catfights__spotlightsI am deeply shocked that Sugababes’ best album in quite a while TANKED, and I really do not know why, although some reasons come to mid: the crappy first single released, or maybe the crappy album title? But it just doesn’t seem enough to kill the whole album. The album is definitely one of their very best, with top-notch production from Klas Åhlund who almost produced all of Robyn’s hit self-titled album. The songs that I uploaded are enough evidence to showcase the brilliance of the album. ‘You On A Good Day‘ is one of the best songs of ’08, there is no justification for the label not releasing this as the lead single. “Side Chick“, one of the many fan favorites, is considered Sugababes’ second attempt at rapping (the first being ‘Gotta Be You‘), Amelle’s verse towards the end is one of the albums highlights, while some might find a bit cheesy, I thinks it’s perfection, it introduced the word ‘Meticulous’ to me. ‘Unbreakable Heart‘ is one of their most beautiful tracks, having many melodies, layers and is vocally perfect. ‘Sunday Rain‘, the album’s biggest ballad, and most epic track. If they ever opt for a ballad release, they should go with this. ‘Every Heart Broken‘ (previously known as ‘Murder One‘), the fan-favorite, and my personal favorite. The song is stunning on so many levels making it wrong for people not to hear it, had this been the first single, it’d also saved the album, the song is one of ’08’s top 10 [my chart]. ‘Beware‘ the album’s darkest track, by both lyrics and instruments. It sounds like something found on a Bond movie soundtrack (it would’ve been a better bond track than Alicia & Jack White’s). If you had to download only one song, this is the one. ‘Can We Call A Truce‘ the album’s perfect closer. I really do not know how to describe the song, but all I can say is that Heidi’s verse it practically heaven, you can really feel the emotions in that specific verse. I also love the middle 8, everything that happens after the 3:28 mark is epic. Concluding my first rank, I’ll just say that I hope they don’t sell themselves to make up for this album flopping (even though it IS their best).
