The Rapture: Echoes
Nick Southall, Stylus, 20 October 2003
THERE SEEMS TO BE VERY LITTLE POINT in reviewing Echoes now that it's finally hit the stores; the UK's been able to purchase it for two months now, it's been all over the internet for a year or more, and the hipsters who were so keen to embrace it half an orbit of the sun ago have already stopped listening to it. Discopunk? It's so passé, darling. The Rapture have wowed audiences, made dancefloors heave, rocked festivals — why bother to actually release the record at all now? The important stuff's all been done.
