Product Description

Siobhan Donaghy's decision to quit the Sugababes just before they became the coolest of household names may have been spectacularly ill timed, but Revolution in Me suggests that her departure was inevitable. While her former band mates, along with Siobhan's replacement Heidi, have gone on to make chart-eating pop sexy again, Donaghy's debut album is an altogether more complex, sophisticated and eccentric vision. As a clue to where she's coming from, it's worth remembering that she--along with All Saints/Massive Attack producer Cameron McVey--wrote the first Sugababes single: the effortlessly sultry "Overload" came with the most unlikely of pop add-ons, a surf guitar solo.

With McVey again as her writing partner, Donaghy combines in Revolution in Me the left-of-centre genius of "Overload" with the emotional outpourings of an older, wiser and clearly bruised artist. "Overrated" and "Twist of Fate" are the bitter and twisted singles, all churning guitars and jaded cynicism. "Nothing but Song" is a deceptively sweet go-to-hell anthem, "Little Bits" simmers with anger and "Man Without Friends" rolls along lost and dejected until the spirit-rousing chorus erupts at the end. And while none of her songs are catchy in the traditional sense, the purring "As You Like It" and "XY" (with its cartoon glockenspiel) are mercilessly addictive. --Dan Gennoe

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of the year 9 Oct 2003
By Simon Thomas VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a truly amazing offering from the soul of Sugababes debut album. Whilst the style is quite similar to 'One Touch', this album is so much more sophisticated, much stronger and displays the diversity that should have shot this album to the top of the charts, not #101.
1. Nothing But Song - this is a brilliant opener, so catchy, but perhaps a little too reliant on Siobhan's high notes. Sounds quite ordinary the first time through, but REALLY grows on you.
2. Man Without Friends - the problem with this track is that it's sometimes difficult to remember which one it is, as the title bears little relation to the song. When you've stuck it in the CD player, however, it makes a huge impact. Brilliant.
3. Overrated - for me, the best song on the album. A disappointing chart position does not do justice at all to this guitar-lead ditty. Inspiring lyrics - unlike the impersonal stuff usually trolled out by girl groups. Amazing chorus.
4. Little Bits - I didn't like this when I first heard it, but it is SO good - the chorus really grows on you, and it's another heartfelt song.
5. As You Like It - the third best song on the album, with the best verses I've ever heard. usually verses are just used to bridge the gaps between choruses, but the melody of these verses and the lyrics "since ive been dealing with you / my principles have taken a move..." are fantastic.
6. XY - an extremely clever song, seeing a relationship in terms of XX and XY chromosones. A little 'cheesy' in places - "our love is fully blown" but how much rhymes with chromosone?
7. Suasex - dark! I didn't really understand this song, but it's very clever and good to listen to, even if it goes over my head. So much better than the filler tracks on 'One Touch'

Format:Audio CD
Firstly i have to write that i love the sugababes and always have. It baffled me why their one touch album, so highly praised by everyone, sold well below expectations. what was noticeable immediately about that album were the beautiful vocals of Siobhan Donaghy who having apparently and allegedly been mistook for a punchbag by her ex bandmates took off. Not even twenty she has since suffered a breakdown and, although not what anyone would wish on any talented young person, this has fuelled her excellent solo album which it seems most people are unaware of. siobhan should be livid with her publicist because this is a real shame. Her voice is just wonderful, the songs subtly snare you in and the album has hardly left my cd player since its release several weeks ago. Unlike didos dull chart-topper there is a distinctive beauty and fragility in Siobhan that is both heart-breaking and beautiful. I can not recommend another album this year more than this. More beautiful than damien rice, more layered and original than McKay and if she gets the support she deserves this little lady should be collecting award after award for such a magnificent return. Brave and inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated 5 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Siobhan Donaghy could be one of the most talented songstresses in the UK, and with the help of credible collaborator Cameron McVey she has produced an album with more depth and consistency than that of your typical pop starlet.
Her debut is a continuation of the work she began with her former band mates. ‘Look at Me’ and ‘Promises’ from One Touch are the best examples of that, but Siobhan revisits the sounds and themes of her previous work from a somewhat edgier angle these days. Under the influence of indie and alternative genres, the old soul sound has been replaced, but it still contains a sprinkling of that original magic, which creates something rather unique in my opinion.
Yes, comparisons to Dido are vaguely justified, but songs like ‘Next Human (XY)’ and ‘Suasex’ are great examples of twisted and unusual pop and prove that unlike her older counterpart, Siobhan is capable of injecting a sense of originality into her music. Meanwhile, Kylie could have resuscitated her career a couple of years earlier if she had followed up ‘Confide in Me’ with songs as lush as ‘Little Bits’ or the album’s title track.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most unique album of the last 5 years 9 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After hearing the first single 'Overrated' and being drawn in by the fantastic video, I knew I had to hear more, so I bought the single and also loved the b-sides that came with it. Then I saw the next video 'Twist Of Fate' (though it had very poor airplay) and decided to buy the album as soon as it came out. And I must say... I have never ONCE regretted it. In fact, after hearing it, I decided to go out and buy all formats of her previous 2 singles just so I could hear the other b-sides. I didn't want to miss a single track from this talented ex-sugababe. Now people say it's a shame she doesn't do much publicity, but I view this as a good thing because Siobhan Donaghy is NOT a commercial artist...though I am afraid of her being dropped by her label due to the lack of single and album sales!!!? But let me just exlain why I love this album so much:
I'm not going to review this album track by track, as that has been done SOOOO many times, and basically I would end up saying the same thing for every track... FANTASTIC!! 10 out of 10! Every track on this record made me stand up and really take notice of this girl, from the lyrical genius she is, to the incredible range of her voice. There are beautifully dark down-tempo tracks like 'Faces' and 'Little Bits', and then there are the fun poppier ones like 'Twist Of Fate' and the rather strange but fantastic grower that is 'XY (Next Human)'. If I had to choose a favourite on this album, I honestly couldn't. They all mean alot to me, in totally different ways. I connect on a major personal level with 'Overrated' but also adore the rock anthem 'Dialect' and the fantastic 'Man Without Friends'and 'Iodine'is a corker of a track to end all corkers (hehe), plus it would have made a great christmas single though its actually about politics and war.... Well i'm going to end it there, but I hope by now that if you are debating whether to buy this album or not, I beg you DO IT! It is absolutely incredible :-) Peace out x
