    The stakes were so high, the pressure was on and what makes him interesting was ironed out in favour of low risk, high percentage choruses. Couple that with a mixed bag of lyrics from the rapper himself, and you get a curiously crafted mess that contains a few great songs that you'll end up loving, and lot of numbers that just weren't bold enough or executed with confidence.

    While reining in the triumphalism, Demonstration suffers from an overbearing sense of its own importance. [Jan 2014, p.97]

    [A] chaotic, unwieldy mess.

    Some of the fresh-faced charm has gone, but he is sounding more like a bona fide star.
  5. This feels like a wearisome exercise in reasserting his market appeal.
  6. 60
    There are enough decent moments to call Demonstration a success.
  7. To be clear, the good outweighs the bad here, but Tinie has lost a lot of the charm that, when he turns it on, makes him so appealing.
