BBC Review

Now celebrating their tenth anniversary, Girls Aloud have released an almost blight-free series of fantastic singles and breathtaking albums. They’ve come a long way from their reality TV beginnings, not only tabloid darlings but close to national treasures.

On hiatus after 2008’s Out of Control, Girls Aloud left something of a hole in the mainstream music landscape. The Saturdays did a fine job of stepping in as replacements – but as time passed so demand for a Girls Aloud reunion grew. And now they’re back to restore balance to the pop cosmos.

Although members have dabbled in solo careers, there’s a real feeling of completeness when these five – Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding – click back into formation. There’s the sense that they each only achieve true star quality when a component of Girls Aloud.

Ten is an update of 2006’s best-of The Sound of Girls Aloud, with tracks added from 2007’s Tangled Up and Out of Control, plus four new songs. It’s not compiled based on chart positions, so their sole non-top-10 effort, the masterpiece of Untouchable, is rightfully included. Hardly missed are See the Day, I Think We’re Alone Now and their collaboration with Sugababes, Walk This Way.

Alongside the Xenomania hit machine, at their best Girls Aloud create a universe entirely of their own, standing as one of the greatest pop acts of this century. And all of their classics are here: the retro shimmer of The Promise; the top-class Call the Shots; the four-songs-at-once genius of Biology; and the futurist doof of Something Kinda Ooh.

As its title suggests, Something New is just that, a fanfare-like call to arms announcing the group’s return. Elsewhere, Beautiful ‘Cause You Love Me is a blub-friendly empowerment cut complete with its own fireworks; On the Metro erupts into raving-through-the-tears amazingness; and Every Now and Then is a killer-chorused banger.

Ten is incredible. It’s up there with Gold, Substance and Discography in terms of greatest-hits sets. It’s proof of how perfect pop can be in the right hands, and if it’s the last long-player Girls Aloud put their name to, their legacy is assured.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girls are back!!! 28 Nov 2012
By Mrs P
Format:Audio CD
The cd is a brilliant mix of all their songs plus a bonus cd. Memory of you is the best song on the deluxe album which was never released or on an album. Fab cd and worth every penny.

"Something New"
The first single release in nearly 4 years from a group I thought would never reform and to be honest I'd lost faith. In the early days of the hiatus, I imagined that The Saturdays would have received all my affections from then on. They have done a reasonable job at keep the girl group torch lit for me but now that Xenomania's guinea pigs are back there's no competition! Coming back with this as the lead single of 4 possibles, this was, I feel the wisest choice. It feels like Girls Aloud's best bits all rolled into a 3-minute megamix, with a 2012 nod. Sounds amazing on the dancefloor, in the bedroom and the pub! 95%

"The Promise"
Brian Higgins created this track to really put the girls on the map. Pity they then split just after! Nevertheless, with a nod to 60s Motown, "The Promise" is a fabulous lead track for an album (Out of Control), though, it doesn't necessarily fit in the with the electronic feel of the majority of their 5th studio collection. The fastest-selling single in the UK in 2008 (until The X Factor finalists beat them the week after), I absolutely adored this track for months. It's aged well also...but maybe not as well as some of their other tracks. 87%

"The Loving Kind"
Co-written by the Pet Shop Boys, you can easily imagine Neil Tennant singing this sweetened sequel to 2007 smash hit, "Call the Shots", the lyrics describing one's slight desperation to hold on to a fading relationship. Bittersweet, in that the lyrics are quite sad yet the music is as uplifitng as a ballad of this nature could be...like a less defiant version of "Call the Shots" only with PSB association, which would continue to influence the sound of their latest studio album "Out of Control.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but disposable 24 Jan 2014
By JB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is good pop, but not great. All the best hits are here - 'Something Kinda Ooh', 'The Promise', 'Sexy! No No No', and 'The Show' as well as 'Sound of the Underground' and the underrated 'Untouchable'. But the rest of it is weak and pale by comparison - 'The Loving Kind', for example, would have been better suited to a B-side, and who knows why Girls Aloud did so many sub-standard covers?

Girls Aloud occupy a bit of a strange place in the girl group world. Better than 'The Saturdays' and 'All Saints' but nowhere near 'The Spice Girls' league. Where the Spice Girls had the 2 Mels with a good voice each and enough chutzpah from Geri, Victoria, and Emma to ensure their voices didn't matter so much, not one of Girls Aloud has a strong, remarkable voice and indeed its often hard to determine who is singing. Neither does any individual member of Girls Aloud have a distinct personality in the way all the Spice Girls had. They're more likely to be found in 'Heat' magazine - Sarah as a caner, and the vastly overrated Cheryl for not even slightly earning her massive 'X Factor' fee when, for example, she failed to know a famous Elton John number.

This is a fair enough album if you want something to dance around your handbag with, and, as mentioned at the beginning, there are some good songs - just no classics. 'The Spice Girls' may not have been everyone's cup of tea, but at least their music was fresh, original, and memorable. Everyone had a favourite Spice, even though not many will admit it these days. In tweny years time, the 'Spice Girls' will be up there with 'The Supremes' amd 'The Ronettes', while in twenty years time Girls Aloud won't even be a distant memory. Not even to 'Heat' magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could have been from HMV. 26 Dec 2013

Packaged well, scratch free and plays perfectly. Tunes are good but most can be found on other albums with only 4 new. Still worth it though, even if only for the cover and photographs.
