Album Review

"Barbie Girl" is one of those inexplicable pop culture phenomena — a bouncy, slightly warped Euro-dance song that simultaneously sends up femininity and Barbie dolls. Mattel wasn't too amused, but the public was, making it a huge hit in Europe and America. Like many Europop acts, Aqua isn't capable of delivering another song as insanely catchy as "Barbie Girl," but there's plenty of infectious filler that keeps the album moving along at a nice pace.

I Hope You Like EuroCheese!

If you want a stereotypical cheesy 90s dance album, then you've come to the right place. Sure, it's cheesy, but we're not talking about the sickeningly mediocre cheesy, we're talking about the fun, good cheesy. Aqua made success with their breakout hit "Barbie Girl" which exploits the phenomena of the doll, and continued with the great "Dr. Jones". This album is full of little guilty pleasures, and overall proves to be a worthwhile buy. 1. "Happy Boys and Girls" - A fun introduction to the Aqua world: poppy, dancey, and strictly 90s. You'll be dancing in no time. 2. "My Oh My" - Get transported to a Disney-ish castle in this fantasy-ish song. Pretty good. 3. "Barbie Girl" - If you haven't heard this, I'm not sure where you've been. It's an instant classic. 4. "Good Morning Sunshine" - Aqua is also very good at downtempo ballads, as shown here. The vocalist shines on the downtempo ones. 5. "Dr. Jones" - Best song on the album, even better than "Barbie Girl". 6. "Heat of the Night" - A good party song. 7. "Be A Man" - A more serious song for once. 8. "Lollipop (Candyman)" - Another Aqua song I'm sure you've heard, either in a candy store or elsewhere. Way too catchy for its own good. 9. "Roses are Red" - Puts a twist on the rhyme. 10. "Turn Back Time" - Another good downtempo ballad. 11. "Calling You" - Another really good song, one of the best on the album. Kind of like an introduction to trance music with the music, but in other ways far from it. So, overall, this is a great album with amazing vocals and pretty cheesy lyrics but in the good way. The uptempo songs are fun, and the downtempo ballads are a nice little escape from the inner child which is outside most of the time during this album. Overall the album gets an A-. As Puppy Dog said, not only is "Barbie Girl" fetch, but it deserves remixes.

Barbie Girl!

The song Barbie Girl rocks it's so fetch. It hot! To bad they didn't make a remix! that would of been hotter!

Awsome for everyone

Eventhough I am a straight guy I can still jam out to these tunes even today. These songs shall never get old. Not even when I am eighty.

Biography

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Storming onto the international music scene in the fall of 1997, the Danish dance-pop outfit Aqua aroused controversy when Mattel filed a lawsuit against them for the sexual overtones inherent in their breakthrough hit, "Barbie Girl." The roots of the quartet trace back to 1989, when Claus Norreen and Søren Rasted (both keyboards/drum machine) were working together on the soundtrack for a Danish film, Fraekke Frida. During this time they met future member René Dif (rap/vocals), who introduced them...
