Spiceworld is a lot more fun and a lot more varied, and I prefer it. Both great. Both much better than Forever.

OMG. I mean, SPICE is essential and SPICEWORLD somehow felt bigger and cemented their status worldwide and the fact I was there since the beginning of the campaign felt differently.
I think that's the thing with SPICE, by the time it was released you guys already moved on so as an "era" it felt rushed and passed by so fast :( I dunno what to choose.

Spiceworld has no speed bumps: it's very good filler for me includes Denying (a behind closed doors Say You'll Be There), Do It (I think the lyrics are great for a 90s pop song), and although it's a favourite also Divas (which I always think is a bit Tina Arena verse-wise). I don't think the lesser Spice tracks are bad, but 4, 5 and 8 don't hold the same charge in the way that Spiceworld just doesn't quit.

I mean, "I'd rather be hated than pitied" and "god help the mister" and still getting pipo'd to the post shows just how strong these songs are.

I'd say Spiceworld edges it, just.

SW has their two best songs, but I prefer Spice as an album.

I don’t know why I couldn’t get rid of your quote, I just wanted to copy the template and not the offensive taste (Denying over the sultriest of gems Something Kinda Funny, really?).

I used to say Spiceworld without a doubt but as I became a more languid queen fond of a sultry gem, I have switched allegiance to Spice.

My favourite Spice Girls track of all time is now Last Time Lover. I said what I said.

I'm ashamed to say I can only remember the singles, but 'Spice' is home to my favourites (bar Stop)so I went for that.

Revisiting some Youtube clips, The SPICE live versions surpass the SpiceWorld live versions imho. You can't deny their concert re-inventions of Something Kinda Funny , Lovething, and If U Can't Dance (Mimed Geri rap or not) whereas Do It, Saturday Night Divas, or even Denying fell flat and lacked that oomph.
