A good retro-laced EP

"If you're going to go retro you've got a fine line to straddle. Go too far into homage and people wonder why you're even doing it (hello, that Orgy cover of "Blue Monday!") If you play up the satire end of it, you sound too much like a novelty record. Ladytron does a good job of setting themselves up in original territory without getting too smart for their own good. The EP sounds good, and part of it may be the short length of it - I wonder if the full album would just grate after a while (another reason to keep the EP format alive!) The punchy beatbox attack of "Commodore Rock" is fun, reminiscent of those great Afrika Bambaataa discs. The other side of the coin is the more laid-back "Play Girl" that balances beats with a languid vocal. A fun EP."
A beatbox with New Wave sinsibilities.

"What a single! With beatbox driven songs and sarcastic lyrics, LadyTron has an Elastica meets Kraftwerk-like sound. The lead vocals bring images of Elastica to mind, a sort of Art School stuck up...(in a clever way). The instrumentals are wounderful and on the single you get "Miss.Black" which dose not appear on the full length album. "Commodore Rock" is a track with a wounderful analoge bass sound. Euro synth pop gets a much needed makeover."
Great EP, collectors only

"Just out of complusive collecting I bought this EP. While its a steady little disc the only track on here I believe that is on here that isn't on "604" the short track "Miss Black", which most fans can look over without losing much."
