Biography

LADYTRON earned a decade’s worth of acclaim by relentlessly pushing boundaries, carving out new sonic and conceptual space and refusing to abide any formula or trend.

So it’s testimony to their craft to say that Gravity The Seducer, the fifth album from the electro-pop provocateurs, is vintage Ladytron — because, like each of the four preceding albums, it’s not ... Read more in Amazon's Ladytron Store

4.0 out of 5 stars for sythn music fans 16 Mar 2012
Format:Vinyl
I am not wonderfully impressed by side B, but the key melodic tracks on side A's made it really enjoyable for people who like synthesizer music, especially me who don't find much of mass-manufactured pop to my taste.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good 19 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is easily the worst thing that Ladytron have ever done.

With "Ace of Hertz" as a passable pop song and everything else sounding like a poor B-side.
It's like an average pop band's second album, when the pressure has been on from the record company to throw something together quickly and this far down the line with Ladytron's brilliant history, that just doesn't wash.
I would go as far to say that it's "band-splittingly bad" in that I struggle to believe all members of the band could possibly be happy with the release of such a lacklustre album.
There's thin sounding production throughout, with drivel lyrics and none of the flair, depth or variety of the previous albums.

Completely uninspired.

As Ladytron are my favourite current band, I'm saddened that they let this out of the studio.

Buy any/all of the Ladytron back catalogue and forget that this even exists.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEING SEDUCED BY LADYTRON 13 Sep 2011
By nin/ja77 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ladytron release album number 5 "Gravity The Seducer" which is the follow up to 2008's excellent "Velocifero" and comes after a spell of hanging out with legendary producer Brian Eno(who thinks they are brilliant!), who was once a member of Roxy Music who are the band that Ladytron got their name from as they have a song called "Ladytron". His influence can be heard on the album that sees them add new scope to their sound. It's an album that sees them experiment with different styles than ever before.

This is evident on the smooth opener "White Elephant" the song features a haunting sounding keyboard sound in the background. Ladytron listeners will already be familiar with "Ace Of Hz" as it was already included on carear retrospective "Best of 00-10". The Brian Eno influence is really heard on the 3 instrumental tracks on the album the pick of which is "Transparent Days", "Ritual" would probably have worked better with vocals from either Helen Marnie or Mira Aroyo. the third instrumental track is album closer "Aces High".

If any movie director is looking for a good horror style track then they should take a listen to the chilling and haunting "Moon Palace" which really is helped by Mira Aroyo's cold style of vocal. The song "White Gold" is also haunting sounding in a weird eighties sounding way. "Ninety Degrees" is a track that well get repeated listens with both vocalists on fine form. The album recalls elements and influence from Kraftwrek, Gary Numan, Curve, Brian Eno and The Human League but still having an original feel.

With "Gravity The Seducer" Ladytron may have released their most experimental album to date and longtime fans might be disappointed that the big beats have been replaced by a more mellower sound but it's an album that on repeated listens will show that Ladytron have plenty left to offer and will continue to evolve.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Ladytron to Date 21 Sep 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Gravity the Seducer is Ladytron's best effort to date with a mix of songs that push musically beyond anything that they've put out before. Favorites of mine include 90 Degrees, Mirage, Ace of Hz and White Elephant. Only reason I don't give 5 stars is that there is some filler material but all in all, a very strong effort!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gravity The Seducer A+ 14 April 2013
By Andrew Land - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A refreshing album from the electronic-pop group Ladytron. The fifth release, "Gravity The Seducer" successfully expands their music to new places. For those who are fans of the bands previous work, you will not be disappointed. The album's highlights are "White Elephant", "Mirage", "Ace of Hz", "Moon Palace", and "Melting Ice." I would rate this album an A+. There is just something addictive about this record, give it a few listens and you'll be hooked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! Not as great as their other abums though. 21 Oct 2011
By grahamelectro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been in love with Ladytron ever since I picked up Witching Hour at my local half price books. Witching Hour was brilliant and I could not get enough of it. So then, I went searching for their other stuff at my local record stores and I got a hold of a copy of Velocifero. Velocifero was another brilliantly crafted CD. It was even better than Witching Hour in some aspects. SO then, I got 604 and Light & Magic. Both of those albums were also great. They are clearly less developed than their later albums but they show the potential that Ladytron had from the beginning. Needless to say, when I heard of Gravity the Seducer, I was excited. I pre-ordered it right away and anxiously awaited its arrival. I was not disappointed. It is a great album. It is clearly following the path that Velocifero started. However, there are too many instrumentals on Gravity. I love Helen Marnie's voice, I want to hear it. I do not like the fact that Gravity only has three instrumentals out of a total of only twelve songs. I wish that there were either less instrumentals or more total tracks. The songs that are present are great but they are lacking something that Witching Hour and Velocifero had. I, however, still highly recommend this album for anyone that enjoys Ladytron's music.
I would also like to recommend some bands that Ladytron fans might like:
Apoptygma Berzerk (Ladytron even remixes one of their tracks)
Freezepop
Thermostatic

5.0 out of 5 stars Gravity hasn't stopped them... 26 Sep 2011
By Tankery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent album. Their best yet as this band continues to bend, anneal and separate themselves from anyone else. Hypnotic, electro pop, I suppose, but with an edge only provided by this band, especially on their last two studio efforts. My favorite tracks are Melting Ice, Ambulances, well all of the ones that have singers.

There lies the only quibble I have is with the instrumentals. They sound a bit like intermissions between the good songs. I just like it when they write complete pieces with the haunting vocals, mesmerizing electronics, and mood evoking beats.

Still, this band keeps getting better and better, to me.
