The Streets
The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living
Vice/Atlantic

"A great album about fame and its discontents ... turns the stock scenes of rock-star excess ... into tragicomic farce, in part by owning up to the tawdry banality of it all." (www.Slate.com)

"Has Skinner made one of those turgid, solipsistic albums bemoaning the shallowness of fame, the callousness of the press and the loneliness of the long-distance tour bus? Unfortunately, the answer is yes." (The Guardian)

"The Hardest Way ... is twice as good as any album about the price of celebrity has a right to be." (Observer Music Monthly)

"Plumps for confession over understanding, much like the contemporary celebrity culture it looks to confront ... In short, he's capable of far better than this." (Q)
