    I’m sure this must have been discussed over the 57 pages ( :side-eye: ) but is part of the reason the general public weren’t really here for Flatline because to them the Sugababes were Mutya, Keisha and Heidi?

    No shade at Siobhan, as this is clearly a more organic line up, but not everyone shops at Waitrose

    All good songs, but I think they’d sound better with Mutya.

    I can see where VoR is coming from. Because of their rabid fanbase, Girls Aloud seemed much more the "bigger" act than the Sugababes were. The Sugababes felt like every one of their big singles was a surprise.

    I agree Girls Aloud seemed fragile around "Chemistry", but "Something Kinda Ooh" changed all of that and for the rest, they were pretty much teflon-coated...

    Well yes, I said until 'The Sound Of'. As we've said before 'Oooh' was arguably their most important single.

    It never really felt to me as if Girls Aloud were the bigger band, other than in the tabloid sense. I was always aware that Sugababes were outselling them, and they always felt like they had more radio presence.

    If they have a hit comeback instead of MKS, there's really no chance for humanity

    Are you serious? :laugh:

    Girls Aloud were dominating the charts, seen everywhere and were the biggest British pop group for a decade. The Sugababes were this lightweight entity that were interesting for about half an hour every couple of years, released about 5 good songs, had albums noone gave a shit about 2/3 of them were mingers.

    It would be generous to call them the Tesco value Girls Aloud.

    OK but how do you REALLY feel about Sugababes, Nowoco?

    But for a few albums Sugababes outsold Girls Aloud, didn't they?

    I saw them at Wembley Arena on tour. I assume it wasn't the only arena on that tour.

    It’s funny how outside of the UK Sugababes were much, much bigger than Girls Aloud.
