Some of their covers are good, some are not as good. I really like the Punkstar remixes that are on their EP's... Their cover of Go West was not needed at all :shock:
Latest Remix: Domino Dancing ^^

They are (and sound) awful. Besides, it's just a premanufacturated "band". In "A life in pop" they are interviewed and you can feel that they just say what they were told, they are not even fans of the PSB.

Of course they can't be new PSB's. so it's very silly comparing them with the original.

I really like their version of I'm Not Scared - it's even more "Euro" than the original. :up:

The production of their tracks is really nice, but as soon as they open their mouths, I start disliking them.

Agree totally with both points. Her voice gets a bit irritating after a while.

Well, they do say that imitation is the purest form of flattery. Especially when it is well done. In this instance, it is.
