iTunes Review

Their second album on Island Records rings and shines with the over-the-top production values of GRAMMY®-awarded super-producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, Wolfmother, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Cash, Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones, etc). A bombastic title-track opens with rumbling rhythms and gossamer strings, courtesy of the Calder Quartet, as music critic-turned-frontman Mikel Jollett croons with the heartfelt, soaring inflections of a young Bono. “Numb” is similarly dramatic as winding guitars and trudging drumbeats accompany distorted synthesizers while Jollett sings lyrics about the joys of succumbing to the stereotyped aloof numbness associated with Los Angeles. Loaded with barbed hooks, the angularly arranged “Changing” kick-starts the early 2000s revival before Jollett affects a demure Julian Casablancas approach to the Strokes-esque “It Doesn’t Mean a Thing”, right down to the slightly distorted vocals.

Are They the Next Killers???

Their first album was good with 'Sometime Around Midnight' being the real stand out. This album is more balanced with several excellent songs, definately not the awkward sophmore effort that I was fearing. The big question remains as to why this band aren't enormous?

Upon first listen every single song gets your foot tapping and listening carefully to the clever lyrics, brilliant album

Top notch

Just Brilliant. Been a fan since the start, and not a poor song in this album. Huge fan of Numb and Changing.

Formed by novelist Mikel Jollett during a tumultuous period in his life, the Airborne Toxic Event (named after a section in American author Don DeLillo's novel White Noise) combine literate indie rock with real literary cred. Formed in 2006, the group initially took shape as a Los Angeles-based duo, with Jollett and drummer Daren Taylor serving as the only members. A roster expansion was eventually needed; as a result, classically trained violinist Anna Bulbrook was brought in to play viola and keyboards,...
