Gang Signs & Prayer is filled with fire beats and fire bars, as well as some effective flexing. There's also a excellent look into serious topics such as 100 Bags being dedicated to Stormzy's mother, Blinded By Your Grace using hymns and religion to steer away from the nasty side of society, and the dive into depression in album closer Lay Me Bare

The first disc comes with nice jazzy performances from Williams that remind me a bit of Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble, and he enhances the festive feel. The second disc is mainly cheesy adult contemporary material, along with a line about Justin Bieber merchandise in Happy Birthday Jesus Christ.

Seventeen Seconds marks a swift transition from punk rock to a more atmospheric, art rock sound, and it was an excellent transition for The Cure. While I didn't like it as much as Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, it still manages to convey a great sense of emotion and tension throughout, as well as coming complete with artistic fulfilment.
