AllMusic Review by

On this five-track EP, the Plastics seem to be shooting for a sort of spacey, semi-psychedelic sound; unfortunately, their attempts at spaciness tend to come across as somewhat standard rock tones, and their definite pop leaning keeps them from ever achieving anything particularly unique. In spite of this, the Plastics are fairly effective on the pop side -- Sonic Vacation's songwriting is a bit uneven, but a good sense of dynamics keeps things interesting throughout.
