The Saturdays: 'Forever Is Over'

By
The Saturdays: 'Forever Is Over'
Released on Monday, Oct 5 2009

That they already feel like a fairly prominent fixture on the pop landscape – call them a largeish barn – is a testament to The Saturdays' work ethic. They've cranked out five singles, completed a 24-date UK tour and bagged lucrative endorsement deals with everyone from Samsung to, erm, Tampax. Now, less than a year since their debut came out, they're about to release That Difficult Second Album.

Lead single 'Forever Is Over' finds them shifting away from glossy electropop and taking a few stiletto steps into pop-rock territory. There's no denying that the big, beltalong chorus hits its target, and Una Healy shines on the guitary middle 8, but this lacks the spark that made their debut such an unexpected delight. Fortunately for them, there's better stuff on the album – if you don't believe us, track down the live versions of 'Wordshaker' and 'One Shot' on YouTube.
