Top 100 Music Reviewer

Ok, so technically this is an EP, not a full album - something which it's 29 minute, 6 track credentials make all to obvious. But I have always treated this like Passion Pit's first album; their defining sound. It's rough, the vocals are (to quote my mother...) "a bit shouty" at times, and certainly more abrasive than the more polished, melodic offerings of "Manners". In this early album, they do sound quite a lot like "Hot Chip" and others of the genre, and less American synthpop, which is not at all a bad thing.

I really enjoy their second album, it's a great example of inoffensive, yet interesting synth pop. Chunk Of Change stands out for me though, it is definitely a lot more interesting than Manners, which I could argue is somewhat "overpolished".

The first time I heard "Smile Upon Me" - the rushing, swirling opening reverb had me dizzy, the insanely catchy synth hook was in my head for the majority of 2008... All 6 tracks are memorable and stand out from each other, each are truly wonderful; the instant techno classic "Sleepyhead" is another highlight.

Passion Pit fans of "Manners" - I would offer a small word of caution; aside from the vocals, very little about the full length album resembles this original EP... I actually prefer Chunk of Change for the sheer toe-tapping factor - the songs are unpolished, "edgier", "rougher" and all the better for it. 5/5
