The former member of ABBA delivers another album of easy listening music.  The voice is still there as if she hasn’t age at all.  It is still crisp and looks like it’s the same voice when ABBA was still very active. Her voice is really perfect for middle of the road songs that are meant to relax or as your own guilty pleasure.  Perhaps it’s the European side in her that her songs are not as risky as those with American superstars where they tend to experiment in terms of sounds and lyrics.

There are two ways of looking at this album.  If you are an ABBA, the whole album is just right and perhaps would remind you of the Swedish group and play some old tracks of the group.  If you are just a plain music fan, you would feel that this is album is quite boring.  The whole album is composed of love songs and ballads except for a disco track “Dance Away.” The best track in here is her duet with Gary Barlow formerly of Take That in the song “I Should’ve Follow You Home.”

The whole vibe of the album is like being stuck in the 70’s where most love songs are sugary and sweet.  In terms of melodies, it’s so middle of the road that you could mistook this album as gospel album.  Now, if you want to have this as your guilty pleasure, go ahead and play this music while reading the latest book of your favorite romance authors.

I rate this album 3 stars out of 5 stars.
