Sometimes when listening to an album for the first time, there comes a point in the record where I sit back and think 'Yeah - this is cool'. That happened during the fourth track of 'Pretty in Black' - 'Sleepwalking'. More involving than their first album. Better songs, less Jesus and Mary Chain, more Phil Spector - check the sleigh bells on 'Red Tan'. It even features Ronnie Spector on backup vocals on one cut. Now I just need to find someone to jive with...

I bought this album on the back of the track "Ode to L.A." and I love the whole album. It sounds like the soundtrack to a Tarantino movie yet to be made! Tracks are influenced by 50's rock 'n' roll, 60's girl groups, phil spector, Everly bros. harmonies and even Hank Williams!!
If your looking for a great yet unusual album, then BUY THIS

I've ordered several Raveonettes CDs based on MP3 samples I've heard online. Fabulous! Not sure why so much cool music never gets airtime on UK radio. Thank goodness for the Internet. Actually, I like their minimalist 'Mary Chain/Velvets' style and ordered their Lust Lust Lust CD as well, but the real knockout track for me is Black Wave. It strikes a chord in me that almost sends me to tears. But beware....as a previous reviewer mentioned, the 13 track version here does NOT include Black Wave. You need to locate the import version with 17 tracks. Amazon do have it it and it is a few pence cheaper to boot.

As a neophyte fan I have the benefit of hindsight in declaring 'Pretty in Black' The Raveonettes' best LP, as they've reverted to predictable Mary Chain/Velvets type on 2007's 'Lust Lust Lust'. Those influences are still present on 'Pretty in Black' but the palette is much broader, with 60s girl groups (Ronnie Spector guests on 'Ode to LA'), Link Wray, the Everly Brothers and even Hank Williams adding to the mix. Much of the credit for the perfect pop sheen should go to veteran producer Richard Gottehrer, who embodies the line from the Brill Building through immediate New Wave forebears such as Blondie (whose first LP he produced) to The Raveonettes. He also wrote The Angels' 60s hit 'My Boyfriend's Back' which The Raveonettes cover here in deadpan electropop style. The Jesus & Mary Chain were never that fun !

Incidentally it's worth looking for the 17 track expanded version as the bonus tracks include Hank Williams and Buddy Holly covers and the utterly essential 'Black Wave', which is like a David Lynch film in song.

Yet another talent that seems ignored inside the UK's shoreline. Have we got a barricade or something around or country when it comes to music??? Having enjoyed most of their stuff to date and got this on import before buying the UK release, this is an emerald of an album in a sea of reproduction zircon and fools gold. Disappointed I was not.
