      Very helpful




      The Almighty series are back with another blinder, or not! This album is a two disc set of dancefloor friendly covers and high energy happy music. There is one disc of unmixed music and then on the second disc, a delightful megamix, mixed by someone bloke called Dan Murphy who is apparently very big in Australia.

      We begin with a cover of Paris Hilton's 'Stars Are Blind.' A totally unnecessary cover, watery, vapid and lacking anything that would entice me up onto a dancefloor. The vocals are sufficient without having anything remarkable about them.

      Jackie O thinks she is a Pussycat Doll. She pulls off an average vocal, though the backing vocals worry me. They sound like men in drag trying to be the other five or six girls, the remix is bland and nowhere near as feisty as the original version. Then we're onto one of the most dreary records this century, Daniel Powter's 'Bad Day.' This remake is non expressive, lacklustre at every turn and when would you want to dance to a song where the lyrics are 'You had a bad day.' Never.

      Lisa Scott Lee appears and does a hideous version of Strike's 'U Sure Do.' It sounds flat and ghastly and is a very poor revamp. Slightly better is Danni Minogue's 'He's The Greatest Dancer' which benefits from a punchy disco twist and is one of the highlights of the second disc.

      Jackie O returns to slaughter the Scissor Sisters, a dubious cover of 'Filthy Gorgeous' might have a neat bassline but her vocal is crippling and makes my teeth go like they do when you scrape your fingers down a blackboard.

      This is a very poor album, save for one or two okay remixes. The rest is dire and the cover artwork is also bland. Save your ten quid.
