TV on the Radio, 'Dear Science'
48/100

Infernal visions! Portents of doom! Awesome keyboards! One of the decade's most innovative bands greeted the end of the Bush era with a cry of horror. But David Sitek's production also brought pop clarity to the New York quintet's blend of soul, punk, Afrobeat and doo-wop. Amid the desolation, Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone sang of having sex ("Lover's Day"), defying the man ("Red Dress") and glimpsing better days ahead ("Golden Age"). Alternative title: The Audacity of Hope.
