Album Review

Your stance on brother-sister duo Same Difference — the most "love them or hate them" pop act of recent times — will depend entirely on whether you think High School Musical is the best thing since sliced bread. Signed by Simon Cowell after finishing third in 2007's X Factor, Same Difference have been shrewdly positioned by the talent show supremo as the U.K.'s answer to the Disney franchise, in an attempt to score some of the tween audience that's been slightly neglected by British pop of late. Unashamedly inspired by the phenomenon, Pop follows its infectious, family-friendly formula down to a T. Not content with just covering biggest hit "Breaking Free," the duo also offer up lead single "We R One," borrowing its smiley, twinkly all-American sound to produce one of the catchiest songs of the year, while "Right Between the Eyes" sounds tailor-made for a Disney World stage show singalong. When they're not mimicking Zac Efron and company, they're attempting to re-create the unadulterated pure pop of the late '90s. "Let Me Be the One" is the kind of bouncy Hi-NRG dance-pop that Steps based a career on, while "Still Amazed" could be a Max Martin-penned ballad from an early Britney Spears album. With such hook-laden original material, it's a shame that half the album resorts to unimaginative cover versions. "Turn It into Love" is a pointless retread of a lesser-known Kylie Minogue track, while "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" is a rather too saccharine rendition of the Starship classic. And with no respite from the constant sugar-coated production, Pop becomes a little too repetitive and sickly to appreciate in its entirety. But both Sean and Sarah's enthusiasm is refreshing in such a cynical genre. Unlike the majority of similar acts, they appear to have a genuine love for the music they're making. Indeed, it's hard to see either of them going solo to form a rock band or become an R&B balladeer. Overall, Pop does exactly what it says on the tin. It will undoubtedly further antagonize their detractors who believe their bubblegum sound is too outdated, but will also certainly appeal to those who like their pop to inspire new dance routines. ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Love them!

Two hard working nice people having fun on a record, Now what's wrong with that? If you don't like it fine then go listen to something else... But if you do like fun dance around the living room music then you won't be disappointed. It's easy listening and they both sound good and like they're having fun, some people on here obviously don't appreciate some fun so slate them instead! But boo to them, Great album and worth buying to have a laugh to! A**

The Only 'Same Difference' is that they are a FLOP.

Let's be honest... Same Difference will not be around in one year's time. I can tell their future... They will have been dropped from their record label and then they will split. The next thing we know they will be working in supermarkets; never to be heard from again. We aren't in the 90s anymore, and I think these two need to reliease it. This will be their one and only album to ever come out. They are a true example of a complete flop and its time to come into reality. Life isn't full all smiles and corniness. In a few years, we will be seeing these guys, along with many other failures on the shelf. We are moving into a new technology age and this type of music is holding the world back. That's all I have to say.... 'Same Difference' need to cherish their small time of 'fame'.


This album is really really good, its pure POP, and that is what we have been missing since Steps ended years ago! WE R ONE Is a pure dancefloor classic LET ME BE THE ONE Is a great ballad, great vocals NOTHING'S GONNA STOP US NOW Is a fantastic cover ballad I NEED A HOUSE Is a great get up and dance song (prob their next single) BREAKING FREE Is as good as the high school musical version IF U CANT DANCE Sounds just like a great STEPS track ALL THE ROADS LEAD TO HEAVEN Is a great dance song BETTER LOVE ME Also sounds like a great STEPS dance song (MY FAVE) STARTS TO BEAT AGAIN is the only song that is not that good, but 1 out of 12 aint bad TURN IT INTO LOVE Is a great cover of KYLIE'S 88 hit, not as good, but will be a great single STILL AMAZED Is a fantastic ballad, great song SAME DIFFERENCE is just great pure pop, anyone who makes fun of it is just sad, its just fun music, if u dont like it, dont buy it, simple as that!!! I love it!!!


Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s

With their squeaky-clean image, relentlessly upbeat nature, and pure bubblegum pop sound, brother-and-sister duo the Same Difference became one of the most audience-dividing acts in The X Factor's history. Sean Smith, born in 1985, and sister Sarah, born in 1988, both left home at an early age to pursue their dream of performing. Sean appeared in several pantomimes and landed a job singing on cruise ships, while Sarah attended the Italia Conti Academy, where she finished her diploma. After regularly...
