"I will admit I am usually not a fan of soft rock. But I bought Relocation (Plankeye's first album since the departure of Scott Silleta) on a whim. To be completely honest with you I was not much more than midly amused when I first popped it in my CD player. However as I listened to each song more and more, I realized how talented Eric and Luis really are, and how flat out relaxing and enjoyable it is to listen to them sing and play their instruments. I definately like their vocals more than Scott Silleta's, they kinda have more of a melodic and overall talented feel to them. Relocation also has a good variety of the good 'ol alternative rock songs combined with some amazingly beautiful slow songs that can seriously grab your heart. Stand out tracks are- "Can't Complain," "Goodbye," "Honey and Oil," "Call Me Liar," and "Break My Fall.""

"Okay, so Plankeye did go through a slight evolution of sound when Scott Silletta (original guitariast and lead vocalist) and Adam Ferry (original drummer) left; this album is a little softer then some past Plankeye stuff, but honestly I felt a little bit of this trend from previous album (The One and Only). But I was always drawn to Plankeye because (1)their deep, impactful lyrics (the songs always say something very important in a lyrically beautiful way) and (2) their musical unpredictability (the songs don't follow the traditional verse, chorus, verse, chorus format, and the instruments never do what pop musicians have trained the listener to expect). Those important elements are still present in Relocation. Not only that, but Eric Balmer and Luis Garcia are obviously talented musicians and songwriters who made obvious contributions to all the previous albums as well as this one. Their efforts should not be belittled or discounted because some people wish to live in a static world where every band sounds exactly the same from album to album.
This album has a lot to offer. "I Can't Complain" and "Indivisble" are great, thoughtful songs with steady rhythms. "You Are For Me" is a beautifully simple love song. "Say Now That You're Sorry" is upbeat and fun with some solid advice for relationships. "When It Comes" is kind of like a love song for the listener. And "Goodbye" is of course awesome, a ballad anthem for life changes. Maybe you aren't getting the solid grunge with the occasionally seasoning of blues that was prevalent in albums like "Spill" and "The Spark" (though "Break of Dawn" and "You Got It" are pretty good throwbacks to classic Plankeye), but what Plankeye stands for -faith, love, creativity,etc.- did not change when Scott and Adam moved on to other things."
