It was always going to be difficult to follow her acclaimed first album, perhaps thats where the anxiety in the title comes from! Admittedly, this CD slightly lacks the catchy riffs of the first, but compensates for this with a more driven sound. She rocks out a bit more on this album, more drums and guitars, some will like it and some will not but personally I love it. Anxiety has infectious energy and driving enthusiasm, the songs are a little darker and edgier, but still with that distinctive voice and singing style. All the songs on here are worthwhile, my personal favourite being Vaccine which mixes energy with great harmonies. Overall I think she deserves credit for not coming up with an imitation of her first album, you cannot accuse her of resting on her laurels. Ladyhawke rocks out on this one but without losing her unique musical style. In Anxiety she serves up a potent musical cocktail of energetic yet reflective songs, which draws me back in to listen repeatedly. PS I found the production on this very good although others disagree it seems!
