5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 1 April 2013

This review is from: Wow (Audio CD)
After their success with 'True Confessions' it wqs clear that the trio of Keren, Sara and Siobhan were at their peak and was not going to be messed around with.
After the international success of Venus, led the band into the hit-making factory mill of Stock, Aitken and Waterman; who were responsible for some of the biggest selling 80's pop records and beyond.
Known for their trademark 'dancefloor' high energy sound attracted member Siobhan due to her fondness of Dead or Alive's You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) record.
Bananarama sought out a production relationship with the SAW group and was to put Bananarama at the top of the charts for a further three years. As a result of motown-like song 'Love In The First Degree' 'I Heard A Rumour' disco-themed 'I Can't Help It' and.possibly 'one of the cheeiest songs we have ever written - says Keren 'I Want You Back' and many more.
The WOW! album is a much needed staple which is still keeping the 80's genre alive, Bananarama have proved with this body of lyrically and musically diverse sound that self-song writing can prove better than highly technical and manufactural bands and records.
Justin Bieber, One Direction, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Rihanna, JLS... This is how you make a good pop record... This is how you do it and taking into consideration that EVERY song WAS WRITTEN by all and only members means thqt they areas highly regarded song writters.more now than ever. The songs have lasted because of their originality and cleverness and the dancefloor gestural ability which each (and every) song evokes.

5 Stars.
Fantastic
A much needed add to any fan's collection or any fan of the 80's genre.
Everything which made the 80's such a success is right here.
Bananarama have sold more singles than the Spice Girls and more albums than Girls Aloud and The Supremes and in 1988 were featured in the Guiness Book of World Records as the most popular girl group of all time due to having the most chart entries.

I think the success and songs speak for themselves.
Well done Bananarama!
