Review Summary: Always what you want and never what you need....

The Plot In You don’t like me. They have a bad habit of dropping songs/albums on days that *** WITH ME. For example they dropped the final track off this mini-EP ‘All That I Can Give’ on my wedding anniversary. To my Ex. ‘Swan Song’ dropped on said EX’s Birthday also…. *** You The Plot In You.

Why does this bother me? It bothers me because Landon’s got a way with words that just hit where it hurts and leave me with no choice but to reflect on said relationship with – the EX. Its more than just the words though, it’s the contrasting sounds that they play with that hook and keep me coming back for more, and I sure am happy I came back for more.

Vol. 2 is only three tracks long, yet you get a taste of everything The Plot In You have to offer. ‘Closure’ is a pop song despite the awkward djenty guitar work. It really hits me very hard, quite clear to see why once you listen to the words being sung. It’s lame and all to say a song connects with you but damnit ‘Closure’ sums up a lot of things for me. I won’t bore you with the details of all my personal life cause…. music but I’m sure you’ll also get feelings if you’ve ever had to move on from someone or something.

‘Don’t Look Away’ is where they excel. Landon’s unhinged uncleans over nu-metal inspired riffing and BIG hard-hitting drums. Sign me up and hook it into my veins. Landon’s vocals are peak here, around the 1.30 mark he does some kind of inhale scream that GOT. ME. OFF.

The riffing is simple yet very juicy and the vocal breakdown followed by a beefy beat is as cheesy as you’re Grandmas Mac & Cheese but it works just as well. ‘All That I Can Give’ is a nice mixture of the two styles whilst leaning heavily towards the pop side of things and showcases Landon’s breathy vocals and his cleans that border on becoming unhinged screams. The chorus is sure to be a hit in some sweaty venues.

It’s clear The Plot In You tracks are built around Landon’s vocals. I don’t blame them, his got a very strong voice that can shift effortlessly between clean and unclean, and he has a honest way with words that are easy to reflect and connect with. In saying this, you’re either going to go with Landon on the ride or you’re going to fit them in right next to BMTH. Which is a shame because old mate Oli ain’t going nothing on Landon, vocally, lyrically and hair wise.

Unsurprisingly, Landon’s vocals are unreal on the newest track. Closure isn’t my favorite but those other two tracks are undeniably fantastic

Yeah Vol 1 has gotten me back from a LONG time of not listening to them. And I've listened to them since they were still called Vessels. Along the way they fell into a identity crisis with Landon seemingly falling out of love with heavy music and working more on his solo stuff than TPIY at times. Vol 1 is the better of the two EPs, but both are superb.



Seems to be the year of EPs with these two, Comeback Kid, Greyhaven, the Dir En Grey rerecordings, Northlane and new bands like Downswing and Hollow Suns

Goddamn I still can’t get over how sick Don’t Look Away is. Gotta be the most unhinged thing they’ve done, yet also fine-tuned in all the right ways. That last “hook” or whatever hits so fucking hard
