What can I say about this CD? Should I follow the usual critics and have a go at Melanie's rumoured reluctance to join the spice re-union, blab on about her past glories and failures? No is the simple answer! Her previous album 'Hot' didn't feel quite right for me, so as I begun to play this album I was pleasantly surprised by its direction and overall feel. It's a journey, full of summer sunshine, hope and lyrics that have come from the heart.
Today
The first single from the album. A song about positivity, the dawning of a new day with a feeling of new beginnings and dreams. The music is catchy, makes you bop your head, lovely string arrangements and Mel's voice is in fine form. 8/10

Stay in bed days
We all have these days, pull the covers back over your head and ignore the world for a day. Musically, I'd compare it to Sheryl Crow's sound, upbeat, full of guitars and melodic, plus the hand claps sound great!! 7/10
Beautiful girl
A beautiful ballad about her daughter Pheonix. Usually I shy away from Pop mum's songs about their kids (usually over sentimental and sickly) but this simple song hits all the right emotions and can easily be directed to a loved one of your own. I would liken this song to the Spice Girls song 'Goodbye'. 9/10
Music of the night (perdido)
I'm a sucker for latino tinged pop songs and this one is no exception. Salsa overload and shimmering all over the place. Uplifting, melodic and fun. Perfect summer song and one of my favourites. 10/10
If I had my life again
A song about no regrets, mid tempo style, gentle strumming guitars and piano led. Picks up in middle of the song but the song is neither great nor bad. Nice enough but nothing special.

OK lets face it Mel B does not have the greatest voice in the music industry- it is therefore a tribute to say that she has managed to produce this distinctly average pop album.
1.Today- A good first single one of the better songs on the album. 8/10
2.Stay In Bed Days- An excellent upbeat pop song, a personal fave of mine. 9/10
3.Beautiful Girl- A strong ballad with a simple melodic piano. 8/10
4.Music Of The Night- Another uptempo song with latin flavours. 7/10
5.If I Had My Life Again- A truly dross-filled song. Rubbish. 3/10
6.In Too Deep- Not as bad as the previous effort, but then again what could be. 6/10
7.Sweet Pleasure- Melanie talks her way through this song. 6/10
8.L.A. State of Mind- Almost recreating some of the brilliance of the first few tracks, but the chorus hampers this promising effort. 6.5/10
9.Say Say Say- A good ballad. 7/10
10.Bad Bad Girl- Mel's screechy vocals ruin this already average song. 4/10
11.Hold On- A stripped down affair, again so so cheesy. 5/10

Average Score- 6.3= 3stars. Overall this is not a bad album, but Mel really should not have included a couple of the songs on this album, as they really weaken it. Certainly not a classic, but then again it should not have sold as appallingly as it did!

Im so glad Mel B has released a 2nd independant album its long overdue, and the result is great. No more RnB that diddnt always work for her instead 11 catchy summery tinged tunes that are all easy on the ear.
Today is summery and catchy upbeat pop, Stay in bed days slightly rocky and upbeat (one of my faves) Beautifull girl is a catchy ballad,music of the night is fun salsary pop,the title track is a very catchy out and out pop tune whilst bad bad girl is fantstic 80's electronica on which mel sounds excellent. The others are all fun tracks well worth catching out. I recommend!!

PLEASE REMEMBER MELANIE DID NOT EANT TO PROMOTE THIS ALBUM SO IT WASN'T CONSIDERED AS A FLOP LIKE THE PERSON WHO DID THE REVIEW BELOW. IT DONE WELL WITH NO PROMOTION, AND BOY DIDN'T IT DESERVE IT?

Alot of people seem to dis a Spice Girl at a solo attempt, and to be honest you really shouldnt. This album is an absolulte gem and I personally love it. I'm not really into pop music, I'm quite a Punk / Acoustic fan, which this album is quite Acoustic.

Here is an honest review of the tracks.

TODAY: A proper feel good song, chilled out and relaxing. Simple beats. Melanie at her best. The downside is that this song only last for about 3 minutes, and I feel it's too good a song to end. 9 / 10.

STAY IN BED DAYS: An uptempo windows down and drive song... Another amazing song by Melanie. Her vocals have always been fantastic and on this song and all the rest you'll realise what a stunning singer she is. 8 / 10

BEAUTIFUL GIRL: A song for Phoneix, its a beautiful ballad and shows a different side to Melanie. Stunning. 10 / 10

MUSIC OF THE NIGHT (PERIDO): I personally ain't that keen on this track, it is a latin song but on the otherside it shows off Melanie's beautiful voice. People who like Latin songs will defintley love this, it is a happy song though and it is a grower (for me personally) 7 / 10

IF I HAD MY LIFE AGAIN: A song you would NOT expect for Melanie Brown! It's a beautiful ballad and you can really play this song whatever mood you in. It helps you put things into perspective. 10 / 10

IN TOO DEEP: An amazing summery mid tempo ballad. It is a gem, and a personal favourite. 9 / 10.

SWEET PLEASURE: I listened to this song once and I didnt like it. But the third time I loved it.
