The Airborne Toxic Event

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Like many Los Angeles modern rock groups of the latter days of the 2000s, the Airborne Toxic Event feel like a self-contained chronicle of all alt rock trends of the past two decades. On their eponymous debut, the group run the gamut from slowly swirling shoegaze, Ian Curtis impressions, and stately strummed guitars to tightly wound Strokes-ian pop and thumping disco-rock, executing them all efficiently. This placidity is most evident on the slower songs. Airborne Toxic Event are better when they lean heavily on the Strokes' persistent pulse, or when they recycle classic alt rock tropes, not quite making them their own, but at least revealing the depth of their ...

    Airborne Toxic Event

    When I first heard this band on the radio, I tried to figure out who it was. I called the radio station that was playing it but could never get through. One day while I was at Barnes and Noble I heard their song playing overhead and I immediately rushed to the music department to find out who it was. I bought the CD that same day. It's playing in my car all the time and my 4 year old daughter loves it too! It reminds me of the Clash somewhat but more modern maybe.

    A great CD

    I have really enjoyed this CD, it hasn't come out of my CD player in my car much since I bought it.

    great lyrics

    I bought the album for "Sometime around Midnight" i just loved the lyrics of the song, I think they're a great band with quirky songs and real lyrics, and i love that most of their songs dont have a "hook", its just a mini-story. My only gripe is it's just tooooo short, only 10 songs about 35 min long, i look forward to hearing any future (hopefully longer) albums. I totally recomd it, take a listen on Pandora, they have a few on there and then get the CD if you like it.

    Airborne take off

    This is a terrific album, well written and easy to listen too.
    From Cut 1, it sounds like a better rehearsed and more mature Vampire Weekend. Great beats, smart lyrics...and cut 7 Sometime Around Midnight,
    is the years first sing along anthem that stays with you all day.
    I can't get it out of my CD player.
