As Far as the Eye Can See

The collision of art and rock tends to produce some pretty interesting music, and that's precisely the spark behind this Welsh-bred combo. Unlike most of the buzz bands to emerge from Britain in the past couple of years, People in Planes aren't overly fond of distortion or in-your-face riffing. Instead, the band recall the finer points of early Radiohead or (even more to the point) Supergrass circa I Should Coco, layering lush guitar parts and arch vocals with a defiantly bigger-is-better attitude. Frontman Gareth Jones is largely responsible for keeping the band on the proper side of the line separating audaciousness and pretense, a line he walks with panache on tracks like the arena-ready "Falling By the Wayside" and the brainiac blues lament "Barracuda" (not, incidentally, a Heart cover). Guitarist Peter Roberts is the chief sonic architect, waxing almost (Pink) Floydian on the trippy "Rush" and bending the melody of "If You Talk Too Much (My Head Will Explode)" into all sorts of intriguing Wire-like angles. The vistas are as vast as the album's title suggests, offering plenty of space to stop and feed your head.
