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.

Customer Reviews

Meanwhile, "Anxiety" is HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Heard this Album first, never heard of her until one of the online music players threw this on, I was like "What/Who/When/Where was This!! I Must Get This!!"
GForceXL
The LP is still a bit distorted and fuzzy at points, but that's likely intentional.

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.

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).

Heard this Album first, never heard of her until one of the online music players threw this on, I was like "What/Who/When/Where was This!! I Must Get This!!" Then I went to Amazon to buy it, scrolled down to the comments section, and all these comments about "how its not good as the first album", "songs sound the same" ..."i dont..blah..blah..blah..". I Loved it, and I hope it gets more out there so people who love Music can enjoy this. Heard First album, Love That one Too. Great Artist, Great Find! So take a chance, workout with it, drive with it, or jam at work with it. Thanks for Your Time.

Ladyhawke (real name: Pip Brown) released a delicious self-titled debut album in 2008, with 80s-oriented dance tracks, none more than "Paris Is Burning". After touring, and more touring, and then well-deserved time off, now finally comes her second album. Has it really been 4 years already?

"Anxiety" (10 tracks, plus 1 "hidden" song; 40 min.) starts of with a romping, if wistful, "Girl Like" (with the chorus lines "Between the devil and the deep blue see/I saw you dancing with a girl like me/I watched in silence as you held her hand/Sold down the river for a girl like me", wow). The sound is edgier than on the debut album, less dance and more rock-oriented. "Black Whie & Blue" might be ABBA if they started now instead of 30+ years ago. "Vaccine" reminded me of Shea Seger 10 years ago. The best song on the album for me is track 5 "Blue Eyes", sounding like Sheryl Crow on steriods with a bunch of irresistable "Na Na Na Na Naaaaa" singalongs along with some biting guitar riffs. If mainstream commercial radio were any good (which of course it isn't), this song could/should be a massive radio hit. I rate the first half of the album a perfect 5 stars, yes it is that good! The second half of the album starts off with "Vanity", another great sing-along tune. "The Quick and the Dead" slows the tempo a bit, and reminds me of Garbage. The title track starts off with the lines "I take a pill to help me through the day/I sray inside until I feel ok", ha! "Cellophane" is the only slow track on here. About a minute after the 'offical' closing track "Gone Gone Gone" finishes, there is a 'hidden' track ("Human To Me"?), not sure why this was not offically credited. I rate the second half of the album a solid 4 stars.
