DIFFERENT, FRESH AND UK!
on 18 May 2002
The sugababes have an amazing ability to not only write original songs, not following the pop kleshay, but also to sing them with great vocal staminer. And as if this wasn't enough, they're all still teenagers -I know this will embarress the likes of atomic kitten, and hearsay, who more or less lack the creativity.
...Yes, one touch is full of bouncy upbeat songs, garage joints, and down tempo smashes. The album opens with the smash overload which, although can occassionally get abit repetitive, stands out from any other standard (set by britney spears - not saying too much!) in a unique and highly sophisticated way! The album continues with one foot in and same old story :two extremely well produced songs with a garage meets rnb feel. The album then begins to slow down. Just let it go and look at me are next. These two songs are possibly two of the best songs on the album, but all in all, every track is a challenger xcept for....
....Lush life and one touch. Lush life is to chilled and lacks any purpose for an album like this. It kind of drags on aswell. When I say too chilled, you may think "nothin can eva b too chilled"...well trust me when you here this, you will xperience a different mind frame. One touch is actually quite good. This is also a chilled song, but much better done.
Soul sound, promises, run for cover, real thing and new year are all xtremely good songs, and sang very well. promises and real thing have the same kind of light uptempo pop flavour, but with lyrics that actually fit together, as appose to groups like nsync and human nature. Soul sound is a guitar amputated song with upbeat lyrics and a very catchy melody. New year, the second single off the album is very good. It's an uptempo ballad in its own right. Run for cover is a fantastic pop - ish sng, with a great continuous beat, and an infectious chorus. I'm glad they released this one.
This is all the tracks in order of priority cut.
1 - run for cover 2 - one foot in 3 - overload
4 - Look at me 5 - soul sound 6 - just let it go 7 - promises 8 - new year 9 - same old story 10 - one touch 11 - real thing 12 - lush life
