When I Was Born for the 7th Time

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Cornershop; Genres: Electronic, Rock, World

In the salad bar that is modern rock, these London-based groove-meisters toss up the ingredients with the most joy. Cornershop's third album, When I Was Born for the 7th Time, mixes up hip-hop beats, rock guitar, sitars, scratching, alt-country, and Allen Ginsberg, and few bands make this musical Cuisinart so playful, accessible, and friendly. Unfortunately, the album is also padded with too many tracks of quirky, eclectic filler. ''The funky days, they're back again,'' as singer-guitarist Tjinder Singh tells us, but a return to restraint would be welcome too. B
