On the day of the US release of Little Mix’s debut LP, our take on the 12 tracks on the album’s regular edition.
Not quite Rihanna-level madness, but quality lunacy anyway.
Get a job, deadbeat boyfriend.
A Katy Perry-indebted extraterrestrial excursion for the girl group and T-Boz.
A lift from an old De La Soul jam elevates “How Ya Doin” to one of the most fun tracks on “DNA.”
Not a Ke$ha cover, unfortunately.
An impressively stark ballad that marks the album’s most emotional moment.
Another mid-tempo ballad, though at least this one has a little drama to it.
The military thing works pretty damn well for Little Mix.
We hoped the group would be above ballads this trite.
A more vulnerable spin on the “Wings” lyrical theme of self-preservation.
The title ballad of Little Mix’s debut LP is solidly produced, but a little odd lyrically.
Our track-by-track review of the girl group’s debut album begins with the set’s breakout lead single.
We give the Robots’ latest opus a song-by-song breakdown, separating the filler from the future dancefloor classics.
