  1. Timez Are Weird These Days is the perfect example of what London is capable of, snatching elements of popular music from across the decades to create a sound that's both nostalgic and refreshing.

    Timez Are Weird These Dayz feels like a welcome cool breeze in sweltering mid summer.

    Unlike the legends of BK past, London doesn't riff on drugs and housing projects, which in and of itself earns him a fair shot. He may be redefining what it means to be a rapper in the 21st century, but it wouldn't hurt if he practiced more rules of the game before changing it.

    As far as remix albums go, however, it's a very, very good one, and for London fans, that should be more than enough to warrant purchasing.

    On paper, everything about Timez Are Weird These Days lends itself to an ostentatious dose of elite, Hoxtonite posturing. But there's substance beneath the style, a welcome human quality to withstand the opulent demi-house compositions.

    There's just no contemporary precedent for music like this. And that might just be the best sign of all.

    Nothing, be it labels or names or even time itself, can hold Theophilus London back from making great music.

    The disc comes off as a finely crafted pop pastiche rather than an innovative breakthrough.

    Timez Are Hard These Days is low-culture pulp with an unrealistic sense of its own sophistication.

    By album's end, the anthems will have you romping well into the next decade.
