Album Review

Three years after they were an international media sensation — hey, who doesn't like talking about and looking at Russian lesbian schoolgirls? — t.A.t.U. returned in 2005 with their second album, Dangerous and Moving. As Tommy Duncan sang, time does indeed change everything, and t.A.t.U. had a turbulent three years, separating from the Svengali manager and, most shocking of all, revealing that they weren't lesbians at all! In fact, Julia Volkova actually had a child, which kind of punctured the whole schoolgirl lesbian fantasy that had been pushed by the dearly departed manager in the first place. So, free to be themselves, t.A.t.U. decided to grow up for their second album — and nothing says maturity like ditching the short plaid skirts and bringing in Sting to play bass for a track, while hiring Richard Carpenter for a string arrangement for another. The presence of these two middlebrow titans may suggest that Dangerous and Moving sounds different than their debut, 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane, and while that's true to a certain extent, it's also misleading. Yes, there are a couple more ballads here, the Eurotrash quotient isn't quite so trashy (yet it's every bit as Euro), and, best of all, the girls' voices aren't run through the computer compressor that makes them sound as high and shrill as a drill. But all these little changes don't really alter the duo's music much at all.

SPEECHLESS & DROOLING

This album is THE PERFECT follow-up to the first platform that t.A.T.u. had the first time around. So they broke free of Ivan Shapovalov, the manager who constructed their lesbian image they were contractually bound to. They COULDN'T EVEN TALK...that's why there were so few interviews & gossip. Now Lena & Yulia finally got the courage to change managers & stick up for their own artistry. (We've all seen this with N'Sync & Mandy Moore who, if they wanted to make it big at first, had to have creative constraints). They've broken free now (& the song Obezyanka Nol shouts how they were "monkeys", or puppets, to Shapovalov). This album is all about truth... and FREAKIN AWESOME SONGS. "All About Us" is just that...they're singing about what's real now... NOT an image. They don't need it anymore. It's tired. The video to this song would either make or break their comeback as a pop duo that can stand on their own two feet... and it SURPASSES anything they did before. It's an amazing song. The video shows a more polished t.A.T.u., definitely growing into gorgeous 20-somethings. "Loves Me Not" is rip-roaring and catchy. Here, the truth comes out again, this time about a bi-sexual love triangle, and how their relationship was alienated when a guy came into the picture. "Friend or Foe" is one of the best songs on the album. It was written very well & Sting plays bass in it. It's the second single & very rightly so. "Gomenasai" talks about the fragility of their relationship in real life. Behind all the false images of the past & about the real relationship they've made since they auditioned for the soloist positions in t.A.T.u. as girls. Not many know this, but when Yulia found out she was pregnant, the first person she called was Lena: not her parents, not anyone - Lena. In "Gomenasai" Yulia says she "wanted to call" Lena & ask her "for help/ I stopped myself". These songs on this album are like JOURNALS...it's SO gutsy & REAL. "Craving (I Only Want What I Can't Have) grew on me more & more. It's very catchy & chorus driven. "Perfect Enemy" is, in my opinion, about many things. 1) Their love/hate relationship. They're Russian. Come on. They have spats. Yulia's a firecracker & is a hot-tempered girl. Lena's more subdued & demure, but whatever tiffs they have, they're back together 5 minutes later. We all do that. This song is about how the person you love gets undoubtedly on your nerves. 2) It's pointed at Shapovalov & how they're no longer under his "domination". 3)Pointed at the audience. A sort of "I'm not a girl, not yet a woman" statement. They've grown up & let them sink into their own right. They need to breathe & just be themselves. They're OUR perfect enemy. The song has a wicked pin-prickly chorus of sounds that dig deep. It grew on me like moss. "Dangerous & Moving" is entirely catchy. Not as catchy as "All the Things She Said" or "Not Gonna Get Us", & is a little slower paced, but still has that Industrial/pop fusion that makes their sound hot. It's an awesome way to close the album. BUY THIS CD. IT'S NOT ABOUT RUSSIAN PSYCHOLOGIST MASTERMINDS anymore, IT'S ABOUT LENA & YULIA & t.A.T.u. NOW!

Back In Syle

Tatu is back and this time without their perverted manager, Ivan Shapovalov. This is a great second album; many popular bands are not able to top their first album, but Tatu does by far. Each song has it’s on individuality and will have it’s own meaning to anyone who listens. The album also features artist like Richard Carpenter (yes that carpenter) that helped to arrange and conduct “Gomenasai.” Other songs like “Dangerous and Moving” and “All About Us” will undeniably be their two main hits from this album. Don’t let Tatu’s previous image of lesbian schoolgirls singing in the rain fool you. This time they are themselves, singing about what they want, and making it all about themselves.
