DISMEMBERMENT PLAN, THE: Change: CD

Perhaps their best yet. While retaining everything that separates them from every other band in existence, this record seems to move smoother than the others. That’s not to say this outing is entirely easy sailing, as they throw a wrench of chaos in the mix with songs like “Pay for the Piano.” But it works in the scheme of things. An atmospheric record that brings in many moods. From the (musically) upbeat opening track, “Sentimental Man,” to the urgency of “Secret Curse,” to the reflective “Automatic,” and on to the brilliant “The Other Side.”
