Ladytron have a great retro-futuristic vibe to their music--it sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie where everyone wears fabulous costumes and sits in bubble chairs. I suggest this music to add a sophisticated touch to any party, to listen to while driving, or to get inspiration while trying to design your new space-ace bachelor pad.
2)Even after you buy the CD you still might hate it (ok, you'll probably dig it if amazon pushed you into this section anyway)
Unless you're a fan of 80's synth pop/rock/electronica, don't even bother... This took me a good 5 listens until i started to jive with their whole deal- Funky electronica (though nothing new to you hard-core heads) combined with the monotone voices reminiscent of those good ol' electronica days. It's got a few spats of songs that'll knock your socks off, but nothing spectacular. Once you get around that "what am i listening to?" phase, 604 will suck you into the wonderful world of Ladytron.
"604" by Ladytron is a disappointment in many aspects. I value Ladytron as a band, but "604," as a whole, is not up to par. Looking at the album from a musical standpoint, it is a solid and consistent album. However, if placing the album into the genre of electronic music, it is quite banal. Having recommended "604" to various friends of mine who share none of the same musical interests, I was surprisingly greeted with a reaction along the lines of the following: "I feel as though I have heard this before." Being that there is no possible way my friends may have heard this cd, I have come to the conclusion that "604" is not the geniusly mastered disc I once believed it to be.
Basically, buying this cd will gain you about 5 catchy tracks and a headache.
I gave this cd four stars because while banal, it is a solid album and adequate for dancing.
