    Leaving the worst label going today (DFA) was the best thing The Rapture ever did. Where Echoes was the sound of every David Cross fan moaning into a microphone, Pieces... is the sound of a Peaches dance party sponsored by Vice. An improvement but not much of one.

    Almost anyone can play Cowbell, and not everyone can sing including this weak, flacid Rapture vocalist who nearly misses every note. He could probably fart more in tune or at least be on beat with that annoying cowbell; complete Crapture.

    Cheap music for cheap people...The cover, the new video, even the single is a ridiculous tune...Straight to the bin

    aside from the single, this album is just really bland. plus i've met these guys and they're huge pricks.

    The Rapture made two decent ep's for Gravity and Sub Pop before catching a meal ticket with indie rocks answer to Pharrel and making the most embarassing album of their career (Echoes). Now, they've ditched DFA and, to celebrate their independence, have made a puff of air every bit as generic and derivative as the other two aforementoined hacks. Depressing.

    The first truly great album of the dance-punk movement. [Sep 2006, p.132]
  2. Lots of cowbell, lots of bass. [21 Sep 2006, p.82]
  3. The uniformity of the album is at the expense of clear-cut standout tracks.
