Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back with album number four, after baby number two, looking and sounding better than ever; but as she once warned us – it’s a Mixed Up World, and juggling young children, with a recording career, international tours, running club nights with husband Richard and her ongoing commitment as the face of cosmetics brand Rimmel, is not without it’s ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific as usual - buy it for 'Duel'! 11 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this track from Sophie's superb album 'Trip The Light Fantastic'. I've no idea what on earth the first so-called "review" is all about; the album is Sophie's most accomplished and varied work yet. It's also done well in the charts - a number 7 album is a success, not a flop, and a Top Ten single is something many artists would kill for. Personally, although I love this song, I think there are more obvious choices for a single on the album, like 'If You Go', 'Love Is Here' and 'Supersonic', but I still wish her all the best with it.

However, even if you've got the album, you owe it to yourself to get this CD for the amazing new track 'Duel'. Sophie's most recent singles have both had excellent bonus tracks, and this one is no exception. It's actually a cover of a minor 80's hit by long-forgotten German band Propaganda, and although I can't remember the original Sophie's version is fabulous!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Sun's still shining on Sophie..... 2 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
As mentioned elsewhere on this page, this single (from the excellent album "Trip The Light Fantastic" which I also own) is still worth acquiring for the b-side alone! The titular A-side has a nice beat and is catchy enough on its own (even though it has been trimmed a little for the radio market) but doesn't offer anything extra compared to the album version, which in any case is 30 seconds longer. Her cover of Propaganda's "Duel" on the flip side however is absolutely terrific (one of those rare cases where I rate a cover every bit as highly as the original) and as such is the main reason I'd happily recommend this to anybody (fan or not). The only downside is the already oft-repeated gripe regarding the fact this is a two-track CD single and would work better with an extra remix or non-album song thrown in, but to repeat that ad nauseam would be a little unfair and so I won't bother. So to sum up, if you like Sophie - buy it and likewise if you want a modern take on an 80s synthpop classic. But if you don't want to spend a wadge of your hard-earned cash for the a-side alone and 80s covers aren't your cup of tea, get the album instead. Can't make it any clearer than that!

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent single - but why only 2 tracks? 8 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another catchy track from Sophie and dripping with class as usual. Coupled with another unreleased track making this a must-buy item for us fans.
However, why on earth do Polydor keep releasing 2 track CD singles in the UK and Europe? Hardly great value. Especially when remixes regularly appear on the download and vinyl versions. Also, the Australian release of 'Catch You' (another 2 track job here) contained 4 tracks AND the video. If record companies want physical sales to pick up then they must really start making these releases better value-for-money. They certainly used to be! And this is why I have been forced to give a 3-star rating to my favourite female singer. It's not Sophie's fault, it's Polydor's!
