limited edition digipack version. one of the brightest stars to light up the pop firmament this millennium is back, with a difference. thanks to her brilliant self-titled 2008 debut, ladyhawke, aka pip brown, shot to stardom around the world, particularly in britain and the antipodes, where the new zealand-born singer-songwriter soon gathered up armfuls of awards as the breakthrough artist of the moment. with such inventive and hyper-melodic gems laced throughout, 'anxiety' is shaping up as one of 2012's biggest albums. 'anxiety' is duly awash with riffs and lovingly distorted guitar textures, bringing added energy and excitement to her insanely catchy melodies. 'blue eyes', for instance, features pulse-racing blasts of six-string noize, a wiggy solo, and a 'na-na' chorus, all harking back to the age of glam-rock, and one of pip's absolute idols, joan jett. the title track's refrain, meanwhile, hinges on stadium-torching chord changes, while 'black, white and blue' has the fuzzy, disorientated vibe of a 1966 proto-psychedelic garage-rock nugget, plus another hot, spangly solo!
