Ms Dynamite: Judgement Days

Ian Watson, Yahoo! Music, October 2005

WHEN MS DYNAMITE'S debut album was dismissed by some critics in 2002 as "tiresome finger-wagging", it seemed the erstwhile Niomi McLean-Daley was getting a rough deal. The Mercury-prize winning A Little Deeper may have had some stern words to deliver with the likes of 'It Takes More' and 'Sick'N'Tired', but it was always with a lyrical bounce and a sense of confident, playful energy. After all, this was Ms Dy-Na-Mi-Tee-Hee, not Ms Dy-Na-Mi-Ho-Hum.
