This album is the result of the slightly surprising announcement that Capital Lights, who officially broke up in 2009, would make one last record. The Tulsa, Oklahoma-based team have come up with catchy last record; rocking guitars and pulsating beats interspersed with techno elements to add to the emotive vocal element fans will be used to. Apart from "Honey Don't Jump", this is a relatively superficial album lyrically, but it makes for a fun listen, with standout tracks "Caroline" and the opening and title track. Some of the songs appear more filler than really adding to the record, in fact, after the first few songs, nothing is particularly surprising, though at times the techno element almost sees the band shift genre into something more reminiscent of how Good Charlotte progressed. So there's a rap element on "Newport Party". Overall, 'Rhythm 'n' Moves' is a reasonable enough set though hardly groundbreaking.
