Sugababes : Stronger/Angels With Dirty Faces

What price now being photographed crawling out the Met Bar?...

Following on from a couple of such brilliant supergyrating singles as ‘Freak Like Me’ and ‘Round Round’, there was always the suspicion that ver ‘Babes might just slip up this time. Suspicions are sadly confirmed on ‘Stronger’ - the dancefloor monster of ‘Freak like Me’ being dumped in favour of an against-all-odds ballad, which leers at you for a bit, then staggers off to puke up that last Bacardi Breezer. ‘Angels With Dirty Faces’, however, saves the day through its sleek garage sexiness. Smooth as Kylie’s arse and every bit as tantalising, it’s [a][/a] finally gaining admission into the Fellowship of the Bling and quaffing all the Cristal in sight. What price now being photographed crawling out the Met Bar?
