We Are Scientists – Brain Thrust Mastery

May 13, 2008

Brooklyn based band We Are Scientists (Keith Murray and Chris Cain) follow up their winning debut with this second album of 80’s New Wave inspired music. Guitar rock and synthpop are pretty evenly distributed throughout the 11 tracks included here, with Sparks being the band that mostly comes to mind as being a possible major influence, as they share that band’s penchant for the satirical and the goofy, as well as their love of a good hook. Not all the material hits the mark, but in general Brain Thrust Mastery is a witty good time from a band that thankfully doesn’t take much seriously, except maybe showing their listeners a bit of fun. Standout cuts: “After Hours,” “Lethal Enforcer,” “Impatience” and “Chick Lit.”
