Showing off more style changes we get the acoustic song Winterlude which leads into the almost disco influenced There’s Always Shrimp At The End Of The Rainbow. The latter is a rip roaring song that really has a dancey and upbeat feel to it. The album manages to go out on a very strong note with the song Metacognitive which is a bit all over the place, it feels like a journey told through sound.
The Planet You are a band I discovered (actually almost exactly a year ago) by hearing them live at an all day concert in New Jersey. When they started playing I was absolutely blown away by the tempo changes, the odd time signatures, atypical rhythms, and general style and class. I was also entranced by their stage presence. The band felt alive as if they were an extension of their music. The album does a great a job capturing their sound for you to hear. I still maintain they need to be experienced live to really get the true feeling but as far as reliving it at home this works.
The Planet You are ready to take on the world with their experimental, unusual, and generally divergent sound. They feel like a band that has come from another planet to share the ways of their rock music with us. I Too (Me Also) is full of delightfully weird and progressive songs to fill your ear holes with. With this album they have absolutely demonstrated that there is a still a lot of room for math rock.
