  • Summary: The debut album for the New Zealander Pip Brown.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 17
  2. Negative: 1 out of 17
  1. New Zealand multi-instrumentalist Pip Brown a/k/a Ladyhawke presents us with a treasure trove of found blips, as if the 1980s had been nothing but a gigantic mirror ball to smash and paste back together.
  2. Ladyhawke is an accessible but immensely rewarding listen, and while some of this singer's influences may be middle of the road, her album isn't even on the road.
  3. We can quibble about intent and expression, but in the end you will have to succumb to the heart, body and soul, and your brain might be left behind.
  4. We'll settle for saying it's a great record. Full stop.
  5. Substantive lyrics aren’t part of Pip Brown’s forte but, then again, they’re totally unnecessary in the genre to which she peddles.
  6. One nostalgia trip worth taking. [Oct 2008, p.147]
  7. People will tell you Ladyhawke is fresh and exciting. They're wrong. It's horrendous.
