    Annie - Don’t Stop

    Re: Annie - "Don't Stop" + I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me It's the insistent throbbing synth with the melancholic vocals floating over it. Dare I say it feels "I Feel Love"-esque? (though not as good of course). It's my favourite track of 2008 so far. Agree that Anniemal is better than "Don't...

    Jessica Mauboy - Yours Forever

    I know Jessica Mauboy can sing, so I have NFI as to why the vocals sound overly autotuned. Flo-Rida's rap is superfluous and strongly reeks of "let's chuck an American rapper with some name recognition on so we can drum up some more sales". Generic R&B/Electro fare, but that's popular at the...

    Rachel Stevens

    Oh well, I'm sure there will be some other appropriately vacant pop moppet installed in her place to foist decent material on.

    Britney Spears - Circus

    It's an adequate club banger and will do good business, but I agree with those who find it a bit lacking. I think the vocals let it down - they're overly flat and don't seem to fit the track in places. Too much autotune? re: ranking of lead singles - what's with the under-ranking of ...Baby One...

    Who Used The Sample Of "Sitaution" Better: Heidi Montag Or The Saturdays?

    I like the keychange. Considering the sample is the only memorable thing about either track, I'd say they both used the sample quite well.

    General Heidi Montag Stuff Thread

    Barely - they're both lazy tracks which relies on the sample to make them somewhat memorable (good sample to use though).

    That "Pjanoo" track isn't quite right...

    This sounds like a Chicane reject with a quicker beat, but it gets the job done *tick of approval, though not enthusiastic*

    Digital downloads bad for chart?

    I like downloads - I can buy tracks without having to get the several remixes I don't even want or bodgy B-sides (yes, there are good B-sides, but in general, I find them more miss than hit). I don't understand why some people think downloads "distort" the chart. The charts are a sign of...

    "Say You'll Be There" - Spice Boys 5

    There could have been some snickerworthy moments if they sung their own vocals. However a bunch of guys half-arsedly miming to a couple of Spice Girls tracks is an utter waste of everybody's time. Why do people bother making this shit...

    Leona Lewis #1 in US iTunes

    Slightly bemused at all this talk about Leona not having personality - PR bullshit and our projected fantasies aside, neither do most other pop stars out there. I suppose they could hide Leona's lack of personality a bit better, but it seems nobody cares. A bit of truth never hurt anybody. I...

    The Veronicas - Hook Me Up Album Discussion

    Good news for the Veronicas in the Aussie charts this week - Hook Me Up the single shoots up to #1 (their first #1 hit), while Hook Me Up the album debuts at #2. I suppose I should go and get the album, considering I've seen it at quite reasonable prices and I do love the single a lot.

    Girls Aloud - Call The Shots (17th Single)

    The whole single has the stench of Atomic Kitten around it - kind of catchy, a bit cheesy and ultimately pointless. This does not mean it will flop commercially though - just look at Atomic Kitten's chart record. Nicola's Middle 8 part is great though, and the starry effect that accompanies it...

    Girls Aloud - Call The Shots (17th Single)

    Maybe we need an official Sugababes vs Girls Aloud thread to stop the same moronic off-topic postings happening in every thread. This reminds me of a SAW track, but it appears somebody forgot to include the hooks. It's "noice", but I was hoping for something a bit more catchy. Favourite part is...

    Delta Goodrem - Delta

    Shipped, not sold. Certifications are based on copies shipped to stores. We can only hope - anything to save us from the usual uptempo/slower ballad cycle. "In This Life" falls into the former.

    Sugababes - Change

    I was a bit underwhelmed by the live performance, but I suspect the studio version will sound quite good. I''ll wait and see on this one...

    Mandy Moore

    Yeah, very interested in listening to this one if it''s around - Mandy can actually sing. Rihanna''s flatness in the original still grates me to no end.

    Sugababes - Change

    As a sidenote, in terms of taking on generic pop, I thought "Hole In The Head" was a vastly superior effort.

    Sugababes - Change

    A good remix could make this into a dirty electro piece - the elements are there already. I suspect this one will grow on me like the "Push The Button" did. It is not particularly challenging, but it is catchy. The first couple of verses are a bit flat, but Heidi''s bridge saves the song from...

    Sugababes - Change

    "Obviously"? I much prefer "Freak Like Me". However, I think the Sugababes have an excellent record of lead singles from proper albums ("Easy" not so much) As for this one, the only thing I could really conclude from listening to the short clip is that the quality of the clip is really shit...

    James Blunt - 1973 (Inc the VIDEO!)

    At least there''s no hideous wailing. Fairly inoffensive, I think my mum would like it. Very listenable, but I prefer my music to be a bit more stimulating.
