Time Out Magazine (UK) Raves about "Dangerous and Moving" in Their Highly Respected Style Section

From the "Style" section of TIME OUT MAGAZINE (UK):

t.A.T.u. "Dangerous and Moving"

4 out of 6 stars


Faux-lesbian Russian duo return with a dozen great retreads of THAT single

It's been more than two years since the thinking person's Cheeky Girls imploded in a cloud of management bust-ups, on-air lesbian snogs, cancelled arena dates, a failed Eurovision entry and a pregnancy. This comeback album is a marked improvement on 2003's "200 kph in the Fast Lane' in that it ditches the dreary fillers and instead spends most of its 14 tracks trying to replicate the gothic majesty of Trevor Horn's 'All the Things She Said.' That means lovelorn, minor-key power pop, juddering techno drums, bleepy analogue synth effects, symphonic string arrangements (courtesy, bizzarely, of Richard Carpenter), surreal Cossak-dancing breakdowns and some wonderfully sulky adolescent lyrics. 'Cosmos' recalls Depeche Mode at their kinkiest; 'Loves Me Not' sounds like Slayer playing New Order; 'All About Us' suggests classic Abba as rendered by Laibach. Oddly, Trevor Horn's sole contribution - the mid-paced power ballad 'Craving' - is the one track that doesn't sound like Trevor Horn. There is no Smiths cover this time, more's the pity, but one could imagine Morissey singing the rather fine 'Friend Or Foe' (written by - outch! - Dave Stewart and featuring - eek! - Sting on bass). A minor masterpiece. - John Lewis, Time Out (UK)

I don't think it was a great review, they kind of just shoved it aside as mediocre.
And I am tired of people crediting All The Things She Said to Trevor Horn.
The real credit should go to Sergei Galoyan....the only contribution I think Trevor Horn had with the Americanized version "All the Things She Said" was decrease the vlume of the synth riffs and introduce a greater sound of the guitar riffs to give it a rockier edge. The melody and sense of the song are Sergei's work, and I think, especially with his song Vsya Moya Lyubov', he achieved great work again on this album.
I personally think Trevor's song on this album sucks. It's not horrible by any means, but my least favorite on the album.

Well it wasn't an awesome review but it was better then Rolling Stone's at least and it wasn't actually negative, yeah they sucked up to Trevor Horne big time but over all it was a decent review I think.

I think the words 'A minor masterpiece' says it all. Wink

Who the **** uses a six star system? That's just downright odd....

The Tajik in space was the best one. Apparently he's been in the Soyuz since 1990 but when the USSR broke up responsibility for getting him back passed to Tajikistan, which could not afford it. However he's been paid ever since and now has USD 100,000,000 in his space account. He can't spend it until he hires a ship to get him down, which he will do if you activate his bank account...

I was thinking the same thing, probably just their way of being rebels or something lol.

Haha! I love it when writers visually illustrate songs Grin And add references in them.

My friend's dad knows how to get in touch w/ Richard Carpenter , who apparently lives near my hometown. My ex met him, infact -__- If I ever get to, I'm SO asking him how it was to work on D&M Grin
