Review Summary: This album showcases a new sound and one that they could master in time.

Is it just me or has every so called metalcore band from the past 10 years just turned into heavier alternative rock bands after their first few records.

Anyways here’s another example of a chugging style metalcore band that has lost all interested in producing anything that resembles metal. Ironically Landon Tewers (guitarist of Before Their Eyes at the time) started The Plot In You as a side project to make “heavy music” in his words and look at where we’re at now.

I like this album more than I like to admit. We can see Landon’s unique songwriting and wild creativity in his solo album Dynamite (if you haven’t listened to it please do) but with his band I think he’s too afraid to try different compositions than what The Plot In You fans are use to and in return too much of the bands music is plagued by predictably. Yes, the band is shifting genres but ultimately a lot of the tracks on Dispose end up being just nice melodies with familiar structure and his lyrics while not bad are just extremely generic and forgettable. At least I remember the bad lyrics from Dynamite.

I find Landon’s voice impeccable. His highs come in at just the right time on each track and sound phenomenal in combination with his rough sounding lows and mids. The production is tight and brings all the instrumentation together quite nicely. Disposable Fix is by far the best track as it separates itself from the normal structure of the other tracks and the use of audio engineering really shines here. Unlike the cheap vocal skipping effect in Feel Nothing we have a metallic effect on Landon’s voice that perfectly transports you into the music with a hard-hitting bass heavy section towards the end that also incorporates some unexpected guitar riffing that adds another depth that is just plain awesome. The Sound and I Always Wanted To Leave are really the only other two tracks worth mentioning. The use of horned instruments are a focal point in The Sound and it is a nice break for the album. As for I Always Wanted To Leave, it’s just a really well written and performed song.

I’d like to know why Happy on this album. This track is pointless and has absolutely no place. I feel like this was just put on here because he ran out of ideas but still wanted a ten track LP. Besides this track I think this is a pretty good album. Yeah, some of these songs bare resemblance to Sempiternal but, hey, it happens. If Landon takes what he did with Disposable Fix and incorporates it into the next album I think we’ll have something really good to look forward to.

Tbh, this album was just barely enjoyable. Not quite stale enough to be average, but just barely reaches that 3

Ironic he made this band to make something "heavier" yet this lacks any real form of aggression what so ever. I liked a couple old songs , Landon was kinda unique but this is kinda dreadful IMO.

I'm only 2 or 3 tracks into it, but I don't hate this so far like I expected. I've heard WAY worse. My first impression is this feels like a smoother transition to a more melodic sound than most similar bands have pulled off recently.

Listened to this in whole on the way to work. Man there's some juicy hooks on this and the vocals are great as always. The One You Loved and The Sound really stood out. But fuck the guy who said Disposable Fix was the best TPIY song, I did not appreciate that troll.

Man this album is so far above the rest of their disco it's not even close. Yea if all you love is monotone breakdowns and constant chugging I can see how this album would piss fans off.
