19. Jamie T - Kings and Queens (Virgin)

Picture 2 of 20

It has been two years since the emergence of Jamie T with his debut “Panic Prevention”. After such a delay, coupled with rumours of Mr Treays’ difficult mental state and persistent illness, the question was whether the man still had anything to say. As it turns out, the Wimbledon troubadour did indeed. “Kings and Queens” is an album which talks about the slump of the British national character as easy as knocking back behind Tescos. While it may have lacked the impact of his debut, “Kings and Queens” showed that Jamie Treays still knows how to tell an urban fairytale.
