Change is an album by The Dismemberment Plan. It was released on October 23, 2001 on DeSoto Records. It was recorded by J. Robbins at Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, Virginia and it was mixed by Chad Clark.
Compared to The Dismemberment Plan's previous album Emergency & I, Change is more somber musically, with more introspective lyrics. Lead singer Travis Morrison has called the album his "night album," saying in an interview with Stylus Magazine: “I think late-night records tend to have much more carefully modulated dynamics, they tend, whatever the dynamics are they’re not trying to beat you over the head with a point. They’re trying to provide a space you can kind of enter and roam around a little bit. And, uh, yeah, that’s what I think of when I think of late-night records. Like Court and Spark by Joni Mitchell, or any Portishead, or Kid A or Remain In Light by Talking Heads you can either completely envelop yourself in it, or you can let it kind of burble away in the corner and do your thing—uh, usually I kind of opt for the former, 'cause they’re so compelling. But they're challenging records to make, 'cause they may just bore everybody, it’s quite possible.
