Never clicked with me I’m afraid. Somewhere between a 2 and a 3.

Really like some of the earlier stuff. Romeo is one of the more annoying collection of sounds ever curated - other than that, meh.

2, pedestrian.

Romeo reminds me of the best summer of my life so 5 for that alone

2/5. Some good hooks but the production is bland as fuck

Awful awful awful

Remedy is a good album, love a lot of the singles, outside of that not that bothered. A very solid 3 for some bangers.

They’re a 3 for me. Not overly familiar with their whole discography and I think I’ve only ever listened to Rooty as a complete album. That said, the big singles are a lot of fun, even if they’re songs I wouldn’t necessarily head to off my own back.

So yeah, a 3 feels right here.

Should have known DiS’s anti-pop mentality would extend to dance

3/5 for me too. A few decent singles

Never heard a full album, but some of the early singles are very good. It’s a 3 from me.

I’m taking my kids to seem them play in a park in Tunbridge Wells next weekend. The support act are Stereo MC’s.

4 from me. Remedy and Rooty are brilliant, that singles list is full of bangers and live they are just fucking brilliant fun.

If they’re anything like the couple of times I’ve seen them, you’ll have a great time weebs.

Fun!

There’s other stuff of this ilk that I probably enjoyed more at the time but they were fun at a time when I liked fun.
