Sugababes - Catfights and Spotlights

The most successful girl group of this century are back with their sixth album.




Entitled Catfights and Spotlights it kicks off with their recent hit single Here Come the Girls and it's fair to say that much of the album follows suit in this soul train vein.

This album sees the girls stepping away from the bubblegum pop and instead geting a little bit more soulful.

The album is tinged with arrangements reminscent of The Supremes, and represents an altogether much more grown up sound for the band.

They worked with acclaimed Swedish producer Ahlund whilst recording, whose previous credits include Britney Spears and Robyn.

The collaboration brings out the best in both, as Pharell was to Madonna's Hard Candy and Xenomania is to Girls Aloud, Ahlund could well be to the Sugababes more mature sound.

Side Chick is a 90s R'n'B sassy and sleek number that hits your right between the eyes, whilst You on a Good Day is a brilliant and infectious throwback to The Supremes.

The strings are out in full force on the weepy ballad Can We Call a Truce.  The cracked vocals tugging away at the emotional heart strings.

The collaboration with Taio Cruz on the track She's Like A Star is also worthy of a mention, with it's dizzy refrain and big bass it's a bona-fide r'n'b sensation. A club hit that'll be rocking the dancefloors from dusk 'til dawn.

The album also comes with an acoustic cover of About You Now.

Although it may not quite Push the Button, it's still a classy grown up affair full of tender sentiment and witty one-liners and moments of brilliance.
