The best that pop has to offer!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Collection - Studio Albums / B Sides / Live (Audio CD)
Now as a hardcore GA fan i already owned all their studio albums and B-Sides, however i did not have the Tangled Up live CD and of course the gorgeously laid out, artwork and essays written by Popjustice founder Peter Robinson and Xenomania's main man Brian Higgins.
...but of course this boxset is primarily aimed at the newcomers, or fans who in the past purchased the one-off single but not a full album. For anyone contemplating purchasing this boxset, i insist you do. Girls Aloud were a rarity in the fickle landscape of Pop music, they (with Xenomania) created albums full of unique and creative pop that never shyed away from styles deemed odd or unusual, with music that incorporated elements from rock to jazz to country and even farm yard animals!
For 10 years (8 years career) GA changed Pop and that deserves respect - not snobbery.
