EDITORS’ NOTES

TEEN have played with several styles over the years, from rubbery, Erykah Badu-style R&B (The Way and Color) to punky psychedelia (In Limbo). Love Yes finds the Brooklyn quartet settling on shimmering, atmospheric New Wave that’s part-Prince, part-Bangles—artists whose nervy energy always had a sexual edge. Opening with a loping, dreamy story of an unfaithful husband reckoning with middle age (“Tokyo”), the album explores variations on a theme of desire, from the primal thump of “Animal” to the alien power ballad “Another Man’s Woman,” two highlights that prove the band hasn’t been messing around so much as slowly refining their sound.

Animal 🙄

This song alone ruins the entire album, this is the most annoying, awful song I've heard in my entire life. The only reason I've heard it in the first place is because it plays at my place of work constantly and is almost suicide inducing. The main focal point of the song is a heavily detuned crappy synth that makes ones ears bleed. Do the world a favor and remove this song from existence.
