A Magnetic synthpop revival. The music we've all grown to love is not what it was in the earlier 00's; roughly between 1998-2004 (especially Uk dance artists) there was Dannii Minogue's Neon Nites in 03',Holly Valance's State Of Mind in 02', Kylie's Fever in 01', Body Language in 04', Rachel Steven's Come And Get It in 05' and so many others I'm failing to mention. Unfortunately, today many UK songwriters and producers have been overexposed to the US pop system and vise verse. This has demolished the flare that UK pop once had not so very long ago. The beats were more obscure and advanced in comparison to what we were familiar with in the states. The results are; tragic, overproduced and tasteless nonsense that generally showcases nothing at all. Nocturnes, and anything else released by 'boots since shes been out takes me back to a time when euro-pop had an extra kick that was always missing from american pop-music with thr exception of anything Madonna's music; but even she's a nightmare now!

Nocturne's is the best dance collection by a female artist that I've heard since Confession's on a Dancefloor in 05'. There's an intense 80's to early 90's influence with a clash of synthy and digital sound effects that add the extra punch to the tracks. 'Shake' has the most wicked bassline of the album; the beat drops at 1:03 and instantly you're transported to electronic/house heaven. 'Every night I say a prayer' has the upbeat and stylish Vogue-like quality that was present in Lisa Stansfield's songs 'People hold on' and 'This is the right time'; The cold-cut sound. The most enjoyable track for myself at the moment is the very last one; 'Satellites'. Her deep contralto tone, the aircraft sound effects and clusters of synthesizers are like watching fireworks expload.

But that's because she consistently writes some of the best electronica/dance music I've ever heard and I adore her voice. Not a single bad track on the album.

I've always had a soft spot for this type of dance, retro style, ambient type club music. As long as it has power and soul, i dig it. Even though i'm a metal drummer, and listen to a lot of thrash bands, and newer metal, this stuff is great to unwind. And just shut off the lights and chill. I wasn't a Madonna fan until she did Ray Of Light which had a darker almost pop-goth vibe, this is very reminiscent of that. Little Boots (whatever her real name is) definitely knows how to give you that nice ambient soothing quality in her voice and her song structures (arrangements). Her voice even sounds like Madonna, with a little bit of a different twist. NO she's not a clone. But she's what i'd call the second coming. ;o) All the songs mold together very well, with top notch production. This is a great album to drive at night to, watching the road come towards you in the dark with this playing is like being in space. Not to sound like some acid tripper but it really does put you in the moment. So congrats to these boots, these boots ROCK!!! Nothing bad to say about a single song. She needs to come to America and get even bigger is all i have to say. I hope her boots get to be BIG BOOTS Adios ;o)

Since its release in 2010, I've played Little Boots' first release "Hands" many, many times. Great album. As such, I waited three very long years for her second release. I was excited to hear what she'd accomplish. I was also nervous since many artists are never as good as their first album. "Nocturnes" is awesome and well worth the wait.

There are a few things that I appreciate about Little Boots. I like that you can get a sense of how her music is created. When "Motorway" became available on SoundCloud, it had a harsh, angular feel to it. However, I have become accustomed to hearing mixes and versions of the same song that improve over time. The album version of "Motorway" has the same vocals and instrumentals, but the mix is much more subtle and smokier. I appreciate Victoria's attention to production values and her command of the process.

Prior to the release I heard references to this album being "darker." To me, that often means depressing and self-absorbed along the lines of the Goth Kids characters in South Park. This album isn't like that. I would say that it is definitely a night album, but there are a lot of hooks and beats that will get your body moving, and not just shuffling your feet.

Victoria has matured in the past three years, the result of that is all to the good. "Nocturnes" is smoother and more complex in the best sense of those words. I've only listened to this album twice so far, but I've only had it two days. If you're a Little Boots fan I predict that you'll really like this album. If your just finding out about her, I hope you buy the album. At least in the U.S., she's an extremely underrated artist.

I have been waiting for this for quite some time! Thus far after one initial listening, I would rank it as quite good, but not on par with her first album Hands which is exquisite. It is a bit lower-key in mood and tone. However, my love for most albums grow with time as I listen to them more and catch the complexity of vocals, lyrics, and music. I expect my enjoyment of Nocturnes to only grow. In fact, Motorway was on loop in my head when I woke up this morning... :)
