Customer Reviews

It is very catchy and a great listen.
Iceman Fred
It attracted my attention just enough initially for me to buy the album(and NO, it was the album art that prompted my decision!).
Jefferson E. Schaecher
Now I must say that this album is definitely a grower and one of the best debut albums of 2013.

Just to preface this, I have to say that I'm not a pop person. I don't usually listen to pop music, and rarely do I find it stimulating or enjoyable; in fact, Ferreira's work prior to her Ghost EP is a perfect example of exactly what I hate in pop music-- fortunately, now at 21 years old, she doesn't seem to be under the thumb of her male label executives anymore, or at least not to the degree that she would have been when she was sixteen and releasing awful electro dance music. With 'Night Time, My Time', Ferreira seems to have used her newfound leverage to throw everybody a curveball.

It's difficult for me to pinpoint what it is exactly that I find so alluring about this record, but I think a large part, at least from first listen, is the genius melodies, as well as Ferreira's diverse vocals. The lyrics, as some have said, are sometimes repetitive, sometimes abstract, and sometimes even thoughtless, but there are interesting things going on here all across the board that nullify the record's weaker elements. Sonically, there is a whole slew of '80s synthpop and indie rock references at play, and it seems Ferreira and her producers are wearing their influences on their sleeves. You can hear tinges of Blondie, Madonna, and even Joy Division and Suicide throughout the record, which is an extremely weird confluence of inspirations, but for whatever reasons, it works. Granted, not all of the tracks are stellar; "Ain't Your Right" and "Kristine" are perhaps the most uninteresting; but overall, there is a great collection of songs here. "Boys", "24 Hours", "You're Not the One", and "Omanko" are all killer standouts for me, as well as the sinister closing title track, which evokes Julee Cruise's hazy soundscapes and lifts dialog verbatim from David Lynch's 'Fire Walk with Me'.

*My review was originally posted on joursdemusique.tumblr.com*

Sky Ferreira’s “Night Time, My Time" is an album that I wasn’t really looking forward to, as I’m not a big fan of pop music and I normally just bash people when they recommend me pop music, but one night, I stumbled upon Sky Ferreira’s single "Everything is Embarrassing”, which I fell in love with as I heard the drum machine kicked in and at that moment, I felt as if I was on the set of a John Hughes movie and I was in love with the song. I’ve been waiting for her debut album to release ever since and I have to say, I wasn’t expecting this album to surpass my expectations, but it did and I love it.

The album starts off with the track “Boys”, which to me, is the perfect track to open up this album with, as it displays all of the sounds that are presented in the album and I believe with this song, you can tell if you’re going to either love or hate this album. After the intro, the album presents itself as a grungy pop album, as it takes inspiration from what the indie music scene as showed off in the past years and well, I believe that “Night Time, My Time" is better than anything that is part of the indie music scene. I’m not going to go into too much detail, but I’m not the biggest fan of "indie" music and I think that most of it sounds the same, but Sky Ferreira is able make the "indie sound" actually sound diverse here and each song feels different from the rest of the other songs.

I was surprised by how much I like this. I’m normally more of an indie rock sort of person but this is like My Bloody Valentine gone electro dance-pop. The album is full of dark, moody, catchy songs and I highly recommend it.

Sky Ferreira seemingly has been around a long time already, even though she's still only 21. After a number of singles, one-offs and a very promising EP last Fall called "Ghost", now finally comes the long-awaited debut album of the singer-songwriter. Before we discuss the music on the debut album, sorry but it must be said first: the album cover (a shot looking through the shower door of a topless Sky Ferreira--what is showing on Amazon is a cropped version) is simply shocking and slightly disturbing, frankly.

As to the music on "Night Time, My Time" (12 tracks; 46 min.), it marks the continuing evolution away from the pop sound from the earliest days towards a more indie rock sound that already was beginning to show on "Ghost". Album opener "Boys" is far closer to a Joan Jett song than to that Britney Spears song of the same name. "24 Hours" on the other hand reminds me of the "new wave" sound from the 80s, as does "Love In Stereo", the next-to-last song on the album. "Nobody Asked Me (If I Was Okay)" is another guitar-driven track. The first half concludes with "Omanko", drenched in whirling synthesizers. "You're Not The One" is about as light as this album gets and comes at a welcome time in the album. "Heavy Metal Heart" doesn't sound like heavy metal at all of course. One of the very best tracks of the album is buried towards the end: "I Will", somehow reminding me of Kim Wilde's "Kids In America". The album closes with the title track, the only 'downer' tune on here. In all, this is a very nice debut album, well worth the long wait.
