BECAUSE WE'RE NOT ABOVE A BIT OF SHAMELESS ADVERTISING...

...we'd just like to point out that Girls Aloud's not-difficult-at-all second album, What Will The Neighbours Say?, is out today, and that if you care about pop, like, at all, you must buy it, at whatever cost. We paid £13.99 for it, which is more than we'd normally pay for a CD, but in terms of good causes this makes Band Aid 20 look like a whip-round for Margaret Thatcher's birthday present.

REASONS TO BUY WHAT WILL THE NEIGHBOURS SAY?:

1. Kimberley
2. Cheryl
3. Nicola
4. Nadine
5. Sarah
6. It's the best album of 2004. Fact.
7. Do you really want to be the only person who is unaware of the genius of 'Wake Me Up' until it gets released as a single? Exactly.
8. They co-wrote five tracks themselves so they are officially "proper" and "credible" now.
9. Kimberley and Nadine aren't fussed about Christmas, so they need something else to celebrate.
10. It features the definitive rendition of 'Here We Go'.
11. You get fourteen (14!) tracks for your money. That's ever so slightly less than £1 a track! And every penny from this album's royalties goes towards something really worthy, we expect.
12. Cheryl apparently refused to appear on the EastEnders Christmas Party. Now that is pop integrity.
13. We'll mock you if you don't.
14. The artwork on the inlay sleeve is truly stunning.

There you go. 14 tracks, 14 reasons to buy it. So, in the words of Gwen Stefani, "take a chance, you stupid ho". Erm, we mean, "what you waiting for?"

How unfair. Why don't labels realise that releasing albums a few days before my payday is just mean? I shall have to wait almost a week before I can sample the delights of the new album....

That's terrible. Try to persuade your boss to give you advance, or sell a pint of blood or something...

Ooooh, the selling blood idea could be a good one. But I've just realised that V's album is also out today... not sure I can spare that much blood.

And my boss is a vicious cold-hearted harpy so I don't think that'll happen.

I shall have to wait like a good boy.

Yeah, I only just realised about V too. I didn't see it in the shops this morning either. Hmmm, things don't look too good for the lovely V boys. Although hopefully they'll achieve something more respectable than the frankly embarrassing #46 placing attained by The 411.

It is a shame about V's (lack of) success. I am putting in my offer right now of a place for Aaron V to stay when the dream is over.

That's very altruistic of you. In fact, you've inspired me to do the same for Mark. Now we just need to find homes for the other three...

Well I suppose I might be able to find room for Leon as well... but only grudingly of course...
