Dear Science
TV On The Radio's sound has evolved on their latest release, straddling the precarious line between art and accessibility. On the surface, the band has abandoned their initial vibe completely, trading the scratches and loops of OK Calculator for sometimes strolling, sometimes skipping rock grooves. Upon multiple listens, however, it's apparent that all of the elements that made them famous remain: David Sitek's shining production skills, Tunde Adebimpe's Bowie-esque vocals, relevant lyrics and lush, catchy melodies. Though not sacrificing critical acclaim, Dear Science's overall appeal will likely broaden the band's fan base.
