Mike Skinner has made it, he’s a legit celebrity in UK and an established singer in the US too. This album is what it’s like to be famous and rich, both truth-telling and self-critical. I like his meaningful songs the most, the best and most moving for me is “Never Went to Church,” a musical letter to his dead father. Also solid are “When You Wasn’t Famous” for its revelation that Skinner is still awkward when he’s talking to a girl who isn’t wowed by his fame and the title track, which stands out for its discussion of the work and money it takes to be successful musician. Worth a listen, especially if you like other albums from The STREETS.
