Editorial Reviews

Fitz and The Tantrums' natural exuberance permeates their new self-titled album, which celebrates walking to the beat of your own drum. Lead singer, Michael Fitzpatrick, says of new record, "We've always tried to push ourselves at every turn. For our third album, we continued to challenge ourselves, taking care not to write the same record again." "Turn It Up," Fitz exhorts at the top of album opener and first single "HandClap." The horn-and-beats fueled track captures the exhilarating sense of promise - and danger - that a night out and a new romance hold. The staccato "Complicated" paints a relationship that's packed with both chemistry and conflict and bursts into an unexpected cheer. Echo and otherworldly keyboards make "Tricky" an intoxicating dance-floor anthem and a warning to any future lover, while "A Place For Us," the album closer, encapsulates the band's belief that there is a place in the world for each of us to belong, regardless of our differences.
"Overall, this is an album about desire - the desire for intimacy, for sex, for acceptance on your own terms and the struggle not to compromise," explains Fitz.
Fitz and The Tantrums was recorded in the band's hometown of Los Angeles. Jesse Shatkin (Sia, Matt & Kim) produced eight of the album's eleven tracks. Fitz produced "Fadeback" while Joel Little (Lorde) produced "Do What You Want" and Ricky Reed (Jessie J) helmed "HandClap."

This is decent. It's not ever going to be call the music that defines a generation or anything. But it's alright. It's alternative pop. It's catchy. It's mood elevating. The band it pretty good.

The lyrics are nothing that I'd call poetry in motion. But the vocal track sounds good.

If you are throwing a party and played this loud, you'd be happy. It's going to keep people moving around dancing a little. "Roll Up" (Track 4) in particular almost forces you to dance as you listen. And their opening track 'HandClap" keeps repeating lyrics about how they can make you clap by clapping in the song....and yeah....darned if they didn't.

So they know how to get the listeners moving. I bet this group would be more fun live, but in a small room, not a huge arena.

No idea what happened here. The funky sound, the instrumentation and the soaring vocals have been replaced by autotune and synth. Also, no idea where Noelle went? No truly featured vocals-reduced to back up harmonies. Lyrics less sophisticated and lots of repeating. The infectious hooks are gone. Still love the band, but this is bland elevator 80s pop. I hope they get it together for the next album.

Note to Noelle: Time to record a solo album, if this is how they are using you.

I love their first two CD's and have seen them live. Listening to this new CD, it sounds like Michael Fitzpatrick may be out of ideas songwriting wise because he was a decent lyricist before. Lyrics here are immature and totally forgettable. Maybe this album was rushed or maybe these guys - Fitz especially - are burned out from the massive amount of touring they have done the past few years. It is okay to experiment and grow but this stuff just sounds generic like most stuff on the radio. Their voices are so much better than this autotuned crap. Really too bad because their neo-soul sound differentiated them from all the bland generic stuff out there. And where is Noelle on this record? Oh well. I'm sure soon Fitz'll manage to license half the record to whatever advertiser comes calling like he did last two. Kinda a sell-out after all.

I have been a fan, like most, after getting hooked on "Out of my league" by constant plays on radio and tv. I bought that album and "Picking up the pieces" and have thoroughly enjoyed both. I play songs from both regularly. I even saw them in concert and they were fantastuc live. Needless to say, I was super excited to see they had new music. I like "Handclap" it's a fun catchy song that gets you moving and hyped up. "Complicated" has a good beat and hook. After those two songs I checked out. None of the other songs really caught my attention. The album is less than 40 minutes long so I'm going to listen through it again, but as it stands I'm not impressed.

I loved Fitz and the Tantrums' first two albums and have seen them live twice. While I understand their sound is going to change from album to album, this CD was disappointingly "meh." The album isn't bad at all - it's catchy, groovy, and easy to listen to. But their very distinct sound and great lyrics have been replaced by this bland synth pop that could be sung by any old band on the radio. The lyrics are so ... simplistic. Fitz is better than this. The worst part is that Noelle's incredible vocals have been minimized to a level where she might as well just be a back-up singer, and that kills me because she is freakin' amazing.

I can listen to the first two CDs all the way through multiple times, but not so much this one. I think my personal favorites on this album are Tricky, Roll Up, and Fadeback, but even those songs can't hold a candle to any on their first two albums. Handclap is good but I'd probably like it better if I didn't hear it all the time anyway. The other songs on this CD are just okay. I want to like A Place for Us more than I do, because that song probably has the best lyrics of any on the album, but I just don't like it that much.

I would not expect to be blown away on this new Fitz And The Tantrums record. It is nowhere near as good as their last album "More Than Just A Dream" I think this record suffers from being too overproduced which is something I noticed on the very first single off this album "Handclap" Which is an okay song and sadly one of the few good songs on here. There is a lot of filler on this album that just passes by me. No catchy beats or choruses that get you hooked in and singing along like songs off their last album. If you're a hardcore fan that is just dying to hear something new from these guys then this album will give you some filling but don't expect to be fully satisfied.

Like many of us, the first song by Fitz and the tantrums that I ever heard was "Out of my League." This catchy tune, with its poppy alternative hook and relateable lyrics wedged itself into my brain deep enough that I needed to check out their other music. In doing this I became captivated by both 'More than Just a Dream' and, their first album, 'Pickin' Up the Pieces.' I read the bands history and had an amazing time playing through their entire library on repeat and learning the band's backstory as well as the deeper meanings behind many of their songs.

After 'The Walker' and 'Fools Gold' made their way to the charts and a couple years passed, I started wondering when a new album would be coming out. After months of periodically checking for any news on this matter, I was delighted to find that this self titled album would be released June 10th, 2016 (over two months away). As the time wound down, I pre-ordered the album and, of course, added 'Hand Clap' to my listening rotation. Though very catchy and fun, I was worried that the the rest of the album might be as lyrically limiting, more pop themed and less about the instuments than their previous two albums.

Finally, June 10th is here and I have now listened to the album in full. What I can say is that some of my worry was justified. As I listened through the album I kept waiting to hear anything resembling a groovy baseline, sax, Noelle Skaggs, anything to break away from the electronically altered vocals and dance vibes that make up this album. That time never came. While some small parts of a few songs on the latter half of the album feature some jazzy flare, it is not frequent enough to have much of an impact on the song.
