This is Ladytron's debut record for Rykodisc, and apparently it was held up for 3 years due to all sorts of rights issues. It's also the strongest record of their career, and the one that's FINALLY getting them some critical respect. I loved their first two records, 604 and Light & Magic, but this one is much superior. Like they always do, they've changed their style a bit again (604 was a bit more Electropop, with much more of a Kraftwerk obsession, while Light & Magic was a little bit darker and dancier with a bit more emphasis on repetition); Witching Hour is much darker and a little bit closer to rock (but just slightly). If Light & Magic is the kind of metaphorical darkness which appears when everything is lit brightly with a pristine, sterile white surface, daring you to find what's wrong with something that's too eerily perfect, Witching Hour is what happens when the power grid in that world blows out. - Rev.
