Expressen: “Bold sound, Roxette”

Aftonbladet didn’t like “Wish I Could Fly” in its review, but Expressen’s Måns Ivarsson does. He likes Per’s “clever pop a lot”. “The sound is bold and even fantastic, dominated by a leaden bass against the sometimes severe, sometimes terrible strings. Roxette has never sounded this before (even though the chorus sounds familiar).”

“I don’t know if Steve Earle fans listen to Roxette, but the two minutes with the guitar and the strings have an exact ‘quotation’ from the Earle song ‘The other kind’. Cool.”

Expressen gives three bees to “Wish I Could Fly”.
