CD Review: Two Door Cinema Club

Album: Tourist History

Label: Glassnote

Rating: 3

Two Door Cinema Club’s debut LP, Tourist History, is a neat and tidy collection of their past Kitsuné singles and a handful of new ones. Simple lyrics are tacked onto simple pop melodies, which clasp onto even more simple rhythms and beats. The album mainly consists of unornamented and straightforward compositions, but the sincere and charming lyrics seem to pick up the slack.

If Tourist History were milk, it would probably be non-fat – in the sense that extra sugar was added to make up for the lack of nourishing substance. Listening to the entire album is like eating a $1 microwave dinner from Safeway. Sure, it gets the job done, but there are definitely better things out there.

Give these tracks a listen: “Eat That Up, It’s Good For You”

For fans of: Kowalski, Delphic
