Found this article on tatugirls.com and looked it up on the Pitchfork website.

t.A.T.u.: "All About Us"
genre: pop

The party line on t.A.T.u. is that laissez-faire capitalism begets sinister svengalis, who beget crypto-lesbian bobbysoxer chipmunks, at which point morality promptly ends. Lost in this neat construct is the part where the chipmunks sing perfect pop songs. t.A.T.u. have a particularly ruthless trick up their sleeve-- they follow a great chorus with a crushing post-chorus stretch-- and "All About Us" has an even better one than the unhinged "this is not enough" section from "All the Things She Said". This time, after a typically martial declaration of their whatever, the girls blow right past the chorus and redo the money line over a plaintive break of bells and timpani: a brilliant switcheroo. It's also, interestingly, t.A.T.u.'s most Slavic musical moment to date, which may mean their camp has relaxed a bit about taking over the West. Good thing, as a bit of obscurity becomes these two.

Some (and by some I mean you) will be saddened to know that the attendant video forgoes tonsil hockey for an ode to friendship. And gun ownership. And brain splatter. Look it up-- it ain't getting on MTV. [Michael Idov]

*laughs* The guy's got an odd writing style... or maybe I'm just tired. Bobbysoxer? Have I missed something? Is that American terminology or... what? Olde English?! Surprised/Shocked

It's good though, right? Good review... kinda Grin

Thanks for posting it Xena225.

"bobbysoxer" is a term that appeared in the 1950s. referring to the legions of teenage girls who'd follow Frank Sinatra (i think) around. Die hards, groupies you could say.

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...
