High praise for t.A.T.u.'s album from the U.K.'s most respected music critics

Time of publication: 13.02.2003
"[t.A.T.u.'s album] doesn't sound like anything else and I couldn't stop listening."

- Lisa Verrico, The Times (UK)

"When I first heard this duo described as 'a pair of teenage Russian lesbians' I thought: 'Oh God, here we go, another of those annoying novelty pop packages. then I played the record and I thought: 'Blimey. If this is cynical, processed pop, give me some more!' because I'm ahamed to say, I think it's totally and utterly fantastic. Here is yet another teenybop act you'd love to loathe but can't because they're so damn talented. I know it's sacrilege to say so, but I think their cover The Smiths' 'How Soon is Now?' might even be better than the original."
