|5. Roots Manuva Dreamy Days (12" - )|
|If you havent yet heard all the hype surrounding this man; the many proclamations that hes the biggest thing to happen to rap in a long time, and the numerous plaudits surrounding his current album Run Come Save Me (from which this single is lifted), thenwhere have you been? |
Perhaps now is the time to dip your toe in the water and hear what all the fuss is about. Dreamy Days, a string and clavichord spectacular, is basic but brilliant with cuttingly honest lyrics and a cool unstrained vocal. The additional and oddly named track Fly Turd Fly shows Roots darker side, its a twisted, attitude-laden soiree that more than justifies all the hype.
