From the anthemic and commanding “Break the Walls” to the cover of the Eurhythmics’ “Sweet Dreams,” the Los Angeles band offered a high-energy blend of neo-jazz and soul fusion that struck a balance between their older and rawer classics and their new, highly-produced spectacles. Noelle Scaggs picked up what Fitz was throwing down, at times smoothing out his rough edges. The Tantrums’ combination of fluffy, contemplative whistle riffs—provided by multi-instrumentalist James King—with the singing duo’s deep, fervent vocals made for a lively party sound. ★★★☆☆
