Album Review: TV On The Radio - Nine Types of Light

Tuesday 26th April, 2011 9:36AM

Back in 2008, Dear Science by TV on the Radio was one of the most highly regarded albums of the year. It garnered well deserved plaudits from every sector of the music industry and helped to establish the band as one of the brightest lights in modern music. It is not an easy act to follow and their new album, Nine Types of Light, is quite a different affair. Itís as if they realised that they could never top themselves and have instead shot off in a new direction. The band has jettisoned much of the emotional baggage that had manifested in lyrical tirades and itchy guitars, opting to take a sunnier path forwards. This is the sound of a rock band that has become disillusioned with howling guitar assaults and sensory overloads, substituting them for synth bass squelches, horns section vamps, and electric blips where possible. The result is a catchy one and TV on the Radio has the song writing chops to carry the listener through the albumís weaker areas and keep them holding on for the A-grade material.
