My first time I heard of Smile.dk (or at the time known as Smile) was when I was in Japan at Sega Joypolis pumping coins into the "Dance Dance Revolution" arcade game. Their song "Butterfly" was a catchy song that really caught my attention a decade ago and since then, their music over the years have been featured on various DDR games and ten years later, the group has a new track titled "Doki Doki" (Panic Mix) which will be featured on "Dance Dance Revolution Universe" for the XBOX 360.

But back in 2005, I remember that there was new going on if the group would continue because the women were married and have become mothers, also the group has changed quite a bit with Veronica Larsson, the only member of the original duo that still performs with the group. Malin Kernby who replaced Nina Boquist (the original member) left the group earlier this year. Malin did take part in recording a few tracks on this album such as "Doki Doki" but left the group due to personal matters and brought in Hanna Stockzell to replace her.

So, the year has been a restart of Smile.dk which now currently consists of Veronica Larsson and Hanna Stockzell, a new start with a new label, new producers and now a new album titled "Party Around the World".

Having not released an album since 2002, Smile.dk has released their fifth album on Oct. 2008 with "Party Around the World" and needless to say, American fans are excited with the announcement that the duo will be performing at the largest anime convention in the East Coast, Otakon in the Summer of 2009.

The duo's album "Party Around the World" features a good balance of European Pop/dance tracks such as "Doki Doki" (which is a Japanese slang for the heart beating).

5.0 out of 5 stars Music that is Creative and Upbeat January 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I too agree with the reviews that this music on this cd is bubblegum pop at its finest. There are many upbeat and fun dance/pop songs from the Swedish group Smile.dk on here that every song on this quality cd has creative substance. This is one of those rare cds where every song on the compilation stands on its own. The following are the songs that I would recommend listening to first before playing the whole cd:

"Temptation Island"- A very energetic and fun summer themed song about allowing your free spirit to rein, and allowing oneself to experience all the good things that life has to offer.
"Koko Soko"- A very unique song that has a lovely fusion of Japanese, electronic,dance, and trance music fused together. The song is about making a connection with someone that is very special and brings much joy and light.
"Summer Party"- A great summer-themed musical track about dancing, having a good time, and letting oneself act a little wild and uninhibited (with the use of the lyrics used of "acting naughty").
"Hummingbird"- A great melody about finding ways to feel good in your life regardless of external circumstances (the upbeat music used in this really adds to the positive strength of the song)
"Paradise"- This is a more mellow and calm song. However, both the lyrics and music are very beautiful and give you a feeling of being in your own personal heaven. It is a gorgeous song about creating heaven on earth for yourself, and wanting to "give heaven" to the person that gives those positive feelings of being "in paradise".
I have had this cd since December 2008, and I find it even more enjoyable to listen to than when I first purchased it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smile.dk is back!!!! December 4, 2008
By Kyle N.
Format:Audio CD
After 7 years or so, Smile.dk is back, and their new album is absolutely AMAZING!!! Almost all of the tracks are good and catchy (just the first 3 tracks make me wanna dance already). Some of the songs in this album are probably one of the best you've ever heard, like "Koko Soko" or "Doki Doki." If you love Smile.dk, this is a MUST-HAVE CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album November 21, 2008
By Bayson
Format:MP3 Music
They've been gone for way too long. I'm glad they came back just as awesome as I remember them. Its hard to pick a favorite track. If you've liked their other works, chances are very high you will like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing November 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It has been quite a while since the last Smile.dk album, and it was quite worth the wait. Tracks 1, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 11 are the best. The new singer blends seamlessly into the Smile.dk style and is a great fit fro the group. If you like Smile.dk, you NEED this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smile.dk - Party Around the World July 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Despite it's powerful tunes and influence on the DDR series Smile.dk isn't the kind of group whose CD's are easy to come by. Thank goodness for Amazon because this CD is a "must have". There is a lot of Japanese references but you don't need to be a manga/anime geek to feel the energy behind their music. It really is a party for all.

Bubble Gum at it's finest, Buy it.
