Ladytron - Witching Hour Review
By Morley Seaver

.
I've heard about Ladytron for a few years now but this is the first time I've heard them. They have a really strong sound about them that sounds like New Order on steroids, with shades of My Bloody Valentine. There is a wispiness about them that is oddly symbiotic with the beefy synth lines.

The thirteen tracks are almost hypnotic, all locking into a deep groove like a dancing coma. The vocals, while trance-like, provoke a-German like feel to them, although I can't say exactly why. I like the second half of the record more than the first. Cuts like "Weekend" and "The Last One Standing" are quite strong. And the electro-ballad "Beauty 2" is quite beautiful.

If there is one draw-back to the record, it's that to me, a lot of the cuts all sound quite similar. To fans of the band, however, that's probably one of their endearing qualities. Regardless, this is a satisfying collection of songs that can induce body arrest when played at high volumes. This would be great in a live setting.
