    I sort of got off La Roux earlier this year, but funnily enough, she's actually the one that really delivered the goods (Little Boots certainly didn't it!) Some song are a bit too high for me (vocally), but ballad/mid-tempo song 'Cover My Eyes' is amazing. It's one of the more vulnerable songs on the album; it sounds very good next to songs like 'In For The Kill' and 'Bulletproof'.

    I really hated La Roux at first, found her voice unbearable - plus some of her interviews have been quite bad, which didn't endear her to me any further. However I've had to swallow my words thanks to 'Bulletproof', which I love. I am now a bit more used to her voice but I find the whole album in one go a bit much. I really like the first 5 tracks or so but then I start to lose interest halfway through, it gets a bit samey. Still - I think it's a good debut. Influenced by The Knife as well, I reckon. It's those kettle drums.
