The duo of Evan Mast and Mike Stroud returns with their aptly-titled fourth album, LP4. I learned that this album is best played loudly on a decent stereo system. Your computer speakers just will not do. I also learned that I still think Ratatat’s first two albums are their best efforts. Sure, LP4 is good (“Drugs” is pretty great) but nothing on it holds a candle to previous songs like “Loud Pipes” or “Breaking Away”. There are many people who say that this newer, more mature Ratatat is better but I simply cannot agree. Ratatat, we can still be friends, but my fondest memories of you lie in our past adventures together.
