5.0 out of 5 stars Rachel Rox! August 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge fan of S Club so I love Rachel solo. Heres what I thouht of the album.

1. Some Girls 5/5

GREAT track, its really 80's but really fun and dancey.

2. Sweet Dreams My La Ex 5/5

I love this song, its a good song to dance to and really sexy.

3. Funky Dory 4/5

I like this song a lot, its a bit different thatn rachels other singles and its a bit slower but its still great.

4. Fools 4/5

this is a cool song, it has a different beat that you don't hear much and is a nice change from most music.

5. Breathe In Breathe Out 5/5

this is a slower song and sort of relaxing . it is a great song!

6. Glide 4/5

this song is quite fast paced and a fun song!

7. Heaven Has To Wait 5/5

This is one of my favorite songs on the album. it is slow and shows rachels talent.

8. More, More, More 5/5

I LOVE this song, it is a fun dancey song and is great to listen to anytime.

9. Blue Afternoon 4/5

This song sounds a bit like elevator music but is good for you if you like mellow music.

10. I Got The Money 3/5

This song isnt the best and can get a bit annoying if you listen to it too much but it has really good lyrics.

11. Little Secret 5/5

I like how this song is sexy and has a good beat!

12. Solid 4/5

this song has a good beat and is a happy kind of song.

13. Silk 5/5

this is a really sexy song, it has some differnt sounds to it also!

Most of these songs are mellow, sexy and dancey on this album, if you like that type of music this album is for you. Also if you like artists like marron 5, you'll probably like this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop Princess Overview August 16, 2004
By C. Lamz
Format:Audio CD
After almost 5 years of S Club (7), the group breaks up and from it rises pop star Rachel Stevens with a brilliant debut album. Funky Dory is great for all music fans with different genres of music.

1. Some Girls - a great first track, really gets the album going. With Richard X writing and producing this great song, Rachel manages to get to #2 on the UK charts. Some Girls is really the pop anthem song of the summer. Very catchy and great to dance to. 10/10

2. Sweet Dreams My LA Ex - Rachel's first single, also go to #2 in the UK charts. This song is truly a gem, written by Cathy Dennis, the songwriter behind Kylie Minogue, S Club, S Club 8 and Britney Spears' Toxic. Sweet Dreams truly is a dream. 10/10

3. Funky Dory (Single Version) - Yes that's right, this is the single version of Funky Dory. Some trivial info for you, FD's guitar was taken from David Bowie's Hunky Dory. Interesting word play. Anyways, being the title track of the album, this song is great, has almost a latin flavor to it. Unfortunately, this song is mid-tempo, not the best to dance to. 9/10

4. Fools - Woo hoo! Let's get this party started. This song is one of my favorites, with a sound that makes you wanna dance. It has a sound that makes you think there should be a line dance for it. This track has a different vibe than all the others, truly a gem. 11/10

5. Breathe In Breathe Out (Swat-team Version) - This version of Breathe In Breathe Out was originally planned to be released as Rach's 3rd single, but was swapped for Some Girls. This song was supposedly said to sound S Club-y but I don't think so at all. True, she does go back to her roots, but if anything, this is Rachel at her best. A power ballad that's lyrics shine. 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Rachel is HOT! February 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album, by former group S Club 7, has gone solo and she has proved that she can do just that!! She's great and she can go ALONG way by herself. The debut album "Funky Dory!" is great on it's own!! I haven't bought it but have downloaded the album and this is one album I will have to buy when it is avaible in the US! Rachel's voice is HOT and she's like an angel! All the song's on this album is HOT and you need to buy it or you are soo crazy! Go Rachel!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funky Dory Special Edition February 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is great all the way through. It is sophisticated, catchy, and diverse in its tracks. My personal favorites are "Some Girls", "Sweet Dreams My L.A. Ex." (written by Cathy Dennis who also wrote Britney Spear's "Toxic" and Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out of My Head"), "Funky Dory", "Breathe In, Breate Out"-Swat Team Mix, and "Little Secret". Rachel Stevens proves that pop is art. Definatley worth the money to ship from the UK. Be on the lookout for her sophomore release sometime 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite solo debut by Miss Stevens January 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Rachel Stevens, Ex S - Club Member just delivered to us a Pop Masterpiece called "Funky Dory", which include a lot of catchy songs, delicious beats and seductive lyrics.

Rachel is still growing in many ways. Since she left the massive "S Club", she has a more mature, fresh & cosmopolitan sound, making her the ideal pop icon.

Also, every song on "Funky Dory" has a 'special something' that keeps you hooked to the album.

Let's review the album tracks:

1. Some Girls: The Sport Relief's single of 2004, "Some Girls" it's an electro flavoured track ala Goldfrapp's "Strict Machine" -which exploded on the USA dance chart a couple of months ago-, easily one of the best tracks of the year !

2. Sweet Dreams (My LA EX): The Lead Single of the album, It has a very acoustic sound to it. Produced by Cathy Dennis, the song has an unique style and *obviously* the mainstream audience liked it - My LA EX peaked at Number 2 in the UK.

3. Funky Dory: Fabulous track, which has an original sound & strangely catchy lyrics - The title track was the 2nd Single from the Album, but it was sadly overlooked by the UK public back in December 2003 =(

4. Fools: Great song - It will stay in your mind for a while, you have been warned!. Again, Rachel is delivering to us an acoustic pop song. This one was also included on Disney's 'The Princess Diaries 2' soundtrack, but with 'less seductive' lyrics

5. Breathe In, Breathe Out: Fresh & uplifting track, perfect for a sunny day because of it's happy lyrics & strings, "Breathe In, Breathe Out" is a standout of the album and shines with it's own light

7. Glide: Exquisite Song, "Glide" it's one of my favorites from "Funky Dory".

I haven't liked a whole album this much since Liz Phair's WhipSmart. If you need to catagorize her, she's kind-of a mix between Sheryl Crow and Cathy Dennis. Read more
