  1. Out of Control is more of a lucky dip, with scintillating trinkets and humdrum knick-knacks.
  2. Despite ear-catching touches such as the deadpan voiceover on 'Love Is the Key,' nothing hits the spot like the Phil Spector-like single 'The Promise,' one of this year's better chart-toppers.

I used to class myself as a die hard Girls Aloud fan, I'm aware their albums have never been outstanding, but they have always been at least 50% likeable (unlike Tangled Up that was about 60%). This album is a mess from start to finish, it's saved by the singles they released that to be fair, are electro/pop gold. I'm struggling to right much else, it's just awful, wish washy, ASAP music that means nothing. Sorry Girls. Full Review »
