"Girl Thing" is the self-titled debut album of a band that's making waves all over Europe and the UK. The girls are fresh and talented, and record producers speculate that they could dominate the European dance charts in the near future.
Although this boast appears to be corroborated with some hard-core statistics, the band's collective style isn't really novel to their genre. An effective antidote for a dull evening, most of the tracks are perky and entertaining. Songs like "Last One Standing" and "Wake Up" pay homage to the true party spirit, while others unintentionally induce a feeling of déjà vu.
The band's punchy and succulent style is an adaptation of other pop techniques and modern musicianship. The resultant cocktail is fit for universal consumption and would make a positive addition to anyone's collection.This article was first published on 17 Jan 2001.
