Roxette enters Australian chart

Several months after its release in Australia, A Collection of Roxette Hits! has entered the Australian ARIA Album charts at number 93. This is the first time a Roxette album has entered the Top 100 in Australia since Have A Nice Day in 1999.

The Aria website had the following to say about the album.

Arguably one of Sweden’s most popular musical exports, Roxette made their mark on the international pop circuit during the late '80s and early '90s. Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson formed the pop double act phenomenon that was Roxette and brandished a whimsical blend of pop, rock, and dance to fans around the world that couldn’t seem to get enough of this dynamic duo. Mullets and shoulder pads aside, Roxette were the quintessential musical partnership of their time thanks to a string of successful releases including, Look Sharp! (#2 Sept. & Oct. ’89), Joyride (#2 Apr. ’91) and Crash! Boom! Bang! (#3 May ’94). Aptly titled, A Collection of Roxette Hits!, the band’s latest compilation offering celebrates twenty years in the music biz.
Other successful Swedish pop exports include Abba and Ace of Base.
