    I like the title. I hope it's more Pop- than 60s-tastic tho.

    They've never really done an album with one major theme, 'Tangled Up' was meant to be a full on 'POP' album and we still got 'Black Jacks' and 'Control Of The Knife' which were quite heavily influenced on different styles! So I highly doubt they'd go all 60's on us now, not for a full album anyway.

    I am sorry, but this is far too "I'm mad, me" or "I'm called H because I'm so hyperactive" for my liking.

    This is the most excited I've been for a Girls Aloud album, which doesn't say much.

    I want 60S INSPIRED POP

    To be fair, if the lead single is anything to go by, it's hardly WINEHOUSE-esque

    I like the single very much, but I hope this 60s-inspired business doesn't mean they will be neglecting the 100mph uptempo stuff completely. I'm sure it will be fine though, we haven't been let down before.

    Oh CALM DOWN, you know what I mean.

    There's a fair bit of 60s BANDWAGONEERING going on in the music industry in general and this is just another example of that trend.

    Me neither.

    TOO MUCH SARAH + NOT ENOUGH ELECTROFABULOUSNESS = not very good

    Apparently ELECTROFABULOUSNESS would be them re-treading old ground and Girls Aloud just don't DO THAT!

    They're all a bit up their own arses. Thank god Nadine has shingles. It's like slight karma.

    Good decision to move The Promise a week forward. The advantage of downloads was that we didn't have to wait a month before we could buy a single. With The Promise it looked like it used to: being tired of a track because they left it too long to release! Radio picked it up quicker than expected.

    That said wikipedia has it from the ever-reliable sun.

    Still, not very Out Of CONTROL.

    Kim in particular looks properly common in that pic. It just WON'T DO. :evil:

    That blurb sounds promising though. It seems we don't have to worry about them doing an album's worth of Amy/Duffy impressions, not that I ever thought they would.

    This is the cover - nice photo, shame about the nasty cheap stretched font.

    Eurgh, It looks like it's been designed by a 12 year old girl off the official message board.

    I remember when The Aloud had properly amazing artwork.

    I disagree. Bar the first album and the christmas half of "Chemistry", it's been FUCKING AWFUL the entire way for me...

    There are several bad things about the cover

    1. The god-awful font in front of that white block that could've easily been created in Microsoft Word. And something tells me it was :D
    2. It's PAINFULLY bland, and looks like it's not even worthy of being a promo cover.
    3. Sarah shouldn't be in the CENTER of ANYTHING

    While the font is AWFUL, the picture isn't THAT BAD.

    I'll give you that. :D
