With a name like Thunderheist, you’d better come big or not at all. This Canadian electro/raunch-rap duo has already made some noise with the angular, pulsing “Jerk It” and the relentless dancefloor driver “Nothing2Step2,” but the album doesn’t pack the same punch as those early buzzed-about tracks. Too much of this feels done already, in some cases by Thunderheist themselves, considering how little range they show here—low-end buzzing and languid vocals are around every turn. “Bubblegum” never aspires to be much more than its title suggests, and “Space Cowboy,” with its repeated up-and-down runs, is just flat-out annoying. There are good moments here, but not quite enough to give this album the thunder it needed.
