Andy Bell – Crazy
I am crazy in love with this song! it’s exciting enough when anyone releases a catchy pop song these days, so when it’s an amazingly brilliant one like this it’s a very special occasion. Crazy even sounds like BWO in places, and that is a sure sign of greatness! He is a bit ugly and scary but CDs are for listening to, not looking at (although buff hotties and sparkly costumes never go amiss).
Nate James – Get The Message
If Nate continues to get poppier with each single he releases, his next song should be brilliant. This one is pretty catchy and quite likely to do well, but I don’t think it’ll be a massive hit. I would like to be wrong, though.
Friday Hill – Baby Goodbye
Unlike that boy with the funny eyebrows, Kenzie, Strider and Flava from Blazin’ Squad have departed from the group to become even cheesier than before. They’re the new H & Claire!
Staind – Right Here Waiting
First Nickelback, now Staind – which awful early ’00s rock band will be making a comeback next? Limp Bizkit? Slipknot? It had better not be Creed!
Lee Ryan – Turn Your Car Around
Not too bad an effort, but a bit Kristian Leontiou-lite (which is very ‘lite’ indeed!), and if this is all he’s got for the 2nd single, how dull must the rest of the album be?
Jenny Frost – Crash Landing
This remidns me of a song called Utopia (Where I Want To Be) by Stereo Star feat. Mia J, which was released earlier this year to little success, and I doubt the presense of an Atomic Kitten will make any difference.
The Cardigans – I Need Some Fine Wine, And You, You Need To Be Nicer
The Cardies are back, Nina is looking more like Claire Danes than ever and their new song has an excellent title. But does the song live up to it’s name? Yes, I’d say it does! Her voice sounds fab as ever and the chorus is particularly good.
Bow Wow feat. Omarion – Let Me Hold You
L’il Bow Wow is back and all grown up! Erm, hang on, no he’s not, he’s still really small and the only thing that’s changed is that he has actually managed to get worse! On this track he even makes Omarion look good. Well, OK, maybe that’s taking it a bit far…
