H & Claire
Released: 6th May 2002.
This week sees no less than three former Steps members on duets. First up are H & Claire, who have chosen to reform as a duo following the demise of the group. They were the good pop vibe of Steps, and are therefore producing much of the same - only sadly not at the same quality as they did as a five-piece. "DJ" doesn't really have any strong vocals, as much of them are rather lost behind the production. Whilst they do have the personality to keep up the Steps vibe, they are sorely missing their best singer.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that this was going to be like Steps' old stuff. Oh wait, it >is like Steps' old stuff. Hence my utter dislike for it. I really don't see the point in leaving a HUGELY successful group, just to copy what they did before. This is the same old trite, passed through a filter of rubbish and worse still.
