SUGABABES Three (2003 UK Special Edition 14-track CD including the singles Hole In The Head Too Lost In You & In The Middle picture sleeve CID8137)
The lyrics "It's about the music, not about the face" hardly represent a breakthrough in political pop theorising. But when the Sugababes sing them on "Whatever Makes You Happy" (the second track on Three, a rather literal title for the group's third album), it's difficult to suspend one's incredulity. After all, while multi-racial dolly mixtures Mutya Buena, Heidi Range and Keisha Buchanan hardly resemble abominable gargolyes, their relatively indignant demeanour (coupled with the lingering durability of classic hits like "Freak Like Me" and "Overload") has been welcomed as an antidote to the abidingly glossy transience of banal girlie pop.
Frankly, the Sugababes are better at making music (with a little cowriting assistance from a coterie of professionals) than pulling faces and "keeping it street". This album, therefore, could have been fatally undermined by getting too dangerous ("Nasty Ghetto" is all hammy, bluesy, back-street melodrama copenned with Linda Perry from 4 Non Blondes) or by such lapses into working-class ingratiation as "Don't wanna spend my time in the VIP / Gotta meet someone who doesn't need publicity". However, the electronic ska of "Hole in the Head", the soothing balladry of "Caught in the Moment" (reminiscent of Neneh Cherry at her most chilled) or the insistent drum loops, ominously squawking melodica and dervish groove of "Situation's Heavy" are powerful enough to sway any cynic while the cheeky R&B of "Buster" (nightclub lothario atttempts to entice some less-than-gullible filly into a cab and back to his pad for the proverbial cappuccino) amuses no end. They'll be back for a fourth album, which is more than can be said for many of their peers. --Kevin MaidmentSee all Product description

BABES, congrats for a wonderful masterpiece! CHEERS!!
“Three” is a good album, there’s no denying it, but you do feel as though it’s missing something that was distinctly evident in “Angels with dirty faces.” The first thing listeners will notice is that “Three” contains many more ballads, where as “Angels with dirty faces” contained only 2 – which were “Shape” and “Breathe easy” and those were not even ballads.
The girls sound much better on this album. The only problem is that on all of the ballads and slower tracks, Mutya ends up singing verses that Keisha or Heidi would have been better off singing. Mutya’s low husky voice is great for the up-tempo tracks, but doesn’t sound so good on the slower tracks. But this doesn’t ruin the album and overall the girls sound better than ever
01. Hole in the head /// A great start to the album. This track just oozes that Sugababes’ flavour and shows that they definitely have their own sound and style.
02. Whatever makes you happy /// Another up-tempo number which again falls into familiar Sugababes territory. This is one of 3 songs on the album where only 1 Sugababe takes the lead and in this track and here it’s Keisha. She also wrote this song without Heidi or Mutya, but they do provide backing vocals and ad-libs.
03. Caught in a moment /// This is very Coldplay / Robbie Williams sounding. It works well and is a cool track, but it shouldn’t have been placed as the 3rd on the album.
04. Situations heavy /// This is one of the albums highlights also and has that distinct old 60’s rock / r’nb hybrid that the Sugababes do so well. A great track that sounds a lot like a 2003 “Overload.” One of my faves.
05. Million different ways /// For me, this is the best track on the album. The beat itself is just HEAVY and the track itself is just SO well produced. The main melody sounds similar to the Bhangra version of the “Night Rider” theme. This sound is different for the Sugababes, but it works. The vocals are tight, the lyrics are tight and it has a similar tone to “Stronger” or “Just don’t need this” due to the dramatic strings. This has to be a future single.
06. Twisted /// This track has a very 60’s swing, mid tempo vibe to it. It sounds like a much better produced and slower version of “Supernatural” from the “Angels…” album. All in all it’s a good track.
07. We could have it all /// Very reminiscent of an All Saints track. Not my fave tune on the album and one I always skip.
08. Conversation’s over /// A mid-tempo track which sounds almost like a track off of Siobhan Donaghy’s album. I’m not too keen on Mtuya’s vocals on the first verse though and felt Heidi and Keisha should have taken the lead here as their voices are lighter. Still, it’s a nice track.
09. In the middle /// This just has the Brian Higgins and Sugababes style ALL over it. The chorus is catchy and the beat itself is heavy as it changes quite a bit during the verses. Not too keen on Keisha’s verse though and some may find it sounds too much like a Girls Aloud track, but I do like it.
10. Too lost in you /// Very reminiscent of “Stronger” and is one of the best ballads on the album. I think it may end up being their 2nd single as the response from this track has been positive.
11. Nasty ghetto /// A track that I thought was Produced by Brian Higgins but is in fact Linda Perry, the mastermind behind most of P!nk’s ‘Misundastood’ and Aguilera’s Beautiful.’ This track has a very gritty sound to it and is (for me) one of the highlights of the album.
12. Buster /// VERY Dr. Dre sounding. Reminds me of ‘The watcher” from Chronic 2001. Another track which shows the Sugababes delving into something different from their pop / rock hybrid. I do like this song alot as it is just straight up r’nb.
13. Sometimes /// The 2nd of the 3 tracks where a Sugababes does the lead and here, it’s Heidi. It’s a ballad which is very reminiscent of Aguilera’s “Walk away.” Heidi takes the lead on the vocals, though Keisha does step in for a couple of lines during the Bridge section, which I felt spoilt the song and was wrong, considering she had a chance to shine on her own in “Whatever makes you happy” and should have left this to Heidi. Mutya and Keisha step in for backing vocals, but Heidi definitely comes into her own in this track.
14. Maya /// A song dedicated to a close member of Mutya’s family who died. (I think it may have been her sister, I’m not 100% sure). It’s a mid-tempo track and it (as you may have guessed) is the 3rd track in which a Sugababe does the lead and here it’s Mutya, although Heidi and Keisha did co-write it and step in for ad-libs and backing vocals. The lyrics are nice and the beat itself is nice. A great track and end to the album.
“Three” is good, but I feel its too top heavy with slow tracks, which in themselves are good, but when you’ve heard their last 2 albums and take what you do from the single “Hole in the head”, you expect it to be more up-tempo. Also, I think the track order is wrong. One of the reasons why “Angles with dirty faces” worked so well was because of the track order - each track complemented the one before and after it. “Three” feels too mish-mashed and up-tempo tracks are placed between a couple of ballads and just when you have a couple of up-tempo party like tracks, you get a ballad thrown in which ruins the mood. Another thing I feel is that “Three” is a lot darker than the “Angels…” album. Its less light hearted and seems less fun and silly than “Angels with dirty faces” which no doubt is a sign of the girls growing up, but still…a couple more bouncy, up-tempo numbers will nonsense lyrics like “Round, round” would have been nice.
There’s something I preferred about “Angels with dirty faces” but none the less, this is a great album and one which shows the diversity of the Sugababes. It’s also well produced and their vocals are a lot more cohesive this time round. Also, Heidi definitely shines through more on this album. A must buy.
