This album is like three mad and electrifying musical solos somehow blending into one perfect composition; an intense musical jam session that doesn't let up until the we reach the last few tracks wherein a slight normality resumes and beautiful harmonies burst through the wall of sound.
White Denim mash up so much influence, inspiration, genres and styles in "Fits' that it sounds like you've experienced a lifetimes worth of work by the time the album reaches its 30 odd minute conclusion. Such is the pace and intensity of the album (particularly during the early songs) that the brilliance of this record may not sink in upon the first listen, but give it a few more play throughs and everything begins to make sense; the wild unexpected twists of "Radio Milk How Can You Stand It", the seductive groove of "Sex Prayer" (which could easily pass off as a Doors backing track) and the light and gorgeous "Regina Holding Hands" are just some of the albums highlights.
I have no idea what the band are singing about on "Fits", it sometimes breaks down into a few yelps and wails and there's even a bit of spanish in there, but when it sounds this good, who cares? Singer James Patrelli uses his vocals as just another instrument; just another texture in the magnificent White Denim sound.
