By the music business standards Rapture Ruckus are practically veterans. Releasing their first record in 2010 they have gained a lot of buzz and have seen a lot of exposure in recent years. Most recently they were the opening act for The Newsboys "We Believe" tour. With more and more exposure some have the potential of falling into the trap of playing it safe when it comes to new material. With that, I was a little hesitant on hearing RR's new offering - Invader Volume 2. Will they tone down their sound? Will they play it safe?

I can confidently say the answer is no. If anything I think this new record is more aggressive in nature. The album starts off with a punch with "Fire in the Night". We then are treated with two fun upbeat tracks, “Mr. Roboto” and “Boomerang”. The guitar loops on these tracks are some of the best on the record. The standout track though is "Mindfield." Mixed with gritty guitar and loops, Dave sings about the struggle of temptation in this world. This track is further proof that Rapture Ruckus isn’t just a band that offers loud guitar and drums loops but one that offers thought provoking lyrics that make the listener sit back and wonder how this applies in their own life.

The only minor flaw in this record is the lack of new material. There are 5 original and 3 remixes. I would have loved to have heard 7-8 original tracks (Invader volume 1 had six original tracks and one remix) Here though the new material seems to go by so quickly that before you know it your back to listening to the same songs.

With that aside this is a great upbeat and electrifying record. Rapture Ruckus continues to create satisfying records time after time. Here’s to hoping that the next one will be a full-length record!!
