The Streets (Mike Skinner) has done some great stuff over the years, but nothing has ever quite matched his debut album, Original Pirate Material. Ironically this is also his least famous work. It does a great job demonstrating his musical diversity; "Weak Become Heroes" builds an artistic tension with the "same piano loops, over and over," while "Sharp Darts" showcases Skinner's ability to lay down a funky urban beat.
