    The single is great but unfortunately the most in-depth instrumentally the album ever becomes. Bringing girl-group pop to the hearts of indie fans is a great idea but they could have put a little more emphasis on better instrumentation and song structure. To stay true to pop music doesn't mean the Pipettes have to regurgitate the same song progressions.

Hopefully, they will spend as much time developing the songs on their next album as they did developing their "cuteness" on this debut. Expand

    What a failure! Awfully boring and annoying record despite it is only 30 minutes long. After those two brilliant singles I've expected a great pop album, but "We Are The Pipettes" is a shame!

    A 5 sounds good for this CD, as the Pipettes get the retro elements right while getting the modern elements wrong.

  1. Every song is laced with harmonies that will weave their way deep under your skin.
  2. And while every song contains allusions to forgotten surf rockish guitar chords and Duke Ellington violins, the real fun is in the way the Pipettes play off each other in harmony.
  3. We Are The Pipettes is possibly the only pure-pop record you need own this year.
