Some of their songs are ok (their latest 'Notorious' definitely not among them, brrrr!), but only some of them. They are nice (that's not a compliment), little lack of personality. On the record they sound quite decent, but at their live performances they reveal that some of them have poor vocal capabilities, their stage moves are a bit clunky too. I guess singing and dancing academies aren't exactly educational background of British girl group members.

And :bum: Why can't Brits make decent videoclips? They should take some lessons from Ukrainian clipmakers!

I went to see them perform back in November and they are really good performers live. Their 2nd album "Headlines" is way better than their first but for a UK girl band they are actually canny good.

Haha, I'm obviously totally spoilt by an armada of very talented groups from Russia and Ukraine... :D
