First of all, I love the title. It's silly, fun & very pop.
The cover should have been different, much brighter and more colourful.

The album should have been released the week after What About Us,
riding high off the No.1 success, the album could have easily been Top5 and then stuck around.

In terms of tracklisting and singles, I'm looking at this as if 30 Days was still released in May 2012,
so it still features here.

I do believe I saw somewhere that 'Disco Love' was added VERY late on to the album,
so it would not feature on this album as I'm looking at this as though the album was released in March 2013,
whereas I assume all the other songs were recorded in 2012, during filming for CHASING THE SATURDAYS.

AND I have re-instated Wildfire.

Tracklisting:

1. What About Us (feat. Sean Paul)
2. Wildfire
3. Lease My Love
4. Anywhere With You
5. Not Giving Up
6. Leave A Light On
7. 30 Days
8. Gentleman
9. Problem With Love
10. You Don't Have The Right
11. Don't Let Me Dance Alone
12. Somebody Else's Life


SINGLES!

So we have:

1. 30 Days (May 2012)
2. What About Us

the 3rd release should have been Wildfire, it's like a sequel to What About Us,
I think it could have been a decent hit & a good boost for the album's continued success.

the 4th single could have been 'Disco Love' as this would have been around October 2013.
It would have made a great Children In Need single and could have been put on a repackaged version of the album perhaps?

Single 5: Gentleman (Jan 2014 release) with a better video!

Single 6: Not Giving Up (April 2014) - I know 6 singles is a lot but it could have still been used to announce the Greatest Hits tour,
as with Frankie & Rochelle's pregnancies, a 2013 tour was never going to be possible.

Let Me know what you think!

The album would be so terrible without Disco Love.

Disco love is one of the best songs on the album so can't understand why anybody would omit the track from the album tracklist. Its a shame it wasn't the first single.

Is Disco Love the track the girls done with DJ Fresh? As he said he was working on a last minute track with the girls, and DL was last minute?

I agree Gentleman should come last. It's not a bad track but it just didn't suit being the single that followed their first (and only sad.gif ) number one.

I don't think Gentleman was ever single-worthy. I like it but I think it would have worked a lot more as an album track. If it couldn't go top ten as a pre-album single with capital and Radio 1 support, imagine how much it would have bombed as a post-album single.

I agree but the only reason I left it out was because had the album been released in March 2013, I don't think 'Disco Love' had been finished or recorded yet at that point as I heard it was a last minute addition to the album.

They should have released it in the autumn still, it would have made a great Children In Need single & then they could have done a re-release of the album,
maybe even with a bonus EP disc of Christmas songs?
I SHOULD BE THEIR MANAGER!

The only change I would have made would have been releasing Not Giving Up after What About Us. And probably getting another album cover.

If you change the release date, you either have to exclude Disco Love from the album or go too far away from the What About Us / Chasing The Saturdays success, so I really think they did the best they could with that.
