Product Description

Is this what we once imagined the future would sound like? On 604 Liverpool-based synth-pop collective Ladytron show all the electronic hallmarks of 1980, only without the "New Dawn of Technology" neurosis. Remember in those days how man feared the totalitarian march of the machine? How we worried that our friends might be electric? That our minds might be toys? That video would kill the radio star? That human labor would be redundant and we'd all be reduced to a Mao-suited existence in some morose metropolis? OK, so 604 does contain a few Marxist nursery rhymes (sung by stern Bulgarian female vocalist Mira Aroyo) but it also contains a version of the theme tune to '70s sit-com "Are You Being Served" (sung sweetly by the kittenish "Bond girl" voice of Helen Marnie). Ladytron's inspired, accessible electro-pop is where latter-day, Tarwater-style Krautrock meets the melodic appeal of the Human League, the Pet Shop Boys and Abba, with just a little bit of the sociosexual commentary of Black Box Recorder thrown in for good measure. Gary Numan was never as much fun as this. --Kevin Maidment

Product Description

Reissue of the band's impressive 2001 debut album, originally out on Emperor Norton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get your groove back with Ladytron July 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Their debut should have knocked the block off the overrated, implodingly sugary pop scene.
Regardless of mainstream, this is pop music that should be getting everyone's attention.
It's filled with clever, time-warping references and killer...well...grooves! (and melodies)
Also, it contains cute synthesized interludes, which always build into the next coming sublime pop hook, but serve as a respite from the ecstasy this music induces all the way through.
From the frantically cool instrumental opener, all through the first songs, to the unstoppable "Playgirl" to the whimsical "Jet Age" and the very end of the album, this is an addictive mix of modern-disco, Bulgarian rap, and melodic bliss you absolutely shouldn't pass by.
And...may I add that this album's release was a perfect way to start off the new milennium.

4.0 out of 5 stars sublime space-age electro-pop May 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
"604" remains one of my favorite albums in the electronica subgenre of "electroclash". This music features retro, simplistic beats and often a bored-sounding female vocalist. As you can imagine from that description, a lot of electroclash doesn't stand up well to repeated listenings, but "604" is definitely an exception. The music is catchy without being too repetitive, aside from a track or two where I am just starting to think, "this has gone on too long" when the track ends. My favorite tracks are "Discotraxx" and "The Way That I Found You," but the whole album is pretty solid.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars to dance to May 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ladytron provokes disinterested dancing: you know, the kind where you stand in the darker corner of the club, against the wall, and slightly move your upper body back and forth while sneering at everyone else because you're so high on coke.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 Problems with 604 May 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
1) You have to buy the CD to really understand what they do (so nix that download idea unless u pull the full album).
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun Feb. 29 2004
By John
Format:Audio CD
Ladytron achieved something which I beleive is rare in dance/electronica, that is; they are bold and inventive yet still very accessible. Its hard for me to explain what it is exactly that I love so much about this record but you really should give it a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars 604 is totally robotically super Feb. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Just wonderful! The music is totally Gary Numan! And that cover art...they look so lovely in their take of 1960's Sci-Fi. Very Doctor Who looking. A five star New Wave rebirth!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Take on Electronica Jan. 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aware that painstakingly long reviews are often merely skimmed over or disregarded, I am going to keep this review short and concise.
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electro-pop at its best.... Aug. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album contains not only catchy pop , but have also a distinct sensual, bittersweet tint.
The female vocals singing the sarcastic, slightly melancholic lyrics blend with the simple elctronic sound and tunes to a delightful whole. Excellent for dancing and couch dwelling.
