5. Tremendous Sea Of Love, 2017
“I’ve always felt Kindred was really underrated in general, and I suspect this will get the same treatment. But really, while there’s nothing groundbreaking about anything on here, it’s quite enjoyable and at times atmospheric pop music with a nice glitchy aspect to it that feels raw and the way the music progresses keeps you on your toes and prevents the album from ever feeling boring or monotonous. There’s this unexpected sentimental feeling all the way through that I can’t exactly trace the source of, and it feels genuine and not forced like on *some* tracks in Passion Pit’s previous efforts. The way Angelakos changes his voice with the music provides some unprecedented vocal variety than I feel they’ve done before.”
4. Chunk Of Change, 2008
“Electronically vigorous and dance worthy but no slouch in the heartwarming “let’s cuddle then make out” department. That’s a very important department, mind you. I have no special friend that I could make out w/ right now, but if I did, you bet I would be playing this a lot.”

3. Kindred, 2015
“Not sure how this is the lowest rated PP album, brought in some very nice diversity to a style which would have felt rehashed if it stayed the course that Manners and Gossamer set. This has some of the rawest vocals Michael has ever delivered.”
2. Gossamer, 2012
“For me this album continues to capture the creative tendencies of a man who would probably sacrifice his musical talent and ambition for some emotional stability. It does so in a way that can be played on the radio. It does in a way that makes you wanna dance, laugh and then maybe cry when you realize what is being communicated. The coupling of these features makes this record a standout.”
1. Manners, 2009
“Electro-pop without the sterileness. This album features great and interesting vocals which give a new dimension and edginess to some of the production which occasionally comes close to cheesy, although never in a bad way. Full of massive, catchy songs that’ll take you with them wherever they feel like going. ‘Little Secrets’ is an absolute cracker of a song, something’s telling you you shouldn’t like it, but you just have to love it, it’s one of the funniest pieces of music I’ve heard in a long, long time. If you’re not up and dancing by the final simple guitar riff then you’ve simply got no soul. Every song on this thing moves me in some way, often in a completely different way from the last one. There’s dancy, there’s dreamy, there’s epic, it’s all there. Throw all thoughts out the window when listening to this album, and just enjoy, it’d be darn near impossible no to do that.”
