It's been a long time since the Sugababes actually released an album (5 bloody years!!!) and the stuff they're best known for is now a decade or more old. Which makes me feel like I should be purchasing a funeral plot in the near future.

So we've decided to do a series of threads to help newer and casual fans discover some of the hidden gems from the girls back catalogue! Over the next few months we'll delve into all 7 albums, the solo material for each girl (even the unreleased stuff) and look at the B-Sides, Live Covers and general rarities. Beginning with 2.0 because it's the highest selling and what they're most famous for we'll go through this line up in chronological order which means Angels With Dirty Faces is up first!


Aside from being a 1938 gangsta movie, Angels (aka AWDF) was the Sugababes first commercially successful album while still keeping the critical acclaim of the bands debut.



Angels charted at #2 on release in the UK and stayed in the top 3 a further week on it's way to selling over 900,000 copies.

Tracklisting:

01 - Freak Like Me
02 - Blue
03 - Round Round
04 - Stronger
05 - Supernatural
06 - Angels With Dirty Faces
07 - Virgin Sexy
08 - Shape
09 - Just Don't Need This
10 - No Man No Cry
11 - Switch
12 - More Than A Million Miles
13 - Breathe Easy (Acoustic Mix)
14 - Round Round (Alternate Version)

Hopefully most of you would have heard the singles (Freak, Round Round, Stronger/AWDF & Shape) so the aim here is to get y'all into the rest of the album. To that effect please find for your listening pleasure the rest of Angels With Dirty Faces below:


Track #2 - BLUE




Track #5 - SUPERNATURAL




Track #7 - VIRGIN SEXY




Track #9 - JUST DON'T NEED THIS




Track #10 - NO MAN NO CRY




Track #11 - SWITCH




Track #12 - MORE THAN A MILLION MILES




Track #13 - BREATHE EASY (ACOUSTIC)




Thankfully track 14 isn't on Youtube that I can find. (Not that I'm trying hard, it's abysmal)

A good plan for a Sunday much?! I'm jealous I didn't get to spend my day doing the same.

As for AWDF the final verse thing by Mutya in 'Just Don't Need This' I LOVE wub.gif the 'I go, wherever I know that you won't go' etc

I'm such a traitor 'cause I'm listening to GA at the mo. Might put this on in a minute.

This album is so good and it's my second favorite Sugababes album now.

(I also really like the Tricky album of the same name.)

lol it's not THAT awful.

+ it's interesting to hear an extended version of Heidi's middle 8.

If I had to rank the songs on the album from worst to best:

SWITCH
BREATHE EASY
NO MAN, NO CRY
FREAK LIKE ME (really gone off of this lately, not that it's bad by any means but I've heard it way too much)
STRONGER
SUPERNATURAL
MORE THAN A MILLION MILES
BLUE
VIRGIN SEXY
SHAPE
ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES
ROUND ROUND
JUST DON'T NEED THIS

I know right! I'm making the most of my free weekends before I start back at my courses by doing absolutely f*** all.


YES! It's just marvellous and so well done.

The best one for me is More Than A Million Miles and the Keisha 'rap' wub.gif "tell me what happened to our quality time"

Well this is awkward laugh.gif
I did my rank from worst to best so 'Switch' is my least favorite on the album. But it's still enjoyable tongue.gif

The one thing we will probably never agree on!

For me there are some wonderful vocals on it, the verses are completely free from flaw and the way they are delivered is superb. Mutya's bridge 'You can easily gamble your life away, second after second...' wub.gif it's truly so far beyond spectacular its unreal.


However.

The chorus is just so far beyond dull it kills the song for me. Then there's the male backing vocals puke.gif no tyvm. They are too loud and don't blend that well with the girls I don't think.
