'Rapprocher' is Class Actress's first full album, the follow up to their 'Journal of Ardency' EP from the year prior. Their sound has become more polished than it was on their EP. This makes the album sound a bit more modern than the previous release (which practically could've come out in 1983), but the old-school influences are still highly evident. Elizabeth Harper still sounds lovely, yet she often sings higher in her voice than she did before. As such, her voice loses a little bit of its power when she sings in that range, but she is probably still looking for a perfect formula with what she's got.

"Keep You", the first single from the album, has a chorus that will etch itself into your memory instantly. "Love Me Like You Used To" follows in a more fast-paced fashion. "Weekend" is the album's second single and sounds extremely retro. "Prove Me Wrong" is one of the album's calmer songs. "Need to Know" is one of the album's best and features an excellent Depeche Mode-esque chorus melody. "Limousine" is slightly odd, being a bouncier track, but it is still pretty good. "All the Saints" returns to the upbeat pop of the first few songs. "Bienvenue" is the album's shortest and least synth-oriented track, yet it proves to be another standout. "Missed" is probably the album's weakest track, as it is the most generic; still, it's not terrible or anything. "Hangin' On" is interesting, as it features bouncier verses which meld into a prettier chorus. "Let Me In" is a a lengthier closer, but it ends things off nicely.

Class Actress still seems to be looking for the niche. Their lyrics are rather generic most of the time, and Elizabeth Harper still seems to be figuring out exactly when to use her higher voice in certain songs. If they had focused more on individual songs like on their EP than on a running theme (evident by the song titles alone), this album probably would've been a bit better. Regardless, it is still better than basically anything on modern radio. Keep in mind, this is the band's first full-length release, so unless they hit a serious sophomore slump the next time around, expect the next one to be an improvement. For the time being, though, this is still a high-quality album.
