4 stars 28th January, 2023: Plini - Other Things (progressive rock/jazz fusion, 2013)

I can definitely see why some consider this Plini's finest moment, but I think for me it's just a little too short to hold that title. I always have felt he's been at his most convincing when he drops the metal, and this is by far his softest release, with the first two tracks being jazzy, fluid, passionate and lush, with the piano backing on the title track in particular being great. But then he does break out the metal, and it really works - "Selenium Forest" is perhaps one of the best examples of Plini gone heavy, and even the subtle djent bits work well. I still prefer some of his later work as there's a bit more of an identity - he hasn't quite crafted his very signature lick style on this release - but this is a very pretty little release, and I'd like to see him again return to making more jazz-focused music.

6.7 (4th listen)
