The 100 Best Albums of The Complex Decade

99. The Kills, Midnight Boom (2008)

Label: Domino

It's impossible to listen to this album without tapping your foot or nodding your head along, which is strange, because The Kills are anything but cookie-cutter pop. The bad-ass rock duo hews closer to punk and blues, but with a few well-placed handclaps, big beats, and sing-along choruses, Midnight Boom gave their sharp, serrated sound a much-needed accessibility.
