All Saints - General Discussion

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by Jonny Prez, Oct 13, 2006.

  1. Baffled as I think Red Flag was a let down whereas I love all but one song on Testament. The quality just drops for me after ”Summer Rain” (which is a damn shining highlight in their entire discography) on the former and only picks back up with the title track and “Pieces”.
     
  2. I still really bop to One Woman Man and Make U love Me. Some absolute choons on Testament too. Fumes is vocally stunning. All their voices are used to their best ability.
    I kinda see the two albums working together as mature and sophisticated pop. So ready for more.

  3. Red Flag is a stronger album overall than the other 4, but I don't know if any of my personal favourite top 5 All Saints songs are on it.

    I only really go back to the first two albums for the singles and the odd album track.

    Testament might be my favorite. It's the only one that doesn't really verge into a cringy mess but I can see how some of the more experimental tracks don't click and how some of the album is a bit too Adult Contemporary for their audience.

    Also, Mel Blatt promoting a song called Bootie Call with her bump popping out was a cultural reset.

  13. Red Flag is perfection. I'm still shook it exists.

  14. People are rating the self titled far too low.

  15. I love Red Flag and believe that most of its songs are really catchy.

    However, it always felt like a slog to get to the end of Testament.

    Don't Look Over Your Shoulder and Fumes are different but they work. I Would is a really underrated track. Footprints of one of their best tracks.
