Product Description

The former Ginger Spice's step into the solo arena does an acceptable job of refashioning her into a "grownup" diva. Generally underdeveloped material doesn't help, but the thin-voiced Halliwell acquits herself well enough on some pop-funk numbers and when tweaking the sort of '60s high camp of which Robbie Williams has been so fond. EMI. 1999.

While hardly a masterpiece on the order of "Say You'll Be There," the former Ginger Spice's step into the solo arena does an acceptable job of refashioning her into a "grownup" diva. Generally underdeveloped material doesn't help, but the thin-voiced Halliwell acquits herself well enough on some pop-funk numbers and when tweaking the sort of '60s high camp of which Robbie Williams has been so fond. --Rickey Wright

This album, by far, surpassed my expectations of the former Ginger Spice. While she may not have the best singing voice, she makes up for it in the heart and soul she puts into this album (and after just listening to Melanie C's album, this is the big difference between the two, Mel C can sing, but she doesn't have any soul. Geri does). You can tell by listening that she really put her best effort in creating a good album. None of the songs sound like "filler songs", and instead they could all be single material. Honestly, this is one CD that you shouldn't pass up. Schizo-phonic has my vote as being one of the best albums of 1999 easily.

I'll admit, when she was Ginger Spice, she was my least favorite Spice Girl. I didn't think she was a very good singer, and I didn't like her clothes at all. But when I first heard "Look At Me," I was so surprised! I loved it! I bought the album as soon as I could, and I love almost every track. Even if you don't like her voice, her songs are all so catchy, like "Bag It Up" or sad and serious, like "Walkaway." A lot of the critics were way too harsh, in my opinion. Schizophonic is a great album-if you haven't bought it yet, you should.

So is Geri's first album is better than all the other solo albums by the other Spice Girls ? Yes it is. But unfortunately, its NOT better than the first two albums by the Spice Girls as a group (`Spice' and `Spice World'), but that's to be expected. Theres not a single song here that will be remembered in the same breath as `Wannabe' or `Say you'll be there' (or even `Stop' or `2 Become 1'), but then again Geri's style is different. The music here is actually very good, the production values are far better than the ones on Melanie C's solo effort (and MUCH better than Melanie B's `Hot'), but theres something missing. However, at the end of the album, you do realize that Geri is no flash in the pan, and that she can actually carve out a successful solo career if she wanted to. Lets go track by track (I've skipped the `fillers') :
1. Look at me : This was the first single release from the album and it did not go to No. 1. It is however, a very good song. The horn and use of trumpet get a bit overwhelming at times, and this is not a slick pop-beat song, but it works, and Geri's thoroughly enjoyable East London accent makes it worth sitting through.
2. Lift Me Up : This went to No. 1 in the UK when it was released as a single. Many of Geri's songs don't have a message at all, but its all good fun. I love the opening verse where she shows us what a good voice she has (`All the colors of the rainbow, going somewhere, baby like you and I'). She almost sounded like Barbra Streisand there !
3. Mi Chico Latino : The only Latin flavored song on the album is also one of the most enjoyable. Geri uses all of the usual Latin clichés the same way Gina G did (`la Vida', `dolce vita', etc.) but who cares as long as the song works? And it does. This was Geri's first UK No. 1.

I bought this disc while in the midst of my Geri (Ginger) Halliwell crush back when. Though I don't think "Schizophonic" was anyone's "Album Of the Year" when it came out, it is actually better than I expected. Some of the tracks lack greatness, and her voice was never her strong-point, but between the better half of the album and her delivery, it works. It succeeds in the same way the Spice Girls did, in being just fun and catchy pop, nothing more. My favorite songs are "Look At Me", "Lift Me Up", "Mi Chico Latino", and "Sometime". Overall, I don't think the music is quite as hot as she is herself, but it is rather spicey, and well worth the used price here.

Of all the Spice Girls members, Geri (aka: Ginger Spice) has always been my favourite, whether it be her looks, talent or just personality. When she left the group, I knew she had something up her sleeve. Well, sure enough, out come this wonderful debut album, "Schizophonic." Here is the track-by-track review:-
1) Look At Me: (1st single) With a funky beat and even funkier lyrics, this tune may seem a little awkward at first for some listeners, but after the second or third time, you'll laugh and sing right along with this moderately-fast tempo song.
2) Lift Me Up: (3rd single) My most favourite song from this album... in fact, probably of all time. When the first note is played, you will be automatically transported to a high mountain, watching a beautiful sunrise. The happy feel to this song is guaranteed to, like the title suggests, lift you up!
3) Walkaway: In her autobiography, Geri told that she wrote the first verse while she was hiding from the press during her post-Spice days. The mood and lyrics of this ballad tells of her struggling to walk proudly into her new life.
4) Mi Chico Latino: (2nd single) The latin feel of this club favourite is sure to light up any party or night out! Like a Ricky Martin fast song... only better!
5) Goodnight Kiss: An unusual song with a jazzy beat that speaks take it or leave it. Either you like this song, or you don't.
6) Bag It Up: (4th single) The perfect example of battle of the sexes. This sort-of continuation of "Who Do You Think You Are" has deadpan lyrics that screams "GIRL POWER"!
7) Sometime: Once again, either you like it, or you don't. The church organ and choral arrangements in the beginning of the song might turn some people off. However, it is a pretty good moderately paced ballad.
