Product Description

Product Description

With Chemistry Sarah, Nicola, Nadine, Kimberley and Cheryl have made a quirky British pop album. In a genre where girl bands dream of being Destiny’s Vogue, Girls Aloud have made an album that reflects what it’s like to be a 20-something girl living in the UK.

There’s attitude ("Models), there’s heartbreak ("Whole Lotta History"), there’s sauciness ("Watch Me Go"). Make no mistake this is a 24-carot solid gold pop album but thrown into the mix are snatches of rock, house, electro, salsa, rap and ska. The album has been made by breaking the rules on what you can do with pop. Who said you can’t have two choruses in one song or three different sounds in another?

Chemistry also features the new hit single "Biology" and the forthcoming Christmas single "See The Day" as well as their summer smash "Long Hot Summer".

BBC Review

Quirky, modern and dripping with attitude Chemistry is here, and holds no disappointments.

Produced solely by pop darlings Xenomania, the girls rip through a variety of styles, paces and Neneh Cherry-esque raps, sometimes, as in "Biology", all within the same song.

Able to finally perform equally well on ballads as up-tempo tracks, the infectious chorus to "Models" is a brilliant example of their trademark strutting attitude, while "Whole Lotta History" stands out as a lush ballad reminiscent of the Spice Girls.

Whoever said pop was dead? GA have resuscitated its corpse by wedding chart-friendly melodies to experimental avant-garde sounds, particularly on the sublime "Swinging London Town"

These girls are banging on your door and dying to start a party. I dare you to let them in. --Talia Kraines

5.0 out of 5 stars Darling, we're a fashion don't you know? 14 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
Wow. Finally some genuine pop music. I am a fan of lots of genres of music, however, upbeat, manufactured pop has never really been on my playlists.

Then one day along come Girls Aloud. Like the majority of the population I quickly dismissed them, though their first single was fantastic. I do not own any of the girls previous albums, because despite some really catchy singles, I never saw them to be Album material.

So, then comes the song Biology. Wow, what a tune. Its so different from everyday pop tunes and just brings a fresh new vibe to the British music scene. I waited for the next single, See The Day which I was really impressed with, so I bought the album and lets just say, I dont regret it.

It kicks off with the superb 'Models',upbeat and fun to dance to in your bedroom! Next is Biology.
'Wild Horses' then comes and is just a superb, attitude-ridden slamming tune, with some wonderfully quirky verses. After this comes 'See The Day', and then 'Watch Me Go' which is a slightly weaker tune, but is listenable to.
'Waiting' is simply fantastic. The crazy lyrics build the song up and Nadine and Nicola's vocals are faultless. Next is a brilliant ballad - 'Whole Lotta' History'. The beginning is a little weak, but the vocals of Cheryl, Nadine and Nicola make the song great, and give real emotion to it. Fantastic.

'Long Hot Summer' didnt do too well last year, but it does seem to grow on you the more you hear despite the random first line - "I know you like to wear my dressing gown when I'm not there".

'Swinging London Town' is fantastic, but im not quite sure why. It takes such a new direction in music, that it needs many listens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girls Aloud have Chemistry all right. 7 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
I could not wait to get my hands on the new Girls Aloud album, due to the high quality music that the band has produced on their previous albums. There is only one song on the album that I don't like, 'No Regrets'. However the remaining 12 tracks are superb, expressing Girls Aloud's substantial talent.

My favourite songs from Chemistry are 'Watch Me Go', 'Biology', 'It's Magic' and 'Racey Lacey'.

This album is a must have in anyones CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Magic! 1 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What can I say? This is an amazing pop album. Anyone who hasn't bought this album is a fool.
I bought this the day it came out and have bought other CD's after this, but still i'm listening to this one!!
My track review:
1. Intro
2. Models - This is an upbeat song that is repeatative and fun. Could maybe eventually get bored of this but amazing the first 100 listens, 7/10
3. Biology - The most successful single on this album, this song is so great it never gets boring but is missing something I can't put my finger on, 9/10
4. Wild Horses - It has a funny start that makes the song perfect! This is also a bit repeatative but the hooks and verses get you dancing, 10/10
5. See The Day - perfect for christmas, not my favourite single, 7/10
6. Watch Me Go - party pleaser, catchy and funky, this track is perfect, and perfect in every way. Cheryl's rapping is ace! 10/10
7. Waiting - good and has an amazing bridge that Sarah sings, 9/10
8. Whole Lotta History - nice catchy ballad, 9/10
9. Long Hot Summer - many people say this is the worst single from the girls, but I disagree, I think it's the best! It's so fresh and amazing! It's my favourite on the album too! 10/10
10. Swinging London Town - Perfect for the lifestyles the girls lead but you have to give it a few listens to get into it, and you won't get bored of it too. 9/10
11. It's Magic - Nicola goes solo on this song and the beat of this is too good to be true, some people also dislike this song but it's one of the best, well done Nicola! 10/10
12. No Regrets - an up to date ballad where nothing can be faulted, 9/10
13. Racey Lacey - an upbeat song for the end of an amazing album. But I really don't like the way it ends so suddenly. Catchy though. 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Chemistry..pure brilliance 25 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
The 3rd album from girls aloud,i had in my christmas sack,if im honest even though i'm a great fan of the group i wasn't expecting it to match the greatness of 'What will the neighbours say.'How wrong could i be...The first track 'Models' totally gives the word pop/dance a new meaning by the girls completely inventing their own genre by this song,hopefully being released as a single.'Biology' is a great up tempo song with a catchy chorus again proving the band are growing in ability, strength and popularity by reaching #4 last month.'Wild horses','Racey lacey''Waiting'and 'It's magic' are examples of pure pop dance classics which will have you blasting them from your stereo,all have single release potential.
The ballads on the album 'See the day' and 'whole lotta history' prove that the girls can stretch their abilites to slower classics,these relax you with the soft vocals and melodies.'Swinging london town'is such a hard song to put into a catergory,it's so ahead of it's time and the pure brilliance of this song i can't put it into words,my favourite song on the album.
The other songs possibly the weakest on the album 'Long hot summer' which lacks zest although its a nice song to listen to,it doesn't really click and in my opinion a bad first release for the album.'Watch me go' i think can be put into the same catergory these songs would deserve about 6/10.
so in conclusion the album by far beats it's two predercessors,full of dance,pop and classic numbers..would recommend to all..ages,boys,girls and grannies!!! soemthing for everyone....Go Girls!!!! Chemistry rocks! BUY IT!
