Sugababes Three CD Review

Sugababes have made it big in the UK, but can they do the same thing in North America?

The average North American kid may not have heard of the Sugababes, but these girls have been rockin' the UK for years. Read on to see if the Sugababes have the right stuff to make it big stateside.

The Sweet Sounds of Three

Don't be confused by the similarity of this groups name to another spicy pop group; these girls have edge. If you don't believe that girl groups can have edge, check out Hole in the Head. This track is soulful, feisty and totally catchy all at the same time. Also, Caught in a Moment is THE theme song for your summer romance (real or imaginary) this year. It's not a small thing that these girls actually write their own songs (although, after a little digging around, it turns out that they've had a little help - it took 11 people to create In the Middle).

Three Hits a Sour Note

Three is a good album but it isn't a masterpiece that you'll still be listening to in a couple of years. A lot of the tracks sound too much the same, which is by far the most annoying element of the album. The girls themselves aren't overly charismatic either. The only time they seem vaguely interesting is when they're rumored to be breaking up (which, to be fair, does happen every few weeks). Love or hate Britney or Christina, at least those girls never fail to be interesting.

Three - Final Verdict

If your pop collection needs a bit more edge, Three is for you. These girls have solid, funky songs that probably have what it takes to make it on to US radio waves. If, however, you're looking for new celebs to idolize for the next few years then you're out of luck. These girls will go the way of the Spice Girls before you can say "four."

    Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.
