Foster the People

Foster the People

Torches

★★★/5

 

This is the first full album from Foster the People. It’s electronic and synthy, but remains grounded in perfectly danceable pop.  Torches can seem a little gimicky and cheesy at times, perhaps even unmemorable, but the tracks “Pumped Up Kicks”  and  “Don’t Stop” are pretty good.  But the album does drag a bit, it gets repetitive, and you feel as if you’ve heard it all before, which may not be a completely a bad thing, But it gets strong again on the track “Miss You”
