A more reserved take on their debut, New Plastic Ideas shows Unwound maturing only months after their noisy as all fuck debut. They still delve into noise quite often and have a punk rock vocal delivery reminiscent of Fugazi, but the overall approach feels almost Sonic Youth-esque. While it's not quite as good as their debut, it's still much more than solid. Or maybe it is better, I really don't know.
