The best pop group in the UK? Well the Sugababes must be in with a shout. I can only think of Girls Aloud who come close to reaching their dizzy heights. In a playground rumble between them and the limp wristed feeble host of boy bands, my money would be on the girls.
Push the Button zips, bleeps, crashes and whirls like a PC in lust with a Mac. The three voices melt into each like drinking chocolate. The cyber groove is sassy and swings just right side of rigid. Dallas Austin's production adds a little of that TLC thing. This is pop with a capital P.
Thankfully it's not trying on Pete Doherty's hat or attempting to borrow guitars from the Kaiser Chiefs's transit van. It plays to its strengths: melody, rhythm and mischief. Someone should buy Charlotte Church a copy. Then she might grasp the concept of how to make a real pop record.
