Review Summary: A compilation of S Club 7. Reflection period to the good days.

In the late Nineties, there was a young pop group emerging from Britain. They had their own show, "Miami 7", which first brought them attention from America. This show had opened the eyes to many in search of the next big thing. "S Club 7" had it all and encompassed all their elements into one simple package. They were poised to spread throughout suburban homes with their catchy pop. Simplistic yet extremely catchy songs that could move even the darkest metal head out there. They were hot, you couldn't turn the channel on your television without running into them.

Their image was very appealing to many, with good looks and the ability to make catchy music with a clean image and pop sensibilities. Spearheaded by Simon Fueller ,after just recently at the time, being fired from "Spice Girls" management. He had a vision to create the next big thing. He wanted a group of young beautiful people to create some energetic music that could appeal to the youth all over. He had passed this test with flying colors.

Jo O'Meara- Main singer, hot blonde
Tina Barrett-Hot Brunette
Paul Cattermole- White English Guy
Jon Lee- Wimpy White EnglishGuy
Rachel Stevens - Beauty
Bradley McIntosh- English guy
Hannah Spearrit- Another hot blonde, my favorite

From 1999 to 2003, S Club had released four chart topping albums. All filled with hits based off of the show. What did these kids have that made them so appealing? They had charisma, they had the look, they had it all to make commercial success. Early on, their sound revolved around simple pop anthems. High tempo pop rock with strong vocal performances from the band, led them to release many singles on the top of the charts, no matter where you looked, they were everywhere. Their sound could be classified as Bubblegum Pop. Danceable beats revolving around straight forward verses before giving in to booming choruses. Later though, their sound took a turn towards the dance and party scene. All the big hits can be found on this compilation. The ballad, "Never Had A Dream Come True" is one of the many highlights to be found. Emotional is the only word coming to mind to describe how this sounds, as Jo pours her heart through the verses, building up to the gang vocal chorus. Plenty of fan favorites here, "S Club Party", and especially "Two In A Million" never get old with age. It is amazing to think how simplicity can be used effectively to create such uplifting, moveable music. This compilation ends with the closer, “Say Goodbye”. The curtain call of one of Pop’s finest. Once again, Jo shines with her soothing voice. Singing is divided to each member as they put in their final word as a band. A grand performance here.

"S Club 7" may have left the world before their time was up, but fortunately released a final parting gift for those who remember the glory days of "S Club 7". Fans of the show and/or music should pick this up and add this piece to their collections.

Saying that something created by FOX FAMILY and something that was never as successful as you make it out to be nor anything beyond "I guess I'll let my little sister listen to this. I GUESS."
Seriously, there is absolutely nothing about this that is remarkable even in the loosest meaning.

I don't see why you guys are criticising him, I used to like S Club 7 when I was 9 years old. I did sort of grow out of them, and I haven't listened to them for over 8 years, but still a part of my history :P

Catchy isn't really enough to hold an album together. Want to know what else is catchy? Hepatitis C.
