iTunes Editors’ Notes

イースト・ロンドンを中心に広がる UKグライム・シーンの創始者、Wiley のソロ・アルバム。Ninja Tune 傘下の Big Dada からのリリース。Dizzee Rascal も彼の影響下にあるという大物だけに、貫禄あふれるトラックとMCのコンビネーションを見せてくれる。アクの強い声質でたたみかけるように押してくるラップ・スタイルでハードなリリックを繰り出し、バンピンなビートがそれを支える。アンダーグラウンド・ミュージックとしてのグライムの魅力を存分に感じさせる。アルバムはオープニング・トラックの “50/50” から Wiley ワールド全開。Merkston、Scorcher、Tinie Tempah をフィーチャーした “Flyboy”、Jukie Mundo を迎えた “Stars”、Manga と Little D を起用した “My Mistakes” など客演トラックも華やかで、さすがシーンの顔役と言うべき完成度を誇っている。英国地下音楽の最深部から立ち上るスモーキーなバイブを存分に味わえる一作だ。
