BBC Review A furious and intense album that, in small doses, does nothing but impress.Leonie Cooper 2010Essex has been getting a bad rap for years. Currently doing nothing for the county reputation is the admittedly hilarious semi reality sitcom The Only Way Is Essex, perpetuating the myth that the notorious neighbourhood is populated entirely by flashy fellas and perma tanned princesses and where a low IQ is almost as highly regarded as a personalised car number plate.Twenty two year old Dagenham born Devlin is here to change all that.

Talk about it somewhere else, don’t bring it into the news bulletins..
This trend can in large part be attributed to many of today’s reality based television shows, which seem to be a perfect match for product integration.
