    Testament to its addictive charm, Erotic Reruns leaves the listener yearning for an extension to the album’s near half an hour running time.

    Though Erotic Reruns doesn’t have any of the awe-inspiring moments of some of Yeasayer’s early work, it’s a solid album from start to finish, trimmed of all fat and without a bad note. A few more compositional risks would’ve served the band well, but as a whole the album finds the Brooklyn band in top form, packing its nine songs with dance-hall energy, commanding grooves, and song compositions that stretch the limits of pop music while remaining easy to digest.

    Streamlining arrangements and song structures more so than in the past, the album's pop-leaning blend of dance-funk and the softer side of classic album rock is their most accessible yet.

    What the album lacks in fine-tuning it makes up for in sheer experiential pleasure. It’s a half hour bop for the American experiment’s gradual decay.

    A slight and unwaveringly safe 30 minutes, it goes down easier than anything the band has ever done, while making less of an impression.

    For the Yeasayer fans who enjoy their stranger stylings, this will fall out of rotation quicker than others; that doesn't make it bad, just not a favorite.

    These songs don’t live nicely in any genre, and suffer under the weight of attempting cross-pollination.

Highlights include the pop summer gem Ecstatic Baby and the unabashed political anthem 24hr Hateful Live!
    There's something for a fan of any of Yeasayer's eras on this release. Half an hour of pure elation.
