Three years after t.A.T.u burst onto the pop scene amid a blaze of publicity, and scored a number one hit with their UK debut "All The Things She Said", the controversial Russian duo are back with a new album and single. The single, "All About Us", charted well while the album, "Dangerous And Moving", which came out on 10 October, seems to have found only a limited release. I have seen it in HMV but in none of the supermarkets which is a shame as I think it is power pop at its best!
On the left of the above picture is Julia Volkova and on the right redhead Lena Katina whose on stage antics together seemed to upset a lot of media folk prompting chatshow hosts Richard and Judy to suggest their viewers boycott the girls' original release. The former "This Morning" presenters might do better to target the misogynistic lyrics of certain rappers than attack something as mild as this and which is no more than a marketing gimmick. In any case, it made no difference to the success of what I think is a perfectly crafted pop song though that probably had as much to do with the skill of Trevor Horn's production as it did the ability of the two singers!
