Tangled Up – Girls Aloud – 2007
The only album by a group to make it into my top 10, Tangled Up is the highlight of Girls Aloud‘s 8 year career. Though they will be remembered for their near perfect run of brilliant singles, every song here is single material. Producer’s Xenomania’s best work comes in the form of 12 outstanding pop records, never afraid to force unusual structure on the listener; the instrumentals in Girl Overboard and I’m Falling. With insanely catchy pop hooks appearing seconds into each song, tracks like Fling push the group to their limits.Tangled Up marks the pinnacle of UK pop music.
Standout Single: Sexy! No No No…
