Released: 26th May 2003.
Abs made a clever move back in the summer of last year by releasing the catchy "What You Got". However, it was not a clever move to wait nine months before following it up. Eventually, he's come back with this short but sweet, Motown-influenced track, "Stop Sign". Admittedly, it's not as good as the debut. His vocals do still appear weak, and most people have forgotten who he is by now. This second single from his debut solo album "Abstract Theory" should see him secure another Top 10 hit though, and make him the unlikely solo success of Five.
Oh dear, this must be the "Stop Sign" of his career he's seeing. Let's face it, "What You Got" was a rather dull affair, and this second single is not much better. Abs had a really promising career ahead of him in Five, but he's thrown all that away by releasing solo material with nothing to really shout about. Expect this one to be his first single - solo or otherwise - to miss the Top 10 entirely, and deservedly so.
