Published October 30, 2003.The RaptureEchoes (Universal)On Echoes, The Rapture turn in an album of great music with excellent influences. Play it for any self-important record snob and watch as a single tear crosses their usual demeanour of irony and poor hygiene at the band’s subtle peppering of Gang of Four, Television and Neu! references. Highlights are “Open Up Your Heart” and “House of Jealous Lovers,” en-capsulating the range the band can achieve without letting its focus dwindle. With Echoes, The Rapture is sure to please everyone. —Matt Charlton
