The soulful, spiky and swaggering debut album from Shaznay Lewis, Melanie Blatt and sisters Natalie and Nicole Appleton instantly pitched them as credible Spice Girls rivals. An iconic, quotable opening monologue and gospel-tinged harmonies ensured Never Ever became a generation-defining hit, the funky, chopped-up R&B of I Know Where It’s At put the band in a far cooler lane than their contemporaries, while Bootie Call ’s sexually assured bounce remains thrilling
As the first group of consequence to be saddled with the "new Spice Girls" tag, it would be reasonable to expect that All Saints would be cut-rate dance-pop without the weirdly magical charisma that made the Spices international phenomenons. It is true that All Saints lack the personality of the Spices, but they make up for that with musical skills.
All Saints is the debut studio album by British girl band All Saints. Many critics praised the choice of singles and the group's musical direction, while some did not enjoy the music direction and felt they lacked personality.
Saints & Sinners is the second studio album by British-Canadian girl group All Saints. It was released three years after their debut album, All Saints. The album reached number one in the UK, their only album to do so. Three tracks on the album were produced by William Orbit, best known for his work with Madonna on her Ray of Light album. Commercially, Saints & Sinners was not as successful as the group's self-titled debut album. While debuting at number eight on the New Zealand Albums Chart, it stayed in the chart for just five weeks. The album debuted at twenty-six on the Australian Albums Chart, and rose to peak at twenty.
