Tom Tom Club: The Good, The Bad And The Funky

Tip Top/Ryko

Rating: A-

What a come back! Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth have released a few albums over the years under the name Tom Tom Club. With each album they have worked with an array of diverse musicians. But not since their debut back in ’82 have they released an album that stands apart from the rest. They have updated their techno/funk/dub sound with samplers, turntables and a whole new class of younger musicians. The Good, The Bad and the Funky gets downright dirty with the heavy beats and deep bass. These former Talking Heads know how to make hip-hop fun.
