14 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

A departure from the dark minimalism of LP4, Magnifique reminds us of the Ratatat we fell in love with a decade ago: a playful mishmash of Brian May-syle guitar fireworks, searing synthesizers, and tightly wound beats. Concise, ‘70s-inspired strutters like “Cream on Chrome” and “Countach” are, in fact, magnificent—and the duo brings a sense of adventure to exploratory five-minute-plus tracks like “Nightclub Amnesia” and “Rome."

Rejoice

Celebratory bowls will be packed!

Sir Mister ,

"Magnifique" living up to its name

Rarely is music so well crafted, with such raw talent and vibrant energy that it brings tears to my eyes, but Ratatat has this effect on me. It's like these guys were bred in some offworld alien labratory for the sole purpose of maximizing their genetic structure in such a way that yields a musical gift the likes of which has never been witnessed by mankind. These guys are a true phenomenon. I will love them forever.
