5.0 out of 5 stars this album does "make me weak at the knees".... June 29, 2007
By M. Case
Format:Audio CD
i feel that i should be slightly apologetic, for reviewing this so late after the release. i actually was exposed to electrelane at a live show with le tigre in 2005. i was hooked, HOOKED after seeing these incredibly talented women perform. it took ages to find "the power out" in hard copy at the local record store, but since i've obtained it, i've relished every nostalgic moment of seeing them live and have consistently put this as my top played songs.

i don't feel that i could more adequately describe their tracks as the very able reviewers below me, but i can say that this is the most hidden jewel of all experimental-indie bands out there. almost every song evokes a very strong emotional response from within, and i have to say, if you're a person who loves being solitary and lean more towards the creative, i'd recommend this album whole-heartedly. it's an anthem album for the melancholy, but secure in their aloneness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wunderbar... February 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not only they have a hard time sticking to one language in their lyrics, they sure can't see their listeners stay calm and content listening to one tune. A rollercoaster would be a ferry ride compared to the adventures they convey through this album. There is not a single moment of imitation in the whole album, yet one could find a little bit of everything in so many tracks. There is a probably little bit of Radiohead, a little bit of Doors, a light taste of Cardigans and a few drops of Cranberries lying around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steve Albini Produced...What Are You Waiting For? March 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Having just been exposed to Joy Division this summer, it's hard for this reviewer to ignore the similar kind of vibes I get from this, the second LP from Brighton's Electrelane. Steve Albini [The Pixies, Nirvana] seems to restrain his usually dirty production for the whole of this album with the exception of "Take The Bit Between Your Teeth" in lieu of doing his best Martin Hannett impression and even then doesn't do over the top. The all girl group is for all intents and purposes frozen on record in this sparse and doomy yet morbidly moving piece of desolation in a fairly timeless fashion for future generations to discover. The overall sound is much like Patti Smith fronting Ian Curtis' ill-fated band specifically on the "Free Money" influenced "Birds" [Horses, "Birds" ... Hmmm] except for the crisp quality of sound which time and technology have afforded us. Most of the time I'm forced to imagine a stilted Verity Susman, lead singer, screaming out into the night from some isolated, dark alley in the lower/middle class section of a decaying, country nonspecific metropolis, one of the last romantics suffering for the sins of a generation whose idea of love comes from and dies in J. Lo movies and McDonald's commercials. Music this soulful has no right to be made in the 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars minimal and magical February 20, 2004
By Renee
Format:Audio CD
I just want to say that "The Valleys" is the most stunning song I've heard in ages. It will stop you dead in your tracks. The entire cd is a winner, in fact.

4.0 out of 5 stars true musicians February 24, 2004
By Sam
Format:Audio CD
Eletrelane are four girls from Brighton, England. These four girls may also be the, `the next big thing' in music. Their debut album, `Rock It to the Moon' created a buzz in the indie rock world. However, their new album, `The Power Out' may turn that buzz into a boom.
The first track, `Gone Under Sea' is a mellow, glistening song that is sung entirely in French. This song is quiet, but speaks volumes with lead singer Verity Susman's vocals; one minute they are sweet and soothing the next they are angry and rebellious. The rhythm of, `Gone Under Sea' and Verity's excellent vocals create a resonating melody.
`Oh Sombra!'(Oh Shadow!) is another foreign track. This time the language of choice is Spanish. `Oh Sombra!' is a very lively and has somewhat of a punk swagger. The guitars chug along while Verity rants like Courtney Love in Hole's punk heyday.
On `Take the Bit between your Teeth' Electrelane shows us that they can rock out as well as Black Sabbath can. Once again Verity's electrifying voice is focal point. She ranges from Patti Smith to Iggy Pop. This song even has a roaring guitar solo followed up by orgasmic yelps that really sex-up this metal/pop song.
Electrelane switches things up a bit with; `Birds' this somber song is all about getting over the lost of someone. `Birds' starts of somewhat depressive, (I want to see you, more than anything) but ends with a fierce bang, (it's not that I can't go on without you/busy, busy all the time) once again the band is taking advantage of the quiet/loud dynamic. At the end they tie it all together when Verity sweetly sings, (but I can't stop thinking about you.) This quiet two-minute song is one the shining moments of the album.
So far so good, right? Well, not exactly.
