  1. **My first review** don't attack me S Club 7's very own Rachel Stevens' solo career should have made pop history. Taking after Kylie Minogue, she dove right into the trance-synth pop genre and mastered it on her second album. Her first attempt at solo music was her debut album, Funky Dory, a mediocre album that included the Britney reject stand-out track titled "Sweet Dreams My LA Ex". But Rachel Stevens didn't want to be mediocre, she would enlist the help of Richard X and Xenomania, the Music God's in charge of most of Girls Aloud and Kylie Minogue's catalogues to record new music. With the release of her new single "Some Girls", Rachel was finally standing out amongst the crowd and demonstrating her full potential. The track proved to be magic and peaked at #2 on the UK top charts. The single was included on a re-release of her debut album, Funky Dory, but was also added onto her second album, "Come and Get It" which would soon prove to be pop perfection start to finish. After the success of Some Girls, Rachel knew what direction she wanted to take her next album. "Come and Get It" was released on in October 2005. The album received critical acclaim and would eventually make it onto the "100 albums to listen to before you die" list. The album proved to be ahead of its time and inherently influential. Stevens would make the most confident tracks of her career with the dazzling "Crazy Boys", a song with a thumping synth beat and ****, bold, confident talk-sing vocals by Ms. Stevens where she declares "For you I'd wait forever, nobody does it better". With "I Will Be There", another album standout and what some argue is the best song on the album, Stevens sings over an 80's synth pop production that sounds incredibly magnetic and electric. Stand-out tracks like "I Will Be There", "Crazy Boys", "Funny How" make you feel like you are at a disco that is raining down glitter and diamonds. That is the imagery that comes to mind with most of "Come and Get It". Stevens slows it down on the album half-way through with the ballad "Nothing Good About This Goodbye", a breakup song where she laments her regrets for her ex-lover. It's another standout track and would have been a good final single off of the album instead of the up-beat pop track "I Said Never Again (But Here We are)" that performed mildly well on the UK charts peaking at #12 and had a cute music video to go along with it. "I Said Never Again" is one of the album's more generic tracks and I can understand why they released it as a single but the album tracks are loads more interesting and magical than the latter. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the album underperformed and debuted at #28 on the UK charts. Rachel released her last single from the album, "I Said Never Again (But Here We Are)" in October 2005 and she was never heard from again in the music realm... which is an utter damn shame. The album was revolutionary and influenced albums like "Dignity" by Hilary Duff, "X" and "Aphrodite" by Kylie Minogue, and in my opinion, you an hear it's sounds replicated and mastered on "Heaven On Earth" from Britney's Blackout. If you haven't listened to Come and Get It by Rachel Stevens, I highly suggest adding the album and giving it a listen from start to finish. You will not regret it. STAND OUT TRACKS TO LISTEN TO: So Good Crazy Boys I Will Be There Nothing Good About This Goodbye Some Girls Funny How Dumb Dumb

  3. I'm literally so uninterested in current mainstream popstars, most of them don't have a real distinctive artistic identity, every new popstar out there is like a rehash of a previous one. Ava Max is like the disney/teen-idol version of Gaga Ariana is the teen-idol version of Mariah Normani is the boring version of Beyoncé Lizzo is the black version of Meghan Trainor, would people even care about her if she was skinny? Doja Cat is decent, Billie is aight There's no flavor, where is the spark ? am i just becoming old? I guess i'll just stick to Shoegaze and G-funk for now
  4. I by no means I want to attack Max (Schneider) personally, I have just been very curious about this for a while and am a little surprised no one seems to have drawn attention to it. MAX is a rising pop star who has had a few mild hits, including “Lights Down Low”. I genuinely do enjoy his music and he is obviously very talented but sometimes I question his motives regarding his target audience. He is known for his flamboyant, gender-bending outfits and makeup, he’s always playing PRIDE festivals across the country, and he frequently collaborates with LGBTQ+ artists (Kim Petras, Hayley Kiyoko) and even talks about meeting his current wife at a gay bar. I’m always happy to see a heterosexual, cisgender man standing up as an ally but at what point does it go from Allyship to Appropriation? I mean, Taylor Swift was all but ripped to shreds over her sudden allyship last year and was criticized for only speaking out in favor of LGBTQ+ rights when it benefitted her career but what about someone who has built a whole career on LGTBQ+ pandering? I by no means think that anything he is doing is necessarily detrimental to the community, but I believe it’s safe to say that he certainly profits off of a community that he is not a part of. Maybe I am in the wrong here, but something just doesn’t sit right with me, as a proud gay man, seeing a cis, hetero male profiting from gay culture. Anyone else have thoughts?
  5. In 2011 Kylie (the only one that matters) Minogue, went on tour with one of the most spectacular and well received shows of the last decade. It had a high-scale production, beautiful costumes, magnificent props, live vocals, great stage presence and still she remains one of the most humble, genuine, unproblematic and underrated pop divas in the scene. At 43 years old she was capable of putting on a great show, with a strong concept (Greek and Roman mythology), thirty water jets, a tilted platform, Dolce & Gabbana outfits, dancers and aerial performers. I hope I'm not giving you new information and just refreshing memories, but if this wasn't the case, I'll link down some pics, highlight performances and the full show, so you can enjoy. Also, stream Kylie's Aphrodite album for good luck and clear skin, xoxo
  6. PLAY ME - Harrison Barnes Hey guys... My friend Harrison Barnes released his first song and video yesterday..entitled PLAY ME Harrison is a huge Britney fan as you will see & the video is inspired by BOMT and the show Pen15 on Hulu.
