All Saints - The Videos (2001) DVD5

The All Saints had a lot to prove in their short-lived career. After the onslaught of the Spice Girls Britain really was not ready for a "serious" girl band. The Videos captures the best of the urban girl band who only ever managed to produce two albums. As hits go there's a great selection, from the theme from The Beach, "Pure Shores", to their most memorable of numbers, "Never Ever". Good as the songs are, however, most of their videos leave a lot to be desired. The best is the brave cover of "Under the Bridge"--which was not only a hit but musically a surprisingly intelligent cover--set against an urban landscape which was not only beautifully lit but also introduced Khaki combats as a fashion item. Many of the others, though, hold to the traditional pop video format of the girls parading around a strobe-lit studio singing to the camera--possibly the worst examples are "Pure Shores", with the Appleton sisters attempting to look "scary" in a bamboo cage, and their cover of "Lady Marmalade". The gems of the collection are the MTV tracks with a live band and great scratching.

This disc contains very little in the way of special features, which is a shame considering the success of the band and the wealth of interviews that must be available. There's a discography and track selection, along with the ability to "karaoke" the songs by turning the song lyrics on. The picture format also leaves a lot to be desired with its 4.3 ratio, however the sound is adequate.
