About me :
Pro The material from the US & Sweden and the new track Mars & Venus. Might have heard it before from other Jive acts but Steps are going in the right direction.
Cons Some of the ballads still sound like they are album fillers.
Quality and consistency of tracks
Cover / Inlay Design and Content
How does it compare to the artist's other releases

"3rd Album has it's moments of glory."

The 3rd album by Steps is a mixed offering, which is expected as it is a transistion album.

The old material is still here, classics like Summer Of Love & Stomp keep the core fanbase happy but on this album each member pens their own track and they expand their material to other writers.

Songs like the single, It's The Way You Make Me Feel, comes from Sweden with the writers behind hits from Britney Spears & Backstreet Boys. Songs like the title track, Buzzz and Happy Go Lucky come from the US with writers/producers Riprock 'n' Alex G who are known for their work with NSYNC and their excellent remix of Britney Spears' Oops! I Did It Again.

In more detail I will talk about the new track which is included on the US release which was released in July 2001:

Mars & Venus (We Fall In Love Again)
Written by: Dane DeViller/Sean Hossein/Jorgen Elofsson/Andy Goldmark

This song has to be one of the best midtempo songs Steps have done to date. It is not too disimilar to Hear'Say's Pure & Simple - Mars & Venus is slower than that though - the song has lead vocals from Faye and it is sung very well indeed. The song is also produced excellently. Strangly though the song is written by Elofsson (It's The Way You Make Me Feel) and Goldmark (Buzz, Happy Go Lucky) which is the first time I've seen the ex-cherion and a member of US Riprock 'n' Alex G do a song together. Perhaps there will be more of this in the future. I give this song a 9/10 it is really good.
