If you like happy emo music this is the album for you.
Sam
Although every song is good (like, REALLY good) the songs that stand out even more-so would be "Make Light", "Moth's Wings", "Eyes as Candles", and "Seaweed Song".
Ethan B.
I like any band that blends different styles but somehow makes it their own....and clearly that's Passion Pit.

Look, I'm nearly 60 years old. Classically trained musician. Non-drug user. But I got this CD and Passion Pit's 'Manners' is really fine. Highly recommended. In my own way, I get it.

The music in this album is some of the best electronica I've heard. It's about the music. I highly recommend this album to those who like this type of alternative rock, but also to those who haven't given the genre much of a chance (i was one of you!).

Having the booklet might be important, but I can't believe some of the reviews here are bad just because of a missing booklet.

I feel "Sleepyhead" is in the top three best songs of 2008. I feel "Sleepyhead" is in the top three best songs of 2009 [thus far]. Confused yet? Well, "Sleepyhead" was originally released last year on Passion Pit's debut EP "Chunk Of Change" and has been brought back with some slight alterations to this debut LP. Not much is different but there are enough changes to reestablish my proclivity to leave this song on repeat again after completely playing it out last year. It's basically all the same patterns and effects. However, levels have been adjusted for the better. For instance: some of the samples have been slightly muted, while others have been seeming thrust into different channels, which to be truly appreciated should be listened on a surround sound setting. The most notable difference is the extremely well timed bass has been turned up. It adds more depth to the song (especially in the bridge and chorus) and allows it to rise above the previous version which will now likely be considered a demo version.

As far as new additions go, nothing is slacking here. "Moth's Wing" is spectacular. The chorus is so climatic and it's sporadic which helps make this song a notable listen to the very last second. "Eyes As Candles" briefly starts off a tad bland with a simple drum beat and organ pad. However, it quickly gets interesting, and after the first chorus takes you somewhere serendipitous, the song reintroduces the hypnotic bass melody for the second verse. I'm not sure I've heard a more melodic moment on an album this year. Listen to this song in your car and tell me you don't catch yourself subconsciously singing the "na na na-na-na-na, hey hey heeeey" and I will instinctively check your pulse for a beat.

Not that I really cared to get the booklet, but with all the comments warning that it doesn't come with this album, I thought I'd share that my Amazon download came with a PDF booklet, just as advertised. Not sure what went wrong for the other reviewers...

Enjoy the music, its fantastic!

I bought `Manner's based on an Amazon recommendation and I have to say I am thoroughly glad I did. To call this a feel good album would be an understatement. This band is wonderfully fresh and original and have their own unique style that manages to make you smile and sing along after only a few listens of the CD. Standout tracks for me have to be `To Kingdom Come' and `Sleepyhead' (which is also on their debut EP Chunks of Change) which has the most infectious chipmunks sounding vocals on it! The lead singer sings in falsetto style at times and the lyrics are pretty `out there' but they suit the music and lend the whole album a certain charm. This is a short album, but perfectly crafted and the more polished production suits this album perfectly (their EP was produced at home on a laptop and whilst good, you can tell this album is better produced). If you like slightly indie, lo-fi, low key, original bands then this is the place to go and at least you can say you were in on them from their early albums before they undoubtedly get huge!

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

I remember when MGMT's cd came out and while I like their two popular tracks, "Time to Pretend" and "Kids" the rest of their stuff just didnt do it for me. Then by surprise, along comes Passion Pit. I first heard and we all first heard them when that awesome some on the Sprint Palm Pixi commercial came out months ago, that turned out to be "Sleepyhead". I then found their myspace page and listened to their whole album "Manners". What an awesome ablum. It's rare these days to listen to a cd that every track, every track is good in their own right. That's what you get here. While Passion Pit does dip into nostalgia of the 80's, with tons of Synth and electro beats, they have found a voice all their own, and I think it's in part to the vocals/voice of their singer. It's high pitched, but it somehow works. They just stand out in my opinion on the indie electronic scene, which is where you'll most likely find them, but they clearly can become a hit with many music listeners from many backgrounds. I like any band that blends different styles but somehow makes it their own....and clearly that's Passion Pit.

Standout tracks:
Sleepyhead
Til Kingdom Come
The Reeling

Then again...like I said, they're all good tracks. Listen and enjoy and bounce to the beat.

I had never heard of Passion Pit until I saw the trailer for Life as We Know it and managed to track down which song was used in the trailer thanks to the good old internet.
The cd is amazing and I am so in love with the song Moths Wings, like someone else said the ending builds up beautifully.
Buy the cd if you like music that will touch your soul.
