4.0 out of 5 stars Siobhan's exit party!, 10 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Wow! [Platinum Re-Issue] (Audio CD)
This final studio album from the original Bananarama line-up will be a welcome addition to anyone's collection. After their huge success (including a US Billboard #1) with Venus, it seemed inevitable that the group would return to the Stock Aitken Waterman production team in an effort to strike gold again.

And they did. Wow features several seminal Bananarama singles, including Love In The First Degree, I Want You Back and I Can't Help It.

This re-issue includes the original album version of Nathan Jones, featuring Siobhan, and the single version (which was re-recorded with new recruit Jacqui O'Sullivan). It also includes Mr Sleaze, which was listed as a flip-side on the AA-side single release of Love in The First Degree (and credited to Stock Aitken Waterman).

Considering this re-release includes bonus tracks, a disappointing omission is the single Love, Truth & Honesty, which, although admittedly released as part of the Greatest Hits Collection, does tie in with the chronology of singles taken from this album, and would have been a welcome inclusion on an expanded edition of Wow.

Regardless, this is an enjoyably confident pop album, and a glorious last shout from the original line-up. Although there were high points to come, the spirit would never truly be the same again.
