Album Rating: 2.7

Following the departure of cellist & backing vocalist Alexandra Lawn, Syracuse based outfit Ra Ra Riot undergo a near complete reinvention on their 3rd LP 'Beta Love'. Abandoning their baroque style of indie-pop for new-wavey synth-pop, the band appear to be looking to cash in on some mainstream accessibility. Unfortunately, this is a dated bandwagon they are looking to hop on, with the jarring change likely to alienate many fans. There may be some catchy tunes here, but this uninvolving & front-loaded LP fails to hold together for its brief 30 minute run-time. Not awful, but very disappointing. Recommended Tracks: Binary Mind, Angel Please & Beta Love.
