I don’t agree, but that’s just my opinion.

It’s like the people who bang on about their fave song from the new album in the week before it’s released.

Different strokes, eh?!
Of course, we're all different. I don't mind hearing people's opinions on the tracks before release. It just makes me a bit more excited to hear them usually.

I guess stuff like that, and the hints about the chart position prior to the announcement, could be in spoiler tags, to avoid people getting annoyed if they don't want to see them.

Yes, maybe that’s a good idea.

It’s funny, I always swear off this place in the weeks before a Steps release, but I last about five minutes haha.
 
The fact they are in the running for #1 is just...insane and makes me so proud to be a fan! Though I agree that this album feels like bonus tracks/b-sides for about half of it, we are still so lucky as a fanbase that we got two albums in two years. It's very easy to make an ultimate album by deleting the duds because the highs on both projects are true highs.

Also, if anyone is interested, did a very honest review of the album on the podcast!

Love how everyone is bumming the album when they think it could be #1.

Then when there's a hint that it hasn't got to #1 people slagging it off for being a collection of B-sides and demos and declaring they 'must do better next time'!
I don't see anyone doing that exclusively since there was a hint it wouldn't be #1. There's people on both sides of the fence in here, but even those of us that don't particularly love this album still want to support them.

I actually posted a few times since release that the album wasn't doing it for me and there's a bunch of songs that just blend together, without anything to make them special. That was my opinion on release day and it's still my opinion now.

However, I've enjoyed some of the extra tracks we've ended up with, and I've loved the fact that it turned into a good old fashioned chart battle.

I don’t usually listen to the chart show. Everyone on here seems to be saying 5pm album chart is announced, is it around 5pm that right? Don’t wanna listen to the whole chart show in full
