Roxette? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

Is their being from Sweden (rather than America, Canada or Great-Britain) the reason as to why Roxette is not fully appreciated in the world? :confused:

In the end, I don't really mind though. I like 'em and I know they've had a lot of success. But somehow I feel that minor artists get more attention than they deserve. Roxette has after all 20 international hits and a total of +40 million copies sold. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

What's your opinion on them? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

My opinion of Roxette is that in some ways they were an ok group in the 80's. I did however find the female singer slightly annoying in that, for me, she was too busy trying to imitate Annie Lennox.

Nice to hear an other opinion (doesn't matter whether it's good or bad). But I have to tell you (stop me if I'm starting to sound too freaky about this topic) that they only started in 1986 and made a great deal of (fabulous) music in the '90s as well. They took a break now, but that's because Marie (the female singer) Frederikson had just defeated cancer ... poor woman! :(

As for looking like Annie Lennox ... I can understand that you said that, but I know for a fact that this was unintentional. They're both very different; especially from a musical point of view. I guess some people just look alike.

Thanks for sharing your opinion!

Bye for now
