  1. Lyrically lucid and sonically exciting. [11 Jun 2005, p.67]
  2. This is the finest debut hip-hop album I’ve seen since Aesop Rock’s.
  3. Home Sweet Home is refreshing and genuinely breathtaking.
  4. A great release from a great new talent, Kano has the words and the beats to deliver.
  5. 80
    Tough, yet with just enough tenderness. [Aug 2005, p.101]
  6. An ungainly compromise blessed with a handful of skyscraping sonic highlights.

    Album is sick... kano is raw... def runnin fings on the grime garage scene, looks like hes gonna make it to the full, i mean wiley's sick but he aint releasing debut's with hype n gettin top chart positions.... crazys dope but aint droppin hits... kano is sick n makin records hes my favourite 2 hit the scene.. a sick flow tracks like "Sign In Life" n "How We Living" are classics i pre-orded the album from uk record shop n havent stopped listenin 2 it since it came out... "Nite Nite" will be sick when its released early next month other tracks like "Nobody Dont Dance No More" "P's & Q's" "Reload It" "Mic Check" "Sometimes" "Brown Eyes" "9 to 5" f*** it i like the whole thing. With tracks like this he's really gettin into the mainstream. The Nite Nite video looks like it could be 50 cent on there, the album is flawless if you asked me kano's already made the jump from underground to mainstream and is already on the journey to stardom. I think once "Nite Nite" is released its no longer gonna be kano yeh thats the london emcee... its gona be oh yeh i seen that video on tv i peep'd his cd down the store hes sick int he..... definetly a 10 out of 10... peace1 Expand
