4.5 superbzmol | June 29th 15

Was not expecting big things from this. While it's not rrevolutionary, they play to their strengths. The back half rof the record is my personal favourite, especially Exodus. rThat track is huge and I can't get enough. Might drop to a r4 in time, but I'm really enjoying it so far.rEDIT: I've not stopped listening to this. It's great. rHighlights are Castles in the Air, Dark Horses, rDreamer/Parallels, Baby Bird/Effigy, and especially rExodus.

3.8 excellentDaveyBoy EMERITUS | September 28th 15

One of the more unexpected turns of 2015 is The Getaway Plan's 3rd LP 'Dark Horses'. Independently recorded & released, the Melbourne rockers have made absolutely no compromises whatsoever on this mature & extremely ambitious album. Expansive soundscapes, unpredictable song structures & rather dark lyrics make for an absorbing listen for the most part, although the record is undoubtedly overlong at 62 minutes. Difficult to rate since not everything hits the mark, the whole is better than the sum of its parts here, on an LP which the quartet have clearly poured their blood, sweat & tears into. Recommended Tracks: Exodus, Battleships, Last Words & Landscapes.

Really good album, some of the lengthier tunes haven't really grown on me, although Exodus is good. But unlike zmol I prefer the front half.
