It’s that time again and although at times I thought we’d never see the day, Girls Aloud have another album out! And what better way to celebrate the occasion than with a track-by-track review? 1. The Show I still love this one. It may not be the fierce electro-pop they’re known for but it’s still… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: Girls Aloud – What Will The Neighbours Say?
1. I think I have cured myself of liking Green Day. My sister has bought the album which makes them unappealing in itself, but now I’ve listened to it and it’s rubbish. 2. Will, Maroon 5, GA, Natasha Bedingfield and the Scissor Sisters are all in the top 10 of Record Of The Year! So… Continue reading Good news all round!
The Delays – Lost In A Melody How did I not know that this band are amazing?! This sexy electro-rock storm is one of my favourite songs around at the moment. The music, the lyrics, the high bits and the glorious video are exactly what credible grown-up music should be in 2004. And hopefully this… Continue reading Video Killed The Radio Star
On Tuesday night I attended my 2nd full Darren Hayes concert (but the 6th time I have seen him sing live) and I have to agree with Darren himself who said it was the best gig of his life. I went unsure of what to expect – not having read any reviews due to this… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: Darren Hayes Live In London
(Click above to buy) If you don’t know who this band are, you are seriously losing out. With tracks written by Karen Poole (Alisha’s Attic), Hannah Robinson (Xenomania) and Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol), that combination alone was enough to get me rushing to the shops and after the initial confusion of not finding it in… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: Freeform Five – Strangest Things
Plus: Just how cute is this photo? Extremely! Well done Will for not wearing anything embarrassing (I know it’s hard for you sometimes) on a day that will probably come back to haunt you every Christmas til the end of time. What a shame for all the other participants that they won’t be famous anymore… Continue reading Hooray!
Click here to download the new video for Sunday Morning (thanks to UKMaroon5 on their site). And here is a blurry screencap of by far the best moment in any music video around at the moment: Awww! Ryan gets to be in this one quite a lot as well, and Adam looks far less scary.… Continue reading New Maroon 5 Video Excitement
Green Day – Boulevard Of Broken Dreams I’m not a Green day fan in any way, but with this new single I am surprisingly impressed. I had heard that their new CD is their poppiest yet, and this is a pop/rock anthem that you can’t fail to sway along to. I love how it whooshes… Continue reading Video Killed The Radio Star
I wouldn’t call myself a fan of Daniel himself but I really liked his last album and his general idiocy doesn’t stop him being a great songwriter. Here is my short guide of what to expect from his new CD: Growing Up A tougher urban/latino number to open with that wouldn’t have sounded out of… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: Daniel Bedingfield – Second First Impression
I’m very ashamed to say that I have been enjoying some rather unethical singles lately. First I found myself downloading and playing on repeat I Predict A Riot by the Kaiser Chiefs. And now I’m becoming worryingly fond of Green Day (they’re just like Busted except semi-good), in particular their incredibly lovely new single Boulevard… Continue reading Losing My Religion
