Spice Girls

Random thought but... they had the right 'S' font for that lyric video but the wrong 'S' font for the 'Spice' album re-release. Odd.

Their official store uses the original font now and it's been used here and there on social media. I think someone mentioned awhile back that they don't have the license to use it on commercial products

This is from the press release - is this the "brand new message from the Girls"?

The band say, “The ‘Spiceworld’ era was such a fun time for us; we’d just had a number one album with Spice, we were travelling all over the world and meeting our amazing fans, we released our second album AND we had our very own movie! Who would’ve thought it? It’s crazy to think that 25 years have passed.”

The way they couldn't even bother writing individual messages this time

The way @spicegirlsrewind's instagram stories have gotten me more excited for this release than anything the girls official pages have done... I love their page, and (if I'm thinking of the right person) they should be an inspiration to the label beyond just using their retouched scans.

They only use it now because a kind soul provided them with it, as well as many of the imagery they have been using.
 
Who else has been blasting Step to Me all night?

Mel Bs rap is so amazing. How she went from delivering raps like this to the ones that sit on Forever is mind blowing. This is so natural in its flow, the Right Back at Ya and Weekend Love ones are forced.
 
I'll most probably get all of the vinyls, 2CD and cassette, but I won't be in such a rush to get them if I'm honest.
I'm happy they are celebrating the 25th anniversary, but there is something missing if that makes sense. I was so geared up for this, as it's my favourite album, but it's just feeling a bit lacklustre. I'm fine with the tracklisting, but just that. Not amazed, or excited to hear new things.

I'd love a proper live album with the whole Spiceworld 98 tour, a couple of new shows we haven't seen before just to appease the need for something different.

Fingers crossed they actually do something good for 25 years of Spiceworld The Movie.
 
DYING at the fan claiming they've emailed Virgin asking them to cancel the release because the fans need to "grow up" and stop complaining.

Imagine being so far up their ass that you cannot even vent your frustration about something or people you adore.

I feel like they are treating the Step To Me release like they did with Feed Your Love. However it was never an unreleased track. It's just disappointing considering how half-assed everything has been with this release. It feels as if it's just an afterthought. Come on girls, get it together.

Also, I never really cared for Step To Me to begin with. I think it's a dud compared to the rest of the songs from the first two albums. Today was the first time I listened to it since its original release and I still don't care for it.
 
Since I don’t have any of the Pepsi CDs, there is a decent amount of material on the second disc that makes it worthwhile for me. It would have been nice to see something a bit more unexpected, but I’ll take the new Morales Remix Edit (5:52) as the big surprise. That makes three edits now under the same name including the 3:46 and 4:01 edits from promos.
 
Do you think they will actually do something for Forever? It wasn't really a huge album for them and I wouldn't imagine it would be of interest to anyone outside of the hardcore fanbase. Whereas, Spice and Spiceworld would have at least attracted a few casual listeners to purchase a copy.

And I can only imagine the horrific designs they would come with for that re-release...

I dont think they will because of the bad memories attached for Mel C, Geri not being there, the mediocre sales and the fact its 25th anniversary won't be until 2025 ( if next year they probably would've just done it to tie things up)
 
Forever reissue ? I think it depends on the 14:44 megamix: if it includes Holler or Lead the way, chances are very thin... why releasing a megamix with songs not included in albums you didn't reissue ?
btw, according to the press release, the unreleased tracks from #SW25 are:

4. Step To Me (Demo Version)*
5. Too Much (Live In Toronto, July 1998)*
6. Stop (Live In Madrid, March 1998)*
8. Spice Up Your Life (Live In Arnhem, March 1998)*
9. Viva Forever (Live In Manchester, April 1998)*
13. Viva Forever (John Themis Ambient Mix)*
15. Spice Girls Party Mix*

Maybe they got the wrong track lenght for the Morales remix and it's not an edit of an edit... still can't find it on Discogs, tho'.
The not-so-funny thing about the Stop (Morales remix) is that their official YouTube channel has the 7:26 version. Are they uploading the "new" edit naming it the same way or are they deleting the old one ?
