4.0 out of 5 stars Shock of the Century!, 28 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Everything's Eventual (Audio CD)
I heard this album at a friends the other night,and could not believe that this was produced by the apparently less talented half of the defunct All Saints.I bought the album and haven't looked back. I never was much of an All Saints fan, I found them much too inconsistent to be really good, and their albums were largely poor quality padding for their singles.
This is a different cup of tea.The two opening tracks, granted, do give a hint of past influences, but they rapidly leave this behind as the album progresses.It is difficult to know what the influences on this record are. There are hints of hip hop but with deep memorable melody lavishly embellished here and there with big sounding orchestral backing sneaking in and out.It is almost entirely instantly accessible but in a clever quality way, not the type of accessibility that you get bored with after a couple of listenings. Surprisingly there really isn't a low point to this album.Teenage All Saints fans may enjoy elements of this record, but it really is a surprisingly grown up album with a confident mature sound at ease with itself.
Stand out tracks if there are any are Fantasy, Ring A Ding Ding (daft title, excellent music), and Don't Worry.
I still can't beleive this is the Appleton sisters!
Swallow your pride and buy this album.When you get over the shock and disbelief,I am sure you will agree with me that this is by far and away the finest main stream release of the last twelve months.
