Advantages: Easy to listen to., Good mix of music.
This group of seven youngsters have become very successful over the past couple of years with the combination of pleasant pop music and a very popular television series. This album brings together a lot of their most famous songs, plus a few not so famous ones to produce an easy to listen to album.
There are 15 tracks on this album and these are:
Don’t Stop Moving’.
This track seems to epitomise a lot of what S Club 7 has come to represent. A good, easy to listen to tune, that has a good rhythm that encourages people to sing along or to get up and dance. This fast moving number has the whole group singing together and some interesting electronic distortion effects on their voices. This song was a big number hit for the group.
Show Me Your Colours.
This slower track is very pleasant to listen to, with a lot of clever acoustic guitar accompaniment, it is very relaxing. Rachel sings the lead vocals and this gives a lot of feeling to this track as she has such a passionate voice. The slow gentle start to this track leads into a powerful performance.
This softer sound has a very sunny, bright sound to it that seems to make you think of sunshine and happiness. This tune was used as the theme music at the start of each of their television programmes for the Hollywood 7 series. This track just wants you relax and smile to a very jolly little song.
Have You Ever.
This slower track has lead vocals by Jo and her powerful voice really does make this a very powerful ballad. This track was also used on the Hollywood 7 series, as the closing music. It also raised a lot of money for charity as it became part of the Children in Need television appeal. The lyrics are a bit soppy and this is not a track to listen to if your love life has just fallen apart.
This smooth track is lead by Paul and is one that I had not heard before getting this album. It is a bit soppy and has a real sin
g-along quality to it, but not really one of my favourite tracks.
Boy Like You.
This track sounds more like a Britney Spears number than an S Club 7 tune. It has a funky beat that is very catchy and a very repetitive chorus. It is the shortest track on the album at just a few seconds over three minutes.
Jon sings this romantic song that is the title track of the album. This track seems to have an older feel to it and does not seem to have the freshness that most S Club 7 music has. I usually skip this track.
Dance Dance Dance.
This is a great dance track that really does make you want to get up and dance around. There is a “Saturday Night Fever” disco feel to this track. Night-clubs with glitter balls and packed dance floors come to mind as you listen to Hannah leading this very funky track. An excellent dance tune.
This faster tune brings out some of the individual voices of the group. The seven members of the group – Bradley, Hannah, Jo, Jon, Paul, Rachel and Tina, all have good voices and on this track they have the chance to show off their individual talents.
On this track S Club 7 have entered the electronic music world with a very unusual keyboard accompaniment. Tina leads this track which at first I didn’t like, but it does really grow on you after a few listens.
There is a definite Latino start to this track with a Spanish guitar beginning, but then the track seems very mixed with all different sounds, that to me don’t seem to work very well. I think Bradley was trying to over impress with this song, that just does not seem to come together.
This track brings back the smooth harmonies of the group and the sunshine feeling that a lot of S Club 7 music portrays. It always amazes me how many times the group can mention it’s own name in its music and this track is no
exception with quite a few “S Club 7” phrases thrown into the lyrics.
I Will Find You.
This is a good “foot-tapping” track that actually has a bit of a story to the lyrics. This love song is sung between Jo and Bradley and their voices really compliment each other. This is one of my favourite tracks on the album.
Never Had A Dream Come True.
This is definitely the most moving track on the album. This beautiful ballad is sung with real feeling and passion. This is a great track for playing late at night, or for a slow dance at a party. It is very difficult not to sway along to this song. The violin backing to this track gives it great depth. This is my overall favourite track on the album.
Don’t Stop Movin’. (Radio Mix)
This extra track is a good way to finish the album, but I still prefer the original version at the start of the album.
This is a good album to listen to with a mix of disco dance tracks, soft romantic tunes and easy listening tracks.
My favourite tracks are definitely “Don’t Stop Moving”, “Show Me Your Colours”, “I Will Find You” and “Never Had A Dream Come True”.
There are only a couple of tracks I am not very bothered about - “Sunshine” and “Right Guy” are normally tracks that I miss out.
Overall this is a good album and even the worse tracks are not bad. For some easy to listen music I can certainly recommend this album.
