With Chemistry Sarah, Nicola, Nadine, Kimberley and Cheryl have made a quirky British pop album. In a genre where girl bands dream of being Destinys Vogue, Girls Aloud have made an album that reflects what its like to be a 20-something girl living in the UK.
Theres attitude ("Models), theres heartbreak ("Whole Lotta History"), theres sauciness ("Watch Me Go"). Make no mistake this is a 24-carot solid gold pop album but thrown into the mix are snatches of rock, house, electro, salsa, rap and ska. The album has been made by breaking the rules on what you can do with pop. Who said you cant have two choruses in one song or three different sounds in another?
Chemistry also features the new hit single "Biology" and the forthcoming Christmas single "See The Day" as well as their summer smash "Long Hot Summer".
Quirky, modern and dripping with attitude Chemistry is here, and holds no disappointments.
Produced solely by pop darlings Xenomania, the girls rip through a variety of styles, paces and Neneh Cherry-esque raps, sometimes, as in "Biology", all within the same song.
Able to finally perform equally well on ballads as up-tempo tracks, the infectious chorus to "Models" is a brilliant example of their trademark strutting attitude, while "Whole Lotta History" stands out as a lush ballad reminiscent of the Spice Girls.
Whoever said pop was dead? GA have resuscitated its corpse by wedding chart-friendly melodies to experimental avant-garde sounds, particularly on the sublime "Swinging London Town"
These girls are banging on your door and dying to start a party. I dare you to let them in. --Talia Kraines

Then one day along come Girls Aloud. Like the majority of the population I quickly dismissed them, though their first single was fantastic. I do not own any of the girls previous albums, because despite some really catchy singles, I never saw them to be Album material.
So, then comes the song Biology. Wow, what a tune. Its so different from everyday pop tunes and just brings a fresh new vibe to the British music scene. I waited for the next single, See The Day which I was really impressed with, so I bought the album and lets just say, I dont regret it.
It kicks off with the superb 'Models',upbeat and fun to dance to in your bedroom! Next is Biology.
'Wild Horses' then comes and is just a superb, attitude-ridden slamming tune, with some wonderfully quirky verses. After this comes 'See The Day', and then 'Watch Me Go' which is a slightly weaker tune, but is listenable to.
'Waiting' is simply fantastic. The crazy lyrics build the song up and Nadine and Nicola's vocals are faultless. Next is a brilliant ballad - 'Whole Lotta' History'. The beginning is a little weak, but the vocals of Cheryl, Nadine and Nicola make the song great, and give real emotion to it. Fantastic.
'Long Hot Summer' didnt do too well last year, but it does seem to grow on you the more you hear despite the random first line - "I know you like to wear my dressing gown when I'm not there".
'Swinging London Town' is fantastic, but im not quite sure why. It takes such a new direction in music, that it needs many listens. 'Its Magic' and 'No Regrets' are good album tracks, but are not right for release. Finally, 'Racey Lacey' signs off with style and fun. An upbeat fab pop tune, that reminds me of 'The Show'.
All in all, a magnificant album with REAL POP TUNES. Dont expect deep and meaningful lyrics, cuz they aint here!
Something I love about Girls Aloud, is that they dont pretend to write the songs, or produce them or anything like that. They know what they are and they excell in it.
Their music makes people happy, so whats the problem? Dance away, have fun and buy this album. Honestly the best pop album I own. It is very impressive - well done girls - keep it going!
My favourite songs from Chemistry are 'Watch Me Go', 'Biology', 'It's Magic' and 'Racey Lacey'.
This album is a must have in anyones CD collection.
I bought this the day it came out and have bought other CD's after this, but still i'm listening to this one!!
My track review:
2. Models - This is an upbeat song that is repeatative and fun. Could maybe eventually get bored of this but amazing the first 100 listens, 7/10
3. Biology - The most successful single on this album, this song is so great it never gets boring but is missing something I can't put my finger on, 9/10
4. Wild Horses - It has a funny start that makes the song perfect! This is also a bit repeatative but the hooks and verses get you dancing, 10/10
5. See The Day - perfect for christmas, not my favourite single, 7/10
6. Watch Me Go - party pleaser, catchy and funky, this track is perfect, and perfect in every way. Cheryl's rapping is ace! 10/10
7. Waiting - good and has an amazing bridge that Sarah sings, 9/10
8. Whole Lotta History - nice catchy ballad, 9/10
9. Long Hot Summer - many people say this is the worst single from the girls, but I disagree, I think it's the best! It's so fresh and amazing! It's my favourite on the album too! 10/10
10. Swinging London Town - Perfect for the lifestyles the girls lead but you have to give it a few listens to get into it, and you won't get bored of it too. 9/10
11. It's Magic - Nicola goes solo on this song and the beat of this is too good to be true, some people also dislike this song but it's one of the best, well done Nicola! 10/10
12. No Regrets - an up to date ballad where nothing can be faulted, 9/10
13. Racey Lacey - an upbeat song for the end of an amazing album. But I really don't like the way it ends so suddenly. Catchy though. 9/10
