Album Review: Time's Arrow by Ladytron

Great, Based on 5 Critics

Under The Radar - 80
Based on rating 8/10

It's hard to believe Ladytron have been making music for nearly a quarter of a century. Particularly as they still sound as if they've been delivered from the future, which would explain why they've achieved such reverence while attaining a longevity many of their peers could only dream of. They are iconic and influential in equal measures, even if a new Ladytron record is quite rare these days compared to the prolific nature of their output during the first decade of the 2000s.

No Ripcord - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Ladytron might have been labeled an electro-clash band when they arrived in the late 90s, but their music has always scanned closer to electro-pop, if anything else. Over time, they shed the noisier aspects of their music and leaned more heavily into a pop sound which their seventh album, Time's Arrow , continues. Building further from the pristine sound of their 2019 self-titled album and adding elements of shoegaze and disco to the mix, the sound is even richer and polished than before, with heavier atmospheres and reverberated vocals hanging overhead like a layer of early morning dew.

Based on rating 3.5

Renewed assurance is clear from the start of their seventh album, with their sound expanded to massive dimensions with great swathes of synthesized colour As Ladytron move into their third decade of making music, they do so with the assurance that their music can cross generations. While second album Light & Magic was recently indulged with a 20th anniversary reissue, Seventeen - one of its key songs - was being introduced to a whole new audience through TikTok. The song went viral, and its standout lyric, "They only want you when you’re seventeen, when you’re twenty-one, you’re no fun", carried a telling message.

Dusted Magazine
Opinion: Excellent

Photo by Wendy Redfern Ladytron already had their big comeback. The formed-in-Liverpool, now-international quartet took a few years to assemble their starkly dystopian 2019 self-titled record, shortly before the rest of the world became dystopic in new and interesting ways. Ladytron was practically the model of (one version of) a triumphant return: bigger and bolder and weightier than ever, a real Statement (but with tunes).
