A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that some of the lyrics on this album are sexually suggestive; on one occasion, they do get to the point of being slightly raunchy. But, most of the 15 songs celebrate love, friendship, relationships, passions, diversity, and expressing yourself through music and dancing. Only two of the 15 tracks are new.

What's the story?
The Spice Girls' GREATEST HITS album -- their first release in seven years -- should please fans of the newly reunited female pop group, compiling 13 of their most popular tunes and two new ones ("Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)" and "Voodoo"). The album combines their ballads featuring great harmonies and heartfelt lyrics ("Say You'll Be There," "2 Become 1," "Mama") to their irresistible dance tunes that blend disco with an edgy pop sound ("Wannabe," "Spice Up Your World," "Who Do You Think You Are").
Is it any good?
This collection is a reminder of how good the Girls "really really" were at the height of their career -- and their slightly more mature sound on this CD just amplifies their talent. Even the two new tracks, though not exactly standouts, fit in well with the rest; "Headlines," a love song, certainly won't disappoint fans who particularly enjoy the group's ballads.

Do you think the hype makes more people interested in the music -- or does it seem like overkill? Families can also discuss the messages conveyed in their songs. What are the songs about?
