Absolutely DIVINE

5 out of 5 stars

What can I say… attitude, chic, cool, fresh... absolutely worth buying! The best pop album this year I must say esp if u like a complicated, edgy and ClassySassy pop with ska, electronic and raggae influences. The vocal arrangements have the All Saints trademark all over them. Who can make ” oohh tiki tiki tiki” sounds cool. LOL

Shaznay Lewis is such a classy song writer. This album is less moody than their last 2 albums. It has a lot of funky beats and interesting vocals.

My take on the tracks:

Rock Steady 9/10

A good first single from the album. Fresh sounding. The raggae ska influences work well with the girls’ vocal arrangements. It debuts at no 3 this week which is good enough for a band who faded into obscurity for 5 years.

Chick Fit 9/10

This will be the second single planned for release. It’s a bit different from any of their previous work until you hear the tight harmony and minor-keyed chorus. Electronika Pop with attitude. It will definitely hit the top 3 at least.

On & On 7/10

This is like a follow up to Pure Shore. It’s nice and haunting but it sounds like pure shore.. which is actually more of a good thing than bad for those who love their moody take on pop.

Scar 8/10

Groovy beat with funky brass… very raggae but fresh. A big favourite to be the 3rd single.

Not Eazy 9/10

Funky and a bit retro. Shaznay’s vocal is a bit more prominent here. Fantastic!!! This should be the third single.

Hell No 7/10

This track is less outstanding but the arrangement for the chorus is quite clever IMHO. A grower.

One Me & You 8/10

This single is a reminder of when they used to work with William Orbit. Love this track. The chorus bit is cool.

Headlock 7/10

This is esp for funk rock fans. Catchy beat.

Too Nasty 8/10

Nicole sounds a bit like Gwen Stefani on this track. Another clever arrangements and crazy beats.

In It To Win 7/10

Another moody take on pop. An All Saints trademark.

Flashback 7/10

Funky and rocky.

Fundamental 6/10

A good mellow last track on the album. It gives you a final reminder of why they are such a great group.

This album is indeed a must have…an album with NO fillers deserves 5 stars!!!! BUT be warned: You won’t find any bubble gum pop on this album!!!! It’s for the serious music lover haha
