Top Albums 2006- #7

Return To Cookie Mountain
TV on the Radio

Beneath its dense sprawl of guitars, samples, beats, and everything else under the sun, lies the perfect album. Thought provoking, musically rich, experimental and accessible (I even heard “Wolf Like Me” on KROQ). You couldn’t ask for anything better from these guys. Finally delivering on the promise of the Young Liars EP, TV On The Radio create their own personal masterpiece. And despite its accessibility end up sounding like no other band or album. The addition of a drummer and bassist have clearly helped to flesh out what used to be top heavy sound collages into full fledge songs. After repeated listens, Return To Cookie Mountain proves to be one the most engaging and involving records of the year.
