  1. It’s hard to imagine what the Plan could do to top Change, but one thing is for sure: growing up and looking forward has rarely sounded so universally satisfying.
  2. Showcases a band testing themselves by going down an untravelled road while still maintaining their identity.
  3. With Change... The Dismemberment Plan feel little need to show off with self-conscious musical ostentation and excess, instead choosing to focus themselves on making a fantastic, understated and involving record.
  4. Change, while unquestionably more mature than anything the Dismemberment Plan have released in the past, is also, at times, an incredibly powerful record that can make mundane ruminations seem like Socratic philosophy.

    Wow. This one is a keeper. It's very different from their previous masterpiece "Emergency & I" but I still give it a 10 out of 10. It has interesting beats, beautiful lyrics, and catchy chords. It is a lot more calm that any other Dismemberment Plan album. The best tracks are "Superpowers", "Secret Curse", "Following Through", "Time Bomb", and "The Other Side". Don't hesitate to listen/buy this album. It will blow you away. Full Review »
