Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs a Net of Rabbit Paths

Fairly Good, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 60
Based on rating 6/10

The third album by Dutch post-punk weirdos Rats on Rafts is partially inspired by the band's 2018 tour of Japan, performing in arenas opening for Franz Ferdinand. Expanding on their previous record's textural noise-rock sound, the long-in-the-making, extravagantly titled Excerpts from Chapter 3: The Mind Runs a Net of Rabbit Paths is an ambitious quasi-opera pulling from Krautrock, psychedelia, and avant-garde pop in the vein of Van Dyke Parks and Scott Walker. Threaded throughout the songs are sound effects representing the elements, ranted narratives, and dreamlike interludes.

The Quietus
Opinion: Excellent

It's too much of a throwaway line to say that with their third longplayer, Chapter 3 - The Mind Runs A Net of Rabbit Paths, it feels like Rats on Rafts have never been away. It's not really the case, either. Still; this new record does suggest that David Fagan and co have turned up again on your doorstep unannounced, demanding to be let back in, whether you like it or not.
