The Finals - Plan You Getaway Review

by Rob Nipe

.
If you're in a band that has the balls to call themselves The Finals, then your band should have the sound to back it up. The Finals-the name, not the band-conjures images of panicked students, pressure situations, the culmination of a full year's worth of work, and upset stomachs from internalizing all that tension. Well, maybe that last one was just me but The Finals-the band with the name-fails to convince me of that gravitas. I'm not even sure if they would rate being called The Midterm. A more fitting name might be A Pop Quiz.

There is a clear rock approach to the music and it creates a kind of blasé feel that the album never overcomes. In fact, the only time the album is allowed to deviate from the tried and true rock approach that The Finals seems to have so much faith in is "Extended Autumn", a minute-forty second long song that sounds more like a song that your high school buddies with the guitars and the effects pedals might have made. And thought was good. They were just as wrong then as The Finals are now. Plus, I believe the track titles are messed up on the album. That is unless there are supposed to be two songs on the same album that use the lyric "raining in my heart." If that is true then I'd like to suggest that The Finals study a little harder because I think they're going to have to repeat a year.
