Album: 'Sugababes', Sweet 7 (Island)

Heidi, Amelle and Jade were recently asked whether, if you buy a broom then replace the head and the handle, it's still the same brush.

Bless their dimwitted hearts, they all answered "No!". Because whatever this is, it isn't the seventh album by the Sugababes. From the wretched "Get Sexy" onwards, they play it depressingly safe with substandard electro pop. They can call themselves what they like, but they'll never fill the heels of Keisha, Mutya and Siobhan. It's over.
