Steps in 2020

Guardian: Another You, Another Me review

Posted on


The Guardian has reviewed Another You, Another Me and given it three out of five stars:

Always the members of Steps most in love with showbiz (Claire with music, H with the camera), H and Claire now want to be the Sonny and Cher of the plastic-pop generation. Staying true to the big Euro-pop sound of Steps, their debut sounds a little more grown-up without losing any of their freakish charm. DJ uses every trick in the disco handbook, from handclaps to synthed vocals, while All I Want Is You has “girlie anthem” stamped all over it.

But the party atmosphere falls flat due to too many ballads. Beauty and the Beast is boring, and Half a Heart reveals that while Claire can sing, H is more of a joining-in-on-the-harmonies kind of guy, while his attempts at being sultry sound as though he needs an inhaler. On the bizarre title track (written by Abba’s Benny and Bjorn), Claire hits a high note that only dogs will enjoy. But if you love pop you could do worse than this.
