Really like this CD ... some good songs to sing along to into the car !!! she's not the best singer that's quite apparent ... but the production is really good and some catchy songs to pass a boring journey to work ...

Footprints is the debut album from Holly Valance. It was released in the United Kingdom in 2002. It's pop/electro/dance at it's best. If you loved "Kiss Kiss" you should buy this, it's a must have!

Honestly, I assumed this album would be pretty rubbish, but it turns out I was wrong! I just love the way she encorperated that middle eastern vibe that made 'Kiss Kiss' so successful (oh, and of course the video had a big part to play in that) but the album also has some great ballads aswell! I'll just do a quick run-down of the tracks and a mark out of 10!
1. Kiss Kiss - such a great catchy pop tune, admittingly its a cover, but i've heard the original and this is ten times better! The chorus is amazing and you can't help but do the 'kiss kiss' bits when they come! 9/10
2. Tuck Your Shirt In - This is definately 'Kiss Kiss - Part 2' but thats not necessarily a bad thing. The song has all the great bits that make 'Kiss KIss' so wicked, so if you loved 'Kiss KIss' you'll love this! It was going to be her fourth single but for some reason they scrapped it! 8/10
3. Down Boy - I love this track, so fast paced and so incredibly catchy! 9/10
4. City Ain't Big Enough - This song is very acoustic guitar-ee, i'm glad they didn't just pack in all the fast tempo songs at the beginning, this song is very refreshing. I love it! 9/10
5. Cocktails & Parties - A bit of a filler this one .. it sounds kinda like 'Naughty Girl' and kinda like 'City Ain't Big Enough' but that may just be me! Its ok, nothing special! 4/10
6. Whoop - definately a stand out track, instantly catchy, could have made a good single! Has that 'Kiss KIss' appeal in the way you love saying the 'Whoop Whoop Baby' bits! 9/10
7. Hush Now - wicked track, original sounding and everything, easy to listen to! 8/10
8. All In my Mind - has that middle eastern vibe and a loada fast beats and electronic sounds, Another standout track on the album! 8/10
9. Harder They Come - Fast paced pop song, cool enough, but nothing special, but it could be worse! 7/10
10. Help Me Help You - killer ballad, love this! 8/10
11. Naughty Girl - Third single she released, I liked it, I was suprised it didn't echo the success of 'Kiss KIss' and 'Down Boy' ! 8/10
12. Connect - Another great lil song, the noises the man makes are a little bit annoying, the 'ah' noises! 7/10
13. Send My Best - Pleasant enough ballad rounds the album up .. 6/10
If you liked the singles, you'll like the album, thats all I can say!

Holly Valance never professed to being a tip top vocalist or a lyrical genius. Her critics (the media) seemed to overlook this. 'Footprints' is a good pop album, which should be praised seeing as there are hardly any at this present time. However, as a record it is very inconsistent in style, which, isn't neccessarily a bad thing, just noteworhty. Now for the run through:
First you have the middle-eastern twang in tracks such as 'Kiss Kiss' and 'Tuck Your Shirt In' which works very well to create a different pop sound, one that has since been adopted by the likes of Britney amongst others.
Then you have these sort of uptempo ballads in the form of 'Cocktails & Parties' and 'Naughty Girl' where the production seems to emulate that 1990s sound with the drums, strings and squelchy synths (ala Spice Girls '2 Become 1').
Then there is the slightly darker sounding dance beats of 'Down Boy' and 'All In The Mind' that standout amongst the mediocre 'Hush Now' and 'Whoop' - two tracks that aren't bad, but not exceptionally good either.
Now come the two wildcards of the album. The cowboy-esque 'Harder They Come' (reported to be the 4th single before the album was benched) and the electro-R&B-ness of 'Connect'. Both tracks standout profusely amongst the album, but luckily both are able to stand alone as good pop tracks.
In conclusion, this is a very good debut and is likely to please anyone as long as it is given the chance. Buy it.
