    You'd have to go a long way to hear a better synth pop album, no matter what decade you examine.

    For the most part, Rapprocher is a tight little album full of melodramatic pop tunes dripping in '80s loving.

    Like the recent offerings from the aforementioned pair, Rapprocher is properly cinematic.

    The music is alive with all the right synth-pop touchstones: lots of mournful, ersatz orchestration; creepy, disfigured melodic overlays; and muscular funk undercurrents.

    Harper recreated herself as a sultry electro diva ... it's a role she plays with panache on this full-length debut. [Dec. 2001 p. 125]

    A return to the coffee shops beckons. [Nov 2011, p.83]

    Were there any justice in this world and this album would have done so much better commercially than it actually did. Glamorous, simple andWere there any justice in this world and this album would have done so much better commercially than it actually did. Glamorous, simple and daring, Elizabeth Harper stepped it up a notch, despite every critic seems to like her previous EP 'Journal Of Ardency' better. Keep listening and growing, bit**es! Expand
