4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack for the fall October 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Ladybug Transistor album that I have heard, so I can't compare it with any earlier releases. With that said, I think it's good. Track 5 "Choking on Air" is by far my favorite song off this album. Its a very visual song (if that makes any sense) but I think you have to hear it to understand.
If you are not familiar with this band, I would compare it to Belle & Sebastian's newest record "Dear Catastrophe Waitress" - both have a variety of singers (both male and female) with that sunny 70's AM rock feel. I really love Sasha Bell's voice, so I'm also planning on getting Essex Green's "Long Goodbye" to hear her contributions to that cd.
I rated this CD 4 stars out of 5 because I enjoy it and it definately has many strong songs, but there are a few songs that I'm not entirely fond of. Still, 4 out of 5 is good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss it!!!! February 10, 2004
By Matteo
Format:Audio CD
Great band, great athmosphere, this is for sure an album that you can't miss if you are an indie music lover! The mosaic of delicate sounds, deep voice and excellent strings background make this album more better than Belle and Sebastian last record.
The Ladybug athmosphere remind me the black and white french movies from the 60s. Fantastic!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad album December 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like thier earlier stuff...it's not perfect, but it's kind of sweet. This is just plain bland music. Really really bad. They should be ashamed of themselves and hide in a cave. What were they thinking?

Mad mad bad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not So Hot December 7, 2003
By More M
Format:Audio CD
...And that's a generous 2 stars...OK, perhaps I'm not a big fan of their sound, but I find it hard to recommend anything about this disc. It's mellow for sure, and a little twangy, but you can't call it alt-country. The lead singer pretty much proves that just about anybody with a voice can be a singer. There are no outstanding performances here. What's all the fuss about this band??? You'll probably end up doing what I did and listen to it a few times....but how can a disc like this be anything more than that, to anybody?????
