iTunes Review

Plans Within Plans is this Bremerton, Wash.–based punk-pop combo’s first album of new material in five years. Palpitating beats, careening guitars, and bratty-but-yearning vocals are still the trio’s stock in trade, delivered here with the same headlong enthusiasm that launched it in the ‘90s. While the band’s Christian roots are muted in these tracks, MxPx continues to pack its lyrics with life-affirming credos and declarations of romantic devotion. “Aces Up,” “Lucky Guy," and “Stay on Your Feet” are especially winning anthems with a positive edge. As before, singer/bassist Mike Herrera isn’t above admitting his rampant neuroses, as “Screw Loose” indicates. Panting punk assaults like “Inside Out,” “Far Away," and “Nothing Left” reassert the band’s ability to thrash and burn while remaining melodic. “Nothing’s Gonna Change” closes the album with bracing time shifts and a self-empowering message. Twenty years ago, MxPx was pining for love while reveling in the freedom of the road. Plans Within Plans returns to these concerns with both newfound maturity and ever-youthful idealism.

Customer Reviews

I love it!!! But I'm biased...

First review of our new record. I couldn't resist...

One of their best!

I'm 36, been a fan of these guys since day one. This album is the perfect combo of early and later MxPx. Blazing fast and melodic. Can't go wrong here, buy it!

New MxPx!!!

I've just breezed through the album so far, so I haven't had the time to let the album sink in yet... although, I must say it sounds great so far. It's typical MxPx but with a little more maturity which has been a growing part in their music for the past few albums. I'm 30 years old now and remember being 14 jamming out to teenage politics. It's been a while since then, but MxPx have still got that something special that made them special 16 years ago when I first started to listen to them. God bless you guys, Looking forward to many more years of your music! Keep on representing for the Lord guys! Not many bands out there have the balls to do so even if they are believers.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The Christian-themed punk-pop outfit MxPx formed in 1993 in Bremerton, WA. Originally dubbed Magnified Plaid, the group launched while its three members -- vocalist/bassist Mike Herrera, drummer Yuri Ruley, and guitarist Andy Husted -- were still attending high school. The moniker was later shortened to MxPx after Ruley abbreviated the name on some show flyers; poor handwriting saw the periods being interpreted as x's instead, and the name stuck. Wielding an energetic sound that was inspired by the...
