New York's cooler-than-thou quartet (above) took their time recording a follow-up to their fine debut.
It's paid dividends on this startlingly exciting album that offers even more delights than their first did.
Get Myself Into It is a giddy drum-and-bass delight with distinctively yelped vocals. Whoo!
Alright is a jerky indie anthem with bells that could well push the band into the mainstream.
And the Sound is a dirty, bass-heavy funk confection that's instantly memorable.
The Rapture prove there's plenty of life in post punk's second wave.
