“I don't believe I have ever given higher praise to any band in my life.”Doug LeBlanc - Canadian Progressive Rock Society
What a glorious night! They blew me away ! They were everything I was hoping for, and more. I get shivers down my spine just thinking of it ! Watching their grand opus 'End Of An Era', I was struck at how powerfully they could present such a long epic in the tradition of 'Supper's Ready' by Genesis, or 'Ritual' by Yes. As an ardent fan of both pieces, I can only say that this nearly excelled beyond them. I don't believe I have ever given higher praise to any band in my life.
“This is one of the coolest bands I've ever heard”Fred Trafton, Gibraltar Encyclopedia of Progressive Rock
It's not very often that I would say, "This band isn't really prog" and in the next breath say "This is one of the coolest bands I've ever heard", but that's definitely how I feel about The Last Placid Days of Plenty. ... I would think most people that would be readers of the GEPR will find these guys as fabulous as I do. One of the best albums I've heard so far this year ... Highly recommended.
“ ... a masterpiece of intelligent beautiful progressive rock music.”Angela Schipplick – www.prog-live.com (Germany)
I have listened to “Headphone Gallery” again and again. With earphones on it's fantastic! This is a masterpiece of intelligent beautiful progressive rock music. I'm very sure that this band is amazing on stage too. I wish I could see a PLENTY concert one day myself !

Stop the presses…Alert the media !!!
PLENTY have carved out a unique musical identity. There is plenty of musical variety to take in here.
I became a confirmed fan after the first listen !
“The musicianship is a cut above in both skill and delivery !”Warren Barker, PROGRESSION magazine (Massachusetts, USA)
This crew’s adventurous songcraft conjures old-school bombast, neo-prog metal and soft acoustic sections.
The musicianship is a cut above in both skill and delivery !
Headphone Gallery has something for all tastes, making this whole affair a bold debut.
Score: 14 [highest possible = 16]
“ Headphone Gallery is a mature album with quality!”Kristian Selm, www.progressive-newsletter.de (Germany)
Here you can find passages which remind you of Pink Floyd, beautiful instrumentals, but also parts with a neo-progressive glow.
They also show that they know how to do long tracks with varied dynamics.
“Headphone Gallery” is a mature album with quality!
