For young and old.. this is a must for anyone that knows how to party and dance.. a phenomenal mix of new and brilliant old.. not only for (us old folk) Candy Staton and The Source great dance floor classic. I fail to see how anyone with taste can't love this cd.

This is a compilation of music* by different artists chosen by the band and contains two of their own tunes, not all to my taste............ so what!
For me it's a way of getting a handle on the band's tastes and possible influences, a little peek into their brains perhaps.
I also like the cover......a peek under the girls' clothes perhaps :0
Ladytron can do no wrong, as a 41 year old (as at 2010 the year of our lord Richard Dawkins)and this last year I have bought all their albums and there are no real duffers in there AT ALL and many moments of brilliance.
THE MOST UNDERATED CURRENT BAND ON THE PLANET (EARTH), IMHO.
*CONTAINS "HIT THE NORTH" BY THE FALL :)

This compilation doesn't really work for me. There are some interesting and quirky tracks here, but many seem to have been chosen for their novelty value. For me, it's not a compilation which stands up to repeated playing.

Warning this is a compilation of NON Ladytron tracks - apart from two of them and ones a bit iffy at that - so be warned!

Saying that I enjoyed it overall but some of the tracks deserve binning big time - teenage daughter made me laugh for ages!

If you are a Ladytron fan avoid!

HASH(0x8bc2e678) out of 5 stars Phaedra Is My Name... 9 July 2004
By ReignWaterBurns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Okay, so Ladytron put together a pretty good mix of tunes. Some rock, some hip hop, some electro, some indie... something for everyone basically. Stand out tracks (for me) are the "new" version of Ladytron's "Blue Jeans" (i'm guessing the original is on L&M, which i haven't listened to that much), and "Teenage Daughter" by Fat Truckers (some other reviewer didn't like this song but I think it rules. I thought hearing the phrase "teenage daughter" a hundred times would wear on me but it really hasn't). I also don't mind Ladytron's cover of Tweet's "Oops On My" but I would have left it alone if I were them.
But what really rocks my boat seriously, is the very last track on the cd, called "Some Velvet Morning," a duet by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra. My life could've been incomplete forever had I not found this gem of a song on Ladytron's cd. I am absolutely nuts over it. The song plays out like a musical duel, shifting between Hazlewood's sleepy cowboy-esque ballad and Sinatra's "step-one-two" Lawrence Welk-ish coos. The vocal parts entwine closer and closer together until the listener is getting single lines alternating in time. I can't adequately explain how wonderful this song is. Whichever member of Ladytron that selected this song for Softcore Jukebox has given me a beautiful gift indeed.

HASH(0x8bc2e6a8) out of 5 stars Soundtrack of my life 22 April 2004
By alexander laurence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I always wondered what sort of music inspired Ladytron. Now we have mix record by them. I usually don't look forward to mix albums but this seemed too good to pass on. Of course there is the cool punk bands here like Wire and The Fall. There is stuff from the sixties, including Nancy & Lee and Shocking Blue. There is all of Ladytron's labelmates at Invicta Hi-fi like Snap Ant, Dondolo, and Pop Levi. There is some good stuff from the past like My Bloody Valentine, Cristina, and New Fast Automatic Daffodils. There is even a new version of Ladytron's "Blue Jeans." Even better Ladytron does "Oops Oh My" which I hope is going to be the new direction for the next Ladytron album. This is a god party mix and an idea of some of the stuff that Ladytron DJ team plays at the clubs they do in London.

HASH(0x8c270e4c) out of 5 stars Very brilliant release... 20 Oct. 2003
By English Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a very cool idea: a compilation that Ladytron created. Put aside all the other new Electroclash compilations because they always seem to have the same five or six artists and songs (e.g. felix da housecat, fischerspooner, miss kittin, etc.) This compilation explores artists you probably never heard of, many of which are retired from making music by now. Reasons I like this compilation include:
1. Ladytron introduces great songs from the 60's, 80's, 90's, and even 2003 --- not 1 style or 1 year, but rather a bit of everything.
2. This compilation is not a megamix like many other compilations, so it contains the full version of the songs which is a plus !
3. Ladytron has an excellent taste for music.
I still feel that Peng (track 4) has one of the best synth lines ever. Halfway thru the song you will feel it too.
Track 5, which is titled "The 15th" is my favorite song on the cd.. it is the cover song that you probably heard on Fischerspooner's #1 album. However, this original version is far superior to the cover version on #1 by Fischerspooner.
Some people were saying these are songs that influenced Ladytron, which I don't dis-agree with, but some songs on the compilation are from 2003, so I'm not sure how they could influence Ladytron who released their two albums prior to 2003.
If you are willing to listen to good music and leave the Electroclash bubble and experience other sounds, then this compilation is for you. There are a few songs that I didn't enjoy, but they were easily made up for by the other good songs. Sometimes you have to go by trust and in this case, you need to trust Ladytron.

HASH(0x8bc2e978) out of 5 stars SoftCore Dreamy Jukebox! 22 Nov. 2003
By C. Faiella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is awesome. You need to find a quiet place lay down on some pillows and relax to the sounds and songs of this CD. The dreamy essence of all of the selections will put you at ease especially after a hard day of work. I especially like the tracks from WIRe and Nancy SInatra/Lee Hazelwood- it so totally rocks. Ladytron puts on a good show for anyone that is interested.
Enjoy!

HASH(0x8bc2ec00) out of 5 stars Wow, what a great mix 24 Oct. 2003
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Since buying this cd, I've been scrambling buy the cds of several of the artists represented. Who is the heck is Dondolo? I have no idea, but Peng is a great track. Very upbeat and pleasant, it could easily be the background music for a new Nintendo game. Saviour Piece by Snap Ant has me bopping my head, an electro acoustic number with oh so eighties clapping thrown in. I loved their remix of Playgirl and I love this track, I want more Snap Ant! Hey Miami sounds just like you'd think it would, sunny bootyrap by some hoochie mammas, I've already grabbed a copy of Fannypack's cd, So Stylistic. They can thank Ladytron. Manila by Seelenluft reminds me of a spaced out version of something from Schoolhouse Rock, the vocals have a very nice little kid quallity to them. Crazy Girls, oh my, I think this might be the catchiest track on this disk - "And all the blah blah seems to boogie". Although there are a couple of tracks that really just don't cut it ( Ladytron's cover of Oops Oh My and Hit the North, Pt. 1 in particular ), this cd is very much worth buying.
