Rapture - Pieces Of The People We Love (Mercury) 04/09/2006
from a band who've been making heady strides towards commercial success
with their Top 40 breakthorugh.
T: This is a band who are quite clearly heavily dependent upon the booming
rhythm section and occasional Sting-like vocals and compositions. While
all their songs are surefire floor-fillers, I can't help thinking they'd
sound better with a more restrained production. They're definitely a
good, talented band, but I think an almighty migraine would surface
if I listened to more than three tracks in a row from this album.
N: This band possesses a similarity that although I'm sure some of which
comes from airplay, many numbers here ring of phrases perhaps borrowed
from those previously heard by other bands. They've most certainly aimed
their heady brew at a younger listener. 6/10
