Damage : So What If I

If there’s anything worse than a straightforward boyband, it’s a boyband who believe the term couldn’t possibly apply to them. Damage appear to think that, because they can harmonise without the help of a million-dollar studio and choose to wear twisted Levi’s rather than pristine white suits, they’re somehow superior to their more unashamed, poppier peers. Here’s a newsflash. They’re not. ‘So What If I’ is yet another helping of bland, sentimental pop masquerading as R&B with a tinny, over-produced sound, lyrics that say nothing and an over-generous helping of strings. In their head, Damage are The Commodores. To the rest of us, they remain that band with

the bloke who goes out with Emma Bunton.
