I had been thinking of buying this album for the last 2 years or so, but whenever I got round to it, I always saw something I thought was better and bought that instead. Besides, from listening to all the other Spice Girls' solo singles (which, apart from maybe some of Geri Halliwells, were all complete rubbish) it wasn't that high on my list of CD's to buy. So I saw it in the shops a coupla days ago on sale for £3, and thought, why not.
Now I wish I'd bought it earlier. It is just so good. Unlike the other Spice Girls who decided to play it safe with what all the other pop acts were doing, Melanie C decided to brave it with something very different, alternative even. It's hard to define her album, sort of alternative/rock/r'n'b/dance/pop. I find that Northern Star has a very similar quality to Madonna's 1998 album Ray of Light. Perhaps it's because William Orbit featured on both, but both albums have a unique sound that is somewhat dark and hypnotic. There is not one bland song on this album, and we all know bland music is the worst kind of music. Outstanding tracks include the emotion filled "Northern Star", the cool "Never be the Same Again", the beautiful "If that were me", the pumped up club anthem "I turn to you", the haunting "Feel the Sun" and the hardcore, full out rock'n'roll "Goin' Down" (which I didn't really like, but now am hooked!)
So, look past the "Spice Girl" and listen to the album without any thought of Sporty Spice. Fantastic listening guranteed.

I have always loved Mel C - but not the Spice Girls in general. I was really "grabbed" by Goin' Down - and although not blown away it made me look at her totally differently, and began to reveal her talent. Northern Star proved she can do excellent stuff without the Spice Girls (could she with them? I suppose Stop/Goodbye/Too Much??) But Never Be The Same Again is PURE GENIUS - pop & R&B & Left Eye!! What more could we ask for.
She is a rock chic with cool connections. The album (as said above) proves her sheer breadth of talent BUT!! I disagree with our Greek chum - Be the One is THE BEST TRACK EVER - picture yourself sad/alone/in Liverpool - this is just excellent. The melody, her voice - and when live - simply sublime!
Mel has now got to keep this up - she can't let the press get her down - she seems to be at the moment, ditch the scrawny footie wife and the blonde bombsite (possibly Mel B could get serious with R&B if she streches herself) BUT give up the girl act stuff - girl/boy bands DO NOT GROW UP - THEY SPLIT UP! FEEL THE HISTORY. MEL C CAN B A STAR!!

Northern Star contains so many brilliant singles that much of its content will be familiar to people already. But in my view, the album is a must-have not for the singles, but for the deliciously haunting "Why". Worth every penny for that song alone.
And if you find "Why" a bid maudlin, then Suddenly Monday directly after it will have you smiling again. Amazing that this really strong song was never released as a single - just shows the quality of the rest of the tracks.
Good luck Mel with your next album. I shall be first in the queue for it.

YES if you have ever listened to this album you'd know this: IT IS DA BOMB!!! Every one of her tracks have something inside them, from "Northern Star" and "Feel the Sun", which are obviously about Melanie C's life, to "If that were Me" which is about homeless people. One of my favorites is "Suddenly Monday", which talks about someone with a mad crush on someone else (get this line: 'You make me high, I wish that you knew, I wish I could tell you" so typical for a crush eh). To sum all that up: BUY THIS ALBUM! IT'S AWESOME!

Mel C's solo debut proves what observant Spice Girl fans knew all along: Sporty was the real voice of the band. She takes the most challenging vocal parts on all the songs I can remember, and rightfully so. We knew she had the chords to make it on her own, but Northern Star has shown that she also has the songwriting ability. The album produced two huge (number 1, I believe) hits: "I Turn To You" and "Never Be The Same Again" and boasts several thoughtful and stylistically eclectic songs. With its backing piano music, "Suddenly Monday" has a Broadway show tune quality to it; "Ga Ga" and "Goin' Down" feature heavy guitar chords and have a bit of a louder sound; "Go!" sounds like Garbage-lite. "Northern Star" is more the woman-with-an-acoustic-guitar-introspective song, much like Sheryl Crow but with more vocal power, and "If That Were Me" and "Be the One" follow the same pattern but are distinctively different. "Why" has the same kind of sound as Dido's "No Angel" LP; my personal favorites, "Feel the Sun" and "Closer" are more mellow than most of the tracks and perhaps the least Spice-ish of all Melanie's new songs. The extended version of Northern Star also includes great remixes of "I Turn To You" and "Never Be The Same Again," which surpass the originals.
Unlike the rest of the Spice Girls, who obviously rely heavily on voice training and great production to make their solo albums sound good, Melanie has a strong, distinct voice that's fully heard, finally free of heavy backing vocals-and it sounds great. Yet despite being (in many people's opinions) the most talented of the 5, Melanie was never the star of the group and doesn't get nearly as much publicity as media favorites Victoria and Geri. Northern Star shows her versatility as a singer and will hopefully help her earn some new fans.
