iTunes Review

Brooklyn’s Ratatat have managed to create their own brand of electronic music by manipulating some basic “rock” sounds into something that's uniquely their own. Animated guitars and assorted synths and keyboards (including a Mellotron) bend and whoosh, sometimes moving like a Kraftwerk-ian ride on the autobahn, at other times rising and dipping like a rickety roller coaster. On LP3 (yes, their third studio outing) duo Mike Stroud (guitar) and multi-instrumentalist Evan Mast keep the beats flowing with few new moves, but with plenty of devotion to their old ones. The album has a wide assortment of playful textures and ethnic flourishes: there’s a bit of Spain on “Mi Viejo,” and the downtempo “Flynn” glides along on a reggae/dub rhythm while the lively “Mumtaz Khan” exudes a vaguely Middle Eastern vibe. “Gypsy Threat” is great fun, with an assortment of sounds creating a bed of rhythm cleverly layered with a loop of soft vocals. There’s even — gulp —a vocoder on the otherwise groovy “Falcon Jab.” Peppered throughout are tablas tracks, arpeggios of video game bleeps and blips, and even acoustic guitar. This is electronic music with a pop heart.

RATATAT HAS DONE IT AGAIN

This band is by far one of the most underappreciated bands today, which is suprising because they have a sound that could easily infiltrate the pop/rock/club/hiphop/jamband/dance/alternative music scene and flood the airwaves. This cd is a bit different from there first two albums. This is a good thing there's lots of growth clearly expressed throughout the tracks. They have grown but have stayed true to their "older" ratatat roots. I have never been let down by this band and neither should anyone else. Buy this CD it is worth every penny! (BTW First Review!) "

Yeah, this is pretty much the greatest thing I've ever heard.

Good gravy Ratatat knows how to chop it up! This is some of the most unique music I've ever heard - totally on par (and beyond) their first two albums, which I already cheerily spin on repeat. As it is, I now have LP3 to keep things fresh. Every time I play Ratatat at parties someone inevitably comes and asks "Who IS this? I gotta get this album!" Why, YES! YES YOU DO!

disappointing...

i love ratatat's first two original LPs and their mixtapes, but this is definitely weak compared to most of their old stuff. there aren't enough insane guitar parts like there were in some of their old songs (seventeen years, lex, gettysburg, wildcat, etc.). there are definitely a few good tracks (after a couple times through the album, my favorite is mumtaz khan), but overall, i was kind of disappointed.
