4 stars out of 5

"Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin relive the heady 1980s, when the group stumbled into fame and treated it all as a joke"

They always had each other — meaning that the liberties which music businessmen might try to take with a lone, pretty, averagely talented girl trying to make it did not arise. Unlike so many stars, especially their close friend George Michael who they recall with great tenderness, there was never anything needy about them, and in show business that is no mean achievement.

Mark Wood, the cleverest man in the music industry, sums it up well:

“Friendship, intelligence, beauty, independence, drank everyone under the table, couldn’t be pushed around — not manufactured but gleefully embracing of all of pop music’s daftness and thrills.

Cheers to that!
