    How old were you back than?
    They took the world by storm, Wannabe was just E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E. It still sounds good

    CLASSIC!

    I was eight, and Spice was my first album ever! The Spice Girls got me into music, and I fully give them credit for that.

    My favourite on the album is easily Naked. What a TUNE, one of my all time favourite songs, so amazing and classy for the girls, it sounded nothing like their other material.

    I also loved Last Time Lover (the only song they never performed live), If U Can't Dance & Love Thing. I actually rated the album tracks over the singles cos they got overplayed.

    A classic pop album, which I do still listen to. Quite a varied album and not as 'poppy' as you might expect, with a few R&B influenced tracks (Something Kinda Funny, Naked, Last Time Lover) I wouldn't say there were any filler tracks on it, although the only one that comes close for me is 'Mama'.

    Back in 2000 I was 8 and i remember that Victoria's face scared me...




    But she's gorgeous of course!! I was too little back then... I don't remember their "Spice era" at all, I was 4-5 years old. But "Spice" was generally a great & fun album!

    LOVE this album, still play it.

    I was 8 when this came out, and it was my first ever album. It was amazing to see them on their reunion tour because I never got the chance first time around.

    I think every single single released was worthy, and everything left on the album deserved to be. Love Thing is amazing, but every great album needs a hidden album gem and this is theirs.

    I think Who Do You Think You Are is the best song on the album, and the Brits performance completely deserved it's award for best performance.

    Spicemania was huge back in 1996, and everyone and their grandma had a favourite Spice Girl. Mine was always Ginger: had to love those big boobs and huge voice! (speaking voice, naturally).

    I'm not into them these days, but they were my first idol ever, I was completely crazy for them! in 96/97 they were probably the only artist I would listen to, I was singing, dancing and buying anything related to them 24/7

    Last Time Lover is suuuuuch a good song, showed that they had some R&B roots long before Forever.

    'Last Time Lover' has a great beat - in fact quite a few songs on Spice were quite R&B influenced for a pure pop album.

    I don't think there's one filler track on this album - even the non-singles were very strong - 'Love Thing', 'Something Kinda Funny', 'Last Time Lover', 'If U Can't Dance' - all brilliant!

    I've fallen in love with Mama lately, I don't know what it is. I hated it when I was a kid cos it was too slow, but lately I just LOVE it. I much prefer the radio edit over the 5 minute version on Spice however. It's just so cute and it's amazing live.

    Who Do You Think You Are has grown on me too, I always liked it but now I love it. I love the horns!

    The Spice album would be flawless if not for the 5 minute Mama, if it was the radio version, the album would be completely 100% amazing - as I love all the singles, and the album tracks (Love Thing, Last Time Lover <3, Something Kinda Funny, Naked <333 and If U Can't Dance) are all absolutely superb.

    I also think Spice is better then Spiceworld, even though I love Spiceworld.

    (And Emma was always my fave SG. I loved her when I was a kid cos she was blonde like me and she was the youngest and she was Baby I still love her now, her solo music rocks )

    Didn't matter if you were straight, gay, male, female - everybody and their grandma had a copy of this album back in the day! I had Spice World too which was equally as good.

    People are too quick to slag them off these days. They forget just how good their brand of pop music was. Look just how quick their reunion tour sold out and how in demand the tickets were.

    Just for the record - Something Kinda Funny, Say You'll Be There, Naked & If U Can't Dance (which samples hip hop track The Humpty Dance) were my favourites.
    "Free me, FreE.M.I!" - sing it Joss!!

    OMG where have I been?!

    I like this album. My favourite after "Wannabe" is "Love Thing", I listen to it even now!

    My first album.

    Back in 1996, I always preferred the singles over the album tracks, which I guess is a common thing to do for a child.

    But now that I'm older, I can't really listen to songs like Wannabe and WDYTYA - although I appreciate everything they stood for when they were released.

    I like the album tracks a lot more now too. The album tracks seem more geared towards an older audience - not for children under 10. Last Time Lover and If U Can't Dance are my favourite album tracks.

    And yes in regards to Mama! It was always my least favourite single from the album, but recently, I think it is really nice.

    This album turned 15 today!

    I still love it and think it's a pop masterpiece, it deserved selling the 23 million copies it (more or less) sold worldwide for sure!

    Tell me about it, I'm 26! I've been listening to this album for more than half my life

    And I'm still a huge fan, they're still my favourite band which many people might find weird and embarrassing but I don't care, their music is still great to me and I hold such special memories linked to them I don't think I'd ever be able to not care about them!
