'Option Paralysis' is The Dillinger Escape Plan's proud debut release for the Season of Mist label. The album, which nearly unanimously topped the music press' "2010 Most Anticipated" lists, sees the band choose a heavier direction while simultaneously able to exercise and paralyze many other blissfully unexpected options.
This special edition of 'Option Paralysis' comes as a cross-form fold-out digipak in a clear, embossed o-card and includes a bonus track exclusive to this version!
"'Option Paralysis' is about the homogenisation of society. It's about how, with so much choice open to every single one of us, it's easy to lose sight of what's important."
""Widower" is a beautiful, early Lollapalooza-era treat, featuring Bowie's 'Aladdin Sane' pianist Mike Garson..."
"Here their combination of jazz time signatures, abrasive vocals and metal breaks amounts to a sand-blasting of the senses, an agreeable barrage..."
""Widower" is a math-metal interpretation of a jazz-lounge ballad. It is a piano-driven track that begins with soft vocals, but continues with ricocheting guitars and the band's trademarked complex time signatures."
Greg Puciato (vocals); Benjamin Weinman (guitar, piano, programming, background vocals); Jeff Tuttle (guitar); Liam Wilson (bass guitar); Bill Rymer (drums).
