On its second full-length outing for the Astralwerks label, the New York City-based group Radio 4 offers up a tight, confident, and aesthetically varied album that easily eclipses its predecessor. While the band's post-punk influences are still apparent--most notably Gang of Four, Public Image Ltd., and the Clash--the quintet, which boasts new guitarist Dave Milone, works them more subtly into its songs, as immediately clear on the strong opening title track, which features propulsive rhythms, a deep bass pulse, and blistering guitar lines. Stretching out stylistically, Radio 4 evokes early U2-like urgency on "Grass Is Greener," and falls into a reggae groove on the dub-tinged "Ascension Street." The entire record is bolstered by the bold, up-front production of Jagz Kooner, resulting in what may be the NYC ensemble's finest moment.

What the critics say...

Entertainment Weekly (p.77) - "[T]here is a definite funky joyousness to be found in this latest collection from the post-punk-loving Radio 4."
Alternative Press (p.204) - "There's a lot of energy on Radio 4's fourth album, and it's the kind of energy that comes from experiencing punk rock, disco, and the chaos and vigor of big-city life..."
