About this item
Since The Rapture burst onto the scene with the astonishingly good "House Of Jealous Lovers" back in 2002, everyone and their dog has rediscovered early 80s punk-funk and slavishly copied the likes of the Gang Of Four for their own (often second rate) bands. With angular guitar shards, shouty vocals and funky bass and drums becoming one of the ubiquitous sounds of the mid 00s, the returning Rapture had to come up with something pretty good to even get noticed. Luckily for us "Pieces Of The People We Love" is not only pretty good but also fantastic and should re-affirm our faith in the New York outfit's songwriting ability, proving that they're more than just skinny jeans and cool haircuts. Essential!
