Product Description

Amazon.com

Danish group Aqua arrived on the international pop scene in 1997 with their multimillion-selling smash single "Barbie Girl." Developing a formula pioneered by their successful Swedish rivals Ace of Base and Whigfield, the band demonstrated on this album that they were more than just one-hit wonders (at least in markets outside America). Skillfully crafted for instant, easily digestible consumption, Aquarium is equally entertaining at the club or at home. It's jammed full of bubblegum pop classics, ranging from the Eurodisco opening track "Happy Girls & Boys" to the Madonna-esque ballad "Turn Back Time." A treat for all pop lovers, it is an album that will both entertain and surprise. --John Galilee

I have to admit I caught the "Barbie Girl" fever when the song was a huge hit back in '97. That was when I was a big fan of hi-nrg dance music. I listenined to "Aquarium" day in and day out. I think I annoyed the living daylights out of at least one of my roommates in college with the highly addictive pop album. As I am listening to the album for the first time in a few years, I can't help myself enjoy the irresistably infectious pop melodies. The only thing that has changed is my tolerance for Lene's helium-pitched vocals. Her vocals can be rather annoying but I can't imagine someone like caterwauler Celine Dion singing this type of dance-pop music. Another flaw with the album is the ballads are so syrupy and indigestable to my ears. I have to skip them. I prefer the more upbeat songs like "Doctor Jones" and "Lollipop (Candyman)", my two favorite Aqua songs on the cd. "Doctor Jones" and "Lollipop (Candyman)" are so addictively catchy, I never got tired of those songs. I still haven't after all this time I have gone so long without listening to this album. Unfortunately I had my fill of "Barbie Girl". That song got played into the ground just like that obnoxious "Macarena" (worst song ever). Although I am not a fan of this type of music anymore, Aqua put out some of the catchiest music known to mankind. You either liked it or you did. I rank "Aquarium" as one of my biggest guilty pleasures next to some of Cher's dance music.

Aqua used to be one of my favourite bands when I was younger. But for no reason, I just went off them. I don't listen to this album anymore, but I decided to review it for a laugh.
This album is brilliant stuff. It's one of those happy albums that everyone laughs at. Aqua are one of those bands that you either love or hate. Stand out tracks are:
3. Barbie Girl - Of course! The classic Aqua track, with the funny lyrics and catchy chorus. How could it not be a stand out track?
4. Doctor Jones - Another definite stand out. It's funny with an addictive chorus.
6. Heat Of The Night - A cool party track, with a great chorus and catchy verses.
8. Lollipop (Candyman) - My personal favourite off this CD. It's just so damn cute! It has an awesome chorus and adorable verses "I wish I was a bubblegum!" was my catchphrase for ages!
9. Roses Are Red - This track's music always reminded me of a computer game. A computer game I used to have has music like in this song. This has cool vocals too with 'Roses are red' being said backwards.
Overall, a cute, dancy happy little CD that a lot of kids probably still like. A good effort.

Aqua, the funky-looking foursome from Denmark ( actually, they're originally from Sweden ), graced the music scene in 1997 with their first single, the controversal "Barbie Girl". The happy beat of most of their songs led a lot of listeners ( myself, included ) to buy their début album, "Aquarium". Here is the track-by-track review:-
1) Happy Boys & Girls ( 2nd Single ):- Great opening to the album with this joyous song depicting happy people! Pretty much sets the mood for most of this album.
2) My Oh My:- The arrangement of this tune makes it seem like a song from a fairy tale in the medieval times. A creative arrangement carries out this strange melody nicely.
3) Barbie Girl ( 1st Single ):- The song that started it all. This club favourite has a catchy melody, funny premise, plus a funny, albeit squeaky female lead voice ( Lene Nystrøm ) playing Barbie, and a sexy male voice ( Réné Dif ) playing Ken.
4) Good Morning Sunshine:- A moderate ballad with a good beat that sounds plain in the verses but livens up promisingly in the chorus.
5) Doctor Jones ( 3rd Single ):- Another fast song with a nice beat, catchy melody that appeals to the young crowd. A very lively song that makes you want to dance.
6) Heat Of The Night:- A dance tune with a latin touch in the arrangement. The melody is so-so but is still very listenable with the attractive musical background.
7) Be A Man:- One of the two ballads in the album. This song is sometimes forgotten by listeners as they look forward to the fast songs from Aqua rather than slow ballads. Well, they are missing out! This is actually a very solid ballad with a melody that suits quite well with the touching lyrics. Definitely, one of my recommendations in this album.

Aqua's debut release, AQUARIUM, fights the music scene with Eurodance beats and childish, almost nursery rhyhme lyrics and topics. The record's standout tracks are the group's hugely popular debut single, "Barbie Girl", and the follow up single, "Lollipop (Candy Man)". Both songs are a sugary (except "Barbie Girl", with the whole "bimbo" personification) and catchy. Part of this attribute is the girlie, tongue in cheek voice of lead vocalist Lene Grawford Nystrom, and the "macho" (notice how the word macho is in quotes) raps of Rene Dif. The lyrics are, in their own right, just a mix of plain corniness that adds up to the fun, whismical feel of the album. Although a few tracks, such as "Happy Boys & Girls", "Heat of the Night", and "Be a Man", can be taken off the cd, it is an overall good record. The nursery farce of AQUARIUM has a both good and bad effect on the album. When you listen to the first four or five tracks, you think to yourself 'what a funny cd this is- I love it!'. But by the time you reach track 9 (which happens to be one of my favorites), you start saying "why the h*** am I listening to this crap?!" Aqua delivers a fresh and fun spirit that sometimes makes you feel like, believe it or not, that the world isn't so bad after all. The music may be stupid, it may be cute, but most importantly, it's by Aqua. And that is the bottom line.
