There are those bands which just seem to have been around for a very long and then you sit back, look perplexed for a moment and think, how are they only on their third studio album? One band this applies to are Perfect Plan and this year has the Swedish melodic rock stalwarts returning with that third studio album ‘Brace for Impact’.
When it comes to melodic rock, Perfect Plan have almost the well, perfect plan and ‘Brace for Impact’ is no different as the album hits the listener like a two-ton heavy thing of melodic rock. With this release, Perfect Plan have amped it up, cranked the volume to 11 and have gone for it with arguably their best album to date. This means that ‘Brace for Impact’ has everything that the melodic rock fan could ever want, rockin’ guitars and soulful vocals coupled with soaring guitar solos and keyboards which do their best to augment the album. This means that through tracks such as ‘Can’t Let You Win’, ‘Surrender’ and ‘If Love Walks In’, Perfect Plan hit the nail on the head with an album which has all the appeal of Foreigner, Giant and Survivor.
With ‘Brace for Impact’, Perfect Plan have reached ‘patch 3.0’, it shows the band continuing to evolve their sound and push themselves creatively. ‘Brace for Impact’ won’t have any appeal outside of that melodic rock sphere, but those versed in its ways will find an excellent new album to hammer constantly.
