The Sound of Music by Pizzicato Five

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Pizzicato Five; Genres: Electronic, Pop

Pizzicato Five: The Sound of Music by Pizzicato Five (Matador/Atlantic) This ebullient Japanese outfit's bag of tricks includes disco rave-ups reminiscent of Deee-Lite, Burt Bacharachesque crooners, and hyperactive new-wave stylings. While their retro tendencies lend a patina of kitsch to the proceedings, they go at it with a sophistication and polish that sidesteps cheese. In other words, they mean it. B+
