Taller in even more ways,
This review is from: Taller in More Ways (Audio CD)
The album title seems especially fitting this time round, given the departure of Mutya.
Now, the album itself is worthy of a 5 star rating - without a doubt. "Taller in more ways" is easily the Sugababes best album, with every track as stellar as the last. However, re-releasing this record with not much new on it - is taking liberties and this is why I have given this re-release a 3 star rating. Would it have hurt to have included the video to "Red dress" or a couple of bonus tracks...?
One of my gripes with this album is that Amelle didn't re-record the entire album. This seems very half-assed and lazy in my opinion and doesn't warrant a 2nd purchase for those who own the original release. It's also a shame, because Amelle has a great voice and by having her re-record the enitre album - it would've given me (along with many others) another reason to buy the record, as well as cement her as a Sugababe.
My 2nd gripe is the new track "Now you're gone". Whilst it is a nice track - it shouldn't have been tagged on the end of the album after the amazingly epic "2 hearts". This track was one of the most amazing and beautiful finishes to an album I'd heard and it should have stayed that way.
If you do not already own this record, then I suggest you buy it - because it is a brilliant album. However, if you bought this album the first time 'round, I wouldn't bother purhasing it again. There isn't enough additional content on the re-release to warrant a 2nd buy. Save yourself the money and purchase the bonus track off of iTunes.
- The album itself is a definite 5 star!
- The lack of extras and inclusion of Amelle in this re-packaged edition gets 3 stars.
