Blip on a Screen

More from The Streets’ Computers and Blues (I’m going to end up putting the whole album on here if I’m not careful), and this one will strike a chord with currently expectant fathers (you know who you are) (I hope, anyway) and all those of us who have been there and done that. It’s a nervous and exciting journey.


And once again, the observations of Mike Skinner are spot on, deadly accurate. The hopes, the fears, the sudden overwhelming responsibility, the enforced introspection, the overriding uncertainty of the situation and the mammoth task that lies ahead – all bundled up in 3½ minutes of beats and poetry. Brilliant.

Early days, sure, but Computers and Blues is shaping up to be a strong contender for my album of the year. It’s certainly going to take some beating.

  1. I took me some time to sink into the style (porn groove rap?), but once I got to understand (a little pieces) the eclectic mixture of poetry, tunes, ambient sound and the British accent it grew rapidly. I share your sentiment on “album of year”. Thanks for the initial suggestion – I’m also getting stuck into “Original Pirate Material” this weekend.
