  • Summary: Three years after their sensational debut (and we don't use that adjective in the way that means "outstanding"), it turns out that they aren't schoolgirls, and they aren't lesbians. But what the Russian duo does have on this second album is Sting. Now that's edgy!

  1. taTu, somehow, miraculously, still matter.
  2. If you don't like t.A.T.u, you don't like pop music.

    Starts powerfully... [but] fizzles out with corny ballads. [Nov 2005, p.111]
  4. Julia and Lena's voices are nothing special, and their lyrics are still derivative -- suitable fodder for Charmed or a Rachel Leigh Cook movie, but not the sort of thing that makes a lasting impression.
  5. Since the beats are monotonous, since the songs are insipid and forgettable, since the girls not only can't sing but have no on-record charisma, since there's no sense of style and, most importantly, sense of fun to this whole enterprise, Dangerous and Moving is the worst kind of pop music: the kind that is better to theorize about than to listen to.
  6. Although spunky cuties Julia Volkova and Lena Katina have improved their English-pronunciation skills, the hooks they're handed this second time around are decidedly duller.
  7. But if t.A.T.u. represents the tippy-top of the marketing universe, it also represents the bottom third of pop songwriting.

    They are relly fantastic. I'm from Iran.This album with "Sacrifice" , "All about us" and "Outer space" is the best of them.

    I love this album. There are a couple of weak songs, but otherwise the album is very cohesive. Their production values are top notch as well. I love this album. There are a couple of weak songs, but otherwise the album is very cohesive. Their production values are top notch as well. Their instrumentation is full and complex. I know people love to hate them, but it wouldn't hurt to simply give them the credit they are due. Expand

    Why waste your money on this product when you can buy real porn at your corner store?
