!!! Myth Takes
- Words: Rico "Superbizzee" Washington
- Label: Warp
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Post-punk dance-rock jam bands just don't get enough respect for their sheer wizardry. !!! reaches into its trick bag again, emerging with another handful of dancefloor ass-shakers that conjure up The Clash and Talking Heads. Juggernauts like "Bend Over Beethoven" and "Heart of Hearts" keep the party jumpin' with plenty of syncopation and dirty basslines. As delicious as it sounds, Myth Takes grooves like an e-addled lap dance from an android in a demented strip club. Strap in for a helluva ride!
