Dave’s Mercury winning debut album ‘Psychodrama’ felt like a true cultural moment. The Streatham wonder swept all before him, racing to the BRITs and crashing through the glass ceiling in the process. Removing himself from Twitter – ostensibly for football reasons – he started work on a follow up, but the prospect seemed uniquely challenging. After all, how do you eclipse such a potent, intricate, and emotionally insightful debut record?

‘We’re All Alone In This Together’ is the answer. A record that thrives on openness while refusing to lay down easy answers, it finds Dave asking tough questions, both of himself and the world around him. Sonically a step forwards from his debut, it feels simultaneously more diverse and yet more unified – held together by the intensity of Dave’s vision, and the singularity of his purpose.

‘Clash’ was a dominating opening gambit. The sound of Dave and Stormzy pushing each other to higher levels, it founds two South London mic warriors honing in on the art. It sets the tone for the album as a whole; ‘Psychodrama’ occupied a different world from Dave’s hit singles – ‘Funky Friday’ for instance’ – but its follow up attempts to grapple with the rapper in 360, moving from intricate, cellular, novelistic songwriting through to punchy, chart-ready immediacy.

A wonderful, inspired experience, Dave’s second album seems to pick up the listener and deposit them somewhere entirely new. He draws on the many splintered facets of UK rap – and other sonic traits besides – while somehow transcending them. Literate, wise, and emotionally devastating, ‘We’re All Alone In This Together’ places Dave at the absolute pinnacle of British music. An all-time great? We’re in absolutely no doubt.
