ratatat: lp3

When I first heard Ratatat’s debut album four years ago, I thought it was one of the most original sounding records at the time. On the other hand, I find myself bored and let down by a sound that I once loved when Classics came out in 2006. So with a not so optimistic mindset, I listened to the duo’s third studio full-length, LP3... and boy, I was in for a surprise! LP3 still very much consists that signature Ratatat style; but this time, the duo experimented with more effects and different instruments. As a result, LP3 has more depth and it (thankfully!) sounds more diverse. I am really enjoying Ratatat's new record at the moment and it totally made up for my disappointment in Classics!

Classics was a big letdown, the new album is sort of a departure, their sound has definitely matured and improved a great deal!
