Various - The Girls
That Katy Perry, eh ? 'I Kissed a Girl' ?! I bet you did, love ! I don't know ... First whiff of fame and every starry-eyed starlet counting down their 15 minutes suddenly fesses up to having had 'an experience'. Mmm. I blame that Brett Anderson, me. All that "I'm a bisexual who's never had a homosexual experience" malarkey. Yeah right. And I'm an arctic explorer who's never been to the North Pole, mate. Thankfully, mis-remembered sapphic dalliances aside, this latest compilation built on the flimsiest of fancies (Hey - they're all, like, girls !) isn't so bad. The songs - all by girls - are mostly fine, rarely crap. Kinda surprising, it has to be said. The likes of Kelis, Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse, Estelle, Kelly Clarkson, Alphabeat and Girls Aloud get their big hits out. Skipping is reserved for the execrable 'Bitch' by Meredith Brooks, 'Crazy Chick' by Charlotte Church and tosh by the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae, Anastacia and Ida Maria amongst others. You can imagine, I'm sure. And who can resist the delightfully nutty Ms. Perry, whose spunky pop-rocking is essentially Pink but without the tiresome 'Don't mess with me' attitude. That said, what you get up to after a few too many tequilas should really remain your own business, love. There might be kids listening.
