Brian Plummer: I'm As Guilty As You Are (1981)
Canadian new wave conscript Brian Plummer's follow-up to to his simmering debut No Questions (see HERE) was the rock-steady-as-she-goes I'm As Guilty As You Are (1981).
Sound-wise, Plummer sticks to the reggafied new-wave pop-rock that defined his first album. While the debut's AOR-ish flourishes get less play here, no one's ever gonna mistake this for Damned, Damned, Damned. Visually, this time out the art director plays down the bearded-singer-songwriter angle with a plethora of vertical red lines.
