Jamie T - 'Trick'

8/10

When Jamie T returned in 2014 after a five-year break to release his third studio album 'Carry On The Grudge', the record was met with a mixed response. Jamie's change in direction and lack of expected swagger felt like he wasn't the same person we had once known. Opting for a more simple sound, the album never really made the impact it should have. But now just two years on, the man is back once again with 'Trick', an album that we can all get behind.

While we can probably accept that the lager-drinking lout he portrayed on his first two records is gone for good, the passion and vigour that was missing from 'Carry On The Grudge' is back with full force on 'Trick'. Opening up with the anthemic 'Tinfoil Boy', the album quickly unveils the cheeky sod we know and love, but with a far more mature twist to it. He once again indulges us in his irreverent side and delivers a truly great return to form this time around.

Fans of the old Jamie T will certainly enjoy this new album more than the last. Back are the big productions, colourful language and white-boy rapping, but with an overarching sense that he is back in his comfort zone yet still managing to push his sound in a new direction.
