10 Years Ago Today: The Dismemberment Plan releases "Emergency & I"...
Emergency & I is a 1999 album by Washington, D.C. indie band The Dismemberment Plan, issued on DeSoto Records. It was produced by J. Robbins and Chad Clark. Reviews for the album were generally very favorable. For example, Pitchfork Media rated it 9.6 on a scale of 10.0, with a short review that read simply, "If you consider yourself a fan of groundbreaking pop, go out and buy this album right now. Now. Get up. Go."
Pitchfork then ranked it #16 on their "redux" version of the Top 100 Albums of the 1990s list. Similarly, its Allmusic review says, "The band's third full album is a firecracker, showing their at once passionate and sly approach to music—take in everything, put it back out, and give it its own particular sheen and spin—is in no danger of letting up."
