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.

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.

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.

I loved listening to their previous album, "Tangled Up", and felt that this album would meet the same standards. Their newer sound is much like 80's band Depeche Mode and especially since they teamed up with the Pet Shop Boys to produce the tracks. Tracks I highly recommend are: "The Loving Kind", "Rolling Back The Rivers In Time", "Love Is Pain", "Turn To Stone", and "Untouchable".

Fifth album from top-selling British pop act, once again fully written and produced by Brian Higgins and Xenomania. Their previous album, Tangled Up, showcased a more electronic side of the group's sound, and despite the `60s style evoked by lead single "The Promise" (already a number-one hit prior to the album's release), Out of Control employs a similar sonic theme. Tracks such as "The Loving Kind" (co-written by the Pet Shop Boys), "Turn to Stone" and "Love Is Pain" explore stories of heartache over electro-dance sounds, and Xenomania's trademark flair for quirky curveballs is evident once again in "Miss You Bow Wow" and "Revolution In the Head". A major highlight is mid-album showstopper "Untouchable", an Ibiza-inspired trance epic that clocks in at over six minutes and is easily one of Xenomania's finest songs yet. Although Girls Aloud's music continues to trump most of the drivel released by current pop acts, Out of Control lacks the spunk and devil-may-care attitude of their previous, brilliant LPs, and one can't help but wonder if Xenomania's relentless creative output might be in need of recharging.

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.
