Talia Kraines 2003

Quirky, modern and dripping with attitude Chemistry is here, and holds no disappointments.

Produced solely by pop darlings Xenomania, the girls rip through a variety of styles, paces and Neneh Cherry-esque raps, sometimes, as in "Biology", all within the same song.

Able to finally perform equally well on ballads as up-tempo tracks, the infectious chorus to "Models" is a brilliant example of their trademark strutting attitude, while "Whole Lotta History" stands out as a lush ballad reminiscent of the Spice Girls.

Whoever said pop was dead? GA have resuscitated its corpse by wedding chart-friendly melodies to experimental avant-garde sounds, particularly on the sublime "Swinging London Town"

These girls are banging on your door and dying to start a party. I dare you to let them in.
