Bought this album on the strength of the first track Heartbeats and after listening to the Fever Ray album which is suberb. I was not taken by this album at all,it's all downhill after the first track and after several listens its not getting any better. Played loud this immediately came to life. This is a fascinating record from the stomping house of,"Handy-man," to Destroy Everything You Touch - Various - Playlist: October 2005 (CD) beatiful lonesome lyric of the opener,"Heartbeat.
Many people are dribbling all over their laptops and mp3s to that acoustic tune from that Sony advert, by that Swedish guy who sounds like he should really be Spanish. If only they knew, for the Knife's 'Heartbeats' is a triumph for electronic music, as a single it's up there in terms of beauty and underratedness as 'Destroy Everything You Touch' by Ladytron.
Although the rest of the album doesn't quite reach the melodic heights of 'Heartbeats', it is a unique and exciting listen, with dark, sexually charged lyrics. To be honest, it's criminal Mr Gonzalez is gaining all the plaudits because The Knife are an excellent act in their own right.
If you like electronic music with a bit of a twisted nature and oil drums you'd do worse than to take a gamble on this.
Well worth the money! It's got to be one of the best buys i've made in a long while. The first track Heartbeats is excellent and i didn't think they'd be able to match it through the rest of the album, but somehow they did and even topped it! Karin Destroy Everything You Touch - Various - Playlist: October 2005 (CD) has an awesome voice, and the variety of music here is incredible.
Some of the tunes are hypnotic and this is certainly a refreshing change from all of the predictable and dreary music polluting the industry.

Genaugenommen spielte er mir auf Youtube einen Titel von Fever Ray vor "keep the streets empty for me". Irgendwie haben die beiden Geschwister einen Stil geschaffen,der alles vereint.

There have been some comparisons to the sound 'Curve' produced in the early 90's and I can see the comparison but this album is a lot less cluttered and Ladytron have the full poptastic hook-writing knack at their fingertips that always made Kraftwerk stand out from their contemporaries. In actual fact, apart from one instrumental filler there isn't a bad track on this record.

Fast jeder Song auf dieser Platte ist ein Ohrwurm, die Vielfalt ist unglaublich, und dennoch wirkt das Album wie aus einem Guss. Witching Hour on vinyl with good sound quality. The original pressing of Witching Hour was the first lp I bought that was labeled as gram vinyl. It is also the worst sounding record I own; the surface noise is really unbearable.
It irks me that a record company would spend more on heavier vinyl at the expense of quality control, but for them I suppose it's primarily a marketing gimmick. I am very happy now, seven years later, that this amazing album has been reissued on vinyl. It does not weigh grams, but it sounds excellent. Thank you Nettwerk! Usually this formulatic re-invention is too often read as desperate posturing to distance a band from being boxed into a fad of music in Ladytron's case, the "electroclash" tag.
Nevertheless, for the most part, the new approach fits well within the Ladytron template. WITCHING HOUR displays a growth neither of its predecessors could claim, and the pressence of the guitars, Destroy Everything You Touch - Various - Playlist: October 2005 (CD), even when shredding, has the perhaps unintentional effect of warming the band's persona up a bit.
Even when singing about "the snow falling" on the album closer "All the Way", the acoustic instrumentation illumanates a warm glow that runs contrary to the lyrical imagery. The vocals, handled by Mira Arroyo and Helen Marnie, are a bit more expressive than before, partically from Helen. Thankfully the tiring formula of Helen's vocals being echoed with Mira's deadpan refrains has been dropped hear "Playgirl" and "Seventeen" for examples. In fact, as a lead vocalist, Mira is hardly heard from at all and, especially considering her lively take on the Softcore Jukebox track "Oops, Oh My", this is rather unfortunate.
Instead we are left with her passionless narration on "amTV". Her turn at rapping Destroy Everything You Touch - Various - Playlist: October 2005 (CD) foreign tongue on the energetic "Fighting In Helen, to her credit, carries the rest of the album's songs quite well and her singing is more emotive than previously heard.
Cautious fans need not worry, the band's sound and character is still firmly intact. Load more international reviews. This album is in some ways a step up for Ladytron and in some ways a step down, depending upon how one chooses to look at it. On the positive side, "Witching Hour" is warmer and more mysterious than anything they have previously done.
The soundscapes are incredibly lush and sweeping while also dense and fuzzy. This makes for a very interesting listening experience and Helen Marnie's vocals are better than ever.
In a word, WOW. On the negative side, Mira Aroyo is featured on only two tracks and her presence is not nearly as prominent on this album as it was on previous albums. I have always thought that the interplay between her thick, Bulgarian vocals and Marnie's sweeter, more melodic vocals really gave Ladytron an edge. While Marnie has the voice to carry the album herself, she sounds better when complemented by Aroyo and similarly, Aroyo sounds better when backed by Marnie.
Aroyo has always been less vocally prominent than Marnie and on this album she is almost non-existent. One fears that she will disappear into the background as Marnie takes over as the frontwoman of the band. My only other complaint is that I can't quite figure out the hidden track. This album contains a "hidden" 14th track, yet it is nothing but nine minutes of silence.
Perhaps this is supposed to be symbolic? Who knows? It is definitely on my top ten list of albums released in This is my first Ladytron album, and it has really grown on me. There are simply enough good tracks to justify buying the album. What I like about this album is it sounds good on a cursory listen such as in the background whist working, but also has a lot of depth and complexity for more focused listening. Highly recommended.
I absolutely enjoy Ladytron. I could never pick a favorite album or song, as it is far too difficult to choose. I love the lyrics and the cool tunes. This is a harder-edged Ladytron, which appealed to me at first. The typical all-synth mixes now have nice electric guitar tracks. However, I must say that the minimal variety to the overall sound of this album makes me not so inclined to listen to the whole thing at one sitting, because each track sounds so much alike. It's a very downbeat set of tracks a'la Curve of yore with a punk wave influence.
It's certainly a lot more consistent. Even the bad songs are not quite as bad as the bad songs on Light And Magic. There's nothing as grating as the long stretch between "Evil" and "Light And Magic" on the earlier album. Now, however, I rarely listen to Witching Hour, because even though it doesn't have as many lows, it also has very few highs. Nothing swoons like "Seventeen," nothing has the cold, urban reverb of "Flicking Your Switch" or the distant echo of "Evil.
The band deserve some credit for changing their sound. Witching Hour departs significantly from the slick dance sheen of Light And Magic. Opener "High Rise" has exactly the kind of driving, monotonous guitar sound that is typically associated with shoegazing.
The thing is that the band has the sound down, but not the songwriting. Shoegazing bands used that droning sound to play original music. The single "Destroy Everything You Touch" is certainly attention-grabbing, with a typical Ladytron vocal from Helen Marnie -- her voice is harmonious and sounds somewhat empathetic to "you" at first glance, but there's a feeling of vicious contempt when she addresses "you.
The song opens with a watery descending bass line that actually sounds quite original and interesting, but this is quickly replaced by rudimentary pounding. The dance production is good, but the extreme simplicity is a bit unsatisfying. Yes, Ladytron are still a very, very repetitive band. This is more Destroy Everything You Touch - Various - Playlist: October 2005 (CD) on Witching Hour than Light And Magic, because Light And Magic was a dance album, and dance music lends itself better toward extreme repetition.
In rock, one expects at least different lyrics in every verse. The music is similarly repetitive, the same kind of heavily processed, distorted shoegazing drone, playing a basic rhythm. When they try to branch out, their compositional limitations are even more obvious. There are two or three different layers, they play in succession, one replacing the other, and the track ends. The sounds aren't combined to create harmony, the transitions between sections are jarring.
It also doesn't help that Mira Aroyo is almost completely absent. The album ends with three gentle, low-key, slightly sad songs.
This is also a bit of a new direction Light And Magic certainly didn't have anything like itand it's nice to see them expand their emotional range.
This was always a fantastic record with rollicking tracks such "Destroy Everything You Touch" and "International Dateline." Haunting gems like "Soft Power," and "The Last One Standing." The offerings on this album have a distinct early 80s retro flavor and this album is a must if you enjoy bands like Siouxsie or Romeo Void. Remakes Thru Blood Banks/5(79).
