I had already heard what the reviewer calls "new tracks" as they were released as b-sides to the singles released in Europe and available in the US on import. All are great; Mira gets a little more voice time on "Nothing to Hide," and the two instrumentals are amazing feats of technical and artistic skill.
I was also impressed by the remixes. The Jagz Kooner remix of "Sugar" is amazing, sure to get even the most aloof shoe-gazing indie kids to start tapping their feet and maybe even thrash around the dance floor.
The club mix of "High Rise" may be repetitive, but what club mix isn't? That's the way it's meant to be, and I for one love it. It takes the opening bits of the original, extends it, then progresses to a frenzy. Following a chill interlude, more fabulous frenzy until it drops off, leaving me a bit breathless.
"Destroy Everything You Touch (Catholic Version)" is a bit dirge-like, although perhaps it provides insight as to what has driven Ladytron's sound.
I could go on as the other two remixes are each a sonic revelation.
The bonus DVD is great, and as mentioned, the video for "Destroy Everything You Touch" is awesome. It is also very Ladytron, as their sound is often referred to with multiple adjectives synonomous with icy/chilling/remote etc.
The video for "Sugar" is not so heavy on the special effects and may not be quite as imaginative, but it is of a superior film quality than what is the norm for most videos.
The documentary is a riot.Read more ›
If you are a really hardcore Ladytron fan you might consider having this in your collection as not to miss any of their stuff, but all in all even as a hardcore fan myself I regret having shelled out for this.

To respond to the previous reviewer, having just seen Ladytron live in concert at the 9:30 club, I can definitely vouch for them sounding very similar to their recordings live. Read morePublished on April 15, 2006 by Benjamin Norman
