Introduction: This album has some nostalgia to it. It was the first hip-hop/rap album I had actually ever given a listen, and I was surprised that this genre which I had always made fun of, could have such a gem hidden in it.

1. Intro
Just a small intro track
Rating: [N/A]

2. Liverpool
An alright track, but nothing special.
Rating: 4.5/10

3. Clones
One of the best tracks on this album, from its biting social commentary, to its smooth beat and samples, this track is fantastic, and you should give it a listen.
Rating: 9/10

4. Oh! What a Glorious Thing
A solid track, which lies somewhere in between Hip-Hop and Pop.
7.8/10

5. Love
An okay track, but with a nice hook.
Rating: 6/10

6. Bankers
With its strong social commentary, nice hook, and smooth beats, you would expect a better track. This track is good, but not as good as it should be.
Rating: 7/10

7. Thanks For All The AIDS
With biting commentary against people he views as saying they're going to help, but then don't, this track is fantastic. One of the standouts.
Rating: 9.5/10

8. London
An alright track.
Rating: 7.5/10

9. Back in the Day
Strong hook/chorus, a track that is about nostalgia and hits all of the feelings of it well.
Rating: 8/10

10. 1234567
This track is the biggest standout to me. With scathing commentary against the Catholic Church, and religion in general, smooth beats, and one of the best hooks you'll ever hear, you HAVE to listen to this track.
Rating: 9.7/10

11. Dead Babies
Deep message, but the music itself has trouble deciding whether its dark or just boring.
Rating: 3.7/10

12. Hypocrite
The first time I heard this song, I hear the radio edit. They're both great versions, but the album version just isn't as full of energy as the radio edit.
Rating: 7/10
Rating (radio edit): 8.5/10

Overall, a great album.

(NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS INCOMPLETE, I WILL FINISH IT WHEN I HAVE TIME.

Probably not, you might like some of the stuff on his second album because it has more guitar and stuff.

You might wanna check out "We Won't be Broke Forever".
