5.0 out of 5 stars It's A Cheeky Partytime!!!!!, 11 Aug 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: PARTY TIME (Audio CD)
Love them or not, you have to hand it to the Cheeky Girls. Raking in more money than Girls Aloud & One True Voice, they've gone from making the popstars judges fall about laughing to becoming POPSTARS in their own right.
PARTYTIME is the first album from Monica & Gabriela, & they haven't just given us 12 carbon copies of the Cheeky Song- there is a surprisingly diverse collection of songs here....
1: Cheeky Song(Touch My Bum)- Well, we all know this one! This started the twins on their path to fame!
2: Salsa In The Disco- Starts off with a Spanish intro and launches into a fast & furious chorus! Instantly catchy & Latino flavoured.
3: Take Your Shoes Off - the second single. The Cheeky Girls in pure pop style.
4: Get The Party On - this is a take on "chirpy chirpy cheep cheep" Sparkly euro pop in a steps-esque style, this one stays in your head for ages!
5: Celebration - Very disco, very 70's! Could be a future single.
6: Summer Fun - yet another style, this is Monica & Gabriela in a reggae style. Will chill you out & is a perfect summer song.
7: Cheeky Holiday - the girls take on Boney M's tune, and the 3rd single. This one has brilliant ad libs, makes me laugh every time!
8: Micky Blue - back to the classic "cheeky pop" this song is agreat laugh. listen to the lyrics, that tell the story of them falling for the same guy. In the end the girls suggest "pick us both and never mind!" Another one to make you giggle.
9: Hip Hop - yet another style here, trying a pop-hip-hop vibe. Not the most instant track on the album, but still good.
10: Magic - Typical cheeky tune here, similar backing to "take your shoes off" Very Europop!
11: Espangnola Dream - was talked about as being the second single. Typical Cheeky style here, it's the most similar song to "Cheeky Song" on the whole album. Its a catchy one, but l'm glad it wasn't the follow up as it is very similar in style to their first hit.
12: Follow My Star - To finish it off, the girls give us a ballad. If it wasn't for the accents you may not think it was the same group. Very nice song, shows they can be serious. (but we love then when they are having fun as well!)
So, a more diverse album than I was expecting. I was ready for a lot of pop songs filled with the usual cheeky invites to "Sing with us" etc, but the twins experimented with a lot of styles and gave us a varied, album. It all has their cheeky style there though! The ballad is the surprise of the album - it's a little like 2 become 1. Give it a go, and keep it tongue in cheek!
These girls aren't trying to change the face of music forever- they just want you to kick back, let your hair down, take your shoes off and have fun!!!!
Great effort girls!
