    Throughout, chunks of ska and pop ensure an absurdly cheerful atmosphere. [Oct 2013, p.110]
  2. 80
    Through 14 tracks, Jordan and Harley offer a fast-talking, witty and well-meaning account of day-to-day life for sharp-eyed British youth.
  3. Sep 18, 2013
    Great things happen all over The Roaring 20s, an album where the cool kids become the smart kids while losing none of their baller status.
  4. 60
    It's dumb (how's "I love beer, I love rhymes, I love sex" for nuance?), but it's hard not to love a musician who puts their mum on a track (props Mrs Stephens on Lunatic).
  5. Rizzle Kicks are best when brisk and larky--more heartfelt musings on love and being true to yourself are banal.
  6. Uncut
    Aug 30, 2013
    Roaring 20s provides cod-reggae backing for Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule to discuss the impact of social media and the nature of fame. [Oct 2013, p.74]
  7. Sep 5, 2013
    At its best, Roaring 20s is clumsy and awkward. At its worst, it’s hectoring and condescending.
