5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Bubblegum Bands Ever March 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally! - The reawakening of a band that, unlike so many others, begs a new musical chapter. After releasing two extremely solid albums of singable, danceable pop near-perfection, Aqua flamed out and splashed abruptly in 2001 - leaving many of us, myself included, seriously bummed that a band so much more primal and fun than the sizable majority of mainstream musical acts getting airplay would leave us with no worthy heir apparent to the Bubblegum genre throne.

So, here is the low down on the new cd. Even though this recording is only a greatest hits disc, it is worth getting merely for the three new tracks and the remastered songs if you're a long-time fan - so enough said if you're one of those. As for those of you out there not familiar with Aqua, I have this to say: If you have any affinity for pop/dance/electronica/bubblegum music, you really should order this album now. Aqua melds many different musical influences and styles into a seriously infectious synth- and beat-filled lineup of outstanding pop tracks - their songs are like the musical equivalent of Pop Tarts: they are hard edged, yet soft and warm inside, and always deliciously sugary and addictive. Leni's voice is a feminine siren song, plying your desire with its Lolita-like girlishness, while René's voice adds excellent masculine counterpoint. Aqua's output is perfect music for driving, cleaning house, or Caribbean-flavored clubbing on Duval Street in Key West - which is where I first encountered them back in the nineties and where I got instantly addicted. If you like catchy pop music, especially the kind driven by sensual, teenybopper female leads, forget Brittany, Hillary, Miley and the vast collection of other second-raters - get Aqua instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Aqua - Greatest Hits December 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The comeback compilation album from Danish band Aqua saw the release in 2009. Although the band achieved reasonable success with some of their singles, especially the breakthrough signature song "Barbie Girl", it is still quite strange to see a band that released only two albums come up with the greatest hits compilation (if 16 out of 23 songs the band has ever recorded are the greatest hits then the other 7 are just great hits or what?). As a result, the quality of the majority of material is quite decent, with repetitive rhythms making you feel you are listening to the same song again and again, which, when it comes to Aqua, is actually not that bad at making you happy unless you are not looking for something more serious and profound.
Apart from the international hits and some of their more solid material, of which "Around the World" stands out particularly, there are numerous infectious bubblegum fillers that will keep you humming throughout the day and keep the album move along at a nice pace. The three new songs ("Back To The 80s", "My Mamma Said", "Live Fast Die Young") do not add much to the whole picture, as almost 9 years apart from each did not add much maturity to the
band's sound.
With the exception of a couple of ballads ("Aquarius" and "Belong To The Sea"), the songs are in eurodance genre when Lene Nystrom starts and finishes the verse and Rene Dif sings rap in the middle. On some of the songs Aqua is experimenting
with acoustic instruments and Latino tempos, but without noticable success.
The album might be a perfect excursion into the 90s sound, but CD box with the first two albums and new songs as a bonus would still be preferrable. --Sain Alizada

5.0 out of 5 stars The CD was good March 24, 2014

I like the songs but the CD I got may be a copy, looks ok but the print on the CD looks fake, like its done on a regular 3rd world country printer.

If you are looking for some light, bubbly, mindless euro-dance-pop-fluff this should be on your short list. Nothing terribly deep or angst ridden. Read more
