    The album has a great song and some really catchy songs like Boom Blast and Daiquiris and then gives you a chill out factor with Only Human. The fact Wiley doesn't bring in backing vocals form females in order to get some sales brings a refreshing wave to me as many rappers and other artists seem to do that and its all about mainstream music. Great mix of songs and a big improvement onThe album has a great song and some really catchy songs like Boom Blast and Daiquiris and then gives you a chill out factor with Only Human.

    This album may not appeal to some (especially those heads looking strictly for lyricism and weighty content). However, fans of both grime and dubstep will undoubtedly enjoy this offering, and most notably: Wiley's evolution.

    Evolve or be Extinct succeeds as both a collection of songs for public use--dancing, drinking, celebrating Christmas, protesting customs officials--and as a complex portrait of the artist who's sacrificed his sleep and sanity to create them.

    For all the banging beauty in its beats, Evolve or Be Extinct is too forced and uncomfortable, as though he figured he'd evolve if he just over-thought it enough.
