Biography

On the day we meet in a West London pub, La Roux’s ‘In For The Kill’ has just risen up the charts to number two. Two days later, it’ll go up again to the top. By that point it had already spent a month in the higher reaches of the chart, gradually transforming itself from a debut single to a bona fide public phenomenon.

Of all the pop debutantes perched on the ... Read more in Amazon's La Roux Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Catch Like A Virus 8 Mar 2010
By Bongo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album should carry a Health Warning. Truly the musical equivalent of Measles, infectious, an itch you cannot scratch. I hated this album when i first heard it. I am, after all, a dedicated Heavy Metal fan... this electronic rubbish was not to be to my taste. 48 hours later i was sat in a friends car when i heard La Roux again. I have probably never had a greater musical epiphany. Elly Jackson has one of the best voices of this decade and La Roux have produced one of the most intelligent 'pop' records of this genre. Instant classics like 'In For the Kill' and 'Bulletproof' are immediate in their impact and infectiousness but the true depth of La Roux is hidden in gems such as 'Colourless Colour'. Dismiss at your peril... you really would miss out on the freshest and most intelligent pop albums of all time. Catch the bug now! Now... how do i disguise this amidst my Maiden albums..

3.0 out of 5 stars Retro but good 7 Nov 2009
Format:Vinyl
It's not a *brilliant* album, it does taper off towards the end, but it *is* their first so give them space, and "Bulletproof" is just so great it's almost worth buying just for that track!

If I have a criticism though it's so blatantly influenced by early 80's synthpop I almost feel Vince Clarke should have a royalty credit - this music just wouldn't exist if it wasn't for him! ;-)

Can't wait for album number 2...

By J. Goh
Format:Audio CD
I am 42 and have been in love with music since my childhood. I am deeply passionate about a very wide variety of music, from serious classical music to opera, lived through the 80s with the the New Wave movement, then Madonna and Pet SHop Boys formed the soundtrack of life from the 90s on; discovered trance and danced till it died in the 21st century.

I still buy CDs and always try to keep up with pop other than those from winners of TV talent shows. Why is all this relevant? Let me say this, this album is one of the most refreshing pop releases in recent years!! Yes she has got an odd voice, yes, the lyrics are odd, yes, she looks odd, yes, at first and second listen many of the tracks share similar beats and even chords. But this girl knows how to put a catchy tune together. Remember when songs used to be about melody and tune? This is like the 80s all over again. What were the better pop releases in the past year or two? Sasha Fierce? E=MC2? Day and Age? Funhouse?The Sweet Escape? Relapse? Count La Roux in! Give it a go, don't take it too seriously, and treat your ears to some catchy tunes again.

5.0 out of 5 stars La Roux, best new singer 8 Oct 2009
By R. Pipe
Format:Audio CD
Heard La Roux on Alan Carr's show for the first time. Reminded me of Leo Sayer when he first started absolutely spot on with notes and a great performer.

Format:Audio CD
I couldn't wait for this album to come out and I was not disappointed!! I have since converted several friends to being fans and can't wait to see her in November in Glasgow! I totally recommend this album- Tigerlilly (track 2) is amazing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but not far off 5 Aug 2009
By Karen G
Format:Audio CD
I waited 6 months for this album so I had quite high expectations that, understandably, were going to be hard to live up to.
Having said that, i think it's a fantastic debut from a great artist, even if it's not to everyones taste.
My personal favourites are 'Tigerlily', 'Colourless Colour' and 'I'm Not Your Toy' (as well as the released tracks).
The only forgettable tracks are 'As If By Magic' and 'Armour Love' and even these are still pleasant to listen to.
Overall, a great album - not perfect, but not far off.

5.0 out of 5 stars return to the 80's 29 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Love the 80's? Love electropop? Then love La Roux & love their amazing debut album! Favourite tracks: Cover My Eyes & Reflections Are Protection as well as the singles, but there's not a duff track on the album. Elly's vocals are superb throughout,Ben's keyboard work is simple but sensational! If you love Erasure & Human League you will LOVE La Roux!!

Synth-pop may have had a kind of renaissance back in the late-2000s. However, as La Roux's self-titled album highlights, you can do so much on a synthesiser that does not rip off... Read more

Where do I start, this album is absolutely FANTASTIC!!! From virtually any point of analysis, the music is of course boppy 80's style, which makes it retro. Read more
