People in Planes’s second major label album “Beyond The Horizon” drops today. Sean Conover over (can I use “over” over and over again?) at The Trades was kind enough to write a review of the album. Don’t worry, I’ll get the next one. People in Planes rocks so much. I love them. That’s why we here at The Perv chose them as our Featured Band. Anyways, here are some pull-out thoughts for you:
- “From the first song to the last, singer Gareth Jones and his band mates ride the spectrum of nearly every possible rock sound, from alternative to pop to unplugged (“Flesh and Blood” could have easily been penned – and sang – by Cobain).”
- “There is an underlying rock theme to the whole album, but they won’t be easily labeled as ‘sounding like’ someone as a whole. This is a rather refreshing change of pace in today’s single-driven music economy – listeners need to hear this whole album to fully get a feel for People in Planes.”
- “…one of the few full rock albums that I’ve enjoyed from beginning to end in a long, long time. Every song is good, and the feeling isn’t diluted by the time the final track ends. This is probably due to the fact that People in Planes’ sound is so hard to categorize because there is a refreshing change of pace every few minutes. A fun album and definitely a group to keep an eye – and ear – on.”
