Wow its been a while but I have to admit I was a huge fan of 911 all those years ago and although I never met them personally to speak I did see them on a few occaisions.
The 1st time was at fairfield hall in croydon and the second was when they use to sing at Butlins when I was working there in 2002.
Well back to the review of this album the singles that are on this are.
2.If You'd Only Love Me
3.A Little Bit More (One of my favourites a cover of leo sayer)
4.More Than A Woman
6.All I Want Is You (Radio Edit)
7.Party People... Friday Night (Jon Douglas Radio Edit)
8.The Day We Find Love (Radio Edit)
9.Don't Make Me Wait (This is a fab song and is my favourite )
10.How Do You Want Me To Love You?
12.A Night To Remember (some may remember this from the harvester advert)
13.Bodyshakin' (Radio Mix)(a very sexy video to this one)
14.The Journey (Radio Edit)(this is also on my favourite list)
911 were a popular Boyband and from what I remember they had alot of fans.
Colorblindfool - Review - Music - 911 - Greatest Hits & A Little Bit More... - Advantages: They can definately sing, and harmonize well, It's their last ever album, and a fine tribute to their career, The Journey has a very meaningful background - Disadvantages: Many of the songs are either typical pop tear jerkers or quite cheesy upbeat numbers
No - my copy isn't stolen!!! But this album sure has stolen my HEART! Right, ok, I'll stop now.......... When I saw that 911 didn't have any opinions I was flabberghasted!! I have been a HUGE fan of 911 ever since I MET them in Warrington on a night out YEARS ago, they were pissed, so was I, and they were also REALLY short. Sadly 911 have called it a day now, but not before releasing a "greatest hits" album for their devoted fans, called "Greatest hits & a little bit more" which contains all of their erm, greatest hits. the first track on the album is "Wonderland" which is a lesser known track by mere mortals (ie non 911 fans) but its brilliant all the same. The next track is "If you'd only love me" smooth grooves and if you're on the dancefloor hot moves! (sorry.... i'm REALLY sorry) A Little Bit More - I LOVE this song, so much that i've just put it on, its my favourite 911 song and i'd reccommend it to ALL.... More Than A Woman is the next track, this is a cover of Leo Sayers/the beegee's song, I can't remember which, it may be neither, its a famous single by 911 aswell, it could be seen as a major turning point for 911's career, roun the u bend. Private Number - i can't say anything about this as my cd player always skips when it hears it. All I Want Is You -Is the language in my review appropriate for a wide audience? Are my spelling and grammar good enough? If not, why not write reviews in Word then cut and paste? the rest of the album is amazingly crap, to be honest i HATE 911 and I HATED them when i met them, they all had S.M.S (Short man syndrome) which made them irritable and angry and not very nice. The alcohol didn't help their mood and made them even more arrogant. JOKE! Basically I have actually heard this album though as all my friends used to love 911 (until we met the
m of course) and I can honestly say that it is no different to any other of the nineties boy band pap that was so popular then (and sadly still is) this cd is just another product of the pseudo-individualisation of the music world. DO NOT buy it/ listen to it. BURN it. (in a fire, not onto a cd)
Since, I might be the first to put my opinion about 911, let me just say that thanks for putting this category within the music section. I've been so anxious to put up my opinion!! While writing this opinion, I am listening to their first and maybe even last album 'Greatest Hits, and just a little bit more.' The album, consists of 14 brilliant songs, as seen on the category. 911, wasn't a very popular band. The only reason for this is because they weren't around very long. My sister Lawrie, was absolutely mad about them, until they began to slope downhill, and being my sister, she made a new craze about the recent popular boy band sensation 'Westlife.' Some of the viewers of this opinion, may not have even heard of the band, (911) but no matter! :-) (I must admit that I find that 911, better that Westlife, because they have written there own songs. Some of you might disagree with me, others might agree. I'm not gonna try and start a conflict or anything. But this is my opinion.) I can't think of much more to say about 911 in general only because I haven't really paid much attention to their lives and personal interviews. From a recent glimpse of my comments to do with this opinion, I've decided to look on the web for more information about the album and the band 911. What I found was this... When the band members of 911, Lee Brennan, Spike Dawbarn and Jimmy Constable moved into a grotty flat in 1995 in Glasgow, when I was just 5 years old, they opened the first chapter of the story of one of the decades most successful and popular band. At the time however, only three people really believed that this story would one day include a a single chart - topping song, let alone enought to fill a brilliant Greatest Hits album. These three people, of course were Jimmy, Spike and Lee and their arrival of this collection less that five years later is perect proof, that their early faith w
as justified: With hard work, talent and a bit of luck dreams can come true. The album, was a complete success of course, isn't it a good job that they ahd believed in them selves, without it they would never had reached the top of the satirs to STARDOM!!!
