Roxette (admit it- they have some classic pop songs)
Roxette? No thanks, do they have a good album?
Look Sharp! is absolutely perfect pop and Have a Nice Day isn't far behind. Honestly, pop has become a 4-letter word in the industry and only scant few pop albums or songs ever garner critical grace, which is unfortunate.
the whole Look Sharp! album. My fave singles from Look Sharp were Listen to Your Heart and Dangerous. Though if Roxette is being championed, why not Ace of Base? :-) The Sing could be looked at as perfect pop- problem is, I think for a pop album to get notable notices, it has togo beyond pop, stretch the boundaries, so to speak. Obvuiously Ace of Base didn;'t do that (nor did Roxette)- another strike against Ace of Base is that they were seen as Abba wanna-bes, in a way.
The Sign wasn't a solid album throughout. Look Sharp! really is.
