3.0 out of 5 stars Deuce � On The Loose! 19 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Probably the most interesting fact about the now sadly departed Deuce is that one of their four members, Lisa Armstrong, is the long-term beau of Ant McPartlin. However, in 1995 London records had high hopes for the foursome, and there were even industry mutterings that we had the "new ABBA" on our hands. Basically, these guys were Steps without the extra member and the success. Which is a shame, because as kitsch pop fluff goes, this isn't bad.
The cover basically sums everything up - the band members are photographed in luminous outfits that look as if there was an explosion in a Lycra factory. The album is the musical equivalent of this; self-consciously camp (obviously there was some marketing at the pink pound going on here) but sweet and glitzy enough to appeal to pre-teen girls too. In terms of album content, the first three songs are probably the strongest and after this, the filler tracks rather outnumber the good tracks. Having said that, "I Need You", the second single is solid, disposable pop complete with plinky ABBA-esque piano interludes. This is by no means a groundbreaking album; for the most part the band sticks to it's major strength - light, up-tempo pop songs, though ballad "Let's Call It A Day" introduces some welcome diversity into what could otherwise be a rather annoyingly repetitive album.
How Many Good Tracks? Six, out of 11.
Best Track: On the Bible is a gloriously camp anthem with a great singalong chorus.
Worst Track: Kiss It is a disappointing note to end the album on.
There is a very ABBA-y feel to this album. By no means a great, must-have album it does, all the same seem strange that this band has sunken into obscurity while Steps, just three years later had such phenomenal success peddling almost identical music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Mid 90's Pop 20 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
Remember the legend that is Tom Watkins describing Deuce as 2 Unlimted meets ABBA. Think that basically sums up what you'll find here. Fun, colourful & full of energy Deuce were the perfect mid 90's pop group. Often compared to Steps, for me they packed a much bigger punch. This is an album bursting with life, every track full of joy. An album I've returned to again & again over the years. Brilliant!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute class! 13 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is top. I loved them when I started out in 1994 and I still love them now. 'On the Bible' is a classic. Please, any Deuce fans please write to me!
5.0 out of 5 stars VERY DEUCY INDEED! 16 May 2000
By dl9806@bristol.ac.uk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've always been a big Deuce fan and was disappointed and dismayed by their eventual break up in 1996 - the music world lost out big time! The forerunners to groups such as Steps and Scooch (virtually Deuce clones), the group had a sense of fun and vitality that seems lacking in many other pop acts recently, and 'On The Loose' proves that they were an extremely exciting addition to the fantastic era of mid nineties dance. Including the previously unavailable-on-album pop gem (and criminally ignored) 'No Surrender', this album is a must for fans of all things bright, fluffy and fab! Long live the memory of Deuce...all together now..."I need you to show me the way....tra lalala!" (happy days...!) Perhaps in the future...a reunion? Here's hoping!
5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS SOOOOOOO HOT!!!!!! 11 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
KILLER DANCE ALBUM MADE EVEN BETTER BY THE SECOND DISC OF DANCE MIXES AND THE 27 1/2 MINUTE DEUCE MEGAMIX. THE HOTTEST OF ALL IS 'ON THE BIBLE'. EXCELLENT IN ALL THREE VERSIONS. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST DANCE CD'S OF THE 90'S.
