Good

ProFour or five excellent funky sounding numbers

ConsLyrically Immature, Voice thin in places

Poor record sales as a rapper? What's plan B? - Try Soul instead Since Amy Winehouse wowed the nation with her refreshing and soulful take on the classic Motown sound, many artists have jumped on the 60's bandwagon with their own old-skool vibe. The latest artist to utilise this particular sound...

ProLyrics, melodies, strong vocals, raps, production ...

ConsSome may accuse Plan B of selling out.

A few years back you couldn’t move for British female singers going back, quite literally, to the sixties, for inspiration. Amy Winehouse led the way with “Back to Black”, but Duffy and Adele weren’t far behind her, with Pixie Lott and Paloma Faith leaving things a little longer. The whole blue...

ProA thoroughly superb album.

ConsI could have done without some of the rapping.

Now, I went through a big rap phrase in my early teens, like most kids my age did back then. However,as I've gotten older, it's not something that usually floats my boat anymore bar the odd exception. I completely missed Plan B's debut album Who Needs Actions When You Got Words back in 2006, but...

“Scrap Plan A, Go for Plan B”

published 09/05/2010

ProAwesome range,

ConsMight be too much of a change

**Introduction** Although I had heard a little of Plan B I was not really all that aware of him and his music until I was listening to Spotify and an advert came up about his latest album "The Defamation Of Strickland Banks". My mate was a fan and made it known that he loved the new track "She...

I downloaded this album yesterday as I have a current obsession with Plan B! (aka Ben Drew.) I first heard him featured on Chase & Status's song 'Pieces', which I loved; he also played a part in the film Adulthood which I had seen before without realising :( (Im now going to rewatch it)...

ConsExplicit lyrics not good when kids in vicinity

Until recently, I didn't know much about Plan B, and I bought the album on the strength of the last single 'stay too long'. It only cost £6.99, and has turned out to be well worth it. The album chronicles the tale of Strickland Banks, who after some mild misdemeanours and infidelity finds himself...

“Plan B = Excellent”

Consi cant think of any

Plan B has created a all new type of genre, a great voiced singer that can hit the high notes but also rap at a top level, his album is a mixture of pop and rap mixed together, the hard man attituded is dumbed down with songs like 'Love goes down' were he tells a story of a girl and his love, Ben...

ProBen drew's voice is very much suited to this style...

ConsThe songs could use a bit more rap.

Ben drew, or plan b, was first on the scene as a British grime artist, so how has he done so well in the UK charts with something so diverse? What many people don't know about plan b is that he has always utilised his singing. His first album was a grime album but with a USP of a British artist...

“Sounds like a Plan!”

published 06/09/2012

ProThe man with the plan!

ConsNone, it's all good in the hood.

When East London rapper Ben Drew first burst on to the scene in 2006 with his debut album Who Needs Action When You Got Words, few people could have predicted what was to come. The album charted at a modest number 30 in the UK album charts and despite positive reviews from most critics the...

“Something a bit different”

published 17/06/2011

ProQuality and consistency of tracks is incredible

ConsWould love even more tracks, but wouldn't want to ...

From track one through to track thirteen, this album tells an excellent fictional story of Plan B's alter-ego Strickland Banks. A singer himself, Banks leads the classic popstar lifestyle of copious amounts of alcohol, drugs and women. With his relationship in trouble (Tracks 1 and 2) Banks has...
