TV on the Radio: Dear Science, (2008)
This is not a review. The new album by TV on the Radio comes out on Sept. 23, but it was leaked online awhile ago. I’ve listened to it nonstop over the past few days and all I can say is: my God. If this isn’t the best album of the year, I don’t know what is. While I ranked their 2006 album, Return to Cookie Mountain, as the best album of that year, Dear Science, (yes, comma included) reaches to even higher heights. This is sheer musical genius, an album for the ages. I plan to buy it the day it is finally released, and you should, too.
