Spring 1988. Two years ago Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle had formed Roxette with the ambition to conquer the world and have a lot of fun along the way.

In 1991, Roxette embarked upon its first global tour, Join the Joyride. The tour lasted a little over a year, played more than 100 dates and sold out to more than a million people. While traveling, Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle decided to "capture the energy of the band" by documenting their development on tape. But the result, Tourism, is not a compilation of live material, or what Gessle has referred to as a "second-rate greatest hits album." Rather, it's a tour album, complete with some live tracks, some re-mastered material from the late '80s and some newly written, newly recorded songs. Some of the recording locations include an empty night club, an un-air-conditioned hotel room and studios in Copenhagen and Los Angeles. Live material comes from Sydney and São Paolo, among other places.
This is, by far, Roxette's best overall effort. Its spontaneity, energy and enthusiasm are prevalent in almost every one of the 16 tracks here. With the exception of older songs such as "Silver Blue" - the original B-side to the 1989 single "The Look" - and material recorded for but not included on the Joyride album - "Come Back (Before You Leave)" and "Queen of Rain" - these songs keep the momentum high. From the pure simplicity of "Fingertips" and "Here Comes the Weekend" to the acoustic remake of "So Far Away," a song originally included on the 1986 Pearls of Passion album, what you get is a true sense of growth and a tight set of bandmembers who are obviously having fun. Gessle pumps, and Fredriksson glides. Other winners here include "Cinnamon Street," "The Heart-Shaped Sea," "Never Is a Long Time" and "The Rain.

I've been a hardcore Rox fan ever since I heard "It Must Have Been Love" back in the early '90s. This album, while a big departure from Roxette's traditional synth-ladden sound, manages to capture the very essence of what makes Roxette such a great band, and lays the groundwork for the equally rockier "Crash! Boom! Bang!". Tourism was put together mostly during their first world tour, and as a result, we get a very varied selection of venues, recording styles, and arrangements... You name it, Per and Marie experimented with it.
I couldn't do justice to this masterpiece without providing a small review of each song. So, here we go:
1. How Do You Do!: A traditional Roxette tune. Upbeat, and very lighthearted.
2. Fingertips: This is the first departure. Accoustic guitars dominate this mid-tempo song, one of Per's best.
3. The Look: Recorded live in Australia, this is arguably the best version yet of Roxette's first megahit. The audience plays a big role in the second half of the song. Amazing.
4. The Heart Shaped Sea: A beautiful ballad about letting go of the one you love. The subtle, understated music track works very well on this one.
5. The Rain: A very moody, instrospective song. Great to listen to on a rainy day.
6. Keep Me Waiting: A more traditionl Roxette rocker, but grittier and harder-hitting than anything in "Look Sharp!" or "Joyride". The lyrics are wonderfully bizarre, as only Per could write them.
7. It Must Have Been Love: The quintessential Roxette song, this particular version is probably the only low point in the album. A country-style remake that works as a novelty item, nothing more.
8. Cinnamon Street: Don't let the sugary title fool you. This another example of the edgier Roxette.

What a fabulous Roxette album. The reason why I liked it is because the emphasis wasn't on hits. Their songs are so earthy, different and such a pleasure to listen to. I love all the songs off this album, but my very favorites are "Fingertips", "The Heart Shaped Sea", "The Rain", "Silver Blue", "So Far Away", "Things Will Never Be The Same" and "Queen of Rain". Marie is clearly the best vocalist I have ever heard in my life, and her voice just makes such an impact on song after song (hey, Per's voice is pretty unique, too!). Per makes his mark as a great songwriter and musician. A nice mix of acoustic & electric sounds. A great CD to own and I never get tired of listening to it.
I have always admired the way Roxette keeps making great music for us devoted fans because they want to do it and it's really a shame that radio stations are oblivious to the fact that Roxette is one of the best music groups in the world and that some people would rather hear their music instead of the same formulated, programmed dispenser crap we hear today on the radio.
P.S. Last year, I phoned our local radio station and "weaseled" some information out of one of the DJ's. I told him that Roxette has a new album out (this was when "Room Service" was released) and asked him why the radio station wasn't playing any new songs off of it (or any Roxette songs, for that matter.) He replied that the album wasn't charting so that's why they weren't playing any new songs off of the album. I thought that was a bunch of bull and retorted back with, "Well, of course the album isn't going to chart if you're not going to play it!"
