We gave it a C

Sporty Spice’s solo debut tries to prove she’s no talentless tool of the Spice grinder. Unfortunately, Northern Star shines little light on who she actually IS. William Orbit and Craig Armstrong dress her up in techno. TLC’s Left Eye lets her try R&B. Rick Rubin helps her fake alt-rock. Mel’s not a bad singer, but ”Star”’s still nothing more than slick pop product.
