Roxette – Good Karma
Roxette are all about momentum. When the production gives them no chance to dwell on any form of ballad or break down, they excel. Pianos are a no-go, and anything under 120 bpm is danger zone. Find the right rhythm and the results are delightful, with the vivid 80s colour they painted in swathes across their best tracks. They said this was meant to remind us of old Roxette, sprinkled with a contemporary flair. Let’s just stick with the old.
