At its heart, It's Blitz! is great power pop. The formula of quiet building to epic proportions is perhaps overplayed by the time you get to Little Shadow. Which is a shame because it's a truly moving end piece. Whatever, it'll be interesting to see how they translate this more widescreen sound into live shows. If you add up the sum of its parts It's Blitz! is a triumphant return for New York's finest.
