"This is the UK version of the album inspired by Sarah Ferguson, the former Duchess of York and first Fergie, but unfortunately in this case, art imitates life, and this album doesn't quite meet the expected refinement of the pedigree.
1. Fergalicious (Featuring Will.I.Am)
3. All That I Got (The Make Up Song) Featuring Will.I.Am
4. London Bridge
6. Voodoo Doll
7. Glamorous (Featuring Ludacris)
8. Here I Come
10. Big Girls Don't Cry
11. Mary Jane Shoes (Featuring Rita Marley & The I-Three'S)
12. Losing My Ground
14. "Get Your Hands Up" (Featuring the BEP)
15. "Wake Up"
There are a couple of good Hip Hop tracks in "London Bridge" the first (already well known) single, the clean version of which plays on the radio, and the second single "Fergalicious" featuring will.i.am. I also like "Clumsy", and the reggae tracks "Voodoo Doll" and "Mary Jane Shoes" (Featuring Rita Marley)
Mixed in with the dance tracks are some slower tracks such as "All That I Got (The Make Up Song)" featuring will.i.am; "Big Girls Don't Cry"; "Losing My Ground" and the most un-Fergie-like "Finally", which is pretty good.
Songs that should have gone to Weight Watchers for toning are "Pedestal"; "Glamorous" (featuring Ludacris); "Here I Come"; and "Velvet". Even with the support of the Black Eyed Peas, this album could benefit from the shedding of some extra poundage.
Britannia rules, as this album has two tracks that are not included on the US release. These tracks are "Get Your Hands Up" featuring the BEP, and "Wake Up", both good tracks that would have been a great asset to the US version.
We are amused, but wish we could have been overwhelmed.
