Magnifique is the fifth studio album by Ratatat, released on July 17, 2015. Ratatat began touring in early 2015 with limited stops in the midwestern US and the Coachella music festival where new songs were debuted. On April 12, 2015, the band released "Cream on Chrome", the first single from the album. On June 16, 2015, "Abrasive" was released as the second single. The album features a cover of the 1971 Springwater single "I Will Return" and cover artwork collage sketches by Evan Mast and Mike Stroud.

This is Magnifique's real issue: It’s not that the album is bland, it’s that it doesn’t really do anything or go anywhere. No matter how skillfully they may blend sounds, like on the dense "Abrasive", or the playful if thin "Cream on Chrome", or the lite-funk of "Countach", nothing leaves an impression. Nightclub Amnesia" works itself into a nice groove, complete with one of the album’s most memorable riffs, but it’s also hard to imagine the song working on any dancefloor or anywhere else than the tamest apartment get-together.

referencing Magnifique, LP, Album + CD, Album, BEC5156160. bad pressing imo, but i've only heard my copy. This album is Ratatat getting back to their roots! Manys tracks remind me of their first two albums Self Titled & Classics.

Album · 2015 · 14 Songs. 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".

The precise beauty of their production work, specifically the refusal to dump gratuitous instruments into the mix, places Magnifique at the top of Ratatat’s catalogue. Stroud and Mast let guitars beat at the album’s heart, and their balance of bubbly and peaceful elements ushers a return too fluid to ignore.

After their last album, Ratatat struggled with perfectionism. In a recent interview, they explained that during the Magnifique sessions, the two musicians hashed out material they couldn’t help but hold a knife to. Their own creative process stressed them out to the point of tossing out 50-something tracks. That precision can be heard within each song’s miniature moments.
