iTunes Editors' Notes

What started when Michael Angelakos self-recorded a Valentine’s Day EP as a gift for his girlfriend has now evolved into a Boston-based quintet with a thoroughly amazing sophomore album. “Take a Walk” picks up where Passion Pit’s praised 2009 debut, Manners, left off. But there’s an almost urgent confidence pushing these melodies into anthemic exuberance, as Angelakos sings about building a fortress of love around his family while the economy comes crashing down over them. “I’ll Be Alright” finds Passion Pit at their most experimental, with hyper-edited cut-up arrangements tangling up and then unravelling to reveal an uplifting electro-pop standout. “Cry Like a Ghost” blends Kanye West–flavoured R&B production with a twee-based ballad that’s more reflective of Brooklyn than Boston. But it’s when Angelakos and company deviate from such hipster trappings that the real gems surface. “Constant Conversations” works in heady arrangements and backing vocals that ooze a smouldering groove above its complexities, while “Where We Belong” fuses a Radiohead-esque darkened sparseness with pitter-patter beats and Angelakos’ most soulful singing yet.

Customer Reviews

Best album ever

Amazing. In a time when good music is so rare, Passion Pit pulls it off.

They seem more focused to one direct kind of synth sound for each song...
The early recordings were alot of fun with tons of different samples and patches...
This is album is below average.

Yuuuuuup

Eventually, Passion Pit became not only a vehicle for the romantic expressions of Angelakos' heart but a full-fledged band — at least for live gigs — and opened for a number of well-known...
