Planes Mistaken For Star


Abacus 034

Released on October 3, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

The story of PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS begins within the confines of a paltry Midwestern town in Illinois called Peoria. Peoria, only hours away from big city living in Chicago, was culture starved and nothing like the northern city by the lake. It was this very atmosphere that fueled the raw, somber and fervent songs that PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS would ultimately become so well known for. Formerly on the emo lighthouse Deep Elm and then landing on the fiercely independent No Idea, PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS have come a long way since those early day as they are now the cusp of releasing their Abacus debut Mercy. The band's appeal crosses genre divides, often shows have as many metal heads and hardcore fans as emo fans requesting material from early in the band's career. Produced by Matt Bayles (MASTODON, MINUS THE BEAR etc.), Mercy is another step forward in the progression of a band who challenges themselves along the path of life.

The first time I heard "Copper & Stars" (from their s/t debut), I had a musical revolution by getting into some "real" emo, and gained some new musical heroes as well. At the same time I had also bought Knife in the Marathon, and I loved it just as much. They were moving ahead, and weren't waiting on you to keep up. I got to Fuck with Fire... I was puzzled at first, because the production I thought was horrible at the time, but I came around. Fuck with Fire is my favorite planes album, lyrically speaking, by far.

Planes are one of those rare bands that take chances. They don't care if their new songs don't sound like their old songs. To put it short, PMFS got balls. I have liked every new planes mistaken for stars album more than the last one... up until this one. Not that it's bad; in fact, it rocks. The sound on the new one isn't too different from the sound on the last album, and I was expecting the unexpectable. It's not quite as good as Up In Them Guts, and a few of the songs are forgettable, but like I said, it rocks, and sonically speaking, it sounds great. New fans of PMFS should probably look elsewhere.

Continuation of brilliance by PMFS... the other review said it sounds like metal/nu metal?? I don't know about that... this is great Rock action by a band that progressively get better and better with every record. The guitar work on this is epic.

I never really heard this band until I streamed some of their songs off I liked what I heard so I ordered the CD. After listening to the whole record it occured to me that they have a hell of a lot more in common with a lot of metal and nu metal bands than they do with any sort of punk rock bands. Lots of similarities to Clutch, Down, Kyuss, Deftones, Stone Temple Pilots and Korn in my opinion. I'm actually into some of those bands so I was psyched by the record but it might be a surprise to someone that thinks they're getting some punk rock.
