Bellefire - Say Something Anyway"Say Something Anyway" is the long-awaited return from Irish vocal harmony group Bellefire. Having hit the charts in 2001 with "Perfect Bliss", they were dropped after just two singles and lost a member along the way. Fast-forward to 2004, and things might finally be on the up for the trio. This Radio 2 friendly, unashamed pop song, grabs you from the start, and gets better with every listen. It would be nice to see them equal their Top 5 success in Ireland here in the UK, but I suspect we might have to wait a little longer. Let's just hope they don't give up and leave us waiting another three years!

Not many people remember Bellefire. They arrived ages ago and were set to be the next big thing - only that didn't happen and they vanished down the pop toilet. Now they're back, minus one member, with a very catchy new single. "Say Something Anyway" is a dramatic, summery pop tune, and although none of them are Mariah Careys in the vocal region, it's still a cute, bouncy song. This won't set the charts alight, nor will it save the Irish belles' career, but it's harmless, inoffensive pop, albeit with no punch.
