4.0 out of 5 stars All saints, all sass, all class
SPICE GIRLS RULE!! There...thats it. Now I'm going to discuss ALL SAINTS. Their debut, "All Saints" is a little piece of heaven as far as pop albums go. All killer, no filler. Each track oozes attitude. The now legendry pop classic "Never Ever" is the highlight, along with the seriously cool "Bootie Call", the sassy downtempo "Under The Bridge" and the heartfelt...

3.0 out of 5 stars Average album, but their's potential
I often hear a comparison between All Saints and the Spice Girls. While there are undeniable similarities, they are some distinct differences. As a whole, I do like the voices of Spice better, but Shaznay and Natalie have an incredible depth to their voice that is often hidden in their overdone vibrato. Some of the songs are catchy enough, but as a whole the album is...

4.0 out of 5 stars All saints, all sass, all class, 26 Jan 2006
This review is from: All Saints (Audio CD)
SPICE GIRLS RULE!! There...thats it. Now I'm going to discuss ALL SAINTS. Their debut, "All Saints" is a little piece of heaven as far as pop albums go. All killer, no filler. Each track oozes attitude. The now legendry pop classic "Never Ever" is the highlight, along with the seriously cool "Bootie Call", the sassy downtempo "Under The Bridge" and the heartfelt ballad "War Of Nerves"- so basically the singles. But the other tracks are good too. "Trapped", "Take The Key" and "Heaven" are downtempo urban slices of perfection which follow a similar direction as "Never Ever". "If You Want To Party", "Lady Marmalade" and "I Know Where Its At" are party pop perfection. "Beg" is something else- its funky, its catchy, its fun and energetic.
A fine debut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bum wiggling good!, 7 Nov 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: All Saints (Audio CD)
This cd will keep you shuffling along - especially "Booty call" and Lady Marmalade! Never, Ever might disappoint though as its not the version released on single - its slower so be warned! Can imagine it being an essential "girlies getting ready" cd..........

5.0 out of 5 stars very soul, 31 Aug 2006
This review is from: All Saints (Audio CD)
What a pity on some of the reviews I have read here. I don't know about they refuse toi hear All Saints, or attacking them because of the rivality with the SPICE GIRLS. They did completely different types of music. I love the SPICE but they did POP MUSIC. All Saints are great too, but it's a different style.

This is a very good album. "Never ever" has become for me in ONE of favourite soul songs ever! "War of nerves" or "Under the bridge" show they have a soul touch. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Buy it! I miss them.

By A Customer

This is a classic album with songs bringing back lots of memories - if your my age! Otherwise it's just a relaxing CD to listen to to chill out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A girl group that can sing and write, 6 April 2010

This review is from: All Saints (Audio CD)
A girl group that can sing and write. All saints are a brilliant pop (with a little bit of a rock sound in places) act. This has some very good music like Lady Marmalade, Bootie Call and War of Nerves. They done a brilliant job with this album and it sounds good and well written. One of the best pop albums of the 90's

3.0 out of 5 stars Average album, but their's potential, 10 Feb 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: All Saints (Audio CD)
I often hear a comparison between All Saints and the Spice Girls. While there are undeniable similarities, they are some distinct differences. As a whole, I do like the voices of Spice better, but Shaznay and Natalie have an incredible depth to their voice that is often hidden in their overdone vibrato. Some of the songs are catchy enough, but as a whole the album is neither here nor there - not completely R&B and not completely pop either. Which could be a blessing as much as a curse, however the quality of their lyrics and melodies run middle ground also - not to mention I wasn't too fond of their covers. "Never Ever", however, is to AS what "Back for Good" was to Take That. It shows that these girls have great potential and given half a chance can write and sing a good song. Hopefully their next album will pump out more quality songs like NE. If so, their should be no question who's the better girlband group.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly Poor, 6 Jan 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: All Saints (Audio CD)
This must go down as one of the dissapointing albums of all time. Why? Never Ever was a fluke, nothing on this album is even marginally as powerful as that song, it's all middle of the road balladry, so weak that most of it wouldn't pass as an En Vogue b-side.
So there you have it. One of the worst albums EVER, & I've heard a few.

This review is from: All Saints (Audio CD)
They aren't the new Spice Girls at all! They suck! All Saints can't sing, and why did they mess up the song "Lady Marmalade"?!? Their cover's pitiful, as all the other songs from this crap!
