  1. These guys have excellent taste, and they construct an entertaining mélange on Tapes.
  2. This mixtape is broad in scope and delirious in flavour. [Jan 2009, p.1222]
  3. 80
    It's an impeccably tatsteful tribute to their record collections, though mystifying they can find no room for anything by The Cure. [Jan 2009, p.114]
  4. We’ll forgive these occasional dips, though, because overall Tapes is so good-natured and inclusive.
  5. Even if the Rapture really hasn't made much music that sounds like this (their rockist tendencies generally get the better of them), it's nice to know that they're in touch with this fact.
  6. It’s great fun, but it’s all boundless energy without centre.
  7. Though peppered with worthwhile rarities, Tapes is too lopsidedly paced to work as a party mix. [Winter 2008]
