As everyone knows they're responsible for Girls Aloud's past hits but what do we think of their recent efforts?

Little mix co-wrote pretend it's ok with them:

I love this, one of my favourites from the album.Best of their recent efforts but I am a little mix fan so I am biased.

Amelia Lily- you bring me joy- Boring, Repetitve and I don't like Amelias vocals on it.

Girls Aloud-something new: Hated it on first listen but it's growing on me, Love the start, shouting bit.A lot of energy, love the leaders of the pack bit.

I think they are still good at what they do and are capable of writing a decent song but are not as good as they used to be.

Xenomania definitely still have it. I think You Bring Me Joy is actually one of the best pop singles of recent years, Something New is perfect for launching their reunion and recent-ish efforts like All Fired Up really show they haven't lost anything over the past few years.

I think Xenomania were at their peak in the mid-noughties. They're still amazing, but they're just not as good as they used to be. Having said that, I think All Fired Up is one of their best songs ever.

And I love everything they've done with Florrie and Mini Viva. I also love the songs from Kylie's last album, quite a few of their Gossip/Alex Gardner songs, Mr Bright Eyes (Rebecca Ferguson), Get Ready Get Set (The Saturdays), Something New and You Bring Me Joy.

Yeah. Right up there with Lennon & McCartney, Bacharach & David.

The work they did with Gossip's recent album showed major growth on their productions. They need to branch out more with artists. They only seem to work with flop artists whose albums seem to be shelved or Girls aloud.
