    Labrinth avoids the most obvious pitfall--he can actually sing--but writing words seems to flummox him.

    This debut from Tinie Tempah producer Labrinth sits comfortably in the Kanye West school of autotuned mid-youth crisis, yet this album isn't without merit.

    Ultimately, however, despite the fizzing electronic undercarriage applied to most tracks on Electronic Earth, Labrinth's real forte may turn out to be the more traditional, earthbound musical skills.

    Labrinth may work wonders in the background, but he's far too anonymous on Electronic Earth to mark his card as much of a solo star.

    Singing, producing and performing his own material, Labrinth has high ambitions but falls disappointingly short.

His voice is average at best and his lyrics are clunky throughout. The production (however non-electronic (Earth) it might be) on certain tracks saves it from being a total disaster. Full Review »

Labrinth displays his talent at various things; producing, singing, playing the guitar and even the piano, it's nice to see a relevant and popular mainstream artist with actual talent. The stand out song was definitely 'Climb on Board'. Full Review »
