"That's Right, I've Been Playing This CD ON CONSTANT REPEAT since I bought it. It's SO great! It blows the equally great debut out of the water!(Track reviews. 1 is worst. 5 is best.)Reach- 4.7 - This song is wonderful. It's filled with a positive message. Jon and Paul's solos are excellent from two not normally featured S Clubbers, and Jo's and Brad's a great as well. A Kickin' dance tune.Natural- 4.8 - The first time I heard this song I was like.. whoa! It's a VERY sweet and great song with Rachel taking the lead vocals. It kicks booty!I'll Keep Waiting- 4.4 - This song is awesome. Everyone can relate to it and Brad does a great job on the rap.Bring The House Down- 4.7 - That's what this rockin' song will do. Jo's sassy vocals make you want to "raise the roof and get on the floor". One of my faves.Best Friend- 4.7 - With the lead going Brad and the back-ups to Jon and Paul, the guys prove once again, just like on "Gonna Change The World" that they can have good songs too. You'll definately relate.All In Love Is Fair- 5.0 - This song can make you cry if you're having guy trouble (it's a song for the ladies). Jo takes lead and Brad does a rap at the end. One of my "fab four" from the album.Love Train- 4.4 - A very funky positive song with lead vocals by Paul. A good dance song.Cross My Heart- 5.0- I LOVE this song. Jo takes the vocals on this song (Jo's my fave girl S Clubber Jon's my fave guy, hehe). When you've lost a guy/girl or you're losing one, this song brings back memories. One of my "fab four"The Colour Of Blue- 4.7- Jo does a great job on this song singing about a guy who's a true blue guy. A great song for the beginning of a romance.I'll Be There- 5.0- Tina works her vocal magic on this song. I fell in love with it when I saw "Into The Unknown". A terrific love song. Another of my "fab four".Stand By You- 4.9- A song of devotion for your guy/girl. Hannah and Tina sing lead and it's an excellent song to listen to. I only wanna be with you... I only wanna be with you...Spiritual Love- 4.6- Bradley does the rap on this song and Jo sings back-up. It's a great song proving that love isn't all about sex and physical things. It can be spiritual.Lately- 4.6- Bradley actually SINGS! Ahh! The guys do back-up. It's a great song guys! You did it again!Never Had A Dream Come True- 5.0- I absolutely love this song. Jo sings the most beautiful vocals ever. Definately my favorite track. It's a song about lost love. Everyone will enjoy the more mature S Club.I hope you like it as much as I did!..."
Redefining Popular Music!!

"Their prestine image denotes another pop sensation like Christina or Britney, but it breaks away from the American pop tridition like the fore mentioned two. S Club 7 combines great vocals with a unique mix of R&B and BritPop, into something that stands out from the rest of the pack. The beautiful voice of the lovely Jo O'Mera compilments the melody of Never Had a Dream Come True, perfectly. The other 6 members of the band is also take turns to exhibit their skills. One notable song is Natural, which is very popular in Britain. It is a very memorable song with great lyrical work. I actually quite enjoyed the song Best Friends, on this CD. The tune is very R&B, and Bradley MacIntosh did a very good job with the vocals. All in love is fair combines both the melodic voice of Jo and Bradley together for a great rendition of the classic theme of broken hearts. Overall I though the CD was excellent and deserves much praise from the American music loving public. Everyone should buy it for it's musical merits."
What a group...I LOVE THEM!!!

"S Club 7 from day one has always been my favorite group of all times. I love the message that they try to send to people. "7" is a great album with new tracks to listen and love. Naturally there are songs not so much greater than others, but here's my review on a scale of 1 - 10...
Reach - Very catchy, but kinda long 8/10
Natural - I like the TV series version better than the album version but it's still a good song 9/10
I'll Keep Waiting - Nice relaxing beat, but the verses are a little cheesy (no disrespect Bradley) 7/10
Bring the House Down - Great song with an excellent chorus 10/10
Best Friend - I like the feel of this song. Great friendship song 9/10
All in Love Is Fair - Absolutely love this song!! Need I say more... 10/10
Love Train - Not one of my favorites, but catchy 6/10
Cross My Heart - Yet another excellent song with the R&B feel to it 10/10
The Colour of Blue - Good song, but very repetitive 6/10
I'll Be There - Love this song! Tina is my favorite forever!! 10/10
Two in a Million - When I first heard this song, I thought it should be used at a wedding or anniversary. Excellent choice of vocals and instruments. In other words...perfect 10/10
Lately - I love the remake of Stevie Wonder's song. Bradley really outdid himself 10/10
Never Had a Dream Come True - This song made me cry on the first listen. Any song that can make me cry definitely gets a full score 10/10
On average, i give "7" a 9. Keep up the great work!!"

3. I'll Keep Waiting- Its okay, but not one of my favourites 6/10

6. All in Love Is Fair- A great song, sung by Jo. A little bit different but really good 10/10
