Amazingly enough it's been 25 years since Roxette's breakthrough album Look Sharp! was released... Whatever happened? Although the sleeve, and Wikipedia, state the release date as October 19, it was really released the 21st, a Friday. Expressen's reviewer wrote that the album sucked because it contained too many hits. Go figure.
