ReceptionEdit

Critical responsesEdit

David Browne from Entertainment Weekly gave a positive review: Browne said in the review, "Anyone with a brain can see that Spiceworld is superficiality incarnate. But anyone with a heart will also see that it's very goofiness, its very crassness, makes it not only a better album than Spice, but the true essence d'Spice experience." As well as saying the album was better than their first album Spice, as Spiceworld "reflected the Girls image and personae" by "having dint of better songs, the Girls' stronger vocal personalities, and the insolence of the whole package itself." He gave an overall grading of B+.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine from Allmusic gave a positive review: Erlewine said "Spiceworld is a better record than its predecessor, boasting a more consistent (and catchier) set of songs and an intoxicating sense of fun." And then adding "Spiceworld consolidates and expands the group's style".
