5.0 out of 5 stars Geri excels herself, 16 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Scream If You Wanna Go Faster (Audio CD)
1 - Scream If You Wanna Go Faster - The title track and rumoured to be the next single. It's a rockier track than Geri is used to, obviously influenced by George Micheal. A high energy song, with a cathcy chorus. 8/10
2 - Shake Your Bootie Cutie - Alike to Bag It Up, this is probably the catchiest song on the album and is probably the one that will stand out at first. The whole song is tacky, the lyrics are awful 'Sexy daddy baby', but it all bodes together really well and one of the best on the album. 9/10
3. Calling - A big, Latino influenced ballad that shows Geri's voice at its best - her limited voice fares well in these slower songs. This song has been hailed by many as the best song on the album, not my personal favourite, but then again it isn't my type of song. I like it, just find it rather boring if not in the right mood. 7/10
4. Feels Like Sex - Geri's raunchiest song 'Ever felt too hot to go to bed, touched yourself instead?'. This was going to be the first song released, but then Raining Men came along and to coincide with Bidget Jones Diary she had to release that instead, so almost a definite bet for a single. Cool and funky, another great song. 8/10
5. Circles Round the Moon - Called the albums 'Lift Me Up', but for me pales when compared to it. It seems to lack any real emotion and is far too laid back, then again it is a nice song. This is rumoured to be put on the 'Harry Potter' films sound track as the song is influenced by the novels. Not my favourite, but still good. 7/10
6. Love is the Only Light - As sung on TOTP. Another ballad, a slow song that sticks to the same pop song routine and explores no new ground. Probably the best ballad on the album in my opinion. Simplistic and very natural sounding. 8/10
7. Strength of a Woman - My personal favourite on the album, it's very catchy and cheerful - the type of song that the Spice Girls would sing before they attempted R&B. A typical Geri song and another typical pop song. I don't really know why this song appeals to me so much, it is just so 'good!' 10/10
8 - Don't Call Me Baby - This is very alike to 'Stop', but sadly not as good. An obvious filler for the album, but still good. And no it is not a cover of 'Madison Avenue' 7/10
9 - Lovey Dovey Stuff - Geri doing reggae - *shock*. A nice laid back song that just drifts away, sadly it drifts away so much that it's instantly forgettable. The worst song on the album for me. 6/10
10. It's Raining Men - The critics call this the worst song on the album, but in my opinion it is great. I don't really need to explain it much as I'm sure most of you have heard it. Very catchy and well produced. 10/10
11. Heaven and Hell (Being Geri Halliwell) - Geri talks about the disadvantages of being famous, it is all really a big mickey take out of the media and herself. It is Geri just having fun, an obvious bonus track. Catchy albeit disjointed. 7/10
12 - I Was Made That Way - One of the bonus tracks to 'It's Raining Men' - a ballad. This is a half hearted, tired sounding song is actually good, but not great, it lacks something special that most of the other songs have. 6.5/10
Overall - This is far better than Schizophonic, Geri's lost the breathy diva style voice and just gone for attemtping pure pop songs that will appeal to her fans. It lacks any sense of depth, but that is why it is such a great pop album. It wont go down in history, but will be remembered by her fans as being a good pop album. If you like pop you will love this, Geri isn't trying to be something she is not, her voice suits these songs much better. But if you hated Raining Men, don't be discouraged as it has been hailed by far the worst track on the album, but if you loved Raining Men you will probably love this album. Geri at her best!
