We gave it a B+

In an era of hyperconsumption, this English ensemble reminds us why overindulgence is fun: They rap, they wail, they bang on triangles, and they never, ever stop dancing. Raiding a cornucopia of styles from garage rock to hip-hop, the Go! Team?s third full-length, Rolling Blackouts, is a breathless mix of scrappy guitars, girl-group harmonies, and funky horns. It might seem nostalgic if it didn?t sound so now. B+
