Canadian Update, US Review, Australia News, Belgium Single
Firstly an update from yesterday, we got a little confused with the Canadian release of the album, infact the album is out now and has the same tracklisting as the US! Also why we are on a Canadian vibe pop over to YTV and vote for Steps! http://www.ytv.com/shows/ytvs_hit_list Thanks to Greg for sending in this, we missed this, it is from the US Chart people Billboard, and their review of Mars & Venus: STEPS Mars & Venus (We Fall In Love Again) (3:51) PRODUCERS: Dane DeViller and Sean Hosein WRITERS: D. DeViller, S. Hossein, J. Elofsson, and A. Goldmark PUBLISHERS: BMG Songs/Big Caboose/Littel Engine Entertainment, ASCAP: BMG Music Scandinavia/Zomba/Danianne, BMI Jive 42940 (CD Promo) Teen-targeted Brit foursome Steps managed to move some 200,000 copies of its 2000 debut, Step One, without benefit of radio exposure (aside from the increasingly influential Radio Disney). Like S Club 7, which scored with “Never Had A Dream Come True,” the group has beefed up, if not Americanized, its sound the second time around. In fact, “Mars & Venus (We Fall In Love Again)” is a track that’s not even found on the group’s second disc overseas, but it anchors the new U.S. set, Buzz. “Mars & Venus” skips along with a light hip-hop beat to a lyric that cleverly explains how opposites attract. The well-constructed chorus has the goods to make the grade at Top 40, if not AC, though the production is so low-key that it’s almost too subtle to make the leap from speakers to the hearts of pop fans. Still, there’s plenty of breakout potential on this album; our bets are on “It’s the Way You Make Me Feel.” – CT There we have it, again ITWYMMF is mentioned – Perhaps Jive do need a rethink. The Belgium release of Summer of Love / Here & Now has the same front as the UK H&N Single, tracklisting is: 1. Summer Of Love – 3.52 2. Here And Now – Soundtrade Mix – 3.28 3. Here And Now – Sleazesisters Anthem Mix – 7.51 4. Summer Of Love – W.I.P Remix – 6.38 Thanks to Pieter for that Information! Also thanks to Dave for this Australian news that Lisa & Claire promised in a recent Interview that if the release of Chain Reaction goes Top 10 (due early 2002 there) then they will tour Australia in Late 2002!
