Progood all round music appeal

Consweak links

Steps. Claire, H, Lee, Faye and Lisa are a household name particularly with anyone who has children and even some that do not! Now with a string of successful albums and singles under their belts, I finally get round to writing my opinion on Buzz the last album released. What is it about Steps...

“3rd time lucky”

published 10/05/2001

ProPlenty of sing-a-long pop music and for a change, ...

ConsA couple of weak tracks. No real complaints.

The first two albums from this manufactured pop outfit were both highly succesful selling millions of copies. However, personally i found them both slightly disappointing with way too many album fillers and only the singles really generating any quality pop. However, i'm pleased to report that...

“Buzz Off”

published 02/07/2001

ProSome good tracks, happy clappy music

ConsAll a bit forced, all too similar

Steps have been going for a few years now and seem to have been swamped or brushed aside by buy/girl bands who seem to get younger or have new gimmicks like being formed as part of A TV show. Their third album is Buzz and it followed on from what has been a strong period of hits including a...

ConsI cant think of any to tell the truth

This is a review on the new album Buzz!! It has been years since Steps burst onto the pop scene and it is now hard to believe that they are on their third long player, sold 2.8 mil albums, 3.3 mil singles, 500K in videos and performed to over 1 million people here in the UK alone, not bad for...

“What a Buzz”

published 11/11/2000

ProOne of the best pop albums of the year

Oh my god, where to begin...? Steps' 3rd album "Buzz" kicks off in true Steps style with their cover of Kylie Minogue's classic "Better The Devil You Know" which although not a patch on the original, it sets the album off to a great start. Next up we have "Stomp", the Chic-inspired #1 hit from...

Steps released their 3rd album at Christmas 2000. It kicks off with a great start, Better The Devil You Know. ‘Better The devil You Know’ was quite fast and energetic with a quite bouncy rhythm. Next was ‘Stomp’ which is every bodies favourite. Quite loud, strong and...

“the next step”

published 24/01/2001

ProMore dance, less ballads

ConsCan possibly sound quite samely in parts

I love steps, they are not afraid to make good cheesey eurodance that everyone loves to hate, and i love it. This is thier third album and quite possibly thier best yet. Whilst the second album came heavily loaded with ballads, this album follows the same route as the first, less drip and more...

ProValue for money, good to dance to.

ConsA couple of rubbish tracks.

Turn on that music Come on and groove Get off your seat and start to move. 'Better The Devil You Know' was one of Kylie's hits But when Steps had their turn, They wore devil kits. 'Summer of Love' is so upbeat It's one of their coolest songs If you don't buy this album Then you're sure to be...

“Truly buzzzzing album”

published 22/11/2000

ProFab songs

Consnone

Ok so I got this albuma month early (thank you marc!) and now it is still on continuous play on my cd player. The songs are all very different to the usual Steps poptastic offering, from pure dance to R&B/reggae and ballads. There are one or two weird songs on the album (such as turn around and...

Steps return with their third and arguably most accomplished album yet. After the more bubblegum pop based material of their first two albums, the biggest pop band in the UK produce a more mature, international feel to appeal to a wider audience. Whether this has been successful is another matter...

“Past their sell-by date?”

published 11/11/2000

ProThe 3 released singles rock

ConsThe other tracks leave much more to be desired

Perhaps I'm past my Steps liking days, or perhaps Steps are just past it, but this album failed to tickle my fancy in the same way the first two did. First i ought to point out that I don't actually own the album, but I have listened to all the songs on it. Second I ought to say that I love...

I used to criticise Steps too, although I agreed their tunes were catchy and boppy. Then I took two of my daughters to see them in concert and have been a fan ever since ! This group is actually very talented and they CAN sing - well, maybe not Lee... Their new album, Buzz, features four hit...

The 3rd album by Steps is a mixed offering, which is expected as it is a transistion album. The old material is still here, classics like Summer Of Love & Stomp keep the core fanbase happy but on this album each member pens their own track and they expand their material to other writers. Songs...

Steps release their third Album "BUZZ" and this has to be the best yet. Still using the steps style a new STEPS has emerged, one that cna produce different types of music. I am not saying that there is a song for everyone, but many people who didnt like steps have become fans of this new album...
