“East Coast Music Review - Plaskett Shaking Up Music World With New Album.. Joel Plaskett is about to change the way albums are released with an ambitious new plan to unveil his latest, Scrappy Happiness. Starting January 10th Plaskett and The Emergency are going into the studio to record. But instead of doing all the songs at once, and then dropping the whole disc when its done, the band will work on one song at a time, and release it immediately. That means recording, and then putting out a song a week, digitally, for ten weeks. By the end of the run, March 27th, the album will be complete, and fans can then buy the whole thing as a physical piece. Plaskett wants to return to the roots of rock recording, the 50's and 60's era, when singles were done, and released quickly. It's a plan he's had for awhile, first talking about it, at least to me, well over a year ago. ..see more....http://www.cbc.ca/nb/mt/east-coast-music/2012/01/plaskett-shaking-up-music-world-with-new-album.html”

“Plaskett is incredibly gifted, incredibly prolific and incredibly true to himself as a musician. Three proves this again - and again - and again.”

“While Three trades in the rock 'n' roll swagger of that record for stripped-down folk-pop, it is similarly streamlined and focused - which is a feat considering its size. It's a record that not only speaks to Plaskett's ability as a songwriter, but also to his fearlessness.”

“Now, with the release of his 27-song, three-disc magnum opus Three, the full scope of Plaskett’s own eccentricities are on display — and thankfully, even his most left-field ideas are clever, chock full of melodies, and effortlessly catchy.”
