Reseña de álbum

As passionate as ever, but now with a little more polish, TV on the Radio's second album (and Interscope debut), Return to Cookie Mountain, is their most satisfying work since they exploded onto the scene with Young Liars. More than some of their indie rock peers, TV on the Radio seems comfortable on a major label. They've always been a band with a big, unapologetically ambitious sound, and on Return to Cookie Mountain, they give that sound room to breathe with a lush, expansive production. The sonic depth throughout the album is a sharp contrast with the density of their first full-length, Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes, which was so jam-packed with sounds and ideas that it was nearly suffocated by them. However, Return to Cookie Mountain is hardly slick or dumbed-down for mass consumption. In fact, the opening track, "I Was a Lover," is one of the band's most challenging songs yet, mixing a stuttering hip-hop beat with guitars of Loveless proportions and juxtaposing inviting vocal harmonies and horns with glitches and trippy sitars. "Playhouses" is only slightly less radical, with its wildly syncopated drumming and Tunde Adepimbe's layered, impassioned singing. At times, Return to Cookie Mountain threatens to become more impressive than likeable — a complaint that could also arguably be leveled against Desperate Youth as well — but fortunately, TV on the Radio reconnects with, and builds on, the intimacy and purity that made Young Liars so striking. David Bowie's backing vocals on "Province" are only one part of the song's enveloping warmth, rather than its focal point, while the album's centerpiece, "A Method," is another beautiful example of the band's haunting update on doo wop. Meanwhile, the mention of "the needle/the dirty spoon" on "Tonight" cements it as a gorgeous but unsettling urban elegy. As with all their other work, on Return to Cookie Mountain TV on the Radio deals with the fallout of living in a post-9/11 world; politics and morality are still touchstones for the band, particularly on the anguished "Blues from Down Here" and "Hours," on which Adepimbe urges, "Now listen to the truth." Notably, though, the album builds on the hopeful, or at least living for the moment, vibe that emerged at the end of Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes. The sexy, funky "Wolf Like Me," which is the closest the album gets to rock in any conventional sense of the term, and "Dirtywhirl," which spins together images of girls and hurricanes, offer erotic escapes. And by the time the epic final track, "Wash the Day," revisits the sitars that opened the album with a serene, hypnotic groove, Return to Cookie Mountain gives the most complete representation of the hopes, joys, and fears within TV on the Radio's music.

TVOTR's sophomore effort does not disappoint

TVOTR has been criticized for being possibly too ambitious in their sound, and though a few tracks do threaten to buckle under their own sonic weight, on the whole this record is fantastic. The single Wolf Like Me is the most infectious indie rock single of the year thus far, boasting a shouted, mantra-like vocal melody, a rollicking and slightly off-kilter drumbeat, and a cool-down interlude just long enough to give you a breather before exploding again. The overall sound is more cohesive than the debut record, and there is enough complexity in the layers of sound to keep you listening over and over.

I contribute to the hype

I was generally skeptical about the hype surrounding this album, but once I heard the oddly clipped horns that start "I Was A Lover," I couldn't resist it. I have a huge collection (500+ albums), and I rarely end up listening to the same thing twice in a week, much less in a day, but this album has been in constant rotation since it came out. Yeah, it has a stupid name, and yeah, it's one of those albums that it's cool to rave about, but this one really deserves it. It never gets boring. Each song is better than the last, and the style changes over the course of the album, starting out with something like a modernized version of 70s funk, and gradually transforming it into lush indie rock. Plus, David Bowie does guest vocals on "Province."

I HATE...

...the fact that the iTunes music store gives 14 year olds the opportunity to be music critics. Unless it's the 30 year olds who can't spell worth a damn. Anyway, that's neither here nor there. This record is exceptional. Make yourself happy.
