iTunes Review

The bloodied white Keds on the cover of Sleigh Bells' second album say a lot. They belong to Alexis Krauss, whose waifish vocals battle (and often conquer!) the bludgeoning beats and metal-edged guitar of her musical partner, Derek Miller. Light vs. dark, good vs. bad, and all that. It's Miller's blood—from head injury during a live show—splattered on Krauss' innocent white Keds. After releasing the beast that was 2010's Treats, the stakes were high for this intriguing hybrid, so why not use smart semiotics to lure in curious browsers? Reign of Terror proves there's more to the duo than its impressive debut, with Miller's guitar leading the way and the needle only wavering into the red instead of trying to claw its way out of it. The glammy stomping and swaggering on tunes like "Crush" and "Born to Lose," the melancholic sweetness on songs like "End of the Line," and the faux twee-ness that lights up songs like "Comeback Kid" are all put to work texturizing. Nods to traditional metal bands like Judas Priest and AC/DC are the shiny, spiky cherry on top. A shredding good time.

UNDERSTAND THIS!!!

People need to understand this about this album, Treats was ment to be a fun party like album ,and this album was ment to be more serious and have more emotion. Yes, it is a lot diffrent from Treats , but once you listen to and get use to the sound it's amazing. When i first heard it I was like WOW this is so different , but I LOVE THE ALBUM!!! so don't go complain because it isn't like Treats i would have been pissed if it was

First 6

I the first six song anything after that I'm really feeling. Especially that Road to Hell Song I'm not into that kind of thing.

Unlike anything youve ever heard

Let me start off with, Treats blew me AWAY. It gave me EVERYTHING i ever needed, for a long long time. Then i saw them perform in KC and it was the most amazing show EVER!!!! Then the long wait for Reign of Terror...WELL WORTH IT!!!!! This album is absolutely EVERYTHING! They said that i t would be a heavier album, and they were so right! Heavy heavy heavy guitar, and Alexis's attitude, it exactly what i need. I love SLEIGH BELLS. I will always love Sleigh Bells. Muahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

He found his ideal partner in Krauss, a former vocalist for the teenaged girl group Rubyblue, and the two began creating a batch of demos. The duo signed...
