Sonically, stylistically, and aesthetically it’s the same as Trouble in Paradise, which was a much better album than this. Supervision is not bad, it’s just bland and tbh, very forgetful. None of the tracks really stick with me. Too much of the same. You can do so much better than breezy, retro pop. Try something new La Roux.
This sounds like a sophomore effort right through to production value. I've seen her live, she's fantastic, opening / playing for / with New Order at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles a few years back.... I love her first two efforts. This one seems far less inspired musically if not lyrically. Elly....are you doing OK these days?
Not only does this album sound stylistically way different and more retro than her former material, but the audio quality from a production standpoint sounds vastly inferior. There’s no snap anymore. La Roux was known for her unique candy sounding synths that really popped and cut through the mix. It was very Imogen Heap. New Age. This is... I don’t really know what this is, but at the very least, it is not the same genre.
Holy god. I’m so excited Elly has graced us with more music again. Out of the three music video tracks, automatic driver is easily my favourite...everything I live for...that intro sound. I love it
Even shorter than Trouble In Paradise! but check out the track lengths- ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Save for a few, almost all of them are past the 5-minute mark, that makes me happy. Elly is back, and all is well. ♫
