Product Description

Amazon.com

From the first track to the last, Teen Spirit is pure, delicious teen pop. Unlike American pubescent stars, the A*Teens have no funky ambitions and nothing to prove. Each cut is more infectious than the last, pulling you out of your skepticism by compelling your feet to move and your butt to shake in time to the catchy beat. Also unlike many of their American counterparts, the A*Teens' voices are strong enough to carry the tunes. You won't get frightened off by Aguilera-inspired histrionics or Spears-esque growling and grunting. These kids sing with age-appropriate lyrics and a distinct lack of bumping and grinding. Teen Spirit breaks no new ground, but the uniform "goodness" of the kids--pictured playing with makeup (girls) and playing outside (boys)--makes you want to root for them and, ultimately, makes you want to own the disc. --Courtney Kemp

No, the album title is not a reference to the famous Nirvana song. Nor is the content of the CD solely full of ABBA covers. But A*Teens have returned, and are intent upon showing off their newfound spirit - Teen Spirit, that is. In what is arguably the most sugar-coated album of the day, the Swedish quartet attempts and almost manages to convey the idea that one should have fun no matter where one is.
The group, consisting of Amit Paul, 17, Marie Serneholt, 17, Dhani Lennevald, 16, and Sara Lumholdt, 16, was put together in the middle of 1999, when producers from Stockholm Records traveled to the teenagers' dance school in Stockholm, Sweden, and held a try-out for a new group, which was to be called ABBA*Teens. Wowed by the four, Stockholm Records immediately set them to work creating The Abba Generation, an album of remakes of eleven timeless ABBA hits, including "Mamma Mia" and the eternal "Dancing Queen."
The Abba Generation was a huge success in Europe, going platinum this summer, and even made it to the Top 100 Billboard chart in the United States. A*Teens, who changed their name shortly before the album was released, then traveled to the US, first to tour with `NSYNC, then with Britney Spears. They ended the summer with a Nickelodeon festival, all the while gaining more popularity. Afterwards, A*Teens returned to Sweden to record their next album, which was put on shelves Feb. 27, and gave a live webcast performance in Madrid to celebrate the release.
The release of the first single from Teen Spirit, entitled "Bouncing Off the Ceiling (Upside Down)" in the US, caused a sensation. The video for the song was played constantly on Sweden's ZTV; likewise, it was making it to the Top 5 on music video countdowns on The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon in the US.

Teen Spirit reveals a new face of a-teens. After the huge success of "Abba Generation", their debut album, a-teens is back for more, showing they can do more than abba covers. The original idea of bringing abba songs back, with a modern beat, was good, but their fans noticed a-teens had to perform their own songs to have a solid career.
This second CD is great because all their songs are original, but at the same time the band manages to keep abba spirit alive. Some of the new songs are very similar to N'SYNC, Britney and BSB ("That's what (it's all about), Rockin'), but it is not only a repetition of these popular singer/bands. A-Teens has its own swedish style and it makes them great on stage.
The whole album is good, specially "halfway round the world", "..to the music" and "upside down". I also love "morning light", which reminds me a lot of another great sweden band, Ace of Base (just compare!).
If you like swedish pop, this is a MUST-HAVE CD for you.

This CD is a great follow-up to ABBA Generation! Sweden is well-known for having some of the best pop record producers in the world and this CD is a testimony to that fact. From pure floor-stomping dance tunes like "Upside Down" and "Halfway Around the World" to slower ballads like "Around the Corner of My Eye" and "Firefly", there is something for everyone on this CD. Although some of the songs are pure teen pop, the A-Teens sound is far more refined and noticely more mature. Like ABBA tunes, hidden amongst a seemingly simple melody are harmonizing vocal arrangements and infectious hooks. Teen Spirit is full of these! Although there are no ABBA covers on this CD, "Back for More" has a hauntingly familiar ABBA sound. Several songs are representative of groups like NSync, Backstreet, and Britney: Rockin, Slammin' Kind of Love, and That's What (It's All About). For those familiar with Swedish pop, Morning Light and All My Love are very much in the style of Ace of Base. The mix of songs and styles on this disc is an addicting journey to the next level of A-Teens. The vocals are strong and show great range. I can't say enough good things about Teen Spirit. Apart from the Bonus Track, "Don't Even Know Your Name", the last track "Back For More" is almost a tease for the next A-Teens CD. In the meantime, this is one of those rare CDs that you can play over and over from beginning to end. Buy this CD now!

I am not a fan of pop music, and I never have been. I'm more into Broadway and classical, so I never would have expected to like the A Teens. But I heard the song 'Upside Down' while my younger brother was watching Nickelodeon, and I found myself singing it constantly for the next week or so! I went online and read the rest of the lyrics of the CD, and the songs didn't sound like anything I would appreciate, but then I heard 'Halfway 'Round the World' and 'Sugar Rush', and again, I can't get them out of my head! You wouldn't expect these songs to be as good as they are, which makes the CD such a delightful surprise. You really have to listen to the songs to get to like them, as I did. They're different from American pop...they have an innocence about them that I appreciate, and the videos also have a childishness that AmerPop is seriously lacking. After all, pop is aimed towards kids, and therefore, the artists should portray themselves to their audiences. The A Teens just have this irresistible playfulness to them, their songs being just sugary-sweet fun. You almost cannot hate them because of their wide-eyed innocence, and the ease in which you can apply their songs to your own life. I highly reccomend this CD, if only for the three songs 'Upside Down', 'Sugar Rush', and 'Halfway Round the World'.
