I liked the single, and I've always fancied her loads (I have a thing for awkward pale red heads just
ask our lass) may look into this a reckon!

I don't want to hate on someone else's taste(even though I come across like that, I'll try to work on it; what can I say? I'm an ass), nor do I want to stop someone else from checking this out. By all means, check this out. If you enjoy this, I'm happy for you.

So, I will not rate anything low. I will not rate Nickelback low as much as I despise them. I think it puts people off from coming to the site when they see Nickelback's albums rated like that. Personally, I find the whole "objectivity" rating on this site to do more harm than good. People troll rate albums to bring up their objectivity score, as if it matters?

I will give my own opinion, though, just as everyone else does, and I do try to put stuff in a bit of perspective. My ratings have been wiped once already, and it takes entirely too long for me to rate everything I've listened to. I'm 34 and I've seen thousands of movies and listened to a lot of stuff, so for the time being I'm concentrating on music that I consider a 5, at least within it's own genre, and there's still plenty more 5's to rate. Like Pop, for instance.

LOL what? Can you imagine someone thinking like that.

"Ohhh why, that sputnikmusic, I can't go there cause Nickelback is rated so gosh darn low and I love me some Nickelback. Boy howdy."

You can't come in and say "OH MAN HOW CAN U RATE THIS SO HIGH AND THEN RATE TOOL SO LOW"

and then say "I WILL NOT RATE ANYTHING LOW ALSO EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN OPINION"

or say "THERE ARE OBJECTIVELY BETTER ALBUMS THAN THIS IN THE POP GENRE"

and then say "THE CONCEPT OF OBJECTIVITY IS FLAWED"

Everyone has their own opinion but mine is 'educated' because apparently hearing a lot of albums automatically gives you a higher level of discernment

Are you serious? Do I REALLY need to listen to this? It's fair to say I have an appreciation of the pop genre, but this was so far off my radar.

In interviews I've read, she's already moving on to talk about a new album, almost as this has nothing to offer!

I guess I'll listen and report back...

Did you go back to those certain Girls Aloud forums and make a new thread and write, "THE VENGABUS IS COMING! TOLD YOU SO, BITCHES!" because the reaction/subsequent fallout would be quite spectacular.

Wait, there's such a thing as a Girl's Aloud forum and people still use it?

Anyway, nice review, but I just don't see myself liking this. But oh well, each to their own.

Valerius's points are valid, gotta say. I thought he was pretty much spot on for everything he said

While I agree that Butler's ratings can often appear esoteric and random at best and I find myself repeatedly shocked/dismayed at some of the seemingly very low ratings he's given out for albums that are otherwise considered by the majority of critics and fans alike as "classics" like certain Beatles or Metallica albums, there's no need to get so upset about someone else's interpretation of music. Just worry about your own.

I'm not much for pop usually but Sputnik has surprised me before and got me to check out stuff like Janelle Monae's last album, so I'll give this a shot.

"I distinctly remember an article introducing the band as 'the four sexiest women in British music (and the ginger one)'. How can that not hurt you? For years Roberts was treated as a spare wheel, as if she was only part of the band because they needed a fifth person and it didn't matter who it was. After years of suffering through being ignored, attacked, belittled, and patronized, she must have had a lot of pent-up emotions to let out on this album."

what?

Beat of My Drum really might be the best pop song of the year.

Once upon a time I pressed rewind
Two left feet, I had no beat
Baby in the corner learning quick
Keep up, keep up, keep up
Graduation take a bow
See how strong you've made me now
Two steppin' all over me, then cha cha cha cha
I'm in!

Oohh don't it make your heart go wow
Oohh how I've turned this whole thing round

L..O.....V..E
Dance to the beat of my drum
Dance to the beat of my drum

If this song is the best pop song of 2011, music is in a worst state of affairs than I ever considered. This woman can't dance, she can't write lyrics, she can barely sing, her beats are pretty simple, and her songs don't have many hooks. And any woman that insists on being half naked in her videos tells me she lacks integrity and talent.

Beat of My Drum is on the same level as Rebecca Black's Friday to me - a cheesy song without much talent, but at least Rebecca Black is a kid being herself, has potential as a singer, and has some decency.

Sorry, man, this is everything that is wrong with pop to me. Skilled musicians replaced by drum machines, meaningless lyrics, entertainers who can't dance, relying on videos and sex appeal to sell an album. Someone resurrect Michael Jackson to save pop if this is the best we can do. If this album is a 4, Lady Gaga's The Fame is an 8.

Hating on Rebecca Black seems to be the cool thing to do. Too bad I'm not cool. I think for myself. Rebecca is a kid that could do something one day. At least she's taking singing and dance lessons, something this chick seems to have skipped.

And The Fame is 2.5 to you, but this is 3.5? How?
