Impeccably crafted, dizzyingly diverse and uber-hip, MTMTMK is the kind of album music tastemakers dream of. The Very Best's palette has only expanded since the trio's debut: Guests include Amadou & Mariam and Senegalese MC Xuman, there's a song by Bruno Mars (the chunky, Afro-hop cut "We OK"), and all of it tastefully reaches for the pop stars with dance beats and serious hooks, even as it stays couched in their debut's Afro-pop and '80s cinemascapes. MTMTMK's reach is broad, but the kind of global neighborhood it imagines is inviting, especially on tracks like the joyous "I Wanna Go Away."
