  • 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.
  3. Although All About Us is good, glossy pop, any empathy lurking in these tales of teenage persecution is lost in translation.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. But if t.A.T.u. represents the tippy-top of the marketing universe, it also represents the bottom third of pop songwriting.

    Even those who prefer rock music will agree that this is the best kind of pop there is, it's not bubble gum and it's not poser punk.

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

    tATu begin to outgrow the lesbian shtick, and they are better off without it. Their voices seem more at ease singing the new material. For tATu begin to outgrow the lesbian shtick, and they are better off without it. Their voices seem more at ease singing the new material. For some reason, they shy away from two-part harmonies which could only make the songs more powerful. The outstanding tracks are as follows: "Gomenasai," their apology to their Japanese fans who were treated to a circus rather than a performance. "Crave," a gentle and mornful song about two girls who can't get their priorities in life straight. Also there is the thoroughly enjoyable "Friend or Foe," which carries the story of a strained friendship on a catchy melody that reminded this listener of the best James Bond theme songs. Many reviewers are using their first album - with its thinner choice of memorable songs - as a measuring stick for "Dangerous and Moving." The new album surpasses the old and is free of the artificial controversy created by tATu's former hack manager Ivan Shapovalov. The end result is a collection of songs that have a true erotic allure. It's doubtful that the tATu act will survive long enough to produce a third album, but one can always hope. Expand

Three years later, the Russian super-duo returns with a new look, new sound, and a better approach. Opting for artistic credibility this time around, they Expand
