Really good, solid, 80s rock pop. Alone is an absolute belter and of course I’m listening to this album because the song popped up on Strictly Come Dancing at the weekend. What a tune! The rest of the album doesn’t quite stand up to such a high level, but it’s honestly not that far off. It’s just that recognisable rock from the decade of big hair and equally big riffs. Good job.

Wonderful Whitney is so good, you can’t go wrong with an album that starts with I Wanna Dance with Somebody. This has good pop vibes, Whitney’s incredible vocals, and a few songs that you know along with a couple that you probably don’t. It does feel like maybe it gets a bit commercial in the middle, some of those songs don’t stand out as well as they might, but there’s enough to like to make it a winner.

I knew more of these songs than I thought I was going to. They’re alright, good pop songs, sometimes catchy and they make you want to do that sway with a finger click thing. But it is cheesy, there’s no way around it. If you’re in the mood for some old school smiley pop, then this is exactly the right album.
