5.0 out of 5 stars Great comeback song!, 18 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Something New (MP3 Download)
After their "year long" break, one of the best pop bands ever have returned with a new single, and it's excellent!

I wasn't very sure about the song on the first listen. It just seemed unoriginal and generic, but after a few listens, I've come to realise that it's a perfect comeback for them. It manages to strike the right balance between the signature Girls Aloud sound and most chart music. Let's face it, if they released a song in the same vein as Long Hot Summer or Biology, it, and the band, would have sunk like a stone.

Something New has everything a good Girls Aloud song should have. Fast pace, crazy lyrics, and multiple choruses. Oh, and it has to be catchy. This song perfectly fits that description.

Many people have compared it to GA's previous single Something Kinda Ooooh, but I think it's far better. When Ooooh came out, I thought it was good, but nothing new, it was simply a Girls Aloud tune by numbers, but Something New really feels like a step forward for them. Basically, Something Kinda Ooooh is just something kinda "Ooooh!", but Something New really is something new.
