It's All True
Critical Mass

by SPIN Staff

Since 2004's Last Exit, Junior Boys' main man Jeremy Greenspan has couched his plaintive voice in various strains of modern electronic music, flitting between 2-step and synth-pop, with diminishing returns. But after a sojourn through China, Greenspan sounds rejuvenated, moving from the tricky pulse of "Kick the Can" to the slinky beat of "You'll Improve Me." There are moments of tedium (the deceivingly titled "Playtime"), but on nine-minute closer "Banana Ripple," Greenspan's ?falsetto dovetails with a ?silvery guitar line and ?melodic progression worthy of New Order.
