Passsion Pit - Gossamer (An album review)

Posted by on Friday, July 27, 2012

I saw Passion Pit at Sasquatch Music Festival in 2009 and I wasn't really impressed. It was really hot, my wife's ex-boyfriend was there . . . I just wasn't feeling it. I tried to listen to their album, but couldn't really get in to it.

The other day I decided to listen to their new album, Gossamer. I had reservations going in, my memories from their show, his overly high pitched falsetto etc. But what I found was something totally different and unexpected from my first experiences with the band.
Gossamer is one of the best pop albums of the year. It kept my attention from start to finish. His voice is more refined and the music is catchy without being annoying. For a pop album the lyrics are deep. From what I've read the lead singer, Michael Angelakos, has dealt with addition, mental illness, and other problems  that he sings about on the album. 
The lead off track, 'Take a Walk' is my favorite song on the album, but keep on listening, it gets better as the album takes off. 
You can listen to it below if you have Spotify. 


  1. I had the same experience. I didn't like them when I saw them at sasquatch in 2010. After the show I went home and listened and liked them a lot more now.
