News Round http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/newsid_4...000/4391069.stm Release date 29 March 2005 Style: Will Smith's back and this time he's angry. Grrrrrrrr! It seems poor old Will can't understand why he doesn't get respect from other rappers and some fans even though he sells loads of copies of his stuff. How many good tracks: Of the 17 we get in the UK, maybe 11 or 12. Top tracks: Switch is a cracking tune, top Will Smith party track that gets you wriggling to the marching band-style beat. Not sure there's a real need for TWO other versions of the same song on the album, although at least one of them is a bonus track. Mr Niceguy sees Will get lots of anger off his chest, but he stills sounds extremely well-mannered in his criticism of people who have said nasty things about him. Tell Me Why with Mary J Blige is a very impassioned track about wrongs and injustices of the world and how difficult it is to explain why they happen. Weakest track: Album opener Here He Comes is rubbish. Will making up his own words to the theme tune of the really old Spider-Man cartoon isn't big or clever. Not sure that Pump Ya Breaks works either, despite the presence of guest star Snoop Dogg. Scary Story, which kind of tells Will's rise to fame to one of his children is a bit too cute to be interesting. Hit or miss: Hit. It's refreshing to hear someone rapping in a slightly different style to bigger (and angrier) names like Eminem and 50 Cent. And there's no swearing on Lost And Found either, which means you won't feel so embarrased if your parents hear it.
