Hmmmm! I don't know who shoved the cattle prod in Mrs Coles back this year and told her to take over every available inch of the entertainment and advertising market? Because judging by the lack of expression here, she clearly didn't want to do it. The result is that she's spread her limited talent so thinly that the whole venture has exposed her as just an ordinary Joe with no real star quality. Not to say I don't love you Chez but the reason I love my mother all the more is because I don't see her all the time! And so we get this: Three Words which should have been the perfect pop album. We knew that she would be working with the best in the business, she couldn't afford not to, and we know that it would be a sudden departure from the Girls Aloud sound. I even had a sneaky suspision/dread and horror that she would attempt to become Britains new R'n'B act. Instead, its all a bit of a grey area. There are some absolute genuine pop gems on this album but they are unfortunately not carried out with any passion, conviction or guts. Just, if you will, three or more words being sung. Words which, quite frankly could have been sung by anyone, not excluding my next door neighbour who would quite happily bash any of these out with more fervour if offered Cheryl Coles commission! This is certainly a trait picked up from years of sounding non plussed in Girls Aloud hits but with one difference: when you've got Nadine Coyle backing you up, you're in business! That said we get a slightly disengaged Cheryl not really putting much effort in and the producer struggling to gloss over this with impressive backing. And so, as is custom in many reviews, I shall give each song my star rating:

I bought this after much nagging from my four year old daughter. She loves it! Although the radio singles do get played the most - she has learned most of the words - the other songs are so simple and poppy that she is quickly learning them too. Only one bad word spotted so far, and as she doesn't know this it gets skipped.
Anything that can get them singing and dancing has got to be good.

As a Cheryl Cole fan who so wanted to love this album, I write this review with disappointment oozing from my pores. It took me about 10 listens to like Fight For This Love. I then loved it. With this in mind, I gave the album a few good listens. Perhaps the repetitiveness of songs like Parachute "I don't need a parachute baby if I've got you, baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute" and Make Me Cry "are you trying to make me cry? are you trying to make me cry? (repeat approximately 87 times) where in fact brilliant and I was somehow missing the point. I decided to gloss over the less than impressive lyrics because even the lyrics to Fight For This Love are terrible. Perhaps she will show off her brilliant voice and impress me. Nope! Not since the release of Victoria Beckham's self-titled debut album have vocals been so bland and uninteresting. In fact, this album has absolutely nothing going for it. Nothing! If you own the single Fight For This Love then you'd be as well just not buying it. There isn't one redeemable song to be found - not one!!! Stand Up puts up a good fight, but Cheryl sings the song with such a lazy droll that she manages to make a dance song send the listener to sleep. The chords used throughout the album are really depressing too. The worst song by far on the album is the absolute drivel that is 3 Words - a song that I can only imagine ever being played at 5am at a house party when everyone is lying on the couch feeling the comedown of the alcohol euphoria they felt a few hours previously. The fact that she's releasing this as the next single is astonishing. But then is it? I have no idea what else she could possibly release as a single from this dire album. With all the money that was thrown at this, she could have come up with something a lot better.Read more ›

Better than expected. Those are my 3 words to describe the album. I am not a Girls Aloud fan but after hearing the first single by Cheryl Cole it made me want to listen to more. Some great catchy songs on the album that will get you feeling good. Also features some collaborations with Will.I.Am, such as the first song (and second released single) 3 Words. More in to the rock/indie type of music I was pleasantly suprised on receiving this album.

First of i should say this album is not the pop album you would expect from a artist like Cheryl. A bunch of the songs are slow but the lyrics prove meaningful and her voice manages to suit the songs chosen for her. Cleverly we all know she cant pull of big ballads but she defintly shows potential in this album and to me the album hits the spot.

Cheryl Cole's stunning debut is everything you would expect from a Girls Aloud member going solo: fun and poptastic, but with a sexier twinge than before.

What makes this album better than anything Girls Aloud has ever recorded is the fact that Cheryl has not only drawn together all the best sounds of Girls Aloud, from `Sound of the Underground', through `Love Machine' and `Biology' right up to `The Promise' and `Untouchable', but she has made them slightly more sophisticated, grown up, appealing to a wider audience that Girls Aloud's limited `Young Girls and Gays' category.

I'm pleased to see that Cheryl has got herself penning songs on the album, and has collaborated with an amazing array of awesome producers from Timberland through to Ronson; the combination of which is more amazing than is possible to describe; with a mix of songs reflecting `The Way I Are', `Womanizer' and even Ronson and Winehouse's reworking of `Valerie'. It really is a stunning mix, filled with guitars, horns and strings over a dancefloor-pleasing beat and baseline.

And what is most striking about this album is Cheryl's vocals. She never has been, and never will be, the best singer in the world. But for the girl who could never sing and still has everyone scratching their heads after managing to win a place in the winning girlgroup of Popstars: The Rivals, she has come a long long way! I don't know whether she's had some cosmetic vocal work done or whether being on the X Factor has made her come out of her shell and made her more confident, but this girl is shining in all the right places at the moment.

"3 Words" is an amazing debut, full of upbeat and fabulous songs that will get you singing along and dancing away.
