唱片的开场曲High Rise即马上以脱胎换骨的新貌而来──流水行云的重复性结他Riff、Motorik鼓击节拍、迷魂的Analog琴音，Ladytron忽然变成了Stereolab？还是一如Daniel所预告那是承袭自Neu!的 Krautrock熏陶？
像新近单曲Destory Everything You Touch，便来得好比Techno-Pop化的Shoegazer曲目，让Daniel营造的结他噪音氛围在歌曲里产生暗涌作用。调子简约的头炮单曲Sugar结集着Shoegazer与Post-Punk/Goth而来的音乐配方，感觉酷似Curve这队当年的电气化而带有Goth血统Shoegazer二人组合。另一曲Weekend亦再次叫我作出对Curve之联想。更何况这次就连Helen也舍弃了她以往“娇的的”的甜美唱腔，而是换来较酷的演绎。
今天在Ladytron身上的八十年代低调气息，那可有见于俨如The Cure扑朔迷离中板曲式的The Last One Standing；Soft Power好比昔日Kate Bush的凄美声音并以Electro手法重整而来，但同时又带着浓烈八十年代4AD厂牌出品的神秘凄迷之感；AMTV有如Young Marble Giants的简约流丽Post-Punk曲式，配上是Mira的低调唱腔。
论焦点之作，那非International Dateline莫属，去年在深圳本色听到他们预演此曲时已留下相当深刻印象。在那脱胎自Northern Soul的清爽节拍下，是Goth式沉实Bassline与迷离的结他Soundscape，而Helen的演绎方法也明显留有源自Cocteau Twins的蛛丝马迹，她们从未如此的迷人。
再听由Mira作冷冷保加利亚语独白的Fighting In Built Up Areas，当中的Industrial-Funk/EBM式节拍，那又何尝不是源自八十年代的乐风。
这次Ladytron的唯美声音，有如斯冷艳而凄美的电子Ballad曲目Beauty* 2，而美丽得没话说的Dream-Pop作品All The Way……更可彰显她们优秀的作曲才华。还有一个小小的惊喜，是CMYK这首只有收录在美版内的简短纯音乐乐章，浪漫优美、窝心非常，但却有着活像早期The Human League的Futurist电子质感。

Buzzy glam rock fashion plates Ladytron came together in a jet-set miracle in mid-1998. Daniel Hunt and Reuben Wu, who lurk in the background playing rhythm boxes and keyboards in the band, settled in Liverpool after a spate of DJ work in Japan and world travel, including a train trip in Bulgaria where they met vocalist Mira Aroyo. Helena Marnie, who also sings and plays keyboards for the group, also joined them and they began work on their first single, "He Took Her to a Movie," which was recorded for 50 pounds. The release brought a wave of critical attention with writers extending into jubilant metaphor to describe the band's unique sound, including one who wrote that they were "...a teasing glimpse of how Britney Spears might have sounded, had she been born in the GDR and a heroin addict."
Ladytron toured throughout the continent before beginning work on their debut EP, Commodore Rock, which was released in the summer of 2000, providing their fans another foray into the noisy world of early-'80s sound. The studio full-length 604 followed a year later, and gained many positive reviews. 2002 saw the release of Light & Magic and the mix album Softcore Jukebox. The group returned in the summer of 2005 with the Sugar single, which heralded the rock edge of Ladytron's third album, Witching Hour. Extended Play, which featured remixes of Witching Hour's singles, arrived the following spring. Ladytron moved to Nettwerk for their fourth album, Velocifero, which they produced themselves.
