EDITORS’ NOTES

Anyone who checks out Ill Manors on the strength of its predecessor, The Defamation of Strickland Banks, will be shocked. Gone is Plan B’s soulful croon; in its place is a brutal hip-hop record about the demonization of the British working class. The title track explores the roots of the 2011 London riots, while Ben Drew’s fictitious scenarios document trafficked sex workers, racist foster homes, and the way poverty ruins lives. It’s a hardcore listen that takes added gravitas from its orchestral soundtrack.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Ground breaking

I've been waiting for this album to drop in the states for a while now, and I've got to say I'm beyond satisfied with it. Plan B puts his heart and soul into everything he creates, you can tell. I wish there were more artists like him in our society. Hopefully the American mainstream music scene will progress to this level soon. Fantastic work, Plan B.

It's worth buying just for Ill Manors.

I love this guy. Glad I saw that he was nominated for a the Mercury Prize otherwise I might have missed this.

BUY this album. Plan B is a genius, he knows how to mix rap and contemporary music like no one.
The album is touching, revolting and makes you think.

Good as "Defamation"!!!
