It has been a long while since we hear from Roxette.  Yes, they are still active in their own native country of Sweden.  If you are non-Swede fan, you might be wondering what happened with them all throughout these years.  It is good that they have release a new album entitled “Good Karma” so that fans know that they are still productive.  Definitely, many of you are curious as to the kind of sound or music that they are still capable of producing at this point in time.

This new album from Roxette is a mix bag of familiar and the unfamiliar.  Yes, Marie Fredriksson still has that familiar voice we heard in “It Must Have Been Love.”  Her partner Per Gessle still has that famous vocal support that you heard in “Dressed For Success” and “Dangerous.”  In terms of music, this album has manage to sound like their older album with songs like “From A Distance,” It Just Happens,” and “You Make It Sound So Simple.”

But, Roxette tried to be experimental in one or another as they produced a different kind of sound that loyal fans are not familiar or closely associated with them.  For example, “20BPM” is a track that you might hear from U2.  Per Gessle manage to deliver a vocal performance and quality of voice that is quite similar to what The Edge of U2 did with “Numb.” In the track called “Some Other Summer,” they tried delivering a Europop sound were at this point in time can be considered risky considering that this kind of sound was really exploited by Lady Gaga.  Fortunately, the dance track did not sound like any of the tracks produced by the self confessed Goddess of Pop.

You can say that this album was produced just for the sake of fun.  The whole ambience of the album is quite light especially in the track “Good Karma.”  It has the vibe that really invites positive energy.  With that, I rate this record 3.5 stars out of 5 stars.

Ratings Description:

1 star = Ignore it

2 stars= risk it

3 stars = borrow or buy it

4 stars = buy it and keep it

5 = buy, keep, and treasure it
