    I didn't realise the Sarah discography was SO LIMITED and therefore appears a little ripe for the MOCKING, however I'm not taking it back. It took a whole FIVE MINUTES!

    Were there no remixes for Threads? I'll still rate it higher than Kimberly, but it's not exactly easy on the ears.

    I'm not sure I even know it. Apparently it was removed from streaming services this year.

    Can we skip the solo guff? I am *not* putting myself through those Nadine singles again in the name of research...

    Imagine having a career high piece of ART like Untouchable being your biggest chart disappointment though...

    (And I don’t include that final SHITE)

    They were never my favourite girl band. They were somehow very white and non-London. I didn't really relate. I stan Spice Girls, Eternal and All Saints. But their final two albums were wonderful, and Something New is one of the best pop songs of the last decade. Cheryl was either brilliant or utterly abysmal. I don't know the other girls as soloists.

    It's amazing what Xenomania were able to do with Cheryl's vocals. She sounded so much like Nadine that sometimes you couldn't tell them apart. I wasn't super into Girls Aloud for the longest time but at some point I couldn't deny them anymore. The Tangled Up and Out of Control eras (tragic artwork aside) were their peak for sure.

    the Ten sessions produced a couple of great songs but you could tell the songwriting magic was waning and they didn't want to be there. Strange also to go with art direction that had them styled like identical dolls when they had developed reasonably distinct styles up until that point. not really the ending they deserved in all honesty.

    I'm having a GA revival evening. I'd forgotten HOW FUCKING GOOD The Loving Kind was. :disco::disco::disco: x1000

    At their electropop best they were TOP FUCKING NOTCH.

    Have any artists PEAKED SO HEAVILY at the end? Obviously they started off FAMOUSLY, but they took a few years to FIND THEIR SOUND after that.

    09 Sound of the Underground
    - the Pulp Fiction extension is on the 10
    10 No Good Advice
    - their first killer chorus. Graffiti my soul indeed, and wrap it in tinfoil
    07 Life Got Cold
    - if only it had prompted a war of words with Oasis and resulted in Nicola shouting something embarrassing
    10 Jump
    - early club defining experience
    11 The Show
    - I don't think I've ever flipped out as much for a pop song ever since. Perhaps Ooooh or Hung Up matched the hysteria
    05 Love Machine
    - great bridges, great River Island gowns, but this has always gave way for me
    05 I'll Stand by You
    - it's weird that as fans many had conditioned ourselves into accepting these as necessary evils, like sticking with some maniac you should have blocked after cancelling on
    10 Wake Me Up
    - fist fun for days
    06 Long Hot Summer
    - a stop-gap misfire
    10 Biology
    - not so much "don't bore us, get to the chorus" as it was the best parts of about 3 or 4 songs stitched together. If only they had taken the same approach and ditched Kimba
    04 See the Day
    - a really odd choice that just never worked
    09 Whole Lotta History
    - almost a 10, I don't need to feel Kimba's warm noodle breath in my ear such is the way she sings it
    10 Something Kinda Ooooh
    - bulletproof
    08 I Think We're Alone Now"
    - the original sinks deeper than Harding's new cleavage in the video. I love that in the casino, the implication is that if you play your cards right she'll go home with someone else
    00 Walk This Way
    - an explicit promotional parade rather than war ranting discussion as a single
    10 Sexy! No No No...
    - The intro to end all intros
    10 Call the Shots
    - the middle 8 a galaxy of stars
    09 Can't Speak French
    - Xeonomania's production flair was at its best on this album. The single edit is elevated subtly but immeasurably
    06 The Promise
    - Loose Women audience friendly, saved by a certain dog walking call
    10 The Loving Kind
    - Sarah's finest moment, which became her worst on GMTV, which then became her best. The Xmas BHS ad video might just be their best
    10 Untouchable
    - The original album edit is utter perfection, and the Kelly Llorenna single edit would dislocate the jaws of many a front row agog gays
    10 On the Metro
    - on the 10. A moment on tour, it should have been a single (the distinction between Nicola's input and Cheryl's couldn't be more drastic). It shouldn't really be here though
    10 Something New
    - Girls Aloud: fully loaded, a Girls Aloud pop creampie, shooting and shouting from all cylinders
    00 Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me
    -

    CHERYL

    00 Heartbreaker (with will.i.am)
    06 Fight for This Love
    07 3 Words
    05 Parachute
    08 Promise This
    00 The Flood
    10 Call My Name
    - her inexplicable and undeniable pop presence is all here, and all the while in a pair of culottes
    00 Under the Sun
    00 Crazy Stupid Love (featuring Tinie Tempah)
    08 I Don't Care
    00 Only Human
    00 Love Made Me Do It
    00 Let You

    NICOLA

    05 Beat of My Drum
    10 Lucky Day
    - her best moments were utterly demolishing
    06 Yo-Yo

    NADINE

    05 Insatiable
    07 Sweetest High
    HIGH
    - I definitely enjoy the experience of it as a 12/10, but this was fabulous nonsense at best
    00 I Could Be
    06 Go to Work
    - for the TV performances
    05 Fool for Love
    - the chorus hurts my ears, but it threatens to be much better were it not for her yelling
    00 All That I Know

    KIMBERLEY

    -1 Everybody Dance

    there can't be many artists (especially in pop) who essentially became the muses of one experimental producer/songwriting team for an entire career spanning five albums and 20+ singles - they really were at the mercy of Xenomania from start to finish, but thankfully during those years (especially 05-08, the clear Xenomania peak) they seriously delivered.

    the near-universal apathy to Long Hot Summer is honestly baffling to me - THAT is how you do a POP SONG! what a load of mad TITS :disco:

    Why have I never heard “On the Metro” before? I have had a longing for something missing in my life and BY GOD this is it. This hits HARD. :disco:

    Girl Overboard IS SENSATIONAL. Black Jacks and Control of the Knife also up there in terms of standout non singles.

    It is amazing, and I may be solo in thinking it, but Every Now And Then - the other unrealised Ten track, to me hits even harder

    Obviously the reason is appalling and I can't even contemplate the grimest outcome. However having not played them in an age, its good to remember why we LOVED THEM.
