Plumb is an artist whose provocative, intoxicating music blends the complex, feminine poignancy of Suzanne Vega with the sophisticated, modern Rock n Roll of Garbage to create something timeless yet cutting-edge. While her voice frequently draws comparison to Amy Lee of Evanescence, Amy's own citation of Plumb as one of her primary vocal influences is further evidence that Plumb is an artist who innovated rather than imitates.
Her fourth studio album, Chaotic Resolve, is a refreshing blend of haunting melodies, edgy lyrics, piercing imagery, sublime textures and serious pop hooks. This marks the re-emergence of an unmistakable important voice in pop music.

Standout Christian Album of Decade| Posted September 04, 2007
There are a few standout Christian albums of the decade so far in my opinion and this is one of them along with "Casting Crowns" and "Arriving" by Chris Tomlin where every song is powerful, lyrically strong and truly deserving of the top rating that other albums are compared to. The songs "Cut", "Better", "I Can't Do This" and "Bittersweet" are all-time Plumb songs and Tiffany Arbuckle-Lee is my favorite vocalist ever. Amy Lee of Evanescence credits Plumb as an influence and you can't go wrong with this album.
Top Of My List For Favorite Albums| Posted June 12, 2007
The new project from Plumb is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. In fact, since I received the pre-release back in April of 2005, I have yet to come across a more well-rounded effort by any group or act in the Christian music marketplace. The album that came out on February 28th is the exact same project I've been drooling over for ten plus months, and while I now understand the delay (Tiffany Arbuckle gave birth to her first child a few months ago), it's been frustrating to not enjoy the album along with other music fans. Well, my selfish wait is over.
Chaotic Resolve is a rarity in today's single driven music world. Every track has something to offer from the pop-driven love songs like "Real Life Fairytale" and "Blush" to the emotional ballads dealing with real-life issues like "Cut" and Jekyll & Hyde." The majority of this album is up-beat with songs like "Manic" and "Motion" carving out a new pop-rock nitch in Christian music, while other songs like "I Can't Do This" and "Better" provide industrial undertones that bring back fond memories of discovering Evanescence all over again.
Plumb has always had a way of connecting to her listening audience on a real level by singing about real life, and her new material is no different. But it's her subtle content on this album that impresses me most. Plumb's ability to create a cohesive and flowing album out of a multitude of themes and topics is not easy to do. She goes from songs about lifelong love to emotional turmoil. One of my favorite lines is in the song "I Have Nothing." She sings, "Why do I put so much time, on things I'll leave behind, that were never mine?" There's a lot of truth and challenge behind those sixteen words.
The new album has already produced two Christian radio hits ("I Can't Do This" and "Better") along with a video for the yet-to-be-released song "Cut." If it would have been released last year, it would have certainly topped my list of favorite releases. While we're only a sixth of the way through 2006, it's going to take something pretty special to uproot Chaotic Resolve as the best album of the year. It's certainly been worth the wait.
Edgy Rock Sound Makes For Best Album of 2006| Posted November 09, 2008
In September of 2006 I took a big risk and bought this album. I had only heard Plumb's song "Stranded" and really liked it, so I gave this album a try.
WOW and I am glad I did. This album is remarkable. The desperate "I Can't Do This", the angry "Better", the vulnerable "Cut", the passionate "Bittersweet", the edgy rock track "Good Behavior", the danceable "Motion", the achingly sincere "Damaged (Extended Cut)" all make up a great album. You did it again Plumb. You did it again.

Awesome!| Posted October 10, 2007
This is an awesome album! Filled with lots of rock, pop and coupled with Plumbs amazing voice, I couldn't have asked for a better album. I love the song "Better", and the music is amazing.
cool| Posted August 25, 2007
plumb isn't my favorite band, but this is my favorite album by them. it is pretty cool, though. there a few songs that really stand out to me like i can't do this, manic, and better, but overall it's just not my favorite.
