Product Description

Mis-Teeq ~ Eye Candy

Amazon.co.uk

Eye Candy, the follow up to their debut, Lickin' on Both Sides, isn't as straightforward as it could be for Mis-Teeq. Their debut had the world at its feet--they were simultaneously the garage act with the most crossover appeal and the most credible pop act around; with their mixture of garage vocals and traditional R&B making them a very exciting package.

For Eye Candy, however, things are different. With the garage scene having lost some of its sparkle, and the Sugababes pushing them hard on the cool pop side, it's a tough time for the Mis-Teeq girls. Luckily they've kept Swedish producers extraordinaire Stargate on, plus with their trademark straight forward R&B and a hint of garage courtesy of Alesha's scattergun vocal style. "Scandalous" is a good example, with an evil-sounding bass line welded to the girls' sweetly sung vocals, as is the lively garage pop of "Dance Your Cares Away". This is a slightly more mature work than Lickin' was, though, with tracks such as "Can't Get it Back" showing a sophisticated side that's been missing until now, and recalls an on-form TLC. This is not a quantum leap forward by any means, more confirmation of their rightful place--at the centre of the UK R&B scene. --Chris Blenkarn

Mis-teeq. A group synonymous with the Garage scene, highlighted by their winning numerous awards for best garage act in the last 18 months. But they're not. The garage beat has been restrained for the second album, but not at the expense of hi-energy tunes, 'Nitro', and 'Eye Candy' attest to that. It's just that, as with a lot of urban acts at the mo, they have ditched two-step for a more commercial, R&B sound. Lisa Maffia's new single is in the same vein, standing on an equal footing with the best the US has to offer, beats and harmonies alike.
The album is filled with amazing tunes, club bangers with HEAVY beats as well as ballads that put more established groups to shame with their originality and cohesiveness. The eastern flow of 'Just For You,' the sultry sound of 'Can't Get It Back', amazing Miami base sound from NOWHERE on 'Day Off,' to the simply gorgeous mellow tones of '...To Feel Like Love' show they were SO much more than a garage cash-in that single 'Why' might have suggested in 2001. THEN, their uniqueness is definitely provided by the ferocious chats of Alisha, keeping the underground feel alive on the dancehall-lite 'Do Me Like That,' catapaulting this album and Mis-teeq alike to diva status. They have carved out their own sound in a very competitive market, doing it good and proving they're much more than just eye candy.

First things First: 'Scandalous' achieves instant classic status and is easily one of the best singles released this year. 'Eye Candy' is a good R&B album, but that's all it is. Mis Teeq's debut, Lickin' on Both Sides, was a sassy, high-energy blitz of attitude, garage beats and pitch perfect pop. 'Eye Candy', however, features one too many drippy ballads that should have been relegated to someone far less exciting than Mis Teeq (like Ashanti or Mariah Carey). The album does have its moments, 'My Song', 'Can't Get it Back', 'Dance Your Cares Away', and 'Nitro' stand out as the album's most infectious tracks and make you realize what it is these girls do best. As for 'All in One Day', this catchy number walks the line precariously; it's almost a tounge-in-cheek bit of fun at the bling bling lifestyle's (and all its pretentions) expense, yet it is not quite smart enough to raise it above the level of, say, Puff Daddy. A good second album, but lacks the brazen fun of the first.

I think, 'Lickin' on both sides' was one of the best uk garage/rnb album of the years 2001/2002.
Now, the new album.
There are a lot of 'slow and quite songs', some good garage hits, good RnB / Hip-Hop, but not that good like the old album.
1. My Song: good vibe, good bass, good music,... like darkchild music, [5 stars]
2. Scandalous: the best song of the album (thank you StarGate Crew), absolutely good music, good mix of garage, hip-hop, rnb. the voices are perfect for this song! [5 stars]
3. Can't get it back: sometimes, it seems, that the voices are not right in place, beat is okay, but not the best, sometimes a little boring, mhhh [3 Stars]
4. Dance your cares away: also a very good song, alesha gives her best, very good sound, top song [5 stars]
5. All in one day: the first 'quite' song, the voices are good, the melody is intersting with varied instruments, but the rest mhhh, [4 stars]
6. Strawberrez: the voice at the beginning sounds like a childrens voice, too slow, melody is something for mariah carey, but not for mis-teeq! where is the vibe? [2 stars]
7. Nitro: yeah, alesha at her best, very good vibe, good bass and melody, mix of RnB & Hip-Hop, absolutely top! [5 stars]
8. Home tonight feat. Joe: good 'ballad' feat. joe, ok [4 stars]
9. Do me like that: mmmh, the vibe is ok, not for dancing, good bass, slow song (when you hear the songs from the old album), the beginning is like 'if i could go!' of angie martinez [3 stars]
10. That's just not me feat. baby cham: baby cham is not bad, the melody is mostly one note, good vibe, not for dancing, perhaps a good remix would be better! [3 stars]

One of the saddest days for music this century came when the then-not-long-for-this-world Melody Maker used a fake piccie of a poohing Craig David as the cover to their issue arguing that UK garage was pushing all the innovative, worthwhile and exciting records (Placebo, presumably) out of the charts. We always found that a little dubious to say the least, but the last two years have made it more laughable than anything else; after all, since then we've heard one of the most leftfield number one singles ever in the form of '21 Seconds', gone slightly stupid over albums from The Streets and Ms Dynamite, and now been introduced to this. Sure beats the Stereophonics, eh...?
Not that 'Eye Candy' is a wholly garage affair (probably for the best, really - do we need any more MJ Cole / Artful Dodger-style letdowns?), although when it prowls down familiar two-step paths it does so with a surplus of style and no little imagination - see, for instance, how 'All In One Day' incorporates dancehall passages, latino instrumentation and an old-skool soul breakdown. And, if there's that much happening on one of the fifteen tracks here, imagine what a smorgasbord the entire album is. The opening of 'My Song' might be reminiscent of the conceit of TLC's previous benchmark 'Fanmail', but from there on in it's left turns all the way, thwacking easternised beats onto a technoid pulse in 'Do Me Like That', stitching up Greek and wah guitars, hula singing and ridiculous scratchadelia over clicky time signatures on 'How Does It Feel', and coming on like a really rude Kraftwerk throwing a party in Marrakesh on 'Just For You'. And it's got 'Scandalous' on as well, which is about as perfect as any hit record this year's liable to get.
Plus!
