please
Yeah I'm floating on thin air.
Going to Amsterdam in the New Year - top gear there
Cause I taker pride in my hobby
Home made bongs using my engineering degree
Dear Leaders, please legalise weed for these reasons.

Like I was saying to him.
I told him: "Top with me and you won't leave."
So I smacked him in the head and downed another Carling
Bada Bada Bing for the lad's night.
Mad fight, his face's a sad sight.
Vodka and Snake Bite.
Going on like a right geez, he's a twat,
Shouldn't have looked at me like that.
Anyway I'm an upstanding citizen
If a war came along I'd be on the front line with em.
Can't stand crime either them hooligans on heroin.
Drugs and criminals those thugs on the penny coloured will be the downfall of society
I've got all the anger pent up inside of me.

You know I don't see why I should be the criminal
How can something with no recorded fatalities be illegal
And how many deaths are there per year from alcohol
I just completed Gran Tourismo on the hardest setting
We pose no threat on my settee
Ooh the pizza's here will someone let him in please
"We didn't order chicken, Not a problem we'll pick it out
I doubt they meant to mess us about
After all we're all adults not louts."
As I was saying, we're friendly peaceful people
We're not the ones out there causing trouble.
We just sit in this hazy bubble with our quarters
Discussing how beautiful Gail Porter is.
MTV, BBC 2, Channel 4 is on until six in the morning.
Then at six in the morning the sun dawns and it's my bedtime.

Causing trouble, your stinking rabble
Boys saying I'm the lad who's spoiling it
You're on drugs it really bugs me when people try and tell me I'm a thug
Just for getting drunk
I like getting drunk
Cause I'm an upstanding citizen
If a war came along I'd be on the front line with em.

Now Terry you're repeating yourself
But that's okay drunk people can't help that.
A chemical reaction inside your brain causes you to forget what you're saying.

What. I know exactly what I'm saying
I'm perfectly sane
You stinking student lameo
Go get a job and stop robbing us of our taxes.

Err, well actually according to research
Government funding for further education pales in insignificance
When compared to how much they spend on repairing
Leery drunk people at the weekend
In casualty wards all over the land.

Why you cheeky little swine come here
I'm gonna batter you. Come here.

This album is crazy cool. I think a lot of people in America like him just because of those little British idiosyncracies like saying 'bloke' and 'geezer.' They're like, "that is just so funny, the way he talks and its like he's rapping kind of with an accent!" But his lyrics are really smart and witty, and his flow is really original.

I got the album after the first song was released in the UK.

I thought it was fantastic.

There are something’s...... as you listen to the track you just think yes that’s so true!
parts of what he was describing, just touched me, I’ve been there done that!
its so cool!
When i got it i thought, my mates are gonna love this, i played it to 5 people after the pub one night and after 2 tracks 4 of them were demanding i turn it off before they destroyed it!! They were claming none of it made any sense, a 4 year old can write better rhymes and the music is all to crappy.

They were only hearing it they weren’t listening. I have never heard another rap artist purvey such a detailed story in 4 minuets!
The mans a poet and as such is allowed poetic license. The story wouldn’t flow as well if every rhyme was perfect. the music isn’t the main focus, the words are he wants you to listen to and not to get caught up in a catchy tune!

My 5th friend thought it was wonderful and wanted me to lend it to him there and then so he could hear the rest.

My favorite song on the album is probably Weak Become Heros.

Sorry for that small rant!
"There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high - water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back." - Hunter S. Thompson.

Sure original, but good, even great? I don't know about that. There's nothing to warm up to. I think that with music and film you have to find some ground to relate with the artist, and I just can't see it at all. I can't see how anyone...I'm sorry it really boggles the mind how people are saying that he is something good to listen to.

Could someone explain the attraction to me?

I was in a store the other day and I actually saw a video for one of the songs. Probably the corniest video I have ever seen. But I guess it went with the song all right.

I must also chime in and say that I love Original Pirate Material.  I've owned it for quite a while now and I still listen to it a lot.  I'm very much so looking forward to the new album.

yeah i would say the new album's about as good as the first (pretty good), except that Blinded By the Lights and a few other tracks elevate it to Effing good.

the closest thing to Blinded by the Lights from Original Pirate Material is prolly Weak Become Heroes. so u should check em both out if u havn't.
