After the success of 'Overload' the Sugababes first album "One Touch" was a huge disappointment, with only one stand out song - 'Run For Cover', which was pretty amazing.
"Angels With Dirty Faces" shows, not a big change in direction but definitely much better quality material. 'Freak Like Me' is totally unlike anything other 'popular' artists of the moment have released. While a lot of pop artists have tried to move to a more R'n'B sound, this electro-pop sampled release was a welcome change in the charts.
'Round Round' is a fantastic piece of disco pop. The albums of many pop artists today are riddled with cheaply produced fillers with no real substance or lyrical meaning. This was evident on their last album but is totally avoided here. With all tracks given the same attention as the released singles the album is a pleasure right to the end. The next single 'Stronger' is fantastic! A haunting atmospheric ballad this builds up to the end. A track that really stands out is 'Shape' - a cover of Sting's 'Shape of My Heart'. It samples Sting's vocals and along with an edgy beat with gentle strings, it works really well! Their vocals have definitely improved and they definitely know what musical styles suit their voices, a mistake many pop artists make today. 'Breathe Easy' is a sweet ballad and the remix of 'Round Round' is as good as the original. A truly excellent album!!

...and i mean it. I'm not usually a person who really gets into pop music, i prefer rock and urban music and some rn'b, but these girls make fantastic pop. They have a unique musical style which is a mix of pop/Rn'B/Soul/Rock/indie, although, i must say that the 'soul' is not in this album as much as there debut 'one touch'. Just like 'one touch' this is a very mature album and makes pop seem cool, it has more catchy songs then their debut album, and more of the songs are single-worthy. The music is very funky, but the songs mostly rely on the girls vocals, which are fantastic. These girls can really sing (and they're not a manufactured band either).
it is difficult to pick favourite tracks because they are all so good, the weakest track happens to be 'shape' which features vocals from sting. i will tell you a bit about the standout tracks which HAVEN'T already been released as singles.
Supernatural-This is an Rn'B sounding song with a mechanical grind and a very catchy chorus
Virgin sexy-Sleazy Rn'B/Rock.....it is my fave track at the moment and is veeeery cool.
Just don't need this- not immeadiately a standout track to me, but when it got into the third verse and last chorus i fell in love with the song. it is a kind of urban ballad...but not slow
More than a million miles-i instantly loved this track...the harmonies in the vocals are brilliant.
Buy it! It is one of 2002/3's essential albums!

The Sugagbaes have come back with a blinder. Like the two outstanding singles (Freak Like Me and Round and Round) this album oozes quality. It ranges from sassy in yer face club tracks such as Virgin Sexy, Just Don't Need This and Supernatural to powerful balleds such as Stronger (not the Britney track!!) and Breathin Easy. The title track is an infectious piece of pop that really ought to be the next single.
Other stand out tracks are 'Blue' which starts slowly and builds into a powerful balled, and 'Shape of My Heart' which was originally made by Sting. He obviously likes the reworking as he provides guest vocals on this track!! - This track is being tipped as a potential Christmas single for the girls.
Everytime I play this album, it seems to get better - there is not one duff track on here. It even has an additional mix of Round and Round which finishes the package off nicely.
Somehow I don't think this will flop like their debut album. After all they already have two number ones this year, and hopefully this album will make it a hat-track.

"Angels With Dirty Faces" is the album that catapulted Sugababes to the mainstream and to the view of the pop public. Whereas "One Touch" was a subtle introduction to their capabilities as a girl group, "Angels With Dirty Faces" explodes with pop and street cred. In today's pop standards, it's extremely fresh, hip, and edgy with its dark, atmospheric R&B/hip-hop and electro-pop foundation. What makes this sophomore effort even more enganging than its predecessor is the accomplishment and the amount of ground covered with its tracks. "Freak Like Me," the lead single, is a devastatingly unconventional pop number: a sonic clash of hard-hitting electronic/robotic sounds with a heavy R&B track. It's easily one of the best covers mainstream music has heard in a long time! Dark, gothic, club-ready, yet still street, "Freak Like Me" is one of Sugababes' trademark singles. "Blue" is another feast of the ears with drum 'N' bass mixed with strummy acoustics and a hummable melody: all constitute to its extreme catchiness. "Round Round" maintains the amazing play of songs during the album's first half. It's heavy and dark. It's a bubblegum pop fan's worst nightmare! Classy, sophisticated, stylish, and effortless, this alternative-sounding dance track is also another trademark Sugababes single. "Stronger" is yet another amazing track. It's a slowed down, near-trip-hop groove that incorporates monumental strings with a powerful message of perseverance. One of the best Sugababes tracks ever! "Supernatural" might sound like Brandy's "What About Us?," but it's still a funky, electrofied R&B number nonetheless. "Angels With Dirty Faces" is a weird, schizophrenic electro-pop track that cements Sugababes' reputation as being the coolest girl group of the new millennium.Read more ›
