Rolling Blackouts is the third studio album by English band The Go! Team. It was released by Memphis Industries on 31 January 2011 in the United Kingdom and on 1 February 2011 in the United States. All tracks written by The Go! Team, except where noted.

Rolling Blackouts is still very much lots of music for lots of people, and noisy, but there’s a real fluidity to it, and that’s good: it’s great to write marching pop anthems, but it’s better to keep the march going, and for that reason the Go! Team have created a very impressive body of work. I was so excited when this leaked, I couldn't wait to listen to it.

Rolling Blackouts’ essential problem is that The Go! Team has not found one meaningful way to evolve their sound past their critical-darling debut. That works for a sophomore record, as Proof Of Youth somewhat represents the exuberant highs of the band, but three records deep the sheen has worn off.

rolling blackouts,' intentionally ironic album title aside, is anything but. to the uninitiated, the go! team may be a bit to understand.

Brighton collective The Go! Team have always existed on their own terms. Team as well as continue the groundwork already achieved by its two forerunners. What's more, their "Back To The Future" style approach to songwriting and orchestration is a blessing for a music industry seemingly intent on returning to the basic of Britpop in 2011.
