I was wondering what was going to arise from the third album; TREATS had been full of energy;Reign of Terror more towards hard driving tempos and since Sleigh Bells have been various described as noise, indie or industrial rock, also dance or, synth punk, as well as noise pop then to my old ears anything could happen.
Firstly Alexis Krauss seems to have taken over the writing for this album and whereas you can depend on the signature wonderful wave of electronic cacophony; on Bitter Rivals the duo are trying out other approaches. It might sound odd from Sleigh Bells but at times there is a melodic and lighter touch. To illustrate why I have this impression here's track by track commentary:
`Bitter Rivals' starts with deceptive small town jaunty guitar chords and a barking dog (no kidding) before lurching into Sleigh Bells mixed with rap, which gets the attention. `Sugarcane' is back to the familiar territory of the preceding albums `Minnie' again makes you think things are settling down, but there is compelling and creepy chanting chorus in which Krauss turns on her `girlie' voice. 'Sing Like A Wire' is also classic Sleigh Bells interspersed with a texture of `sound' that verges on the orchestral suggesting they are trying out new approaches to the familiar. 'Young Legends' is different, this closer to happy and jaunty pop, no assault by a grand wall of distorted guitars we are into the melodic. `Tiger Kit' mixes up the whole business, there's cow's moos (in small measure), Krauss in another more harmonious frame of voice, while Miller throws in acoustic, R&B and electronic and the whole works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular 30 Oct 2013

Now this is a real surprise. I had been following Sleigh Bells for a while, while never being totally convinced taht they were as good as what was written. Here I have to say that I must change my mind totally on the subject. This is a great record, one of the best of the yea, and we are very late in the year indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars They just get better... 9 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
Their first album didn't chart, this second went to number 48 and this is their third. Let's hope it goes top 40, the first track is particularly good!
