ill Manors (Music From And Inspired By The Original Motion Picture) (Bonus Tracks, Explicit)
by Plan B
Released: Jul 2012
Label: Atlantic Records
With his soundtrack to his directorial debut, the film Ill Manors, Ben "Plan B" Drew is evolving into one of the best dramatists of U.K. urban life since The Streets. But whereas The Streets' Mike Skinner was irrepressibly funny, Plan B allows just a sliver of optimism into his grimy kitchen-sink tales. Ill Manors packs a hard punch: "I Am the Narrator" sets the stage for a dystopia of hellish conditions, and "Great Day for a Murder" is a frightening tale of a child forced to commit homicide. The deluxe edition includes moody instrumental snippets from the movie and a bonus song, "Michelle."
