This is one of the album that just confuses me. I know that Emergency and I is considered the better album, and in many ways i can agree...it has those magic runanddanceandtellanyonethatwilllisten songs that continue to inspire me to this day. Yet to this day, I swear by this album, and this album alone. There are no real indie anthems on Change, no punk freak outs, few layed keyboards. But none of that really matters. The lyrics are astonishing, the songwriting tight, the chops incredible. Change retains the Plan's unabashedly original, confident sound, it just adds a little maturity to the mix. Not to be missed

"Change" may be filled with earnest, emotional songs, but it would be doing this album a great disservice to call it simply an "emo" or even "indie" album. The Dismemberment Plan's jazz-meets-rock-meets-pop style defies such easy classification. Instead the band stakes out their own niche with a combination of complex rhythms, endlessly fascinating melodies, and above all, rock-solid musicianship. In a sense this could even be considered math rock, owing mainly to the dazzling dexterity of the rhythm section. Joe Easley, especially, is a phenomenal drummer; in some songs he's basically playing extended solos. And the production makes perfect use of space, enabling the listener to pick up every nuance of the intricate arrangements. Supplying the feeling is lead singer Travis Morrison; although he does overdo it with the falsetto a bit, there's no denying that he puts a lot of emotion into his vocals. More than anything, though, what sets "Change" above the crowd is a diverse batch of memorable songs. The hard-rocking "Pay For The Piano" is doubtless one of the catchiest songs of the past few years, and "Following Through" isn't far behind. "Come Home" and the acoustic "Automatic" slow things down for a quieter and more reflective feel, while "Superpowers" just dispenses with the guitars and overwhelms you with layers of shimmering keyboards. "Time Bomb" and the stunning "Other Side" feature some absolutely sick rhythm work, proving conclusively that these guys aren't just another indie band. The good-natured "Ellen And Ben" even demonstrates a sense of humor, closing out the album with a witty tale of a hot-and-cold relationship. "Change" may be my first Dismemberment Plan album, but I can definitely see where all the praise for this band comes from. Now to get "Emergency And I!"

I only heard a little bit of Emergency and I, but that little bit I heard didn't impress me very much. About a year later I was told that Change was very good. I was a bit skeptical since I wasn't too fond of the previous cd. But nevertheless, I listened to a few quick clips off Change. It sounded ok but you can never really tell with those 30 second samples. I ended up buying the album, and am I glad I did. This record is the most sophisticated yet basically simple album I've heard in years. The tracks that really jumped out at me are "following through", "pay for the piano", "secret curse" and "the face of the earth". This album is fantastic...buy it.

Whoa, what was i thinking when my brother asked me to listen to this album he owned. This album got big points off because i never seen this band on TRL. WHY does my brother listen to such bad music like this? It sounds like dave matthews, and he is UNPUNK!! These guys make no sense and these lyrics rip off countless other bands. LONG LIVE NEW WEEZER, JIMMY EAT WORLD, and all the other real emo bands out there!! PUNK RAWK FOREVER!! DUDE!!

Despite the calmer demeanor, Change is a very worth follow-up to the Plan's 1999 opus Emergency & I. While part of the brilliance of Emergency was its seamless blend of just about every popular music genre imaginable, Change finds its brilliance in its flow, consistency, and beauty. If Emergency was the out-of-control party, Change is the morning after with guests gone and the host waking up in a confused daze. "Superpowers" and "Ellen & Ben" are elevated by great keyboard work, something the Plan do with much vigor and creativity. The guitars are generally clean, but very uplifting and gorgeous. A general tone of regret, confusion, depression, and hope emits throughout, and the Plan's use of contradicting moods in terms of music and corresponding lyrics are utterly fantastic. A pretty piece such as "Superpowers" is a little self-depricating while the rise and fall of "Ellen & Ben"'s relationship carries a generally jolly tone. These contradicting tones result in a satisfying lack of melodrama and makes for a very sincere album. Travis' diction and lyrics are some of the best coming from any band: very original, emotional, strange, and clever. The minimalism of "Automatic" works in ways "The Jitters" only hinted at, "Time Bomb" is a desperate confessional in which every line is felt, and "Face Of The Earth"'s dub and hip-hop undertones show a greater understanding and love of both genres than just about every rap-metal band out there. The more mature, mellow tone might disappoint some at first, but repeated listens just get better and better. Change could very well be the ultimate Dismemberment Plan album. Definitely one of the greatest bands out there.
P.S. Someone on the Emergency & I board said that the Plan sounded terrible live. He/She must have caught a bad show because they were fantastic when I saw them live in D.C. this month.
