Their best album as a whole in my opinion. Too Much is my fave SGs song. While I think Spice had stronger singles it had lower lows. Ironically the worst song is Spice Up Your Life imo.

Sooo good.

Too bad they ended up with only 2 albums w 5 members.

And Forever was let down, after Spiice and Spiceworld.

Great album, can't decide which one I prefer more.
My favs:
- Spice Up Your Life
- Too Much
- VIVA FOREVER

The Lady is a Vamp must be one of the worst things I’ve ever heard among with If U can’t dance.

Viva Forever is with no doubt my favorite Spice song. It’s totally different from everything they’ve done and it’s beyond incomparable to anything else. Such a beautiful and unique song.

Never Give up on the good times should’ve been a single instead of the atrocious Move Over!

:o

These are quite literally, the biggest fan album favourites! The girls know it too - being the only albums tracks to feature as part of their reunion tour. Lyrically, TLIAV is one of the best songs they’ve written imo.

I agree completely. I think the writing is a lot stronger and a lot more consistent. I love how polished it is compared to the first album, making it one of the best pop albums imo (at the same time, I miss the rawness of the first album too).

their best album imo, the weakest is imo LIAV but it grows on me.
It has 2 of their best album tracks ever: Denying and Saturday Night Divas.
Too bad, b sides or promo singles like Outer Space Girls and Step To Me didnt make it to the album

Anybody has other photoshoot pics from the front of Spiceworld album cover? (The one when Mel C wore pink tank top), I cant find it, even after searching on google. Only 1 Geri shoot

This one is only half as good as ‘Spice’. Some of the album tracks feel like filler

I think all the album tracks on Spice sound like filler. Except Love Thing.

I just simply love everything about this era. Just look at that album cover already <33
As a whole, I think this album was a lot stronger than Spice and includes their two best singles as well (Viva Forever and Stop).

From the album tracks Denying is the best one, easily.

I agree. I think the music is better, the performances are stronger and they are very much their characters. I’d love to hear something unreleased from this era, but I’m not sure there’s much leftover considering it was written on the movie set :lol:

They are my 2 least favourite singles! I think that’s partly due to the group losing their cool factor by that point. When ‘Stop’ didn’t go to #1, I think more people were relieved rather than disappointed

This was better than Spice. Although this was a lot more pop sounding, it was a perfect album considering their status.

For me it’s not as good as the songs on the album, but I love it. It’s just missing that something on the chorus. I’m surprised they didn’t perform it on tour, considering their Spice World 1998 tour had a space theme, and the stage was basically them arriving on a spaceship :lol:
