Just to let everyone know, I lost my partner at the beginning of August, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back into this blog, whether it be new posts or reupping dead links. I will let you know when and if I am ready to come back to this blog, but for the moment it is unfortunately not a priority. Sorry.


If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Solid HarmoniE - Solid HarmoniE (1997)

Solid HarmoniE (aka SHE) were an even more obvious attempt at making another Spice Girls. They were Brits formed around the same time as the Spices and their music was pure pop. They were fortunate enough to be produced by many of the same people, including Max Martin and Kristian Lundin, responsible for the teen pop revolution and the success of acts like Robyn, Britney, 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys. The songs are good pop tunes, as would be expected. Despite the presence of these super producers, however, the girls didn't make much of an impact in North America. They had a few semi-hits in Britain and were hugely successful in the Netherlands, but North American audiences apparently only had room in their hearts for one British girl group. The girls did manage to record a follow up, but it was unfortunately shelved. Three of the members went on to pursue solo careers, while one, Mariama, briefly joined successful UK R&B girl group Honeyz. (Pay special attention to their reinterpretations of Hi-Five's "She's Playing Hard To Get" and trash pop lovers' fave Bardeux's "When We Kiss".)
