4.0 out of 5 stars Back, Ready and Rock Steady! 19 Nov 2006
By Joey
Format:Audio CD
I first discovered All Saints a year or so after their breakup, and purchased their first album at a carboot stall for under a pound. In all honesty, I wasn't too keen on the CD and left it on a dusty shelf where it remained

A while later, I decided to give them a second chance and bought their second album "Saints and Sinners", and boy was I impressed! It stayed playing on my Stereo for sooo long. I later revisited the first album too, and got more into it.

When I heard they were reforming I couldn't believe it. I loved the Rock Steady song, and knew I had to get this album...the verdict?

I can say with all honesty that this album, despite not having the best sales, is truly 1 you need to go and buy NOW if you havent already. Sure, there are a few fillers which are OK, but nothing here is terrible. Some of the songs such as Flashback, Chick Fit, and my personal favourite Too Nasty will no doubt be playing on "Repeat" for ages, and keep your foot tapping. There's something for everyone here, and you can really hear the many different influences. Whereas Shaznay wrote almost all the songs in older days, now all the girls have tried their hand at songwriting. It's a great effort, and good to see Natalie and Nicole getting more involved in the group as a whole. In Rock Steady, Nicole gets to sing a whole verse, and her voice really shines through.

All Saints have definitely matured in the years since their split, and this album is 1 you definitely dont want to miss out on, I urge you to buy this now!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a comeback! WOW!! 13 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
O.K lets start by saying i bought this album the day of release based on there last album Saints and Sinners which over the years has become one of my favorites album. Plus there new Single 'Rock Steady' has got stuck in my head. and lets just say I am not disappointed its absolutely outstanding its so mature and blends together perfectly, There has been so much bitching in the press from the likes of girls aloud its claiming they have stolen 'there sound' which is totally un-true the only thing i can think of is Girls aloud feel a bit nervous as suddenly a huge band from the 90's has made a huge comeback as girls aloud fans are getting older and are looking for a new mature sound to listen to and I think they will find it in the all saints.

This album is way more daring than anything any girl group would try at the moment its got r and b, ska, pop, chilled tunes its just simply amazing.

Stand out tracks for me already are' on and on' 'chick fit' 'one me and u' and 'headlock'

buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back 15 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Back in the late 'Nineties, when the Spice Girls ruled the airwaves, All Saints were the tougher, cooler, more credible alternative. I was only ever a casual fan, but became more interested when they teamed up with William Orbit (fresh from his sterling work on Madonna's 'Ray Of Light' album) and produced the two terrific singles 'Pure Shores' and 'Black Coffee' (I remember wishing at the time they'd followed Madge's lead and made a whole album with him). However, it was soon after this that the band, who had been dogged by rumours of catfights and grudges within the group since their first album, finally imploded. The individual members went on to have brief (VERY brief in Mel Blatt's case) solo careers but they never matched the success they'd enjoyed together. End of story... or so it seemed.

Six years later and they've suddenly re-emerged with a new album, 'Studio 1'. The intervening years have seen all the girls become mothers, which no doubt helped to mellow them and put things in perspective, and they've overcome their differences and reunited. I really didn't know what to expect, but 'Studio 1' turns out to be an impressive return and perhaps their most consistent work to date.

The single 'Rock Steady', which opens the album, is a fairly good indication of the group's new sound, which has added some reggae influences to their usual blend of pop, soul and r'n'b. It actually sounds not unlike their spiritual successors the Sugababes (which I mean as a compliment), and it's the most obviously chart-friendly track, but after a few listens other quality moments emerge. Despite the overall flavour, there is some surprisingly varied material here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still All Saints.. 13 Nov 2006
By Jay
Format:Audio CD
They split ..went solo ..did TV ..and came back - and all of that seems largely influential on this album (well ...except for the jungle). This is album I feel falls right in the middle of the Appleton effort 'Everythings Eventual' and Shaznay Lewis' 'Open'. I can even hear hints of 'see me' - One of Mel Blatt's few solo outings in places. This album feels as though it's pretty much picked up where 'Saints and Sinners' left off over 4 years ago. For me - it works. It feels like a clash of William orbit with somethin more to the right mainstream (though not a producer on the album) in places - most mentionably on 'On And On' - quite a sweet piece of music - and My personal favourite on the album 'Fundamental'. There's noteable references to bashy rnb - in 'headlock' (another favourite) 'hell no' ..and 'Flashback' we see bouncy production and feisty lyrics to match. 'Headlock' in particular feels like it could've belonged on Shaznay Lewis' 'Open' - though fits much more appetisingly here. Beyond the afformentioned, Tracks such as 'Not eazy' and 'One me and you' serve almost as 'part 2s' to other tracks on the album ('Not eazy' sounding very much like 'Rock Steady' to begin before moving on ..and 'One me and you' feeling like the link to 'On and on').

All in All - A really impressive comeback ..different enough that it's fresh - but still very much All Saints.

4.0 out of 5 stars underrated
It's a very good album. It's the comeback that the All Saints deserved. Rock Steady is a little disapointing but the rest of the tracks make up for it.

Less a 'reunion' album but more a "continuation" (as Melanie Blatt said). If this were simply a one-off reunion, they'd have chucked all the Pure Shores/Black Coffee-esque songs... Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars very poor comeback
with 5 years since their last album this album sounds like it was written in a week and recorded in 3 days.

i found it very boring and non of the songs made sense.
