UK BLACK MUSIC: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY
A friend brought this track/video to my attention last week.
As most of you will know, I pledge my allegiance to the US Hip Hop/R&B flag and rarely pay much attention to the UK scene ( I know I should be a shamed of myself … lol), so I’m a little late posting this new collaboration from former So Solid group members, Ashley Walters, Harvey and Romeo.
In my opinion this track sounds dated. It sounds like something So Solid would have released back in ‘2000/2001’ (in their heyday).
It’s almost as if they went back in to the vault, dusted off an old unreleased track and attempted to revamp it.
But in 2009 a track of this nature just sounds tired, weak and empty… at first. Then when you listen to it more than once, it starts to grow on you. The beat is actually quite catchy.
As for the video – Its standard UK fare! I say no more!
‘Excuse Me’ isn’t particularly good… it’s not particularly bad and its not ugly. I will therefore put it in to my ‘hmmmm… so so’ file.
Your thoughts please….
