Tears On the Dancefloor (Crying At the Disco Deluxe Edition)
Fifteen years is several lifetimes in pop. Fortunately for Steps, their pop was never beholden to vogueish trends—they’ve consistently dealt in the unashamedly feel-good. The band’s fifth album—and first non-festive effort since 2000’s Buzz—stays true to these values. “Story of a Heart” is a magisterial Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson orginal you’re amazed Steps haven’t recorded before now, “No More Tears on the Dancefloor” allows Lee and H a rare chance to shine, while “Scared of the Dark” might be a career-best single.
