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.

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.

Like so many others (based on the popularity bar anyway), the Verizon commercial got me into the very catchy "My Blue Eyes" song. But there's so much other good music here! "Girl Like Me" is awesome. "Sunday Drive" is maddeningly addictive (gets stuck in your head while you're trying to fall asleep at night, thanks.) "Black White & Blue" is gorgeous, and "Vanity", "Anxiety" and "Gone Gone Gone", all spot on. By the absence of their mention, there are a couple of near misses for me, but I'm sure others will like them. They aren't "bad", certainly good enough for 3 stars.

So on the whole, this is a spectacular album.

I put it right up there with Metric and Deluka. One great song after another.

Amazing that music with this quality is still being made, and more amazing that it's not all over the radio. WTF happened to the music industry? These people should be the mega-stars of today, not Jay Z and Beyoncé. This is REAL music.

I guess the only place good music can be heard is on phone plan commercials now.

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).

This album is fantastic, another wonderful Cornucopia of infectiously catchy grooves from the best Female Artist working today imho. "Blue Eyes", "Gone, Gone gone", and the title track "Anxiety", are already ingrained in my head, and I mean that in a GOOD way. I Love her debut album, and this is shaping up to be the perfect sequel - my only complaint is, it's taking way to long to be fully released, it was originally scheduled for October '011, then March '012, then May, now June - I'm glad to have the MP3, but I'm irritated to STILL be waiting for the CD and LP I ordered to ship! This isn't Ladyhawke's doing, she wants it available legally as much as her fans do. It's an idiotic decision made by the Label Suits, that only serves to promote Piracy. But this record is definitely worth the wait, and I hope all of Her Fans will purchase it legally as soon as possible, and spread the word about this great Artist, she truly deserves our support!
