They can't be human. At least, not in this time.


TVOTR is way too unique and creative to be human. Once again, the band has playfully experimented with music as though it is a foreign artistic medium, and has successfully reinvented the precedented mastery. Preview the 'Dear Science' tracklist and then preview the tracks on the iTunes 'Top Songs' list. What is wrong with this picture? In a time where Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, P!nk, and Britney Spears reign supreme, do we even deserve TVOTR's music? Farther in the future, our children's children will listen back to this band and think, "Look at what the world had available to them, and look at what they chose instead." Do we deserve TVOTR's music at this time? That is the question of the day, ladies and gentlemen. Ponder it.

Painfully overrated already


First of all, don't get me wrong. TV On The Radio (TVOTR) is one of the most innovative bands in music today. They're very, very good, and there is no disputing this. Dave Sitek is one of the least appreciated producers alive, Hell, he almost made Scarlett Johansson sound good (almost). But, unfortunately, "Dear Science" is not the album everyone is saying it is. This is an album of epic proportions, sure, but there is such a thing as being too ambitious, and that's one thing this album suceeds at. The good songs are very, very good. "Halfway Home" is an incredibly strong opener, and sets the atmopshere for what could be a mindblowing album. Unfortunately, it turns from good to very bad. Fast. TVOTR's desire to fuse genres and make something unheard of goes depressingly wrong about halfway through lead-single "Dancing Choose", which somehow tries to mix indie electronica-rock with disco-funk, and fails. If David Bowie and Brian Eno got their hands on really bad Cocaine around the "Low"-era, and Bowie was inexplicably angry, it might sound like this. The next few songs continue to disappoint, speeding up the tempo, adding unnecessary "wall-of-sound" horns, all over equally scoff-worthy lyrics. "Family Tree", however, is somewhat of a saving grace for the album, and really turns a dismal streak of songs upside down. However, the strongest song of the album is followed by another string of should-be-B-Sides, including "Red Dress", one of the least credible indie-rock songs of the year. The album closes on a strong note with "Lover's Day", one of TVOTR's strongest tracks, but it can't save an album that's already received comparisons to "Kid A" and "Funeral", to of rock's greatest accomplisments. "Dear Science" is hardly a bad album, and perhaps this would be 4-Star worhty if it hadn't been innappropriately compared to indie-rock gems. Mark my words, this is hardly the album of the year, that award should go to No Age or Fleet Foxes, this on the other hand, is an ambitious, decent album from a band committed to pushing the bar.

Acerca de TV on the Radio

De Brooklyn, el grupo TV on the Radio mezcla el post-punk y otros elementos electrónicos y ambientales de una forma tan creativa que solo se explica si el vocalista Tunde Adebimpe y el multiinstrumentalista y productor David Andrew Sitek, que constituyen el alma del grupo, son artistas plásticos además de músicos. La banda debutó con el EP, Young Liars, en 2003 que recibió la aclamación internacional de la crítica casi de forma unánime. Los discos siguientes como Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes, Return to Cookie Mountain y Dear Science ayudaron a consolidar la reputación del grupo como uno de los conjuntos más pioneros y visionarios que mezcla géneros del s. XXI. ~ Zaira Sánchez
