Plow United - Narcolepsy LP - White Vinyl (/100)

Square Of Opposition (2012)

I have power again after Hurricane Sandy and am able to post. We didn't have power for 8 days. No heat, no nothing. It was incredibly annoying but I am very grateful that I did not have to endure the type of catastrophic problems that many others in my state have suffered. I just want to say thank you to everyone that sent an email or said something nice via twitter during this. It meant a lot. Anyway, back to the rock! I have a pretty good backlog of records from before the hurricane, not to mention I haven't gotten mail in over a week, so who knows what's still floating around out there for me. Hopefully it arrives safe.

The final Plow United record finally released on vinyl. I don't really have many memories of when this CD came out on Creep Records in 1998. I remember people saying it was no good. As much as I loved Plow II and the bands debut, for one reason or another I just never bought their 3rd album. Here we are 14 years later and it's out on vinyl. Time to give it a chance I think.

I will say this, it is not as good as the band's 1st 2 albums. However, it's still pretty good. About half the songs are very good and there's only a couple of duds. Listening to the record it kind of feels like a band breaking up, a bit darker than before, but I absolutely think this is worth a purchase, especially considering it's the only Plow United record that's currently in print (I don't count that best of comp, it is a silly thing).

Check it out before you buy it, the label has made the whole record available for download. if you download it, you should donate a few bucks to the band, it's only fair. Or, go buy the vinyl if you like it.
