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

Just no

I'm so sad! Manners was just an amazing album and so I had high hopes for this! I'm actually gutted and I have found this album dull, all the songs are similar and not one song on the album has me wanting to listen to it over and over again! Manners was always going to be a tough act to follow as its a superb album but this is just a poor follow up and again I'm gutted! :-(

I have a Passion pit for this album!

This album is the best they come. Passion pit really need to be noticed more. I never hear them on the radio and I always want to! Their music takes me to a new word in every song. Love it love it love it! *****

Doesn't sound like passion pit

I've gotta say, I really feel guilty for having to give a Passion Pit album four stars instead of five. I love Passion Pit to pieces, but this album just feels like...... it's not passion pit's album. It almost sounds more like electric president/radical face, which I'm not complaining about because it's still absoloutely beautiful in it's own way, just as passion pit material always is, but I miss the indecisive energy and warped frequency of manners and chunk of change :/

Boston, Massachusetts-based Passion Pit began as a one-man project of singer and songwriter Michael Angelakos to produce a Valentine's Day gift for his girlfriend.

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 artists,...
