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 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.

I came aross Passion Pit comepletely by accident while at work. I believe it was the song "The Reeling" and it was very catchy, but I had no idea who the singers were. After extensive hours of searching the interene, I finally discovered the bands name and looked up their other works as well. I only heard about 5 songs but I was already hooked, however what really grasped me to purchase the album was the album cover; it was so colorfully abstract that it had me to believe that this album was incredible, and luckily I was right. Now I am an avid Hip Hop fan, but I also enjoy alternative pop as well such as MGMT, Empire of the Sun, Phoenix and Foster, The People, so its kinda hard to believe that I've never heard of this band. But like I said, I'm glad i did, this album is absolutely incredible from production to songwriting to melodies, its just a fun body of work. The voice of Michael Angelakos is very high pitched but it sounds great for this kind of music, it actually reminds me of a modern day Bee Gee's. Personally I like some songs better than others mainly because I find them more catchy than others such as the fist pumping "Fold In Your Hands" and the headbumping "The Reeling". Some songs are more mellow like "Moth Wings". If you need music to listen to for a fun drive or the summertime, this is the perfect album.
