We gave it a B+

Any competent ’60s pop fetishist can throw together a passable Revolver-era Beatles knockoff. But World Party’s Karl Wallinger’s ability to put a fresh spin on songs rooted in circa-’67 psychedelia is a rare and wondrous thing. Soak your ears in the freshly minted nostalgia of ”Vanity Fair” and ”Beautiful Dream” in Egyptology, and you may start believing the ’90s really are an inversion of the ’60s. B+
