British Pop at its best!

If you're looking for an album you want to dance to, sing to, chill out to, driving in your car to, or you're just looking for some good music then look no further than Blue's excellent new album.
Their voices are absolutely amazing, and unlike most boy bands you can actually tell which one of them is singing...I.e they're all individual and don't sound the same!
It's smooth grooves and hip-hop beats, plus great vocal harmonies from the boys make this a real slick & professional album.
It offers a great variety of music styles, so will suit many tastes. It includes their recent hit One Love & the new one with Elton John, which is brilliant.
There are, of course other songs on this album!
Riders is a 'rough n ready' mix of strong beats and vocal harmonies, it really gets your heading nodding along!
Flexin' takes on a slower groove, with guitars and is perfect for chillin' to.
She Told Me, about one of their sisters best mates (?!) is typical Blue, great beats and Lee's voice sounds amazing on this one!
Right Here Waiting has a kind of a 70s disco beat goin on, it reminds me of early Take That, its the most 'typical' boy band song on the album, but its still great and its great for a party!
U Make Me Wanna, another slow one & another great one to chill to.
Ain't Got You is on the same path as All Rise & Fly By II, they've started playing this in clubs already, it's going to be huge!
Supersexual is pure R&B and despite the title is a very sweet song about being in love.
Don't Treat Me Like A Fool is an old Angie Stone song and they really do it justice, a great 'break-up' song to listen to.
Get Down, another R&B song, but very smooth and chilled, Antony's voice sounds really strong on this one.
Privacy, very Hip Hop, you wouldn't think it was a boy band singing this, Simon & Dunk sound sensational on this. Wicked Tune!
Without You another typical 'Blue' song, great.
Invitation, more R&B, Hip Hop vibes on this, another great chill out tune!
Like A Friend, my favourite song on the album, the beginning sounds very much like Ben by Micheal Jackson, its a really sweet song about loving someone and them not loving you back. Antony sings most of this song and sounds great, his voice has improved considerably from their first album, the bridge sees Lee belting out that amazing voice of his once again,I can't describe his voice, it just sends tingles down your spine.
This really is a truely amazing album and is great for any CD collection. These boys have got real talent, they're miles ahead of those other boy bands, watch out because Blue are about to become huge!
