iTunes Review

Proof of Youth surprised all those who thought this English group’s debut, Thunder, Lightning, Strike, was both an anomaly and a one-trick pony. While the songs here once again dig deep into pop culture’s pockets (‘70s urban funk, airy ‘60s pop, swaggering “lady MC” and hip-hop flourishes, clanging indie rock guitars, and double Dutch and cheerleading shout-alongs), founder Ian Parton has traded in some of the heavy sampling for live instruments and vocals, resulting in a fuller, more “live” and, frankly, more sophisticated sound. When you’ve worked up a sweat from opener “Grip Like a Vice” (featuring lead vocalist Ninja’s staccato girl-power rap) and the shamelessly youthful, exuberant “Doing It Right,” “My World” offers two minutes of gentle acoustic guitars and warm Casio tones to catch your breath by. Once recharged, your inner Energizer bunny can keep hopping to the roaring “Titanic Vandalism,” or shift into an indie-pop shimmy on “Fake ID.” With smart pacing and interesting textures, even the criminally hooky “Keys to the City,” the bubbly “I Never Needed It Now So Much” (featuring Solex on vocals), and the dark energy of “Flashlight Fight” (featuring Public Enemy’s Chuck D) won’t leave you in a deflated, collapsed heap on the floor. It will just leave you smiling.

Customer Reviews

Let's Go! Team

All I expected from this Brighton band is a decent sophomore effort but what we get is another mindblowing record filled with lush instrumentals and sweet beats. Proof of Youth is a coherent and charismatic listen but it isn't till the end of the record where one will realize the Go! Team's uncanny sense of melodies. It's a record you can listen to over and over again yet it won't lose it's charm. Even though it's not as captivating as their debut, this disc has something for everyone and that's why I love the Go! Team... They combine '70s cop show tunes with shredding guitars, drums and drum machines, and Cheerleading MCs to create a truly unique experience. Plus, Chuck D (Public Enemy) is a guest. 90/100

Sounds alot like thunder lightning

Now I do think this is a good album but I can't help but feel it sounds too much like their last record. I hope on their next record they"ll try to make it different without losing their style.

Go - Go! Team - GO!!!

I originally logged-on to purchase "Graduation" and fuel the ridiculous Kanye vs. 50 "duel"; however, after stumbling upon "Proof of Youth," I realized my money would be well spent supporting the UK! Granted, I'm not the most knowledgable about Go! Team, but I have enjoyed many tracks["Junior Kickstand", "Huddle Formation", "The Power is On", "Ladyflash"...]. If for nothing else, check-out "Flashligt Fight(both versions)", "Titanic Vandalism", "Grip Like a Vice", and "Keys to the City."
