The bleedin' thing is in waltz time, for goodness sake.
Just a year since ‘Re-rewind’ introduced Craig David and – best of all – the things that go ‘boing!’ in the night, a grateful nation finds that Artful Dodger have gone all MJ Cole on us. They’re slick. Sophisticated. Adult. Pianos twinkle, violins are gently plucked… the bleedin’ thing is in waltz time, for goodness sake. In short, it’s a million miles away from the gauche teenage fizz of the Dodger’s most characteristic work. We all have to grow up sometime, of course. It’s just a shame that it’s come this, er, soon.
