The third offering from the all-conquering Spices, and almost certainly the last given that they all seem far more interested in their solo careers now. That probably explains why so much of Forever is disappointingly lifeless, a succession of slick mid-tempo R'n'B grooves without any underlying soul. The production is as slick as ever, but all of that old Girl Power enthusiasm seems to have drained away- and with it most of the fun that used to redeem their fundamental tackiness. A sorry, half-hearted footnote to a truly remarkable pop phenomenon.
