After the runaway success of 2007's song of the summer, "Young Folks", with its carefree whistle and rolling snare, PBJ are back with the promise of more pop magic. The biggest contender, "Nothing to Worry About", scores with its catchy chorus, but soon reaches overkill with try-hard clapping and a screaming choir of kids. Elsewhere, they experiment with Afro-pop and wail hilarious nonsense in the style of new romantic era ballads. "Take a rest with me/ After a long day/ Foot's on the table/ Don't take them down, down, down" anyone?
