Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the acclaimed New Zealand-based singer/songwriter. One of the brightest stars to light up the pop firmament this millennium is back, with a difference. Thanks to her brilliant self-titled 2008 debut, Ladyhawke, AKA Pip Brown, shot to stardom around the world, particularly in Britain and the Antipodes, where she soon gathered up armfuls of awards as THE breakthrough artist of the moment. Her follow-up will surely exceed even those achievements, and establish the wildly talented young tunesmith as one of her generation's most beloved pop heroines. Eighteen months in the making, Anxiety' carries 10 instant classics, each brimming over with irresistible hooks, fresh beats and eargrabbing synth sounds.

I loved Ladyhawke's first album and couldn't wait to hear her new one. I was hoping for a continuation of the debut's catchy songs and synthy music, but with more guitars and rock sound. Well, I got part of what I was hoping for. This album is more rock, it has a lot of fuzzy guitars. But the songs aren't as immediately catchy or memorable as the debut. People are calling this her 90s nostalgia album. I've never been a big fan of 90s music, just a handful of artists and albums from that era. This is better than a lot of 90s music. I can hear a mixture of influences. She hasn't completely abandoned the 80s. There are some moments that recall them, sprinkled somewhat sparingly throughout. I know that if she made another album like the first, some people would be saying she was stuck in the 80s and unable to create anything else. But her debut was awesome. This one is good in a different way.

After not being blown away by the first two singles and reading mixed reviews, I went into the cd half expecting to be disappointed, but half still expecting songs like her debut. On first listen, I was a little disappointed. Several songs seemed to drag a bit, and there weren't really any big catchy choruses. Her voice sounds the same, which is a good thing. There were about 5 songs I liked, and the album's last few tracks are strong. It made me want to replay it. It started to grow on me.

Girl Like Me-The first time I played it, I thought it was a little draggy, and not very catchy. I thought it was weak for an opening track. But it grew on me quickly, getting stuck in my head during the second and third listen. It's one of my favorite songs on the album. It's a cool sounding song.

This is a review of the vinyl LP only - I assume the reader already knows the songs and is just considering a vinyl purchase.

Imo, it's worth getting. The digital copy I have (iTunes, in this case) is heavily compressed to the point of fatigue, so I had risked the vinyl LP in the hopes that there was some relief, and I'm happy to report that there is. The LP is still a bit distorted and fuzzy at points, but that's likely intentional. But the LOUDness is reduced to point that I'm not getting the ear fatigue that I was getting with the digital copy.

It's one LP but a gatefold with a small booklet with lyrics and some short liner notes. The Amazon price is currently $22 USD which is a bit higher than some other etailers, so if you can find it a bit cheaper and have a turntable, I say go for it. I'll also have dynamic range results up on the Dynamic Range Database, very soon - it's significantly different which is no surprise given what I'm hearing. LP was pressed by GZ, btw. No digital download code, if that's important to you.

The only con so far is that my cart (an AT440Mla) is bright and I think this is cut a little bright already - so I actually had to turn down my treble a bit + it I almost had some sibilance at points. I might re-listen with a different cartridge later on, but even so it's still an improvement over my digital copy.

I recently stumbled upon LadyHawke, and I am so glad I did! I instantly became a fan. I know this may sound quite odd; but, I feel like I'm immersed into a vintage James Bond movie when I listen to her Anxiety album. Perhaps there's just an earnest expectation that there's more beneath the surface of perceived reality, and when Ladyhawke delivers - I'm surprised, captured, and blown away. Brilliant!

Ladyhawke, like Mynabirds and The Pretenders before her, is a clever name to cloak a one woman show - and what a show it is. If Lykke Li decided to record a Black Keys album, that gives you just a hint of the magic you'll hear here. Hats off to Amazon for making this import album available and affordable to Ladyhawke's feverish fans in the States. I downloaded it at work and rocked out to it all the way home. It begins with a fury and never lets up. If you liked Magic, Paris is Burning and My Delirium from the first album, the follow-up will knock your socks clean off. Pip has a sultry voice and she wraps it around phat, sputtering beats; dark, grimy guitars and sinister synths. The music is edgy, melodic, with loads of interesting twists and turns.

If you like Robyn, Kerli, Annie, Lykke Li, Lily Allen, Orianthi, The Black Keys, The Dead Weather, Amanda Mair or just fresh, hot music - give this one a spin.

UPDATE: now that I've spun this delicious disc for a solid day - here are some amendments to the above list: Hardcore-era Pulp, Elastica, Republica, Sleeper, Black Cherry-era Goldfrapp - all swirled together into a truly original Ladyhawke sound. This is an intense album - perfect to play loud while you drive fast (at posted speeds, of course).

Like so many others (based on the popularity bar anyway), the Verizon commercial got me into the very catchy "My Blue Eyes" song. But there's so much other good music here! "Girl Like Me" is awesome. "Sunday Drive" is maddeningly addictive (gets stuck in your head while you're trying to fall asleep at night, thanks.) "Black White & Blue" is gorgeous, and "Vanity", "Anxiety" and "Gone Gone Gone", all spot on. By the absence of their mention, there are a couple of near misses for me, but I'm sure others will like them. They aren't "bad", certainly good enough for 3 stars.

So on the whole, this is a spectacular album.

I put it right up there with Metric and Deluka. One great song after another.

Amazing that music with this quality is still being made, and more amazing that it's not all over the radio. WTF happened to the music industry? These people should be the mega-stars of today, not Jay Z and Beyoncé. This is REAL music.

I guess the only place good music can be heard is on phone plan commercials now.
