Watch your backs, people, for the armour-plated Girls Aloud stretch hit-machine is swinging in to dock again and it will not wait for you to move out of the way. Au contraire--it literally has you in its full-beams. The girl group that many had, as a matter of course, written off the moment the TV talent show they won ceased transmission, hit the ground dancing furiously with album number four, covering as dizzying a myriad of styles as we have grown accustomed to, courtesy of celebrated pop production house Xenomania, with all the propulsive force of a freshly cracked atom (and the ability to still apply their make up without smudging). Tangled Up is draped in neon with strobe lights matching every throb of its very up-for-it pulse--theres plenty for clubland to get excited about from the sleek Kylie-esque "Call the Shots", 80s chart-house of "Girl Overboard" and full-on drum n bass (with not a hint of irony) on What You Crying For. Elsewhere the likes of the excellent styled disco "Cant Speak French", Gwen Stefani overtones on the irresistible "Black Jacks" and vocoder future-power-funk of "Sexy! No No No..." amount to some of the best material theyve released. If you wanted to be critical you could deem them mere mannequins off which these peerlessly crafted songs hang, but everythings such a perfect fit those complaints seem moot. Sets a high benchmark for pop music in 2007. --James BerrySee all Product Description

Here's my Track By Track review:
1. Call The Shots - A sultry and mesmerising affair to begin with, a slick mid-tempo electo tune, with some gorgeous vocals from Nicola in the middle eight.
2. Close To Love - Definite potential single, this is catchy and exciting, with the usual off-the-wall GA stamp that made songs like Biology and Something Kinda Ooh brilliant.
3. Sexy! No No No - A veritable Pop Hurricane! This song begins with a haunting electric overture, and crescendos with a torrential storm of angry, sexy pop.
4. Girl Overboard - Think Bananarama in their Heyday, with a modern twist. This is Nu-80s, and it's hot.
5. I Can't Speak French - With the witty lyrics, this had the potential to be brilliant...the melody is not the strongest though, and it fades into something of a filler track.
6. Black Jacks - Again, this is a new sound for the girls. Quite dark, with a slight 70s rock feel...interesting.
7. Control Of The Knife - Reminiscent of Kate Nash/Just Jack, this is the suppposed 3rd single from the album. Sees the girls go off on another classic GA tangent. Very similar to Watch Me Go from Chemistry.
8. Fling - This is absolutely amazing! From start to finish this is the standout track on the album, and if it isn't a single I will be disappointed. Has slight allusions to Bassment Jaxx and some of the best lyrics on the whole album.
9. What You Crying For? - Another interesting one.Read more ›
Tangled Up is no exception. In keeping with tradition, Girls Aloud's fourth studio album delivers some of the cheekiest, most genius lyrics of our times and whats more....there's not a cover in sight!
In true Girls Aloud style, 'Close to Love' and 'Girl Overboard' kick us off by leaving you desperate to go clubbing, whilst the haunting almost-ballad 'Crocodile Tears' closes an album you just won't want to end.
'Black Jacks' sees a brand new 'chanting' side to the girls, whilst 'Cant Speak French' is a nice break from the electro-dance feel of other songs on this album.
So many hidden gems, so many quality tracks. The more you listen, the more you understand the true brilliance of this album. Even the tracks that didnt hit you straight away begin to really stand out.
This has to be one of the best albums of Girls Aloud's career.
In a world filled with indie rubbish and sloppy American import trash, Girls Aloud are a precious rarity. As Nicola puts it so brilliantly in the album's booklet, it's really annoying when bands start off well but then go downhill from then on. Thank God then that it's been the opposite for Girls Aloud, Tangled Up proves they really do just keep on getting better. Like always their albums are consistently good from start to end, filled with state-of-the-art pop tunes that fulfill all the criteria - they're fun, catchy and damn good to dance too.
So let's have a look at what the gorgeous girls have treated us to this time round.
First up is Call The Shots, a song that oozes class and is accompanied by a brilliantly stylish video. I think one of the reasons why this song has been so successful is that not only is it a fantastic pop record but it represents Girls Aloud showing a new maturity to their music, something that has allowed more universal appeal to the public and appealing to critics, hence the BRIT award nomination this year.
Close To Love is 80s synthpop dancefloor amazingness. Now, Girls Aloud are famous for their witty, feisty lyrics but this takes it to a new level. Any song that has the line 'Guy with the terrible hair, back off' is a winner in mye eyes. Fling continues in much the same vein with some seriously suggestive lyrics but this time put to a riotous punk-rock bit of guitar thrashing tumbling into a filthy bassline.
Sexy! No, No, No... is still my favourite Girls Aloud song, holding a particularly special place in my heart. It sounds like something Depeche Mode would come up with, a storming mix of rock and electro and with that amazing video.Read more ›
It doesn't have the variety of previous Girls Aloud albums, which isn't a bad thing (the songs are all dance/techno type tracks), there isn't a single boring ballad to be found :) Crocodile Tears is the slowest track, it is the weakest on the album but still a very good track.
Stand out tracks are:
Control Of The Knife: the beat is absolutely amazing, Cheryl and Sarah rule this track and the trumpets-oh my :D love it!!! Rumoured to be the 3rd single from the album
Fling: the lyrics are quality, Sarah's vocals once again are the highlight and I love the way Nadine sings "body like a work of art"
Can't Speak French: this is the typical mish-mosh of styles GA do so well, the girls themselves love this track so expect it to be a future single release
Sexy! No No No: the 1st single from the album and one of Girls Aloud's best tracks
Call The Shots: not as ground breaking as most GA singles but a great song which is more laid back than most of Tangled Up.
Black Jacks and What You Crying For deserve a special mention-BJ would be perfect if it wasn't for the chanting, some will love it and it will probably grow on me but it just doesn't do it for me-great song otherwise though. WYCF is another excellent track, just not as brilliant as the others mentioned above.
Close To Love, Girl Overboard, I'm Falling and Damn are great tracks as well-there really isn't a track to be skipped over on this album!
The only negative thing I can say about this album is that Nicola doesn't get enough lines.Read more ›

Brings back old generation of music from the earlier years
I love Girls Aloud, I have all of their cds and dvds. This is a great album, not my favourite but nonetheless a fantastic album. I wish they would reunite...Published 19 months ago by Sheila Juaristi
