A brilliant album of progressive pop.,
This review is from: Emergency and I (Audio CD)
The Dismemberment Plan's masterpiece, "Emergency and I" is, first and foremost, a stunningly good pop album. Lazily pidgeon-holed as merely purveyors of progressively-minded eno, the band really represented a sublimely succinct and revolutionary new stream of explosive pop.
"A Life of Possibilities," "You are Invited" and "Back and Forth" all demonstrate the Plan's exquisite musicanship, inventive (sometimes even to their detriment) production and witty, urbane, wonderfully delivered lyrics.
This is the best album of a great band. Recommended to anyone who considers themselves a fan of any kind of music.
Pop at its best.
