Lena Katina and Julia Volkova -- collectively known as t.A.T.u. -- certainly know how to get attention. The banning of their risqu?????????????????? videos only heightened interest in the Russian teen pop duo, and that was just the beginning of the controversy they generated. But publicity stunts aside, the girls' talent really does speak for itself.
Dangerous and Moving, the duo's second U.S. release, is much like its first; an energetic collection of pop nuggets that is easy on the ears and good for the soul. They've grown up in the past three years since their American debut, but they certainly don't let that get in the way of having a good time.
The disc's first single, "All About Us," speaks to the notion of forbidden love. It's an intriguing entr??????????????????e into the album, coming off as both idealistic and defiant. They'll do whatever they must to be together and will protect one another at all costs. Musically, it has a full sound, coming off like a beefed-up ABBA song -- and that's meant in a very good way.
Sting takes a guest turn on the bass guitar on the track "Friend or Foe," but even without his handiwork this track is worth noting. The song is set in the aftermath of love, and there's a definite sense of dismay and disbelief that it's really over. The song has an infectious groove and stands out as one that makes you reach for the "repeat" button.
Dangerous and Moving has a couple of ballads that let the listener take a break from the dance-ready tracks. "Gomenasai" and "Craving (I Only Want What I Can't Have)" both seem autobiographical. The former is a tender and pain-filled number set between two friends or lovers who have had a falling out; the latter is a continuation of that theme. "Craving" sees the hours growing longer as time passes and the realization of the relationship being gone sinks in. Now that it's gone, she wants it back, but if that love were to return, she knows she probably wouldn't be happy with it.
"Perfect Enemy" has a terrific electronic beat that provides the backdrop for a song that is tinged with anger and regret. In the aftermath of the relationship, she sees it more clearly and it changes the way she feels about everything they shared.
Dangerous and Moving would have been a great debut album. The fact that it's t.A.T.u.'s second effort is encouraging; if these girls keep getting better with time, it's worth the three-year wait between releases.
