We gave it a B+

Loneliness, loss, and the darker side of soul music are the subjects of Telefon Tel Aviv’s second album, a stunning collision of techno blips, lush strings, and swooning R&B vocals. Though the mood is unsettling, it works as an apt metaphor for the decaying of male-female relationships. Not only for the broken-hearted, this is computer-driven soul for anyone who’s spent too many nights in front of a flickering monitor.
