Mis-Teeq

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Wish the late comedian Phil Hartman was still around for a lot of reasons, but especially so he could deliver his patented "Sassy!" after every track on Mis-Teeq's American debut. On one hand it's a shame Yanks had to wait three years to get their groove on with these three fabulous women. On the other hand, the album does away with some limp filler by picking the best tracks from the group's two U.K. releases, Lickin' on Both Sides and Eye Candy. Better yet, slick remixes are chosen over lesser album versions, making this a Mis-Teeq mixtape that album owners might want to check. Lyrics are light but lively, swaggering but not standoffish, and maybe a little more risqué ...

Wish the late comedian Phil Hartman was still around for a lot of reasons, but especially so he could deliver his patented "Sassy!" after every track on Mis-Teeq's American debut. On one hand it's a shame Yanks had to wait three years to get their groove on with these three fabulous women. On the other hand, the album does away with some limp filler by picking the best tracks from the group's two U.K. releases, Lickin' on Both Sides and Eye Candy. Better yet, slick remixes are chosen over lesser album versions, making this a Mis-Teeq mixtape that album owners might want to check. Lyrics are light but lively, swaggering but not standoffish, and maybe a little more risqué and hedonistic than parents would like. Production is where the album really shines. Whenever producers StarGate or Mushtaq are at the controls it's stunning, and when Starship gives "All I Want" the garage treatment you can't help but dance. The bits of garage -- the totally British blending of drum & bass beats with an urban-pop sheen -- are overblown in the band's press releases, but the genre's nocturnal-cool bravado is obvious throughout the album and a welcome alternative to the stale thuggish stomps and crunk shouts dominating America. Joe's minor contribution is barely worth mentioning, but Baby Cham's appearance is a winner as he tries to seduce these neva-gonna-get-it gals. Check the original albums and you'll find Mis-Teeq aren't as versatile and cunning as sweet-harmony sistas En Vogue. Think about how the Spice Girls would have benefited from this doing-away-with-dreck format and drop the laser anywhere for top-notch, boisterous fun.

    It's A UK Thing!

    This album is a cobination of the UK album Lickin' On Both Sides and Eye Candy. The Mis-Teeq ladies took America by storm and this cd proves their unique talent of vocals and uk garage. This cd is a credit to Alesha, Sabrina and Su-Elise who's talent is by far unforgetable!

    THIS CD IS HOT!

    Each song on this CD, from 'Scandalous' to 'Can't Get It Back', is so good! The CD blends with R&B/Hip-Hop and has tracks like 'Roll On' and 'All I Want', which might belong to a Pop flavor. This CD is so hot, everyone must listen to it! I have no idea why it did not sell as much as it should have. And 'Scandalous' and 'One Night Stand' is hot, and wait till you hear and see the music video for 'Can't Get It Back' (supposedly coming soon. They deliver such a powerful performance, from the sassy voice of Sabrina to the sexy vocals of Su-Elise to the rhyming hardcore rapping of Alesha, this CD is a must have! You will fall in love with it, I got it last September and I am hooked on it even now! It is so addicting! They are like the Spice Girls meets Destiny's Child, except better than the both of them combined!
