    Ska, country and 80s hip-hop are the cute soundbed for quickfire lyrics that reveal them to be typical teenage boys.

    All things considered, this is an impressive debut album from Rizzle Kicks.

    By bypassing the commonplace put-downs of peers and proffering a very British take on pop-flavoured rap, is an accomplished and infectious introduction to some rightly rising talents.

    A contemporary-pop triumph.

    Rizzle Kicks are a pop prospect with a winning charm you just can't teach. [Dec. 2011 p. 137]

    They tag-team across the record with a cheery glint, a self-deprecating wink and a boundless charm that's hard not to like.

    Fun while it lasts, but swiftly forgettable.

    Brilliant debut album with no weak links. Every song is extremely catchy with good lyrics and music from the start of the album to the end. Excited to see what else they can come up with. Expand

    What a début album! Nearly ever song is perfect and the album is varied which is great. The two artists just work to well off each other and give a new Indie-Rap genre to the masses. Very popular where i'm from and you will hear their songs at every party! Expand

    Stereo Typical blends reggae, ska & hip hop and makes it a very good combination.
    From the amazing opener "Dreamers" to the amazing
    "Traveller's Chant", Stereo Typical gives Indie-Rap a good name. Expand

    While Rizzle Kicks don't put to use any particular hooks or gimmicks, that seems to be what makes then so refreshing. Along with irreverent, but charming, lyrics and a humble, but catchy, production, they manage to intrigue the listener and open them up to a brand new style of alternative hip hop. Expand
