To The Death
Best Laid Plans

To The Death = Breaking Benjamin + Maroon 5 + Rise Against + Muse

Now, as high as that equation set your expectations, take a minute and come down a little.  I’ll admit, at first I was ready to write this band as of yet another alt-rock/pop band, but ironically while most bands put their best tracks first and last, all the good ones are hidden in the middle.  The band jumps around from style to style, going from electro-pop to punk to alt-rock, but they do it so well it’s forgivable. They’re considerably more comfortable in the pop-rock area than the punk, but the good tracks outnumber the bad considerably.  Give it a spin before you pick it up, and stick to the tracks in the middle.
