    The astonishing thing is that on any other record, the two above low points [Snaps and Invincible] would be stand-out tracks. With Tinie, only the best will do.

    A sensational debut from the British rapper. Tempah's wit, imagery and rhythmic flow is offset by schoolboy humour and a tendency to build raps from non sequiturs.

    A serious album, with huge potential and no weak points, Disc-Overy is the coming of age UK hip hop has long needed but been too timid to reach for.

    The closer to hip-hop he gets, the better.

    The album is a good listen, but it isn't anything the world hasn't heard before.
  6. Turn a deaf ear to the Cowell-connected producer Labrinth's uninspired Brit-hop beats and instead concentrate on the surely intentional comedy of Tinie's "I've got so many clothes I keep some of them in my aunt's house" and "I've been to Southampton but I've never been to Scunthorpe" (both from number-one single "Pass Out").

    The consistent issue with Disc-Overy is the pairing of Tempah with people who fail to elevate him.

    Dazzling debut album from Britain's next big thing! Lyrically its just awesome. Since Tinie arrived on the scene with breakthrough debut single Pass Out he seemed destined for greatness. Pass Out is one of the lead trakcs but make no mistake there is plenty to be had here, its hard to find a bad song on this album. Written In The Stars is anthem and one of the best songs of 2010 (in the UK) and was the theme song for the WWE and theres a reason for that! Other top tunes include the sensational duet with Ellie Goulding, Wonderman, Invincible which features Kelly Rowland, Frisky with Labrinth, an epci collaboration with the Swedish House Mafia in Miama 2 Ibiza and a personal favourite Let Go as well as Simply Unstoppable as seen in Lucozade adverts minus Travis Barker. All in all Disc-Overy is a dynamite debut album from a man with a very big future. Mr Tempah is the future!!! Expand

    Amazing album, been listening to it for over 6 months and the songs still feel pretty fresh and haven't gotten old. If you are even remotely into the genre then you will be pleased. Expand

    This is one hell of a album. You just love the lyrics and the fell that Tinie Tempah brings to his tracks. I do not know much about the music industry or weather eveybody will think this is a good album, but I think it is great. Expand

    this album barely has hope. The only good songs are Pass Out, Till im gone & Illusion. Listening to this album makes me uninterested into Tinie He needs to step it up Expand
