Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

All Saints' second album, Saints and Sinners finds them on the run from the melancholic soul-pop of their eponymous debut. Defiantly more direct and sophisticated than its predecessor, this is a resolutely upbeat affair. Fortunately rather than re-invent themselves as men-bashing R&B divas, they have chosen to stick to their usual formula: song-writer, Shaznay Lewis's helium-high voice takes centre stage, Melanie Blatt and the Appleton sisters provide fluffy and light harmonies and a string of producers including William Orbit (Madonna) deliver euphoric, technicolour grooves. The UK version includes two rather pleasant bonus tracks, "I Don't Wanna Be Alone" and "One More Tequila", but the best material appears on the first half of the album. There's nothing quite as sublime as the undeniably feel-good opener, "Pure Shores" (also featured on The Beach soundtrack), but "Distance" a bewitching combination of flamenco guitar, piano and dance-floor friendly beats comes close. Saints and Sinners doesn't exert its power in subtle ways and there are occasions when they don't quite pull off their attempts to be quirky ("Whoopin' Over You"). However there is plenty of weight and breath here, a mood and groove for every occasion, just as long as that occasion is life-affirming. In fact, Saints and Sinners sounds like someone turned the "dark" off!--Maxine Kabuubi

5.0 out of 5 stars What a surprise!!!! 3 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Saints & Sinners turned out to be an excellent album. "Pure shores" opens the work with a style very funky and even something pop. Although maybe it could be like something negative, since it was a single very successful and it would guarantee a first good impression. Personally I don't think it. Then the All Saints shines with "All hooked up", fantastic and amusing that is able to mix the irony with the reality that we gotta live in this moment. " Dreams " and " Distance " continue the album, I think they are not the best in the album, but they don't stop to be good songs. "Black Cofee" that was number one of the British charts, it follows the list. Their only defect consists on looking like each other too much to "Ray of light", obviously to be produced and co-written by William Orbit. "Whoopin' over you" one of the biggest successes in the Saints constitutes, due to the force of the song, although the melody is not very original, later we are in front of "I feel you", song that I don't like too much and that I had not included in the album, or I would have made it as bonus track. " Surrender " is good and the vocal arrangements are excellent, the same as in the whole repertoire. "It's quite amusing and funky also. Then we have "Love is love", the best song in the album for me, with a sound something futurist and very electronic. If it goes out like single will arrive to the number 1!!!. As for "Ready willing and able", I can say that it is fantastic! the same as "Saints & sinners", this last obligatorily it should be single!. Finally I can recommend that you buy the album, but if you already heard the previous CD and you are not in a rigorous sense a FAN of the All Saints, you should get ready for a change very, but very deep

All Saints' second album is even better than their quality debut. Covering a more varied range of styles, Saints & Sinners moves away from the tried-and-tested R'n'B formula and is more varied. Even non-All Saints fans will find something they like on here. The William Orbit produced stuff is definitely the most interesting - the two singles, Pure Shores and Black Coffee, capture that Madonnaesque feel, while Surrender and Dreams are also worthy of the No.1 spot. However, unlike Madonna did with her Ray Of Light album, the Saints haven't just collaborated with Orbit. The Lucy Pearl-like All Hooked Up is produced by K-Gee, who is also responsible for the R'n'B sounding material you can find on here. Highlights include Distance, a splendid fusion of latino and dance, and I Feel You, produced by none other than Mel Blatt's other half ex-Jamiroquai boy Stu Zender. Whoopin' Over You, Ha Ha, I Don't Wanna Be Alone, and One More Tequila prove the gals still know how to have fun and are real funky numbers. Love Is Love is similar to the big beat R'n'B singles flying up the charts these days, very Jennifer Lopez. Meanwhile, Ready Willing & Able gives the girls the chance to astonish us with their amazing harmonies, while Saints & Sinners is a tongue-in-cheek fast-paced track which finishes off things nicely. So the foursome may soon split, but buy this so their legacy lives on!

3.0 out of 5 stars SAINTS AND ALBUM FILLERS 13 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It appears that All Saints really do not know which direction they really want to go in. To play it safe they are covering all areas. "Pure Shores" opens the album but is easily skipped due to complete radio saturation earlier this year. However looking back in retrospect,William Orbits landscape sound gelled well with the Saints harmonies. The second single "Black Coffee" could easily be a track off Madonna's "Ray of Light".It is understandable why Madonna has opted for Mirwais for her new album as Orbits trademark noises are already sounding dated. All Saints resume pole position with the funky track, "All Hooked Up."This is the old Saints sound and suits Shaznays writing - which at times are basic nursery rhymes sexed up, and singing abilities. Its tracks like this that showcase her voice as a 21st Century Billie Holiday.It would be great to see this as the third single so we could see the girls getting a little more funky on TOTP's instead of waving their arms from right to left and looking wisfully towards fresh air, AKA the last two singles. "Dreams" is instantly forgettable."I Feel You" produced by Mel Blatts other half has the possibility of being their "Never Ever" track of this album. As a whole, rather listenable, but rather obvious.

This is a great album and I am very glad I brought it. I think the best songs are 'All Hooked up(which I am surprised did not go to number 1),Love is Love ,Saints and Sinners and Surrender. I would buy this album if you are a big fan of the All saints and like 'Pure sures' and 'Black coffee'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant-better than ever 16 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I can't say I really liked the music All Saints produced before but after hits "Pure Shores and Black Coffee" I decided to give it a go. It's excellent, catchy and bouncy "Saints and Sinners" is not at all what I expected. Usually a fan of old skool and rare R&B, I found this really refreshing. There are some really great tracks. All Hooked Up had me "hooked" straight away (S'cuse the pun!) and Surrender is a stunning tune. The girls have worked a miracle by combining many different types of music. You'll find pop, latino, R&B and country in quite a few of the tracks. This is soooo different to all the cheesy chart music that's out there at the moment. My personal opinion is that this is the best new release out at the moment. Well done All Saints for bringing such a great feel good album, my hat goes off to you!
