Listening Party Album Of The Week #6: The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike [Electronic Rock] (2004)

Welcome to /r/music's weekly album discussion thread.

Every week we discuss an album nominated by the users. The album chosen will be featured on top of the page. Users can nominate albums for the next week and the highest rated comment will be the next week's AOTW. However, in order for a nomination to be valid, you must contribute a relevant and thoughtful comment to the current album discussion.

Background

Thunder, Lightning, Strike is the debut album by The Go! Team. It was released on British label Memphis Industries in 2004 and was nominated for the 2005 Mercury Music Prize. The album was re-released in the UK and the US by Columbia Records in October 2005. It was slightly remixed (due to sample clearance issues) and contains bonus tracks. It peaked at No. 48 in the UK in February 2006, some 18 months after its original release. It was co-produced by Ian's brother, Gareth Parton in their parent's garage in Swansea and mixed at The Fortress Studios, London

Guidelines

This is your opportunity to be a critic. Don't just say you like the album or hate it. Mention why or how and avoid vague statements of praise or criticism. How has this album impacted music as a whole? What were it's influences? Any glaring flaws? Any remarkable traits? Be elaborate.

If you're late to the thread, don't worry. Comment sorting will be set to new so everyone has a fair opportunity to share their thoughts. Discussion throughout the week is encouraged!

For nominations, we will be discussing music across all eras, genres and regions. Unless explicitly stated that we have a theme for the following week, feel free to nominate any album you feel deserves discussion. The only restriction is that you can not nominate an album that has been discussed previously or one by an artist in the /r/music hall of fame.

DON'T FORGET TO NOMINATE AN ALBUM
