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! 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!
