Label: Last Gang Entertainment Release date: 29/03/11 Link: Official Website I can't remember the last time I was so disappointed after an opening track. Dream of a Troubled Man starting so promisingly. Okay, so I wasn't sold on the voice or the lyrics, but the beat at the back and even the chorus gave me hope. 'New Kid' sounds like a track that should open an album. Maybe a touch long when the thing could have been done in little more than a minute, but I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't take long for that initial feeling to drop quicker than sami nasri in an opposition penalty area. The rest of the album sounds like it comes straight from the soundtrack on a Shaun Palmer's Snowboarding console game from ten years ago. There is nothing new or interesting here and his reference points from the past should probably be left exactly there. In the past. Song after song merges into one and even when he ventures slightly of his very well trodden path, like on the not awful 'Run Hide', that voice still manages to grate. He describes his sound as 'drunk crunk' I understand. I don't even know what that means, but it is enough to turn me off any music I see described as such in the future. By the way. Don't get me started on the arrogance of 'Reporters'. A track in which Andrew decides that reporters make up stories "want to talk about me, but don't know enough about me". I'm not pretending to be a subscriber to Heat, but I'm pretty sure Trouble Andrew isn't top of their celeb hit list. They don't know anything about you because being engaged to Santigold does not automatically propel you into the a-list, much as it sounds like you want it to you. Photobucket
