This is the new upcoming album from the highly popular scouting for girls they have created a lot of publicity on this album including a competition in order to win signed copies of the album on there website.
The Album Cover This is the cover for the new album which is very brightly coloured in order to grab the attention of their target audience also it shows a girl standing on the Tv which is another way of portraying the name of the album. They have taken a very old style as the cover does not look glossy its just looks like a cover which has been sat on a shelf for years. This album cover helps to portray the genre of this band which is indie pop as it doesn’t show a picture of them looking at there best in order to create star publicity.
Everybody Wants to Be on TV received generally negative reviews, with Arwa Haider of Metro commenting:
"Everybody Wants To Be On TV is another charm offensive that's somehow easy to resist. Perhaps it's the repetitive themes, plodding tempos or clichéd observations. Their pop rock serenades don't even paint women in a particularly pretty light; they're invariably heartless ex-girlfriends, hussies or two-dimensional posh girls. Interestingly, they're open to all kinds of modern effects (including Auto-Tune on Little Miss Naughty) yet the music sounds opportunistic rather than adventurously creative. Their dogged song writing approach makes for some naggingly catchy choruses (Good Time Girl, On The Radio) but mostly this is the sound of a band dry-humping the mainstream."
However, Andrew Mueller of Uncut was more positive, commenting:
"It's easy to forget, listening to Scouting For Girls' second album, that the past 15 years have happened. Everybody Wants To Be On TV is note-perfect Britpop: jaunty tunes, strident accents, faintly superior sneering at the pastimes of lesser persons. This is fine, up to a point: This Ain't A Love Song and On The Radio will energise student discos as "Girls & Boys" once did. Unfortunately, Scouting For Girls occasionally meander out of their depth. Silly Song wanders the wrong side of the slender line dividing Snow Patrol from James Blunt.“
John Aizlewood of Q. May 2010. gave the album 4 stars, commenting:
"There are no curveballs, no experimental digressions, nothing other than 10 of Roy Stride's focused slabs of honed guitar pop, summed up by the first 26 seconds of opening track This Ain't A Love Song, where soaring keyboards explode into a chanted "na na na". Yet for all Stride's laddishness, this is a sophisticated album that never coasts or repeats itself. Making pop sound this effortless, this joyous, is no easy task. And SFG have more reason than most to lament the demise of the single, for there's 10 of them here. A joy."
