Still flushed with the success of a 16th consecutive Top 10 hit (Sexy! No, No, No...) the girls now get back into the full flow of promotional onslaught with the second single from their hotly anticipated fourth studio album "Tangled Up".
What you immediately trigger is that this is not as brash and loud as Sexy! was, in fact, it's the complete opposite (but in a good way), and to some extent, perhaps better. The tear stained tale of a doomed relationship, "Call The Shots" has, without a shadow of a doubt, got to be the girls' most heart rendering vocal performance (Nicola especially) showcase since "Whole Lotta History".
Though a bit more dreamier than some of their previous singles, it is still good for having a good old boogie to, and indeed, the Tony Lamezma remix emphasises this strongly. As ever, the video is also fantastic, with them all kitted out in purple on Malibu Beach at night, and some quite AMAZING special effects (such as, when the line "fade like starlight" is sung, the stars in the sky fade - WOW).
Overall, I'd say this is a grower, but it does grow into a song that you'll love a lot and soon realise is one of the 5 best singles they've ever recorded and released. Another Top 10 or I'll eat my hat.
