Plan B-Who Needs Actions When You Got Words

Seeing as I've never wrote an album review in my time here I felt that now should be the time. After wondering whether to do a Muse album review or a Plan B album review, Plan B won (because I don't feel like I could do the Muse album justice.)

After his rather strange performance at the NME awards a lot of buzz has surrounded this 'pioneer or Grindie'. Has the album lived up to the hype? Well, considering the hype called him the 'hip hop Arctic Monkeys' I can confidently say no. Plan B is nothing like the Arctic Monkeys. He is nothing like no-one. Mixing basic yet powerful guitar backgrounds with twisted and dark Rapping doesn't sound like a match made in heaven, and why should it? This is a match made in hell, and Plan B knows it.
Taking freedom of speech to another level he goes against the grain of what has been done before him. In 'Sick 2 Def' he talks of how films like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction and even the Ken Bigley murder inspires him to be violent, and in the opening track 'Kidz' he goes through the same 'I had a bad childhood, me' routine but all done with such an honesty and lyrical sharpness that you will forget that nearly every song on this album has been touched upon by so many rappers previous to him. He's unoriginal in his mentallity but extremely original in his delivery.
In 'I Don't Hate You' he raps about his religious nut of a Dad. His level of truth to himself is akin to Morrisey (don't worry, he's nothing like Morrisey) and listening to the song actually makes you put yourself in the role of a Psychologist. You start to see that the way Plan B is is all because of his overly religious Dad. Then you start to see the immaturity behind the seemingly overly mature exterior.
Sure, there are some shock tactics in there. The album cover sums up the image Plan B wants from his listeners, and he tries too hard to maintain his dark persona. He's arrogant, he's got a saddeningly annoying voice, he's criminally self obsessed and he doesn't have the charm that makes people such as Mike Skinner so listenable.
But as a lyricist, which is all he promotes himself to be, he is bloody good.
