Anyway the first album Spice was launched way back when I was but a shy little monkey (it was 1996 when they exploded on the airwaves and I was hooked), rushing to get my hands on their first album which starts of with the debut track 'Wannabe' which is a kick ass song which has rapping, catchy lyrics and such a great pop vibe it is just an awesome song, although I still to this day don't know what a ziga-zig ahh is
The next song 'Say You'll Be There' is a bit of a slower track and the second single off the album it has the girl power lyrics and I always loved how every girl got a part in the song unlike the Pussycat Dolls (see my review here
http://www.bitterandtwistedcomics.com/2/post/2013/03/monday-music-monkey-review30.html) this is just another really fun song.
The next track '2 Become 1' is a ballad and a great one at that it really showcases their singing abilities and they certainly could sing and with their sexy outfits and names Emma (Baby Spice), Mel C (Sporty Spice), Victoria (Posh Spice), Geri (Ginger Spice), and Mel B (Scary Spice) this is an awesome love song.
We then move onto the song 'Love Thing' which has more of a disco sound but is very much a spice girls sound. The rapping the girls do in this song is great. We then move onto 'Last Time Lover' which is a really sexy song especially Mel B's vocals in this song a the beat and guitars make this a highlight of this album
'Mama' is the next track and it is an emotional song about their mums' aww, it's so sweet without being sickening and it does have some beautiful string sections and it becomes a great ballad. It also shows of an emotional side to the Spice Girls which just adds to their appeal. 'Who Do You Think You Are' was the next track and it is awesome, upbeat, with a cool disco beat and really quick fire yet fun lyrics, an awesome song.
We then move onto 'Something Kinda Funny' has a more jazzy feel to the rest of the songs, very sexy vocals, catchy lyrics this song is an absolute cracker of a song and one of my favourites. Then we move onto one of the stand out tracks on the album, 'Naked' (and who didn't dream of seeing them all naked! I sure did when I was a little monkey, yes it was a great dream, which spice shall I have naked tonight anyway I digress). this song had a real maturity do it, it had a sexy, jazzy vibe to it and the Spice Girls sound great on this track which makes it even better. The lyrics on this track are awesome as well, just pure awesome!
The last track is 'If U Can't Dance' and it finishes what is a stand out debut album with great instruments, fantastic lyrics and great rapping by Scary Spice (Mel B. and Ginger Spice (Geri), a great high to finish a great album on. I am giving this 5 shots of whiskey out of 5, it is a killer album by five babes who brought sexy back to music, who defined girl power and spawned a million copy cats, who brought pop back from obscurity. Five sassy-sexy girls who made music fun again. If you haven't heard of them, get out from whatever cave you have been living in and take a trip to pop heaven with this album.
Well that's it for this week, till next time -
Peace out my bitches!
