Rachel Stevens, Ex S - Club Member Delivered to us a Pop Masterpiece called "Funky Dory", it has a lot of catchy songs, delicious beats and seductive lyrics.
Rachel is still growing in many ways. Since she left "S Club", she has a more mature, fresh & cosmopolitan sound, making her the ideal pop icon.
Every song on "Funky Dory" has a "Something" that keeps you listening to the album more and more.
1. Sweet Dreams (My LA EX): The Lead Single, It has a very acoustic sound. Produced by Cathy Dennis, the song has style and the general audience liked it - My LA EX peaked at Number 2 in the UK.
2. Funky Dory: Lots of Latin Beats, Funny & Catchy Lyrics -The title track was the 2nd Single from the Album
3. Fools: Great Song - It stays in your mind. Again, Rachel is delivering to us an acoustic song.
4. Breathe In, Breathe Out - Fresh Sound, perfect for the morning, "Breathe In, Breathe Out" is a standout of the album
5. Glide: Exquisite Song, "Glide" is one of my favorites from "Funky Dory". It may sound strange at first, but it will grow on you. Pure Pop Perfection
6. Heaven Has To Wait: The "Ballad", Heaven has to wait is one of my favorite songs of 2004 (That says a Lot). Rachel shows her vocal range on this one.
7. Blue Afternoon: Relaxing Track, again Rachel scores here. "Blue Afternoon" is perfect on those rainy days or as the title says, is great in those Blue Afternoons
8. I Got The Money: It sounds good, it's a great track to listen in some nights - For a strange reason, it reminds me of a Casino
9. Little Secret: Catchy Chorus & Lyrics - This Song was the B-Side to "Sweet Dreams (My LA Ex)"
10. Solid: It's one of the strongest Tracks of the album. As the title says it's "Solid", Rachel sings very well in this one too

Late last year you probably heard the single "Sweet Dreams My LA Ex", saw the video on TV and thought, hey that's pretty good. You probably then saw the album "Funky Dory" on the racks in the record shop and thought, yeah the single was good, but the rest is bound to be standard pop pap filler. After all, this is Rachel S Club, the plastic pop puppet.
But, if you did think that, how wrong you were. This is an excellent album. Full of foot tapping, bass thudding, hook laden songs of contemporary pop/rock/funk - music for grown ups. The care and attention lavished on the songwriting, production and performance shines through on every track. If this had been a debut album from a cooler artist than Rachel Stevens it would have been showered with best album and best newcomer nominations.
If you don't believe me (and the music critic from The Observer for God's sake who gave it five stars!), listen to it yourself. You won't be disappointed.
And now, reissued with the added bonus of Rachel's collaboration with Richard X on the thunderous "Some Girls"!
A work of pop art indeed.

There have been many rumors about a re-release of Rachel's fantastic album "Funky Dory" (first release in September 2003). After the cancelling of the third single "Breathe In, Breathe Out" everyone wanted to hear the new version of it that was re-recorded in Sweden. Now we'll be able to hear the single mix of a great song! Next to this there is her brandnew single "Some Girls" and the Sky Sports Commercial song: "More, More, More" (cover of 70s disco hit).
I actually don't know what the "Sweet Dreams (Original Radio Edit)", but I guess it's the version we already know from the first album.
What's new?
* Artwork
* "Funky Dory (Single Version)"
* "Breathe In, Breathe Out (Single Version)"
* "Some Girls"
* "More, More, More"
* "Some Girls (Remix)"
and maybe: "Sweet Dreams My L.A. Ex (Original Radio Edit)"
Everyone who hasn't bought the original album yet: Buy this re-release! It's your second chance to hear songs sung by a big talent: Rachel Stevens. And for those who bought her first album can also buy this new version - why not? There are cool new tracks and the cover is just amazing!
So go and get it :)

Funky Dory (new version) is an album definitely worth checking out.
The album explores a variety of styles, with each track having its own identity. While the album has a focus on funky pop/R&B tracks (eg. Sweet Dreams My LA Ex, Glide), there is more variety in the form of laid back tracks (eg. Heaven Has To Wait, Blue Afternoon) and dancey tracks (eg. Some Girls, More More More).
The original version of the album was good, but more has been added to really pull together the album and make it worth it's 5-star rating.
WHAT'S BEEN ADDED:
This new version features the recent single 'Some Girls', a new track 'More More More', the single mix of 'Funky Dory', a brand new version of the track 'Breathe In Breathe Out' and a very good remix of 'Some Girls'.

Rachel Stevens, Ex S - Club Member just delivered to us a Pop Masterpiece called "Funky Dory", which include a lot of catchy songs, delicious beats and seductive lyrics.
Rachel is still growing in many ways. Since she left the massive "S Club", she has a more mature, fresh & cosmopolitan sound, making her the ideal pop icon.
Also, every song on "Funky Dory" has a 'special something' that keeps you hooked to the album.
Let's review the album tracks:
1. Some Girls: The Sport Relief's single of 2004, "Some Girls" it's an electro flavoured track ala Goldfrapp's "Strict Machine" -which exploded on the USA dance chart a couple of months ago-, easily one of the best tracks of the year !
2. Sweet Dreams (My LA EX): The Lead Single of the album, It has a very acoustic sound to it. Produced by Cathy Dennis, the song has an unique style and *obviously* the mainstream audience liked it - My LA EX peaked at Number 2 in the UK.
3. Funky Dory: Fabulous track, which has an original sound & strangely catchy lyrics - The title track was the 2nd Single from the Album, but it was sadly overlooked by the UK public back in December 2003 =(
4. Fools: Great song - It will stay in your mind for a while, you have been warned!. Again, Rachel is delivering to us an acoustic pop song. This one was also included on Disney's 'The Princess Diaries 2' soundtrack, but with 'less seductive' lyrics
5. Breathe In, Breathe Out: Fresh & uplifting track, perfect for a sunny day because of it's happy lyrics & strings, "Breathe In, Breathe Out" is a standout of the album and shines with it's own light
7. Glide: Exquisite Song, "Glide" it's one of my favorites from "Funky Dory". It may sound strange at first -it has weird beats in the background-, but it will grow on you quickly.
