le tigre have put out a few solid albums over the past few years. personally, i feel that this is their best album to date. "Deceptacon", off their self titled album, is of course a difficult song to match as far as hooks go, but "TKO", the most radio-friendly song on the album, is definitely a true pop hit. Unlike their previous releases, This Island seems to bring many potential hits rather than just one or two songs that could be released to the mainstream as singles. TKO, Nanny Nanny Boo Boo, Tell You Now and a cover of I'm So Excited are the obvious stand out tracks on the album. Lyrically this album isn't anything wonderful, but you can tell that the band actually believes what they are saying and this is something that is rarely found in music these days.
