10 Songs, 38 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On a trip home to Alaska in 2016, frontman John Gourley stumbled upon his dad’s $8 Woodstock festival ticket stub. The discovery sparked an infatuation with ‘60s pop culture and its politically charged music. The band’s eighth album, a thrilling, gritty package of experimental pop-rock, is their take on music with a message. Loaded with deluxe production (thanks in part to Danger Mouse and Mike D), danceable energy (“Live in the Moment”), and poignant lyrics (“Noise Pollution”), it’s both a lively soundtrack to the resistance and a reminder to have fun.

Always something fresh and original

This band has an album for every mood and situation. How boring would it be if every record sounded the same? I might drive to Church Mouth, Waiter. You Vultures! or Censored Colors. The Satanic Satanist and The Majestic Majesty will alternate alongside In the Mountain In the Clouds while I'm out for a walk. American Ghetto, Evil Friends, and It's Complicated Being a Wizard shuffle while I'm gaming. I imagine I'll be running to this one. Maybe get a little funky. It's proper spanky.

So so so disappointing

So many complaints. This album is very upsetting to me. I've waited so long for this and now it's just the best example of a band who's sold out or ran out of ideas. So Young is the best song. Album should've been that. Not this pop alt sound that songs like Live In The Moment and Mr Lonely and Easy Tiger brings. Feel It Still is at least catchy. But, man, I'm so so so disappointed. I've been a fan for so long. Definitely the worst P.TM album yet. Sorry, guys. Hope you come back stronger. I really really do. Man...

Interchangeable Radio Noise

Another example of why Danger Mouse shouldn't produce a rock album, while I have enjoyed a few of their songs before, likely due to the alleged 60s rock infatuation of the artists it doesn't show through on this thing. In fact, this is one of the most bland, generic pop/rock albums I've heard in a while, it could play right alongside every other pop song on the radio and next to nothing would stand out blurring together with every other track that corporate churns out.
