The Rapture – Pieces Of The People We Love – Album

by Emma

Released on September 4th, Pieces of the People We Love is the second album from critically acclaimed New Yorkers The Rapture. Their mix of jazz, funky dance beats and hollowy high vocals makes for an exciting album. Get Myself Into It is a big party tune and will have you hotfooting it around the room. This is the first single to be released from the album on August 21st and was a good choice. The title track is a little slower and calmer and to be honest does lack the sparkle that the first track has. Luckily the pace is soon recovered with Whoo! Alright Yeah…Uh Huh, the fabulously titled song which reflects well the upbeat and feel good spirit of this track.

Don Go Do It brings in the electro and the dip in pace and fizz is more than made up for by the very strong vocals on this track, and the cool catchy chorus is great. The Sound seems as though it carries on this theme until you’re hit by a loud noise attack! This style is effective, but personally i prefer the glitzier sound of their dancier songs.

This group sounds good, something a little different to get your teeth into!
