** CONTRIBUTE A REVIEW **

Britain's favourite girls of 1999 unwrap their Christmas gift to a waiting nation. Their sassy, sexy assurance has left the hip-hop/soul crossover hordes glancing anxiously over their shoulders this year, as the streamlined TLC model accelerates past on yet another chart assault. You'd definitely cross over the road to avoid the clapped-out exhaust of so many of their competitors in this increasingly choked market. In comparison, the vocal emissions of Chili, T-Boz and Left-Eye shift through the gears with a smooth style that is distinctly top of the range.

It's no more than we have come to expect from the winning combination of exquisitely fashioned songs and feisty attitude. As they kiss and caress your ears with the syrupy touch of their tonsils there is always a sense of impending unease - as if the girls are just as likely to shove their tongues down the back of your throat and make mincemeat out of yours.

Dear Lie is a smoochy assault on the senses that is as sumptuous and filling as the richest seasonal fruitcake. A vivid production delivers slice after slice of slick harmonies that give a lie to the rumoured dissent within the band. Lisa Left-Eye may now consider herself the main attraction but here the girls answer the high expectations they have built up with some beautifully executed teamwork. These three-point sound manoeuvres gently hypnotise then accelerate you in to the anthemic cul-de-sac of an addictive chorus. The previously unreleased 'Sleigh Ride' sees the girls take a bumpy visit to a winter wonderland singalong that is up from the street. As in Street. As in - you'll (Yule) rap. Whereas, the only rap these girls are going to take is driving us to intense distraction when we're under their influence.
