The Rapture, 'Pieces of the People We Love' (Universal Motown)

7
Pieces of the People We Love
Critical Mass
Label: Universal Motown

by Michaelangelo Matos

On the Rapture's 2003 breakthrough, Echoes, the Brooklyn quartet attempted to juggle raw post-punk and thumping club tracks. But having ditched production wizards the DFA for a more club-oriented trio -- Paul Epworth, Ewan Pearson, and Danger Mouse -- their follow-up finds a better balance, albeit one that teeters toward a straight party groove. The snarl of their early work may be mostly gone, but cuts like "Don Gon Do It" and "Get Myself Into It" are so friendly only a Scrooge could hate them.
