iTunes Review

On Nocturnes, Little Boots (a.k.a. Victoria Hesketh) walks a fine line between the ‘90s grooves of St. Etienne and the 21st-century glitz of Lady GaGa. She does it with a cool finesse captured in gossamer-light vocals that never lose their teasing charm, even when her lyrics turn angry or wistful. The album’s sleek flow benefits from Hesketh’s recent gigs as a DJ, as well as from Tim Goldsworthy’s smart, incisive production. Built around an after-hours theme, Nocturne takes Little Boots from escapist fantasies (“Motorway”) through dance club romance (“Beat Beat”) and helpless surrender (“All for You”). There’s real venom (along with disco laser effects galore) in “Confusion,” as well as quietly desperate longing in “Strangers.” When she chooses, Little Boots can deliver inescapably catchy electro-pop gems like “Broken Record,” as well as sultry, Madonna-esque ballads, such as “Every Night I Say a Prayer.” She plays the role of club diva with authority (especially in the throbbing “Shake” and the swirling “Satellite”) yet never seems trapped in that role. Nocturne is a smooth yet subtle audio cocktail that will leave you dreamy-eyed after the dance is over.

Customer Reviews

Not impressed

Compared to her previous work, this album feels like elevator music. No interesting hooks, boring bass lines. Every song runs into itself and feels like filler. So bummed because I was expecting so much better.

:):

How can we all judge the album based on 30 second loops? I mean I've always enjoyed Little Boots and once I heard she was doing an album based on Edgar Allan Poe's work I was excited--ofcourse I heard she threw some songs out and recorded new ones. Samething happened to Evanescence, they were heading into a new genre which from the snippets that were released would have been awesome but they scratched that and re-recorded a whole rock one. I'm excited for this album it's been a long time and she deserves a HUGE release! HOWEVER, I am a HUGE fan of 'Echoes' which she has performed live, I was sad to see it's NOT on the tracklist and I can ONLY hope it makes it to the bonus tracks atleast.

Okay-ish dinner party/lounge music

Very airy, shall I say boring collection of songs. Good for background music or for falling asleep to. Try again next time Miss Boots
