Review

Not content with their housewife-friendly daytime TV talk show and its spin-off self-help books and tie-in DVDs, the gaggle of Loose Women now attempt to bring their trademark middle-aged brand of female empowerment to the music world with their first compilation, Loose Women: Girls' Night Out. Anyone who's sat through just one episode of their daily ITV roundtable discussion, a slightly more gossipy U.K. answer to The View, shouldn't be too surprised that the two-CD collection is firmly focused on the kind of commercial dance/pop tunes you'd hear at a typical hen-night party belting out during a particularly high-spirited karaoke session. Alongside ubiquitous girl-power anthems like Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," the Weather Girls' "It's Raining Men," and Labelle's "Lady Marmalade," there are dancefloor calls-to-arms like P!nk's "Get the Party Started," the Nolans' (whose youngest member, Coleen, is one of the show's most famous panelists) "I'm in the Mood for Dancing," and Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody"; man-grabbing anthems from Alexandra Burke ("Bad Boys"), Jamelia ("Superstar"), and Britney Spears ("Toxic"); and ubiquitous hairbrush singalongs such as Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out for a Hero," the Pointer Sisters' "Automatic," and Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now." Indeed, the only surprise about the track list is that nearly half of it is dedicated to the male species they constantly appear to enjoy bashing, with the likes of retro classics from Wham! ("Wake Me Up Before You Go Go"), the Jacksons ("Can You Feel It?"), and Rick Astley ("Never Gonna Give You Up") joining more contemporary fare from JLS ("Beat Again"), Cee Lo Green ("Forget You"), and Justin Timberlake ("Rock Your Body"). While Loose Women: Girls' Night Out would undeniably provide the perfect "getting ready" soundtrack for most of their two-million-plus TV audience, its track list is so ubiquitous it's hard to see why anyone wouldn't just turn on the local ultra-commercial radio station instead. ~ Jon O'Brien
