Titus Andronicus: Local Business
Buy! - (XL)
This New Jersey band’s third full-length mostly trims the sweeping sprawl, dense production and high-minded metaphors of 2010’s acclaimed concept album The Monitor in favor of a cleaner and slightly more polished sound, generally more compact songs, less ragged singing and more personal and direct lyrics. The band’s music, however, hits just as hard as before, combining stirring folk-influenced melodies and energetic rhythms with anthemic song hooks and raucous sing-along choruses on songs that tackle life’s absurdities and injustices along with failings both personal and universal with a smart balance of bitter angst and irreverent humor. 10/19/2012 - Don Yates
