The Plan - This Time is Not the Place

The Plan - This Time is Not The Place (2000)

The Plan. Well, I am definitely on a Canadian kick. They hail from Halifax, but don't let that discourage you. These guys kick some serious ass. This 40 minutes of music is some of the most intense, cohesive music I have heard lately. Many reviews I have read have labeled these guys as math rock. While I surely see the comparison, I wouldn't be so quick to pigeonhole them into one category. One second it's intricate guitar work, the next it is blazing punk rock. The dual vocals aren't overwhelming like some bands in this genre. They alternate between singing and screaming, but never , ever lose their intensity and ferociousness. Please download this, you should enjoy it. And once again...artwork sucks. any help would be appreciated.

i bought this disc when it was released (knowing nothing about The Plan) because compared to Shudder To Think.

i think they're a bit close to Fugazi in sonic approach & vocals for sure, but i'm glad i still have it now in 2009 (actually tried to sell it on eBay twice w/ no luck)

did they do anything after this CD? i'm tempted to google the band members & etc to see what's current...

your blog is great, keep on.

would it be possible to repost the link for this? I've been looking for this album everywhere, from the littlest indie-label sporting record store in my town to every blog that has the word "plan" in it, and you're the only one to have the actual album available for download. But the link isn't working! Mediafire is saying you removed it.

It'd be much appreciated!
