CD Reviews

Come back Siobhan, Sarah and Keren are talented!
William | United States | 05/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pop Life is an excellent album, especially Preacher Man, Long Train Running, and Only Your Love. The only thing I do not like about the album is that Jacqui O'Sullivan, I am sure she is a nice lady, but she never belonged in Bananarama. Keren Woodward and Sarah Dallin are so talented and beautiful. It would be so awesome if Siobhan Fahey reunited with them and made new albums as a trio the way it was meant to be, it would mean so much to fans around the world. The truth is Keren and Sarah alone make excellent albums, that last release Drama was the best work they have done ever. Pop Life is right up there too, it gets an A."
She's not your Sister anymore, Siobhan is Shakespears

"I so miss Siobhan Fahey on this lp. And you can see that the hole left behind wasn't just a voice but a writer. There are several remakes and remixes that are very good, but I don't know if all of them would have been on "Pop Life" had Fahey stayed.
But again, the songs (remakes or otherwise)& the vocals are very strong and they stay with you. 5 stars, though the 5th is flickering."
The girls' later CDs don't get a very good selection of bonu

"Both Pop Life and Please Yourself suffer from a really lame selection of bonus tracks. In actuality, they could have released probably 3 CDs for each disc to fit all the remixes that were spawned from these releases. Instead of getting some 'alternate 7" mixes' of the singles here, we could have been treated to the bevy of 12" mixes of "only your love", "preacher man", "long train runnin" and "trippin on your love." Not to mention, this reissue has removed the bonus track "Preacher Man (Ramabanana Alternative Mix)" that was on the original pressing of the CD!!! The only real surprise here is the long version of What Colour R The Skies Where U Live?"
