So, are these Skinner's sincere reflections on his surroundings, an artistic statement he's proud of, or are they the result of a parodic persona he's assumed, with its requisite shroud of satire? Parody or not (and Skinner assures us he's sincere), The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living is barely worth hearing, aside from curiosity. Skinner's lyrics are striking and distinctive as before, but it's difficult to believe this is the same artist who confronted a stereotypical lager lout named Terry on a track from his first album, titled "The Irony of It Al.

3 years to make this work, or look a joke and be broke. Blag their lawyers like the con with a dog. And there'll be no more straight scores to drop and keep dropping. Settle my gross addictions with my net and come. Tell my mum over tea that my whole life's fucking up. We've got two fifty grand in the budget to go. Subtract five for club promo. Lose five for a good video and fifteen for a dud video, fuck that. It's the hardest way to make an easy living. The party stage is a bit nearer to delivery
