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.

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.

Manners by Passion Pit (Michael Angelakos) is absolutely remarkable. The songs, while all sharing that unique Passion Pit sound, are very distinct from one another and come together for a very enjoyable album with high re-listenability. Each song is super catchy, upbeat, and sure to have you singing along in no time at all. This is the first album by Passion Pit and it is actually the last album that I bought for some reason (I bought Kindred and then Gossamer first), but it is quite possibly my favorite album overall. Sleepyhead is quite arguably one of it not Passion Pit's most popular song to date, and the other songs are just as entrancing.

I actually discovered Passion Pit while trying to find bands with similar sounding music to Empire of the Sun (quite possibly my favorite band and who I recommend highly and especially if you're into electronica/dreampop). At first, I was really drawn into his singles like "Lifted Up (1985)", "Until We Can't", "Sleepyhead", "Carried Away", and "Take A Walk", but with each album I purchased, I instantly started falling in love with all of the other songs too.

I give this album five stars because I believe that Passion Pit combines catchy up-beat and full-sounding songs with poppy-yet-meaningful and uplifting lyrics to create timelessly enjoyable music.

I recently attended a Passion Pit Concert At the Greek after seeing the group on Jimmy Kimmel and they were great. Quite a range of sound and styles, some very unexpected as the lead singer will hit highs and sing in that tone for the length of his whole song. Though that is not how his voice really sounds it has got to be allot of effort to do it for many songs as he does.
So I had to purchase their albums as they are the background on many ads both in radio and TV Similar to The Black Eyed Peas and Maroon 5. Very catchy and talented and I hope they produce another album soon as they took quite awhile to come out with this last one which I think they can top if they are as good as I believe!
