TV on the Radio: Nine Types of Light
Ology: The indie/alternative album to beat in 2011--inventive, dynamic, and endlessly affecting. Nobody's making more exciting rock music than TV On The Radio.
Slant Magazine: Nine Types of Light may fall somewhat short in comparison with TV on the Radio's other albums, but it's a strong, smart effort from a band that continues to push resolutely forward.
Entertainment Weekly: Still, Light shines brightest when it mellows. On the soaring ''Keep Your Heart,'' as the band tastefully freaks behind him, Adebimpe serenades a hookup like a dirty Dr. Strangelove: When he finally learns to stop worrying, it's the bomb
Spin: [T]his album has a there-and-back quality, one they couldn't have pulled off five years ago. TV on the Radio have flashed unknowable cool, have been a troupe for our times, and have shaken their asses to kingdom come.
Nine Types of Light is out now via Interscope.
