While this is not as strong an effort as the re-released version of 'Read My Lips', and does contain some below-average songs, this is still an interesting affair with some priceless gems. The main problem is that some of the tunes do not suit Sophie's voice (which sounds ten times posher than it ever did - perhaps trying too hard to fulfill her stereotypical image)and could be done fuller justice by someone with a more ordinary voice, with particular regard to the bonus track. 'The Walls Keep Saying Your Name' and 'You Get Yours' try to be experimental, and, while intriguing, do not quite pull it off and sound disjointed. 'I Won't Dance With You', however, is cringe-worthy; 'Making Music' is a bore. Look past these awkward moments though and you will agree that this album is still worth five stars. The two singles are irresistably catchy, and 'Another Day' (written by Sophie alone)and 'Love It Is Love' are run-of-the-mill but delightful pop numbers that will without a doubt make you want to move. Good on her for trying to make a slightly different and irreverent dance number though with 'Party In My Head', which has an charm that slowly grows on you and then doesn't fade. What makes the album so brilliant however is the slower numbers. 'Nowhere Without You', which subtley engulfs you, is so beautiful and effortlessly atmospheric. The last two tracks are totally lovable in their simplicity, and refreshingly different from Sophie's past material. On the whole it is must for any fan of Sophie, although you may at first be let down by the patchiness of the album. Let's hope the third album is even better.

Sophie-Ellis Bextor has once again revitalized the dancefloor with her new album, "Shoot From The Hip". Where "Read My Lips" explored the dynamic soundscapes of pop, her new album introduces some unexpected guitar work while never losing that infectious beat. While other divas have opted to create a more sparse groove, Sophie raises the bar by never letting you take a rest from the rhythm. The addition of a mystery cover song (trust me...it's brilliant) makes this a perfect followup!
MAKING MUSIC: Starts out unexpectedly with manic electro-grooves, then launches into some very satisfying beats. I couldn't think of a better way to start out an album than with a song about abstract thinking when writing music!
MIXED UP WORLD: This is the new single, and it works very well as the second track. Human League style intro falls into a fantastic vocal harmony. Sophie reveals her inhibitions of living in a world gone mad, all the while keeping you dancing.
I WON'T CHANGE YOU: How can any song where Sophie lets you know that "She won't change you, but she'll change her underwear" be nothing short of brilliant!
NOWHERE WITHOUT YOU: A softer moment while retaining the beat. The use of backing guitar is a nice touch. The blend between electronic and analog sounds is very soothing and catchy.
ANOTHER DAY: A very excellent blend of 80's electro-pop, rhythm guitar, and symphonic violins layers this song about the strength of a lasting friendship.
PARTY IN MY HEAD: One of the standout tracks, this song sounds like a long-lost James number, with instantly catchy jangle-guitar and hummable hooks. Just when you think this CD should be winding down, Sophie lets you know that we're just getting started!

The follow up to the poptastic 'Read My Lips', 'Shoot From The Hip' shows fantastic progression. Though the lead single may sound a little weak, the album has loads to offer, with a great openeing track and loads more belters! A really coherent album, a bit more diverse than her last, but in a good way. Try and spot for yourself the potential hit singles. Groooooooooovy!

Sophie Ellis-Bextor returns with a fantastic second album. I thought Read My Lips was a pretty good (and unique) album but this one is even better and more consistent. Read My Lips produced some great clubby dance anthems (Take Me Home, Murder on the Dance Floor, Get Over You, Groovejet-If this Aint Love)and Shoot from the Hip follows on from this. On hearing Mixed up World which is another superb dance tune I had to check out Shoot From the Hip and I was instantly hooked on it. Shoot From the Hip is uptempo, electro, catchy sophisticated pop/dance music. It's one of those albums you can listen to all the way through, even the slower tracks are fantasically catchy. Best Tracks: Making Music, Mixed up World, Nowhere Without You, Another Day, Walls Keep Saying YOur Name and the superb hidden track Let's Get Physical.

Absolutely brilliant, I never bought her last album but now i am going to get it.
Listened to this all the way through today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Which is unusual as i normally only listen to one or two tracks on an album. Miss B has outdone herself.

Downloaded the 1st album for free (sorry Sophie, I'm American and you are very unknown here. Just wanted to check it out)
First one made me a fan. Bought this one from amazon.uk. Still no US distribution as far as I can tell so I had to bite the bullet and pay for overseas shipping.
It as good as the 1st, maybe better.
My only gripe: she is a way hotter brunette than a blond. Dye it back!!
