The Dillinger Escape Plan

Dissociation (Party Smasher/Cooking Vinyl)

Saturday SOS Record Reviews

With 10 feet in several camps, New Jersey's Dillinger Escape Plan whips back and forth between dissonant thrash and brooding prog rock on its allegedly final studio LP. The blazing "Limerent Death" snaps necks at 100 paces, but the lush "Low Feels Blvd" soothes the afflicted. "Honeysuckle" splits the difference, brass knuckles on one hand and a silken glove on the other. The group's ability to gracefully navigate its pop-eyed eclecticore gives it a precision and power its legion of imitators can't touch. (Sat., 11:40pm, the Keep stage)
