Plans Within Plans

Twenty years, nine studio records, two cover records, one side band, one Christmas record, a few EPs. MxPx is one of the longest-running Christian punk bands that made it okay to love God and punk rock. Plans Within Plans is a solid new-era MxPx record. Twenty years in the game, these guys have gone from teenage politics to a wife that loves for us for who we are. I like that they have not changed their sound – though “Stand on Your Feet” has a hint of Mike’s side band Tumbledown coming out. All in all this is a great record to have if you love Magnified Plaid. It has everything you would want from an MxPx record and then some.

If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
