The Go! Team have answered any skeptics who doubted their abilities to create something as imaginative as Thunder, Lightning, Strike. The band is back with a brand new record entitled Proof of Youth; the record features the oh so loveable Go! Team sound: cheerleaders-istic chants mix with electrifying kung-fu fighting energy! Proof of Youth begins on a powerful note with the triumphant girl-power-rap-off in "Grip Like A Vice" and the courageous "Doing It Right" to follow. Meanwhile, the 70s' funk/disco sounding "Titanic Vandalism" and "The Wrath Of Marcie" could easily end up in a Tarantino film one day. The surprise/highlight of Proof of Youth has to be Chuck D’s guest spot on "Flashlight Fight". Well actually, to be honest, it is not really surprising that the two forces joined together. It is no doubt that The Go! Team is hugely influenced by 80s' hip-hop, so it is only fitting to invite the legendary Chuck D to rap on one of their songs. In the end, all I have to say is: Public Enemy + The Go! Team = perfection! The new record features a brilliant balance of different musical elements, perhaps even more so than Thunder, Lightning, Strike. The bottom line is, there is only one word to describe Proof of Youth: FUN!!!
Grip Like A Vice [wicked-cool song]
Universal Speech [wicked-cool song]
Flashlight Fight [wicked-cool song]
