Customer Reviews


This is the next big thing in the australian hip hop family. Got some very catchy tunes in this one, expect illy to be BIG. Best songs definitely include 'Generation Y', "Full Tank', "Long Story Short' and "Our Country'.

Good album but the sound quality is appalling. Don't buy on itunes.

No problems with the album itself but the quality is terrible on the title track. Itunes allowed me to download it again for free but it was exactly the same as the 1st download. Sounds like a cd that's been rolling around under your car seat for 6 months. Try and track it down in a cd shop instead.

Aussie Hip Hops blowin up!

In my opinion this album is one of the best aussie releases this year , the flow, beats and subject matter on "long story short" shows that illy is a mature, talented and seasoned mc, and if this is just his debut album than were in for an awesome ride. Sure to become an aussie classic GO OUT AND BUY IT!!!
