A review by Preston’s College work experience student, Katie
‘Like Father, Like Son’ connects to people going through rough patches through rock and hip-hop infused music. The artists have clearly put their own experiences into this album; they sing in anger at the visions and thoughts that they have experienced, whilst also joking and ‘taking digs’ from each other occasionally.
The father and son bond in the album feels strong. Each takes turns to rap verses, sharing and encouraging others to speak up about mental health – the album contains several songs that speak about mental health and how each artist has experienced challenges throughout their lifetime. This alone, could encourage listeners to speak up about their own struggles, and should certainly help them to understand that they are not alone. The album is a great form of inspiration and I have no doubt that it will give confidence to others who are dealing with similar issues.
