Wonderland: Wonderland







Let the judge be judged: Westlife manager Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell’s former foil on The X Factor, has joined forces with Westlife’s Kian Egan to create a new Irish girl group. Goodness knows the poor tarnished Emerald Isle could do with some quality escapist pop right now, but Wonderland will not be the ones to provide it. Each singer sounds identical and the music plays it safe with big ballad pabulum of the dullest variety. Next please.
