iTunes Review

The long-awaited third studio album from Newmarket, Ontario's Tokyo Police Club features the kind of attention-grabbing hooks that sound so easy and obvious that whatever “alternative” status the group once had must be surrendered for a mainstream pop pedigree. Then again, the writing for Forcefield began in mid-2011, so the process was never as easy as it sounds. But the assured production from Doug Boehm (who has worked magic for Dr. Dog and Girls) and the band’s singer/bassist David Monks is a testament to bright, shiny textures overruling all else. Even the extended eight-plus-minute opener, “Argentina (Parts I, II, III),” retains an accessibility that most bands of TPC’s caliber eventually abandon. “Hot Tonight” is the obvious single, but “Gonna Be Ready,” “Tunnel Vision," and “Through the Wire” also offer up that summer vibe that bands from Foster the People and The Hold Steady to Passion Pit and French Kicks have all been trying to write with varying degrees of success for years.

Customer Reviews

Meh...

Vaguely familiar sounding like the boys who were ripping it up years ago with their unique sound. I hate to admit, but I'm vastly disappointed in this watered down pop effort.

Argentina.... & Toy Guns?

I have basically every TPC song and loveeee almost all of them, one of my favorite bands....and I only bought 2 songs soo that says something.

Argentina is a great addition to the collection and luckily the longest song!!! I liked the toy guns preview but overall it is avg. and repetitive, I'm sure others will like some other songs but meh.

A bore

I have loved this band for some years, and their past efforts bring on emotion and nostalgia for me. As such, this album was highly anticipatedm but it was a let down. I'm not fond of the overall sound by any means, the music sounds boring, and there seems to be a lack of effort compared to the magic the previous records had.
