    Salute is like a dip in a pool of Skittles: tacky, sugary and brilliantly indulgent.

    Salute is an undeniably solid album, and has a lot more going for it than similar efforts from many of Little Mix’s pop peers this year.

    Ultimately, while Salute retains all of Little Mix's infectious, teen-friendly ingredients, it reveals a new recipe for fans whose palates have matured right along with the band.

    With the exception of Little Me, a refettling of Destiny's Child's Survivor, what falls in between is polished enough 21st-century R&B by the numbers, but rather less entertaining.

    Here they sag under the weight of too many wind-swept piano ballads and booming productions seemingly modeled on Katy Perry's "Roar."

I liked DNA but this album is just amazing...it really took me by surprise...the girls sound great together and have definitely come a long way from their X Factor days. I am addicted to each and every track especially Little Me, About The Boy and Competition. Salute is one of the best albums of 2013 and it deserves all the great reviews and success it is receiving. Love you loads Little Mix! Expand

    Little Mix is definitely one of the most talented acts that have entered the musical industry after 2011 (a very productive year forLittle Mix is definitely one of the most talented acts that have entered the musical industry after 2011 (a very productive year for mainstream pop music). But from their teen pop debut album "DNA" to their sophomore R&B-influenced pop record "Salute", these girls have evolved more than any other group in the past decade has. The track Salute is a female statement with great lyrics and a perfect combination of UK pop music and its military sounds, while "Move" and "About the Boy" are very mainstream and explosive pop tracks (with some contemporary R&B beats). As the grown women that these ladies have become, they've learned to deliver some very classic and strong ballads; "Towers" and "Good Enough" show us a lot of emotion, resentment, guilt and a bit of anger too. "These Four Walls", on another hand, is full of apathy, and it's the calm point of this amazing album. It's noticeable that this record has a very strong 90's influence, as seen on the tracks "Boy", "Mr. Loverboy", "Competition" and "Little Me", both assimilable to En Vogue and Destiny's Child music style. And another differential that Little Mix brings with their second album is the well-organized percussion on the tracks "Nothing Feels Like You", "Stand Down" and "See Me Now", where we can see some African drums influence too. Although they have been very underestimated by their record label and Simon Cowell, they've delivered just what the music industry needs: organic and refreshing music for young adults/teenagers, great lyrics and mostly, unquestionably amazing vocals, showing that they're obviously the best girlgroup right now.

Make the songs themselves, and not counting the optimal result of his songs, exelentes voices, and high perfectionism. They go too, angelic voices, all that an artist should have! My current favorite. All the songs were intended, and pass a message! No music is to play out! All are magnificent, especially Little Me and the feminist anthem Salute! Expand

    I still haven't decided which album I like better: this album or their last and also debut album, DNA. Salute's got some great power songs andI still haven't decided which album I like better: this album or their last and also debut album, DNA. Salute's got some great power songs and ballads. "These Four Walls" is actually the only song that bores me. But what's really worth buying this album, is Little Mix's outstanding vocals. My God, these girls can sing! I've seen a few of their live performances, and they sound almost exactly the same as on the album. And although Perrie and Jade are the best singers in the group, they don't really stand out to Jesy, who's voice is very unique, and Leigh-Anne, who's an amazing rapper. Little Mix can do everything from ballads to R&B. I can't wait for their next album. Expand
