SYNDICATE

TVontheRadioDearScienceSound: An extremely-difficult-to-pigeonhole hodgepodge of electro funk, funk rock and atmospheric rock. At the forefront, more than ever before, are crisp, soulful and frequently falsetto vocals that can either lead the way with precise, gripping melodies, sweetly harmonize, or swirl up into a dense labyrinth. At times, the music recalls elements of Prince, Kenna, Peter Gabriel and The Cure. But make no mistake, TV on the Radio’s sound is entirely their own.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “Dancing Choose”; “DLZ”; “Lover’s Day”
Medium Rotation tracks: “Crying”; “Love Dog”: “Halfway Home”; “Shout Me Out”
Recommended: Dear Science lacks the stunning highlights of Return to Cookie Mountain (my #5 Album of 2006). And the tracks in the middle pale in comparison to the songs at the beginning and the end. But TV on the Radio have whipped up another one-of-a-kind batch of highly ambitious, confoundingly complex and impossibly beautiful music.
