Long out of print, this album was repressed and released on double vinyl on March 30th. Originally released in 2002, ‘Original Pirate Material’ remains one of the most influential albums of its generation, and bridged the gap between UK garage and grime. Featuring the breakthrough hit ‘Has It Come To This’ and era-defining anthems such as ‘Weak Become Heroes’ and ‘Let’s Push Things Forward’, it made Skinner a spokesman for a generation.

Dry your eyes mate
How was it influential? It pushed a subgenre that was pretty much entirely underground at that point to Radio 1 plays, high festival slots as well as being a vessel to drag up a bunch of other artists who were creating incredible music but being overlooked. The songwriting style influenced plenty of others. It's not his best album (that title belongs to A Grand Don't Come For Free, in my opinion) but it was certainly influential. Especially if you look at the Birmingham scene, most the rappers and garage artists who've emerged from there since cite The Streets for paving the way.

That said, not sure £21 is an amazing deal, pretty sure it'll come down pretty quickly and I don't think there's a rush to buy an album from 2002 that means waiting a month or so would be too difficult.
Great album. Listen to it from the begining to the end....the story that is told is awesome

Yeah, generally it's based on a consensus rather than just one person's opinion. There's no album that's universally loved, free entirely of critics, if the bar is that 100% of people must think it's an album you can go back to then there are no classic albums.

I prefer the stokes!

Not cheap enough, considering this is clearly - and ironically, given the name - a plagiarism of 'Original Pirate Material' by 'The Streets.'

Great album - will wait for it to be reduced to below £15 before investing in the vinyl
Groundbreaking album at the time but a bit pricey
Still have my CD.
People still buy vinyl?

Not really, the original 2002 version will set you back well over £100 now. Plus this is a double LP so hardly pricey.

It’s a great album but inevitably it will be reduced further - all these new pressings are produced in large volumes especially as he has a new album coming out so they are going after ‘new’ fans with this.

Think you are confusing this with A Grand Don’t Come For Free which is the ‘story’ concept album.

I am the polar opposite.

Love The Streets, still listen to all albums, unreleased tracks and remixes, been to see skinner live multiple times. I would go as far to say my favourite musical artist.

Each to their own.
The irony, homemade, pirated then sold to the masses, those k#obs who buy banksy stuff as well need their heads trepanning
I prefered them before R left!

No, dois stokes!


Ha Jesus, that made me laugh like a chimp. Superb.
Listening party 22-00 tonight with Tim and Mike on twitter
Calm it down boy, your head's getting blurred

Same here. There aren't many albums I can listen to from beginning to end, but I can do that with all of The Streets' offerings. I did a little wee when I heard take me as I am a couple of months ago
