Overloaded, The Singles Collection, Sugababes

Saccharin sweet album, stuffed full of high-tempo pop tracks punctuated by the occasional soaring ballad. Impressive vocals, catchy rhythms and moody melodies, but not enough variation aross the 15, sometimes repetitive, tracks. The lyrics range widely in quality from the seductively sexy 'Push the Button' to the overly sentimental 'Ugly'. Still, a good warm-up for a girls' night out or to accompany a summer's evening drive across the city. 6/10
