4.0 out of 5 stars Little Miss Sophie does it again
The single, "Music gets the best of me" is very much in the same vein as Sophie Ellis-Bextor's material from her "Read My Lips" album - catchy, light and cheerfully bubbly. Being a big fan of hers, I would say that anyone who enjoyed her previous singles will appreciate this latest release. Just the kind of happy music that'll cheer you up if you're down, and also a great...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not her Best actually...
Despite dull indie wannabes theaudience, it took Spiller�s summer anthem �Groovejet (If This Ain�t Love)� for Sophie Ellis Bextor to escape her mother�s shadow. Hot on the heels of beating Posh spice to No. 1, she cashed in with a dance-pop solo debut album, Read My Lips. Granted it spawned a few catchy hits, but with...

This review is from: Music Gets the Best of Me [CD 1] (Audio CD)
Despite dull indie wannabes theaudience, it took Spiller�s summer anthem �Groovejet (If This Ain�t Love)� for Sophie Ellis Bextor to escape her mother�s shadow. Hot on the heels of beating Posh spice to No. 1, she cashed in with a dance-pop solo debut album, Read My Lips. Granted it spawned a few catchy hits, but with �Music Gets the Best of Me� (a song telling a man not to be jealous that she prefers music, �My first love�s going strong�) one can�t help thinking Miss Bextor�s scraping the barrel a bit. Admittedly the chorus does grow on you slightly, but soon starts to grate � and being dragged out to a 6-minute �Flip n Fill�-er trance remix just aggravates the problem, although otherwise it probably improves on the slightly bland original version. Final song, �Is It Any Wonder� (Jay�s Bluesix Radio Edit) is more laidback, and almost instantly forgettable. Lacking even a memorable chorus, one can�t help thinking it�s only included on the single to show you can get worse than the A-side. If this gets the best of Miss Bextor, I feel sorry for the poor man in question...
