BBC Review

...a record you can actually feel smug about playing to a Yank.

Ruth Jamieson 2006

Critics heralded New Flesh's last album, Understanding, as one of the few examples of homegrown Hip Hop that you could play to an American without blushing. Well, the group have gone one better this time. They've produced a record you can actually feel smug about playing to a Yank.

Universally Dirty's eclectic and bass heavy sound places them in the first division of UK stars (think Dizzee, M.I.A. and Roots Manuva) - making them more than worthy of international attention.

Picking out highlights is unnecessary;this grimey, flithy, garagey, dirty, druggy, danceable, dark, poppy thing is all good.And, just to ram home that it hails from the land of Branston Pickle, there's not one god-awful slow-jam.

Long live the New Flesh!
