Bananarama, "Wow" / 1987 Review by: paul johnson

This is thealbum that propelled Bananarama to to the next level, it produced hit single after hit single.

I Heard A Rumour, Love In the First Degree, I Cant Help It, I Want You Back and Nathan Jones all landed respectable chart positions. Wow was the peak of Bananarama's success.

It wasn't without it's casualties though, they recieved lots of critisism for being part of the stock, Aitken and waterman hit's factory, and Siobhan Fahey left the band to be replaced by Jacquie O Sullivan on the later 2 singles.

The album is classic Bananarama pop, but with the exeption of a few of the singles mentioned, is not an example of thier best.
