5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant surprise..., 28 July 2003
This review is from: Everything's Eventual (Audio CD)
Having been a fan of Shaznay and Melanie in All Saints, I thought the Appleton sisters were freeloaders; brought in to give the boys something to look at while the others got on with the serious tasks of singing and songwriting.
However, when Fantasy was released I begrudgingly had to admit that I rather liked it. Assuming they'd be a one hit wonder, I thought no more of them until the release of Don't Worry. Sweet & sentimental - it still didn't persuade me to part with my hard-earned cash. It was only when I overheard someone playing "Everything Eventually" that I stopped in my tracks and thought "Wow!" It's such a perfectly chilled summer record and their voices sounded sublime.
That was it for me... I went and bought the album and I can honestly say when there hasn't been a day in the last 3/4 weeks that I haven't listened to at least 3 tracks from it.
My outstanding favourites have to be "Fantasy", "Everything Eventually", "M.W.A" (one of the Appletons summed this up perfectly by saying it's hip hop meets the Andrews Sisters! I love the tight harmonies on this one), "Ring a Ding Ding" (dark and brooding without resorting to bunny boiling) and the superb "Waiting for your Love" - surely this has got to be their next single release?!
And boy! Can those girls sing! No wonder Shaznay kept them in the background!
In short - this is an album that will appeal to fans of good, strong music, tight harmonies and lyrics that span both ends of the emotional spectrum. All this from two damned fine singers who don't take themselves too seriously.
Go and buy it. It's the perfect partner for summer 2003.
