The girls were essentially background singers. Although D.C. Lee got a featured vocal every now and then.

they might as well have called the other guy Jarobi, the band was all about the twins.
i was a fat black teenager tho, so no amount of cuffed jeans, bronzing lotion or blonde hair would give me the bros look that people were all imitating. now that i'm thinking about it, those cocksuckers were jersey shore before we even knew what it was...lol

i can't tell if the debut album aged well or not, since i have a biased soft spot for it.

Matt Goss' voice was very light so studio work helped it a lot LOL. The first 2 albums are pretty much late 80s pop fare with a good amount of cheesy moments but all in all, pretty good efforts IMO

Matt's voice has gotten a lot better on his recent solo projects

Peter Cox is underrated - very soulful voice on dude.

"Call Me"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PY5jB5p8GGo

"Eye To Eye" (straight '85 R&B)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bbn3TDOEzCE

"Goodbye Girl" (almost there)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbeWUrHYh_4

"We Close Our Eyes"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OifIwh53gY


They had their biggest US hits in 90-92, though:


"King Of Wishful Thinking"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ry4iwzS4Na0

"Faithful"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02QumJDiQZI

"What You Won't Do For Love"
