We were not fans of Ladytron’s last album, Gravity the Seducer. To us, it just didn’t sound synthpop, and therefore, not Ladytron. It felt like they were taking themselves way too seriously, so when singer Helen Marnie announced she would be releasing a solo album, we weren’t sure what to expect, but merely hoped for the best. Well, we are happy to report, lead single, The Hunter sees an about face, albeit, a little lighter, towards the Ladytron we had orignially fallen in love with. Some may argue it is a step back, but we feel you shouldn’t mess with a formula so endearing. Our only gripe? What is seriously up with that hair?!
