🎵 How Good Are They Really 🎵 Girls Aloud

I think it’s quite forward thinking tbf

Xenomania are responsible for a lot of my favourite Sugababes stuff too so you won’t hear me say a bad word about them.

Sound of the underground is a stone cold banger. Other stuff sits between OK and pish. They’re no one true voice

Weird that I think Sugababes songs are generally much better

I think the idea isn’t really a bad one nor is it necessarily original. I’m sure there are other artists who’ve gone about songwriting like this. I just found the execution on GA songs I heard was more jarring, particularly that one.

And with the other stuff it just didn’t land at all.

different strokes I guess.

Best bit of Biology?

  • First bit (dirty brain)
  • Second bit (I got one Alabama return)
  • Third bit (A GIRL’S GOT TO ZIP IT UP)

More or less single handedly responsible for bringing the South Africans @Rarity, @xcheopis and co over to DiS, therefore they’re worthy of at least a 4.

They came here because of the MP’s previous postings, no? The original thread that Guido surfaced was about Girls Aloud.

HOLY SHIT Girls Aloud are the BEST like it’s not even close

think cheryl held them back and is wrongly described as the dimey-ist of these dimes, very sad.

ahhhh yes!

Like seriously who would have thought that some group of reality stars would click together to produce some of the sharpest, dirtiest pop hits of our generation? Hear’say had crashed and burned, Will Young was kinda ehhhh, I don’t even remember who won Pop Idol 2 that’s how important they were and then here come Girls Aloud and holy shit they blew everything up. Sound of the Underground felt so fresh and current and was a huge statement of intent and things only got better from there. You’ve got the bleakness of Life Got Cold, you’ve got the old-timey swing of Love Machine, you’ve got EVERY SINGLE FUCKING THING of Biology, you’ve got the heady bliss of Call The Shots, you’ve got the throwback pizazz of The Promise, and that’s not mentioning the deep dives you can get from their albums. It’s just complete greatness from start to finish. Girls Aloud defined a decade, they’re the best girl band of all time and it’s not even a contest.
