Generation

Album Review

Released 31st October 2005

Kicking off with the bastardised version of Nancy Sinatra's excellent 'Shot You Down' featured in Tarantino's kung fu hit Kill Bill, Generation wont achieve the same success as Quentin's 4th and 5th.

That said there are some exciting songs here from the Southampton duo but these boys should stick to what they're good at, i.e. writing songs and not try to rap. The MCing consists of tired, lazy and repetitive rapping with little creative talent.

Roots Manuva features on track 8 Made Like That but even the razor sharp tongued Rodney Smith can't elevate this album into greatness.

Generation ends with a flourish of great tracks. Madness front man Suggs adds his smooth Camden touch on If This Road with a heartfelt ballad.

Final track Struck By the Sound continues the ska ambience with a low down dirty sax and quirky piano melody making you want to hit the rewind button.

The overall impression this album gives of the Audio Bullys is a couple of kids from the ghetto trying to atone for the errors of their ways and while Generation might not be quite make up for it there are still some great tracks here…
