Plan B's breakthrough concept album is now available in the US. The Defamation of Strickland Banks drew widespread critical praise for its uncompromising lyricism and soulful musical approach. '(Plan B's) reinvention suits him,' wrote The Guardian. '(His voice) comes into its own here: a high, aching croon that adds an appealing touch of self-doubt to the hardest-hitting lyrics... In a neat touch, the bleaker Strickland Banks's story becomes, the lovelier the melodies.'
The album proved a breakthrough release for Plan B in both his native UK and around the world, hitting the Top 10 across Europe while also currently ascending the charts in Australia. In addition to critical and commercial success, the 2011 Brit Awards honored him with the Best British Male Solo Artist trophy earlier this year following his energetic performance.
