  • Summary: The New York City dance-punk outfit returns with a sophomore album a full three years after their debut 'Echoes.' 'Pieces' sees them ditching The DFA for new producers Ewan Pearson, Paul Epworth and Danger Mouse.

  1. 100
    The first truly great album of the dance-punk movement. [Sep 2006, p.132]
  2. It's good to hear these hip-shaking hipsters cutting loose with such abandon. [22 Sep 2006, p.95]
  3. 80
    Pieces... delivers greater consistency. [Oct 2006, p.104]
  4. It's impressive then, that even with this newfound attention to detail, the Rapture still maintain a flailing energy and enthusiasm that most of the other dancepunk bands could only fake.... However, what ultimately makes Pieces a step or three down from Echoes is a drop off in consistency, reflecting a higher percentage of songs that fail to ignite.
  5. The uniformity of the album is at the expense of clear-cut standout tracks.
  6. Mostly, it's a trip into the not-too-distant past worth taking.
  7. A serious let-down. [Oct 2006, p.119]
