MikeOOct 21, 2003The Rapture rise above the rest of their dance-punk peers by NOT resorting to retro-band status. I never get the feeling of "DON'T YOU JUST LOVE [I]EIGHTIES[/I] MUSIC??" that ADULT., I Am the World Trade Center or countless other bands fall into. The Rapture realize that guitar/bass/drums just doesn't cut it anymore and they are smart enough to know that with rock in danger of becoming obsolete, revisiting its past isn't the best way to accomplish things. Echoes is far and away the most exciting debut of the year. My only gripe is I think the Rapture may have "blown it" by constantly pushing back the akbum's release date. I mean, it's October 2003. I haven't seen an "electroclash' feature in almost a year.… Expand

The heavy use of cow-bell and some really astonishing bass solos just add to this great album. Every song sounds great especially "Echoes". Easily the standout track on this album. All In All, Echoes is a great album and The Rapture are a really good band. B+… Expand
TimSJan 30, 2004This is a good cd, and its refreshing to hear dance tunes played by actual musicians. Unfortunately, the lead vocalist can't sing worth a damn. Crap singing brings the whole band down.… Expand
BenJOct 23, 2003A very weak album by a fairly poor band. DFA supply enough production skill to pull a handlful of tunes out of the slump, but this is a third rate band making a below par album.… Expand
