what a great soul album and quite a revelation indeed.
i'm hooked and have played this album over and over: it's very pure, very soulful, real music.
soul as it was meant to be by its pioneering father ray charles.
as such, this album is kind of a tribute to the real soul music of the ol' days, and it delivers.
what you will know are the songs 'she said' and 'prayin'' but make sure you check out the rest of the album as well.

I admit i have not heard anything of Plan B prior to this album, but going from this album i think the man is simply brilliant.

Every track on this album i would not skip, each song has a different tempo and sound which keeps every song unique and enjoyable enough to hear its whole duration. This man has a great voice, this is an album you can just sit back and simply enjoy!

This is an absolutely brilliant album! I Love the way that Plan B tells this extraordinary tale of Strickland Banks from track 1 right until track 13. GENIUS. Should definitely win best album this year at the Brits!

This is an amazing album! Ive listened to it so many times and it just doesnt get boring.
The mixture of rap and blues music makes it so much more interesting than other albums around which just churn out the same generic sound on each track.
Everyone should own this alum! its a beauty! :D

  Very Good

This album really impressed me. It's the first album I've bought in ages and I'm glad I got it. I've liked Plan B for a while now, both his old stuff and new, his got a good range of music, and it shows in this album.

It's a very soulful album with some strong lyrics, and he raps well on a lot of the songs too. I love 'Recluse' and a few others are my favs like 'Love Goes Down', 'Traded In My Cigarettes', 'Darkest Place', 'I Know A Song and 'What You Gonna Do'. I think I just named hald the album lol, it just shows the impact it has.

There's a few bonus tracks on there to enjoy as well, and overall it's just a solid entry into the music industry from Plan B. Well done fella, keep it up.

I highly recommend this if you like anything from pop to rap to soul to indie to rnb to hip hop. Plan B has pulled this off well...
