I think I like this TV On The Radio album less then their other ones. But that doesn't say much, given that I love everything they've released. (Return To Cookie Mountain is one of my all-time favorites.) There are obviously cuts that I love--like, "Will Do."
This album feels a little cooler, and a tad smoother. There are a lot of ballads, but being an unreconstructed romantic, that's fine with me. I think this is the record I'll give to all these negroes who I've been trying to get to like TVOTR. It's a good starting point--like Homogenic for Bjork. Something about the drums.
In other news, I'm thinking about trying one of those Tunde beards. I doubt I can get to Kyp's level. He's rocking the full Frederick Douglass.
