getting in on the spice girls act: i am just so glad that the girls only sold 71,000 copies of their godawful album in the uk. it strikes me that they’re doing even worse in the us, but it’s always hard to tell until you get the billboard charts, because sometimes you’ll be surprised. i’m not betting on it, though. every review has been negative, and it’s been so long – why buy yesterday’s pop when you can wait for backstreet boys?

i actually listened to it because it was in a new music listening booth, and it just wasn’t doable. very dull, very derivative-in-a-bad-sense. it sounded like four janet jacksons without any of the limited production charms her songs have. and that, my friends, is why absolute rubbish like westlife can beat them. can someone call geri and ask her to come back?
