4.0 out of 5 stars Keep it simple stupid...oh and thrilling too!, 5 May 2009
This review is from: Box of Secrets (Audio CD)
Blood Red Shoes are a true reminder of the power of simplicity. One guitarist/singer, one drummer/singer, no bass or synths or unnecessary filling. Such a direct and minimal approach does demand effective performances and these come in glorious, sneering melodic chunks from guitarist Laura mary and especially drummer Steven.

This album was a long time coming and the band were probably wise to record fresh and spiced up versions of their popular tracks (established from previous EPs) such as 'It's Getting Boring by the Sea'. There are few duds here and the highlights such as the explosive single 'This is Not For You' and the excellent 'Take the Weight' (with its pass-the-parcel boy to girl vocal) are ideally suited to loud play in the car whizzing along a sunny motorway at the weekend.

Blood Red Shoes are best experienced live for their raw energy and enthusiasm but this debut captures a great deal of that experience.
