To be fair you can be as IRONIC as you ALL WISH, but she had SOME decent songs. Impromptu top 5:

  1. You Gotta Be
  2. Kissing You
  3. Delicate
  4. Crazy Maze
  5. Feel So High

Although the well is pretty shallow beyond those. Obviously Life and What's Your Sign, but they go BEYOND PARODY.

I quick BROWSE through her back catalogue shows she includes Feel So High on THREE ALBUMS.

Where Des'ree leads, Britney follows.

Feel So High was GRAND. The rest LESS SO

EXACTLY this. I bought "Feel So High" the first time around because it was so good but then nothing beyond that.

"Life" is fucking APPALLING and "You Gotta Be" had any life drained out of it by the time of its fourteenth release.

Oh HOLD ON, I love "Delicate" too, but that's more TERENCE TRENT D'ARBY than her...

The outro does have these pretty perfect Des'ree lyrics:

I believe in you, every day, every day,
I believe in you, every way, every way,
I believe in you, yes I do, yes I do,
I believe, I believe in you

Ivor Novello is shaking in his coffin.

The album is really dull.

I quite like 'Nothing I Can Do'. That's it.

The album's actually really lovely. Nothing groundbreaking OBVIOUSLY but a very pleasant listen.

I didn't hear any massive lyrical bombs although there's something about Year 9 poetry homework about:

As the years flow by
The tears they dry
I wondered why
I was holding out
Terrified by doubt
Was I in or out?
