Like Suede, the Streets made a revolutionary first album, an astonishing second and a really fun third - and then two clunkers. Like Suede, the story of what was going on in the background of those last two albums is a lot more interesting than listening to the bastards again. This isn't the sort of artist memoir where you necessarily come away wanting to be friends with the star - the constant self-examination would be a nightmare - but Skinner still confirms the impression he always gave of being a smart, funny and basically decent fellow. Also, he compares John Gray to 50 Cent, and you don't see that too often.
