14 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

A departure from the dark minimalism of LP4, Magnifique reminds us of the Ratatat we fell in love with a decade ago: a playful mishmash of Brian May-syle guitar fireworks, searing synthesizers, and tightly wound beats. Concise, ‘70s-inspired strutters like “Cream on Chrome” and “Countach” are, in fact, magnificent—and the duo brings a sense of adventure to exploratory five-minute-plus tracks like “Nightclub Amnesia” and “Rome."
