The Defamation of Strickland Banks, Plan B
I loved this album. It had such a great mixture of up beat tracks and sad slow tracks and rapping and singing. It was a bit of everything.
Some of the tracks tell a story of a crime and going to jail, but I won’t ruin the end. I thought this was a great way to tell a story. Who else does that? It’s a really special extra which you would only get with this album.
Some of the songs in the album have sad lyrics to a happy bouncy beat. And some of them have happy lyrics to a sad beat. I really enjoyed this and thought it was a great characteristic of the album.
My favourite tracks on this album were Prayin and What You Gonna Do. Mainly because they were so different to most songs. Prayin had great lyrics and a great beat which I really enjoyed as I listened. It was really different from the other tracks on this album aswell which made it stand out to me. I also really liked What You Gonna Do because I could relate to the lyrics and it was my kind of music and beat. Something I could really nod my head to.
I think the people who would like this album are people who enjoy a range of music but more of the people who enjoy sad, rapping and relate-able lyric songs.
Plan B or his real name Ben Drew has an amazingly soft singing voice and a strong rapping voice, you would never think that he was the same person if you were just listening. You would think there was 2 people. Just a quick little note about Plan B – He uses the name Plan B because his first plan was to be a pop singer then he found R&B and Rap and went into a career doing R&b and Rap. That was his plan B. He also, directs and acts in all his own music videos.
But I really loved listening to this album. It made me feel emotions. I am right now listening to Prayin. I can’t get it out of my head. It’s so catchy. I would really encourage people to by this album.
