Album Review

The Plastic Constellations first full-length call to arms, Let's War, continues to preach the teenage idealists' gospel: hearts to be worn on sleeves, emotions to be expressed openly and freely without fear of ridicule, and rock music to danced to at full volume. They profess a healthy mistrust of hero worship and corporate hegemony, without sacrificing a shred of their sense of humor; to wit, the title track pits the band against "the serpent" (a manifestation of all the aforementioned evils of the world), who they mercilessly attack with their "long-ass swords." A freshly graduated batch of high school survivors when the album was recorded, they astutely made Let's War a stylistically diverse affair, mixing hip-hop rhyme structures, heave-and-pitch vocal trade-offs, and bar-room piano balladry into their effervescent indie guitar anthems.

Fortunately, true believers in the tenets of the underground have always known that, so long as there are fired-up, guitar-toting youths, there will always be the Plastic Constellations.
