4 stars I know Plini has been releasing music for some time, and I've heard the occasional song by him, but I'm just now getting around to hear a full album's worth of material. "Impulse Voices" is a good listen if you love modern music. Plini combines a bit of everything into the mix; down-tuned guitars, crunch, djent, metal, dance, funk, odd time signatures, and most of all great guitar playing. There are tons of guitarists that can shred, but most shredder albums are boring to me, as they only focus on how many notes they can play in a measure. Not how many great songs they can write. Well, Plini is all about the music and it shows. "Impulse Voices" is great album that only gets better after each listen and sparks my interest to hear more.

3 stars Listening diary 21st March, 2021: Plini - Impulse Voices (progressive rock/metal, 2020)

I started off really hating Plini, like as in I actually despised his early EPs. But after a few years I began to open up to his style, and though I won't call him a genius like some do, he's one of the very few guitarists operating today that has managed to carve a niche just as a guitar player. There's an incredibly distinctive way that he plays the instrument that is so undeniably him, and I really can't think of anyone in the last 10 years who has done that without also relying on gimmicks. So I suppose this is just another record of Plini doing just that, and it's fairly good for muzak or light reading. I don't think it's as good as Handmade Cities, nor is it anything to write home about, but there's a time and a place for muzak and I think Plini does it well.

5.4 (1st listen)
