5.0 out of 5 stars More Fat Beats From RATATAT September 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Ratatat's second album Classics, is full of energy, but mostly great instrumentation. The music is yet again all synthesizers, drum machines, guitar and bass. But this time it seems that the duo has grow up a little, with a much more mature follow up to the very good self titled album. This album has a lot more substance to it, and is faster as a whole. I got to see them on their Classics Tour and live you can see all the energy that each song has.

This album to me sounds almost like what their self titled album was supposed to be, there are lots of common threads between the albums, but Classics seems to just take the ideas further. The songs also have a more set structure, which makes it easier to get into each song.

All in all, I am a fan of their first album, but would have to say that this album is probably two times my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars So Good You Won't Miss The Vocals April 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ratatat have an instrumental sound somewhere between the softer side of Daft Punk and The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour. Don't let their gruff, hirsute faces fool you, this is seductive background music for a party, a long drive, or anything else that keeps your mind engaged or sets your body in motion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar Heaven November 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have just finished listening to this album. It has moved me. The fresh and unique guitar sounds and synths are such a contrast to most of the music you hear today. Ratatat takes a risk and suceeds with this album. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a "classic" September 7, 2006
By Craig
Format:Audio CD
"If you like Explosions in the Sky, Depeche Mode, and Air's "Moon Safari" than buy this album." I never heard of the band until it was recommened to me from the record store teen and the guy was right on. This is a cool album, very creative and by far one of my best purchases in several years and I own lots of cd's. It lacks the gimmicky pop sound often with electronic music and is not the constant repeating of a looped melody: this keeps the songs fresh after many listenings. This album goes to the top of my list as best of 2006 and will certainly be a Christmas gift for friends and family. If the band continues on this path and doesn't get lazy (like Air and Royksopp) there is little doubt they will be very well known. The next Depeche Mode?? Only time will tell, but this album is promissing and a good addition.

This is such a nice mellow beat set. If you knew of the band before is is one of those albums to have.

The first time I listened, it was good. It was like techno, but fresh, unlike most of the pop techno being piped out of record companies these days. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars This is crack for the ears!
The songs I loved were the usual, "Loud Pipes" and "Twista". Hard to believe only two musicians created this, in my humble opinion, a masterpiece. Read more

Listening to this cd over my Christmas break, as I got it for my Sister it had good rhythmic beats. I enjoyed the cd and what songs it offered.
