4.0 out of 5 stars Almost there..., 20 Mar 2009
This review is from: Return To Cookie Mountain (Audio CD)
"Dear Science" was one of my favourite albums of 2008, and since then I've collected the rest of TV On The Radio's catalogue. "Return to Cookie Mountain" was "Dear Science"'s predecessor and shows that all of the ingredients were there, but they needed just a little more time to properly develop.

There are some superb songs here: The first six songs are absolutely excellent, "Province" featuring David Bowie being a stand-out, along with the album's most commercial moment "Wolf Like Me", and "Playhouses", which I adore but other reviewers here seem to hate. After "A Method" the album does struggle a little, as though after such an incredible start the band ran out of puff, but when the first half is an easy five stars and the second is three, an average of four stars is still pretty good.

A great record, but they were better the next time around.
