4.0 out of 5 stars Put your hands together for a top quality pop album, 1 July 2009
This review is from: Hands (Audio CD)
Having had time to listen to Hands over the last few weeks, it struck me that there are a lot of layers to Little Boots music that need unwrapping in order to fully enjoy the experience.

Most of the tracks come accross as instantly accessable pop with catchy chorus's and sing-a-long tunes, but as you listen more intently and turn up the volume, the odd backing vocal, deep bass, harmony, or synth sound suddenly make an impression, and you find the songs have so much more to say and hairs stand up on the back of your neck.

New in town, Meddle and Remedy are the most instant to hit you with their pop skills, but after a while the real gems of the album "Symmetry and Stuck on repeat," take hold and highlight how talented Little boots is.

Yes there are a couple of wafer light tunes, but this is a pop album, not Queens of the stone age, so learn to love them.

I personally really enjoy this album and Little Boots can come accross so complete on her debut, it makes me eager for album 2 and beyond.

There is an air of the much underrated group "Dubstar" here with haunting female vocals, catchy tunes and quality lyrics.

If you enjoy good quality pop music such as Human League, ABC, Pet Shop Boys even Madonna, then Hands would pretty much suit you down to the ground. Go on and buy it, as the reviews so far don't do it justice.
