The knock against electronica is often that it lacks soul. Not so with this British outfit, which shows real flesh and blood, along with the blips and bleeps, on their sizzling third disc. While there are plenty of club-conscious beats on tracks such as the aptly named highlight "Ready for the Floor," they are just as capable of delivering a melancholy pop ballad like the title cut.

Exclusively on Verizon Wireless.
