This feels somewhat like a Grime revival with a lot of tracks having heavy bass and hard hitting bars. Every record is shipped in original factory-applied shrink wrap and has never been touched by human hands. The topic is explored by a series of internationally acclaimed mixed discipline artists, that intends to challenge and inspire the audience whilst celebrating the makers involved. I like how the first verse on "Animal Instinct" went on for so long I was rapidly anticipating for the Chorus to come in.

Skepta manages to expertly navigate 13 tracks with diversity, precision and flair, bringing together both old and new to produce an album that continues to see him push the boundaries and raise the levels in a way that only Skepta could.

stars out of 5 -- "The Tottenham rapper's comeback is a diverse-sounding, assured success, a muscular record that conveys global ambition, drawing on a dizzying collection of sounds and influences. Ignorance Is Bliss is the Boy Better Know mogul’s first full-length to drop since his ascendence into the upper echelons of the cultural sphere, and with all eyes on him he’s pulled out the stops on this one. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Released by Boys Better Know, Ignorance Is Bliss features appearances from Nafe Smallz, Key, J Hus, Lancey Foux, Lay Z, Wizkid, and Cheb Rabi. The fact that Skepta produced just about all of the tracks on here says a lot about how Grime has never really left him. Lead singles Bullet from a Gun and Greaze Mode (with Nafe Smallz) are already streaming on digital platforms.

Whereas he was once an underground hero railing against anti-grime sentiments and the misunderstanding of his art, he's now an international star with a string of guest spots on gargantuan US hip-hop hits to his name. Standouts include Bullet From A Gun, produced by both Skepta and Ragz Originale and is a focused and reflective track that shows the depth of the grime kingpin's lyricism while Greaze Mode - featuring Luton vocalist Nafe Smallz - is a hard-hitting banger with a turn-up mentality. The beats on 1 or 2 of the others sound too much like the drill type rubbish which only the teenage generation listen to which is ruining the Grime scene just like Mumble Rap has done to original Rap in America which Eminem and others have been complaining about. These shows include a headline appearance at this year’s Field Day Festival (7th June) which takes places at London’s Meridan Water – a stones through from the Meridian Estate where Skepta grew up – and is set to be a huge homecoming show.
