They're back - and ready to run 'the show' again...,
This review is from: Something New (MP3 Download)
Finally, after three long years away to pursue solo projects, Britain's five favourite ladies are back! Now celebrating a decade in music since they first appeared in our lives as fresh faced wannabes on 'Popstars: The Rivals', Girls Aloud ring in the sound of celebration with 'Something New', the lead off single from their new greatest hits album, aptly titled 'Ten'.
As bolshy, fun and frenetic as their classics before it - 'Sound of the Underground', 'The Show', 'Love Machine', 'Biology' and 'Something Kinda Ooooh' - it's everything you'd expect of a Girls Aloud comeback single - and then some. Once again it's another dead on the mark collaboration with Brian Higgins and his team at Xenomania, and in much the same way they left their boyband competitors in the shade 10 years ago, so too they do on the songs' addictive holler of 'Go girls, g g go go go/We girls gonna take control/You boys better know know know/we girls gonna run this show'.
There is a certain magic the minute Cheryl, Kimberley, Nicola, Nadine and Sarah get together with Xenomania to craft their finely perfected and very British pop music. And it's testament that 'Something New' proves they've not lost their magic 10 years on. Here's to the next 10!
