BARE NECESSITIES, Plus One's debut, was produced by Plaid, and their influence shines through in jaunty melodies and crisp drum programming. The perky joy of "Sticker" or the tropical leanings of "Shao" certainly bear their hallmarks, but the electro of "Nibble" suggests a slightly different direction, as does the jittery play of "Yip." The tropics return with the percussion of "Metro," though the melody takes on angular forms, and this sharpness leaks into "Il." Some mystery wanders its way onto the electro of "Arabesk," and "List" harnesses some industrial tones, while the hidden track, "Mayday" chirps quietly along. A little-known gem.

For those who've been run clean off his/her feet looking for a sound close to Plaid's. This is the album you need and it's as close to Plaid as you can get. Very interesting and very mild but has no xylophone play which is usual for Andy and Ed. Overall worth buying. The most amazing track is hidden right after 'List'.

I feel this is a terrific release, well worth the money if you can even find it. I don't think there's a single bad track, much of it is upbeat and very creative, with some more emotional work as well. The Plaid influence is obvious and helps quite a bit, but this stands out on its own as well. One of the gems in my collection.

Maybe not as great as some of his influences but I definitely think that there is more going on than just some reworked PLAID tunes. I would definitely check out the next release.
