I was lucky enough to be in the UK when TV on the Radio’s latest album Return to Cookie Mountain came out over there, a good few months before the delayed US launch. As I drove around visiting my family this album was on almost constant play, but for some reason it didn’t grab me as much as the amazing Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes – with classic tracks such as Ambulance & Dreams.
Well it’s been a good six months or so now since I first heard it and now I have to say that Return to Cookie Mountain is rarely off my iPod now. I’ve never had an album that grows on you as much as this, and it’s not like I started out hating it. Every time I listen I hear different nuances and subtleties. So if you don’t have it go and get it now!! Enough fan speak now.
