Five : Let's Dance

Pretty storming comeback from the Band Currently Known As Three...

Five : Let's Dance

Or, more accurately, Three. Five are promoting their big comeback minus two members. Sean has glandular fever and Scott has just had a baby. That shows the kind of lack of professionalism you'd never see in Five's American counterparts.

Then again, perhaps that's Five's strongest point. They're your 100% '4 real' low budget, Spar's own brand approximation of a popular stateside boy-brand and they look like a team of spot welders. 'Let's Dance' shows the boys banging impatiently on the maturity button in a slightly sinister summer groove with vocoders aplenty. It's nowhere near the majesty of their epoch-defining 'If You're Getting Down' but then again, in this crazy pop universe, what is?
