Can you freaking believe it? Ghosts is a decade old! ohmy.gif


^full album


2007 was a fab year to be a Sugababes fan with Mutya, Siobhan and 3.0 all releasing in the same year.

Released on June 25th 2007, fun fact - the day after I turned 18, Siobhan's sophomore album peaked at 92 but received universal acclaim from critics. Remaining a masterpiece of pop a decade on, how do y'all feel about it?


Don't Give It Up - https://vimeo.com/23927204

So You Say



This whole era's aesthetic was utterly magnificent. Don't Give It Up's video in particular is just sublime. I really think she could rerelease this now (same videos) and it would fell current rather than a decade old. It was just so far ahead of it's time, it's a criminal shame this album was overlooked because it's spectacular.



My absolute favourites are Don't Give It Up, Ghosts, Medevac & 12 Bar Acid Blues. All 4 are proper 11/10 moments.

Both this and Revolution in me needed to be released about two years later... Revolution In Me 15 (!!!) years old next year. Time flies!

Ghosts could have been rereleased at any point over the past decade. It criminally underperformed.

With the name saga dragging on I say that they should rerelease it now while Siobhan is on Matt leave. It's not as if she actually needs to do anything with videos already filmed. A wee push for Don't Give It Up and tack a few unreleased tracks onto the album and boom suddenly the babes are semi-relevant again

Siobhan is my favorite female vocalist, like ever. She is magical.

12 Bar Acid Blues would be my karaoke jam if a) I could sing and b) even liked karaoke.
