Thunder, Lightning, Strike (2005)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: Oct 04, 2005; Lead Performance: The Go! Team

The Go! Team are a U.K. collective who chop up gutbucket drum samples, surf-guitar riffs, and cheerleader chants into a funky mess as infectious as the flu. Featuring two songs not on the 2004 import version, the U.S. release of Thunder, Lightning, Strike is full of exuberant, childlike pastiche pop that is the perfect antidote for anyone sick of self-pitying emo boys and stern hip-hop thugs. Guaranteed to spark an impromptu frug.
