  1. On Super Taranta!, the NYC-based gypsy-punk crew is as energized as ever.
  2. This is more like their "Give ‘em Enough Rope," a perfectly fine extension of that first energy burst, one that deserved to be milked a bit.
  3. Imagine the B-52's playing a wedding in Siberia and you'll have a loose idea of what's in store on these 14 tracks.
  4. Although it doesn’t attain the career-defining cumulative power of 2005's "Gypsy Punks," it's a broader, more intricate disc.
  5. Super Taranta! is easily the group’s most accomplished effort to date, and an exciting prospect of things to come.
  6. Super Taranta! is an album of such sweaty vigour, spittle-flecked passion, wide-eyed curiosity and a keen sense of the ridiculous it deserves a big fat plug on primetime telly.
  7. Music this theatrical demands a stage. On disc it plays a bit like a conversation-starting party favor: colorful and bright, but no substitute for actually being there.
