Editors’ Notes

Liverpool’s exciting synth-pop explorers head into airy mountain vistas with their fifth album, 2011’s excellent Gravity the Seducer. Each of their releases has brought their sound to new conclusions and this one is no exception. The dark mysticism of “White Gold” alone is reason to stop and listen. Its moody swaths of synths burn like blistering light through the ice caverns, while “Ace of Hz” turns even the group’s pop moves into ethereal meditations. “Ritual” bounces onto the dancefloor with an ominous hangover. “Moon Palace” sounds like a pop tune deliberately frozen over and thawed anew. “Melting Ice” continues this theme, with a vibe that’s pure Siberia for the dancefloor. (Nothing melting here.) The group’s electro-clash Euro-disco is a powerful weapon; however, the band are hesitant to go for an easy score. “90 Degrees” moves with a haunted mood. “Aces High” uses the melody for “Ace of Hz” as an instrumental to pull the entire album together as a conceptual whole.

This is by a long mile, the best Ladytron album to date. It is extremely listenable.
They just keep getting better and better!

Chilled Ladytron..

This is more chilled than previous offerings.
I prefer the more tuneful 'Witching Hour' or the energy of 'Velocifero'.

This album feels a bit Ladytron-by-numbers. The usual Ladytron schtick is there, but for some reason this album leaves little lasting impression with me.

"Mirage" is probably the stand out track, and a couple of the instrumentals hark back to Bowie's Berlin trilogy of albums in style. I recall reading that lead single "Ace of Hz" was a left over from the "Witching Hour" album sessions, and I can't help but think that the rest of the album might be the same, such is the lack of innovation or, indeed, overall quality of songs.
