Audio Bullys Generation
- Words: Daniel Siwek
- Label: Astralwerks
Audio Bullys‘ sophomore effort doesn‘t borrow a lick from The Streets, as has often been the charge. For starters, the Bullys are far more clubby ("Shot You Down" plays like a house version of Nancy Sinatra via Kill Bill), and their hooks tend toward the mod-sounding side ("Generation" invokes The Kinks and The Jam, never mind its embedded Who reference). By no means riveting, Generation still earns its keep with clever voiceovers interspersed among the beats; while there‘s no standout like "Ego War," the brash "Made Like That" features the mighty Roots Manuva, who lends credibility to the duo‘s soundsystem-hop. A mixed bag, sure, but at least there‘s more candy than rocks.
