Editorial Reviews

UK edition includes one bonus track, 'We Wanna Party'. 2008 release from the UK's premiere girl group, who continue to take Pop music to places it's never been before. Five albums into their career they are trailblazers who have consistently raised the bar and changed what it means to be a girlband in the 21st century. Working again with the Xenomania team, Girls Aloud have been constantly challenging themselves in the studio. The lead single, `The Promise' sees the girls explore the lush sounds of the '60s. It's a sound that has already proved to be a winner. Even before release the single is already one of the most played Girls Aloud songs on radio. 12 tracks. Polydor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly great album November 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Without a doubt, Out Of Control has received the most mixed reviews of GA's career to date. Half the fans love it, half the fans hate it.

But there's no doubt that is looking to be GA's most successful album yet - it recently reached #1 in the UK album charts, GA's first studio album to reach the top.

My opinion of the album? It's one of GA's best albums yet. I know I say that about every album they release, but this time I mean it. In the ranking of their albums, it would be their second best after Chemistry.

Out Of Control opens with the lead single from the album, "The Promise." This was GA's fourth #1 single, and one of their biggest sellers to date. It's also a very good song. The first time I heard it, I thought it was really weird but it quickly grew on me. The catchy 60's feel of the song was infectious and soon I couldn't get it out of my head. When you hear it on OOC, it's a bit out of place, and not one of the better songs on the album. But on it's own, it's awesome.

Track 2 is "The Loving Kind." This song is famous because it was produced by the Pet Shop Boys. GA fans all over rave about this track, but I don't get the hype. I find this song really boring. It's going to be GA's next single, but I don't agree with the choice. This is not up to GA's usual standards in my opinion. I hardly ever listen to it.

The next track is "Rolling Back The Rivers In Time." On my first listen through of the CD, this was a favourite. And it still is, but I have to be in the right mood, otherwise it bores me. It's got this really cool retro feel to it, and the chorus is really catchy. It also has this interesting acapella opening done by Nadine.

Track 4 is "Love Is The Key." This is one of the other 'meh' songs on the album for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid Packaging February 1, 2009
By Adel
Format:Audio CD
None of Girls Aloud albums been made as Special Edition like this packaging until Out of Control cause by no doubt this is the Girls Best Album so far,

It includes massive hits! Such as "The Promise", "The Love Kind" which was produced by the Legendary "Pet shop boys"

And believe me by saying MANY MORE HITS.

It's a mix of Dance and Electronic groove hits, Some how familiar to Madonna's Confessions on a Dance floor!

The Deluxe edition comes with a DVD pack, Including HQ glittering pictures and 2 CDS, The first CD contains the tracks of the album, And the second one containing the making of Out of Control, Amazing and truly worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring Girls Aloud to America! January 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As an American BritPop aficionado from the dawn of Duran Duran, I took pride in being plugged into the best music from the Mother Land, Scandinavia and Europe - everything ranging from Propaganda to Pulp, Abba and Alice Deejay to Transvision Vamp and The Zutons. How I was able to completely miss the phenomenon of Girls Aloud is beyond me. I likely lumped them into the lightweight rubbish bin alongside Atomic Kitten, Sugababes and Saturdays - not for the merits of those acts but due to my lingering disdain for The Spice Girls and Pussycat Dolls.

Needless to say, as Cheryl Cole sprung into international superstardom thanks to The X Factor on YouTube, I became curious. I started with her solo albums before buying the entire Girls Aloud catalog on Amazon. While her solo works are exactly what I expected - lightweight pop song guilty pleasures - the Girls Aloud work was something different altogether: lush, imaginative arena pop with an edgy, indie rock mentality.

Credit writers/producers Xenomania for the songs - and guitarist Johnny Marr of the Smiths for a dash of extra cool (he plays lightly on many of this album's tracks). Read Wikipedia's listings on Xenomania and Girls Aloud for a much better dissection of their innovative approach to song structure. All I can say is - wow, this is some of the best pop music to wash upon any shores in the past 25 years. If you like Swede hipster pop stars like Annie (also a Xenomania project) and Robyn, then you'll love this.

Some of the tracks are pure, euphoric, unforgettable pop: Untouchable is simply smashing - one of the best pop singles of all time. But then there's the weird tracks. "Live in the Country" would have fit nicely in on Blur's masterpiece "Parklife.

5.0 out of 5 stars GA's growing up and "Out of Control"!! February 8, 2010
By B. Wade
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Girls Aloud's 6th Studio album shows they aren't those baby faced girls who won that show back in 2002. They are growing and it's sounds great!
1.)The Promise-Very good song but frankly(IMO)not nearly as good as all the hype surounding it suggests. I can understand why it was the single though.
2.)The Loving Kind- Great electro-pop, midtempo track. Nicola's pleading "I'd do anything" sounds heartbreaking and sincere.
3.)Rolling Back The Rivers In Time- A nice song but sounds a little filler-ish to me.
4.)Love Is The Key- One of the best on OCC(IMO)very 60's sounding(slightly remisant of"Waiting" on Chemistry) great harmonica solo as well.
5.)Turn To Stone- I loved this when I first heard it but now I've kind of fallen out of love with it. Very good icy pop song though.
6.)Untouchable-GA's over 6 minute long opus is indeed great. A little boring in some spots(IMO) but great and very well done. Nadine's solo at the end is a gem.
7.)Fix Me Up- I love this song! many feel it was chessy or out of place but I strongly dissagree. I feel after the drama of Untouchable this very funky flirty song is much needed.
8.)Love Is Pain- A little like "Close to love" on Tangled up in a way but very very good song.
9.)Miss You(Bow Wow)-One of my least favorite songs on OCC very silly to me but still well done job by the girls.
10.)Revolution In The Head-#1 song on OCC(IMO)GA repeats the funky, reggae sound from Control Of the Knife on Tangled Up but even better! It has a message telling Gen.Y to get up and DO something instead of play more Rock Band"Revolution in the head don't count for nothing" plus Nadine's little rapping is GOLD!
11.)Live In The Country- Most people HATE this song and you will hear why. It is (IMO) the worst song on OCC.
