    It is good for a debut album but could have been better, the vocal save some songs despite the other to save themselves by themselves.
    Highlights: We Are Who We Are and Sterio Soldier
    Lows: Madhouse and Love Drunk

    A decent first time effort for X-Factor's winning group Little Mix. The unfortunate truth is that there was a lot of expectations that were not met by this release. Download: How Ya Doin'?, DNA, Wings.

    Great debut album from these very talented young girls! A nice selection of catchy pop songs lead by the single 'Wings'. They are mostly upbeat songs that get you in nothing but a good mood :)

    It might be a decent pop album for the most part, but, when you compare it to works of Britain's most powerful and acclaimed pop act of the last decade Girls Aloud you can't help but realise that Little Mix's DNA is somewhat basic at best. It creates no new sounds and unlike the work of Girls Aloud doesn't have any distinctiveness.

It's a good pop album, but the power pop created by Girls Aloud (Xenomania) will always be that little bit better. Expand

    Little Mix made a great job in their debut album . They have amazing voices and they really know how to use it and they did a very good job with DNA .

    A decent effort, nothing special though. Not impressed at all. I don't know why they included Love Drunk or Make You Believe on it, really bad tracks.

    THIS IS THE BEST ALBUM OF THE WORLD!! I think that after PCD it's the best album of a girlband and one of the bests of the year. Just Will be the second when album 3 COMES OUT!!! LOOOOOVE THIS ALBUM

    The album is good, but not great, many songs are boring and with a sickening crash. But is addictive and great songs like Always Be Together and Turn Your Face.

    I rule out the album only Case Closed, Going Nowhere, How Ya Doin, Love Drunk, Madhouse, Stereo Soldier. These are songs that spoil the album, taking them the album is perfect.

    This album is horrible.
    Most of the music is no good and the vocals that appear are the more Perrie.
    Salute to improve on them a bit, but in the DNA they were horrible, unique vocals that were saving were the Perrie and Jade (RIP Leigh and Jesy).
    One of the only good songs is Turn Your Face.

    The music market is full of boy-bands and male vocalist, so female great vocalist, but what about a girl-group? There are none of them since Spice Girls.

There are none of them since Spice Girls. And finally a group appeared, make a strong impact in UK and then win The X-Factor one of the most important worldwide reality show. After that, they came with this album that totally contrast her Winner's Single "Cannonball" and really changed the way we saw a girl-group. 4 Vocalist, totally different in their own way, same as a group, and bring us a pop-catchy, non boring and full of good beats, lyrics with content and out of the bad image a star can show, unique style and also the 4 girls are beautiful without any surgery? C' me on, we have a really NICE group in way to become a huge success, and it won't come by the fact of a relationship with a one direction member, oh no! After it, everybody check what this girls sing and i can tell, more than one gets impacted by their AWESOME vocals. Tracks to be consider: The whole album
    Tracks to check out as a possible single: Madhouse, Pretend It's Ok, Stereo Soldier, Red Planet.

    Verdadeiras rainhas, belos vocais, letras maravilhosas, um arranjo encantador, um dos melhores "primeiro album" que eu ja ouvi!
    Não é atoa que ganharam o TXF, merecem!

    With placid, feline production, tight harmonies and breezy beats, much of DNA ambles along the well-trodden path of the temperate demi-ballad. But it's the ventures away from this that prove Little Mix function far better either side of mid-tempo.
  2. The main duty of pop is to be catchy, and it's a duty which DNA mostly shirks miserably.

    A solidly enjoyable, radio-ready pop album.
