EDITORS’ NOTES

The London four-piece’s second outing welcomed in the new millennium with a mature, crisp sound courtesy of electronic production from William Orbit. The washed-out prettiness of "Pure Shores" and “Black Coffee”’s poetic longing perfectly reflects the album’s whirlpool of bleeps, giddy melodies and intimate harmonies, but their sexy R&B isn’t totally abandoned. “All Hooked Up”—full of turntable scratches, sirens and samples—is a strutting, slithery pop beast and “Ha Ha” perfectly showcases one of the UK’s best ever girl band’s mischief and grown-up appeal.
