La Roux: Trouble in Paradise


It’s interesting to read so much enthusiastic reviews. You start asking yourself: who’s the alien? I mean Alex Petridis is full of praise, the guy who has written the excellent review of Soul Mining (see our reissue of the month). Everyone seems to be delighted. Are there already La Roux street dance parties? I always thought I knew something about the magic of surfaces, simple pop pleasures with a twist, the art of transcending cheap thrills with very special cheap thrills. No problem to confess I love the Bee Gees soundtracking Saturday Night Fever, some Pet Shop Boys songs are heartbreaking, a lot of Abba songs are irresistible till the end of time, but this … I can’t stand this
