Nigh on 20 years after their last hit, Bananarama - the former trio now down to duo Sara Dullin and Keren Woodward - release their long-awaited comeback album. Well, presumably someone's been waiting a long time for it, and they've made all this effort to comeback after all, so...
Surprise surprise, the patience will have paid off, more or less, for when all's said, done and listened to Drama is actually not a bad record. Thoroughly modern pop, replete with breathless vocals, minor key meanderings and more hooks than a fishing festival could make this a comeback to be proud of.
Stand out tracks include Waterfall, Don't Step On My Groove - reminiscent of many an original Bananarama hit - and the trancey Feel For You.Highlights for fans wanting to get stuck back into the old material will doubtless be the Solasso Mix of Really Saying Something and the Marc Almond Hi NRG Showgirl's Remix of their 1986 hit, the Stock Aitken & Waterman-produced Venus.
