Customer Reviews

Thirdly, something unique and intensely interesting is introduced.
Ian Nathan
What I love most about this album is that it was great the first time I listened to it, better the third time, and even better the tenth time.
N. Gowen
The music is yet again all synthesizers, drum machines, guitar and bass.

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 better...in my opinion.

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.

I bought this album based on a song I herd on Pandora. I am very happy with the purchase; the rest of the album is great too!

"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.

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.

This is bar none..the best Ratatat CD out there...well worth the money. They are one of the best non-vocal groups around...Ratatat and Rjd2

This cd is great to listen to while you are reading or working on other things. Since it's just instrumental, it's easy to have as background noise. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Came in the mail within three days of me ordering it. Excellent shipment.
