4.5 superbMatthew D. French | July 23rd 12

Here it is everyone: the indisputably feel-good pop album of 2012. Well, at least that's how it sounds on the surface, though it's admittedly kind of ironic to label it 'feel-good' with lines like "Love is just greed/It's almost taking me" and "It's not fair; still I'm the only one that seems to care". Angelakos is extremely adept in fabricating insanely infectious hooks, despite his overlying themes of cynicism and nearly self-pitying nature. And therein lies Angelakos' strongest trait: his ability to keep to his deeply personal side without letting it dominate the music. Whereas Angelakos' emotions sometimes overstepped the music on Manners, he shows more restraint and tact on Gossamer, purging his emotions through yearning and desire tinged with melancholy. Tracks like "Take a Walk" and "Constant Conversations" are wistful pop songs, finding Anegelakos capable of evoking emotion while satiating a craving for hooks and choruses suitable for the feverish heat of summer. It's hard not to get hooked, even when his lyrics seem to completely betray a feeling of immense happiness.

4.0 excellentsarcasgnostic | October 6th 13

Super sugary pop music paired with lyrics about depression, loneliness, exclusion, economic disparity, and disillusionment with the very ideas of love and happiness. Though some tracks might initially be annoying at first, it really becomes a great album when you listen past the sounds on top and really get to the meaning behind the songs.

2.0 poorgooseran | December 9th 12

An album full of half-realized, unfocused ideas lacking the charm of the first one

5.0 classicnickwardmusic | July 26th 12

Passion Pit's third album is clearly a triumph and I enjoyed every track. Though If I had to pick two signature songs from the album, they would have to be the dreamy "Carried Away" and "Cry Like A Ghost". This is undoubtly the best album of 2012.

4.0 excellentsteadyriot | July 23rd 12

A huge step up from Manners. The music is catchy as ever and the lyrics give a good glimpse into a troubled and fucked up mind

4.0 excellentVTHokies | July 16th 12

Not quite as good as Manners in my opinion. A fantastic album none the less. You can tell he is over whatever girl he was singing about in Manners and Chunk of Change. Cry Like a Ghost is probably the best song on the album. It kind of explains all of Manners. I wish that would have been the lead single. A good progression from the past. Some of the more hardline Passion Pit fans might be disappointed in this album. I was a little scared as I am not a fan of Take a Walk. The rest of the album made up for it.
