My Favourite Spice Girls Album

"Firstly - zero stars for the official Amazon review provided by Courtney Kemp - those bland criticisms could be equally directed at a million other albums as well...but I won't go on...
Now to "Forever" - it was my favourite Spice Girls album back then and it remains so today. While the first 2 albums were enjoyable and fun, "Forever" saw the Spice Girls attempting a more adult and sophisticated sound - one which I greatly enjoyed. Standout tracks for me include: "Holler", "Tell Me Why", "Weekend Love", "Oxygen" and "Goodbye" - in my opinion all better songs, and having greater emotional impact, than those on the first 2 albums. Why this album was not widely embraced by pop fans I don't really know but I for one loved it! And still do."

"i really wish geri didn't leave. seems like her departure put the remaining spice girls in a position where they didn't know what to do musically. this album tries a bit too hard--to be R&B. it's like these are imposters-not the same spice girls i knew and loved. you can change musically but IT HAS TO SOUND GOOD. maybe it's me but i feel that they even sound sad, mopy, and energy-less b/c Geri's not in the studio. they don't have that previous fun, spark and grit in their voices like on the previous 2 albums. i keep imagining that they were crying over geri and the future of the group right before they started recording the song i am listening to. there's nothing catchy or good! Holler is only ok. and like the Amazon review so rightly said, seems like they are stealing music from other people. the reviewer sums up this album perfectly when they say, this has all been heard before."
