Broadcast is one of the few current bands that I give two nickels about, and this disc proves that they continue to evolve and grow. I remember being a poor teen who could only afford (or convince his parents to purchase) one or two 'tapes' a month. Of course, I listened-the-heck out of those tapes, which is something I do less often now, seeing how I have more CDs and less time to listen to them (if only I could make the $ without working). Upon buying Haha Sound, though, I listened-the-heck out of it for five days straight - this disc reeled me in, and I was forced to explore what was going on. Come on!! You can't even tell what instrument is being played half the time, or how it's being played. Some moments on this disc are the poppiest Broadcast moments ever (pop='emotionally affecting', not 'sell-out'), yet others push the rollercoaster of weirdness to greater heights. Broadcast, like every great band, has influences and roots in the past, yet they continue to push forward and create music that couldn't have existed at any other time. This is what, years from now, will put Broadcast heads and shoulders above the legions of revivalists and imitators littering the scene right now. With this album, Broadcast continues to move ahead, while taking rock and pop with them.
