Have you ever been handed a mix CD or mix tape by a friend, who happens to be a major music geek? You politely promise to give it a listen, but for some reason laziness being the primary one you don't, and as weeks go by, it just sits buried in your own pile of CDs, and every time you come across it, you see its empty, generic label, its "Maxell" or "Memorex" emblazoned across, with some kind of pretentious title scribbled with a Sharpie, looking nowhere near as enticing as the cover of the new Darkness album. Then, the next time you see your friend, he or she asks what you thought of it, eyes ablaze in anticipation, in hope that, after hours and hours of track selection, sequencing for maximum fluidity and effect, and trying to work with a finicky CD burner, finally, after one listen, you will admit to having seen the light, thank him or her profusely, begging to hear more, how nothing could have prepared you for that 80 minute musical epiphany; but instead, all you can do is meekly fib, "Uh, yeah, it's pretty good.
Formed in the underbelly of the industrial, electronica and punk scenes, electroclash quickly turned fishnets, androgynous midriff-baring cut-off tees and eyeliner unisex, and forced conformist teens to gamely attempt to dance to its often dissonant, minimalist electronic compositions.

Actually, none of this matters now, because I have just noticed that the tracklist opens with a My Bloody Valentine song.

Ladytron's Softcore Jukebox is a gift for those who missed Ladytron making the DJ rounds this past year count me as one of those, since they came here to Boston on a Sunday night. Softcore Jukebox is an interested cd, coming at a time in music history when a number of things are occurring. The death of the album has been a topic of debate, thanks to the combination lull in the music industry and the art of the download.
