    Where do I begin. 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, wishWhere do I begin.

  1. Out Of Control is, generally, yet another excellent album from a group who may have risen from a lot of people's 'guilty pleasure' to becoming full-on national treasures.
  2. Not their best, but still more consistent than any British indie album released this year.
  3. Out of Control is more of a lucky dip, with scintillating trinkets and humdrum knick-knacks.
