London Calling.

This kind of thing has been done before so many times and so much better. Singing about old 'Lahndahn' town's 'real life' happenings like having your license taken away by 'the filth', old ladies with bags full of shopping from Tesco and crack whores, when you've designed your own trainers for Nike smacks of pretension or a cynical money making scam...or both.

The tune sounds like the song from the end of Beetlejuice "Jump In Line" by Harry Belafonte; some kind of faux reggae thing. The lyrics are spectacularly uninsightful: "When you look with your eyes everything looks nice, but when you look twice you can see it's all lies", yeah...most of us already know what it's like to live in a city driven by commercial gain and with people living on the streets and this lame dumbing down doesn't say anything new or thought provoking. If you like 'real' you're better off listening to Lady Sovereign instead; at least she injects some humour into her music.
