Real Life. Here We Go. Thank Me Daddy. Spotify Amazon. Jump Steve Mitchell. With slick production and great pace, this is unsurprisingly one of their biggest hits — but sadly missing out on a 1, settled for a 2 instead. Oddly, this song gave them the only UK 1 from this particular album. This time, Girls Aloud do at least give it a somewhat credible cover of it. The song switches over to the verse, taking a more sedate route, and sounding musically not a million miles away from something from Garbage.
This is followed by Big Brother , which is quite a nice gentle song. Hear Me Out follows with some wonderfully low bassy synths. This is a kind of electro ballad. At least the band members' own attempts at lyric-writing aren't as damaging. At worst they're merely cliche-laden, but at best their guileless, untutored approach results in something divertingly weird.
Thank Me Daddy usefully suggests Girls Aloud's pubescent listenership lie to their parents about their sexual exploits, while the impenetrable Big Brother could be about anything, up to and including the admittedly unlikely topic of sexual subservience to a totalitarian dictator.
Ultimately, you cannot escape the feeling that What Will the Neighbours Say? This is certainly an odd state of affairs, but it does not stop it being a great album: funny, clever, immediate, richly inventive.

It was released on three different CD single formats, as well as an additional 7" picture disc, making it Girls Aloud's first single available on vinyl. For the sleeve of the second CD, Artwork design group Form invented five fake magazines, one for each member, and used "Love Machine" lyrics as the headlines.
The disc included an exclusive previously unreleased b-side entitled "Androgynous Girls", which had been initially considered to be released as the lead single of the album. The maxi-CD also included a task-based game, created by design agency Holler. They came up with some of the song's lyrics by singing "nonsense lyrics" over a backing track, which eventually evolved into real songwords.
The instrumentation track was inspired by The Smiths, and created by Powell and Coler.What Will the Neighbours Say? is the second album by English-Irish all-female pop group Girls Aloud.
