Impeach the screech.The Rapture’s uber-cool 2003 debut album Echoes was an acquired taste. Some weren’t able to see beyond Luke Jenner’s tortured vocals to appreciate punk-funk gems like House Of Jealous Lovers. Fortunately the New Yorkers have taken note and the screeching vocals have been tempered by none other than Bono’s singing coach. Hotshot Bloc Party producer Paul Epworth beefs up the guitar, while Danger Mouse – of Gnarls Barkley fame – presses psychedelic buttons. The result is a less angular, more grown-up album - something that won’t rattle your nerves.
The Rapture – Pieces of the People We Love, released 18 September 06 on Mercury.
