  • Summary: Australian identical twin sisters Jess and Lisa Origliasso make their teen-pop debut as The Veronicas with this 12-track set, produced by Max Martin (Britney Spears), Clif Magness (Avril Lavigne), and others.

  1. This is the best pop album of the year and what Ashlee Simpson wishes to be.
  2. The Veronicas are sassy and sexy, not trashy, and they show humor and heartbreak here, which helps elevate their debut to the top ranks of 2000s teen pop.
  3. Guilty pleasure or not, these girls won't be a Secret for long. [17 Feb 2006, p.76]
  4. 60
    The ballads, which are copious, are dull. [Mar 2006, p.115]
  5. The Secret Life Of The Veronicas won't ever be considered anything more than what it is: utterly disposable, shamefully enjoyable, and transparently unoriginal music that, in a just world, will spend its brief moment in the sun entertaining the 11 year olds who wouldn't dare miss an episode of That's So Raven.
  6. Feels like it was designed by committee.
  7. The softer ballads, such as “Speechless”, don’t work quite as well as the more upbeat fare.

    This album is just incredible! I've been listening to it for years and I still love it very much! The melodies, lyrics...just perfect! They are very talented girls. Collapse
