  1. Six years later, the New York trio's third LP, It's Blitz!, is only as subversive as its cover image.
  2. Most of that sonic rage is in absentia on It’s Blitz!, which is part OK electro dance record and part atmospheric boredom courtesy of producer nerd David Sitek, who, it’s becoming increasingly clear, saves all of his best ideas for his main squeeze TV On the Radio.
  3. From most bands, half of a great record would be an incredible accomplishment, but we’ve heard so much better from them.
  4. After 10 songs, the digital version It's Blitz! is padded out with four acoustic renditions of songs on the album. But even with an acoustic guitar at the forefront and Karen O harmonizing with string sections and pianos, the songs--and, crucially, the melodies - still don't convey much.

    Awesome dance pop album, even better live. This is definately my favorite record from them and one of the best albums from that year.
