    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.

    In comparison to other mainstream British Hip-Hop/Urban, it's a masterpiece. In comparison to the international Hip-Hop/Urban genre, it's weak. It relies far too heavily on dance sounds, making it feel a little by-the-book (or should I say computer?).
    Still, with all it's flaws, it'll always remain an important British record. After far too long, it finally reintroduced the USA (and

    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 theDazzling debut album from Britain's next big thing! Lyrically its just awesome.

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.

    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

    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.

    While Tinie's obviously talented, I honestly can't hear what all the excitement is over. Sure something will get lost in translation, but even on mega hit Written in the Stars I'm just not catching any lyricism that stands out. Then again, maybe that's what makes Tinie so popular.

    The album is a good listen, but it isn't anything the world hasn't heard before.
