is Passion Pit's most promising and robust release to date. Michael Angelakos has proven that his brain has an impressive cache of catchy, unique melodies to sprinkle with his trademark electronic sauce, instead of relying on the gimmick for the flavor. Once you skirt past the gummy, mass appeal of opener "Take A Walk" -- with its oh-so-timely financial-crisis minded lyrics -- the world of Passion Pit opens up into something epic and viscous. "Take A Walk" almost feels like a soft opening for the true album. Gossamer
is an infinitely compounding sonic journey -- audible fractal art, full of sounds built for your WinAmp visualizer as much as your heart-parts.
