This is way better music than The White Stripes could ever make. DFA 1979 puts together an amazing mix of bass, drums, and synth. This album diverts itself from mainstream with its screeching vocals and power chords. "Turn It Out" and "Blood On Our Hands" have perfectly blended synth and bass.

The lyrics overall came out flat for me. "Black History Month" is the only song that has somewhat deep lyrics. Most of the lyrics are shallow and predictable, but Sebastien sings them in a way that makes it a bit more interesting.
Overall Impression — 8
Death From Above 1979 has put together a good album here. The most memorable songs are "Turn It Out" (for the bass and synth) and "Black History Month" (for the lyrics). The least interesting track is "Sexy Results," which is mainstream and blah. I probably would buy this album again, since the band has obvious talent and potential to do even better.
