Best Tom Tom Club Album

City Paper

Not hating, just saying that whenever a band better known for its guitar mettle tosses out an album drunk on bass and synth grooves, it’s hard not to think of those geniuses of love who successfully migrated from jittery to groovy. “Shriek” couldn’t be more post-disco new wave if had James Rizzi cover art, and that’s OK: Rarely does a band make shifting gears sound so smooth and natural. Now all we have to do is wait for producers/DJs to start sampling the beats and fills from ‘Glory’ and ‘Despicable Animal.’
