As you’d expect from a Swedish duo who took their name from a Dr Feelgood song, these are not ballads in the conventional folky sense. Rather, at their best, they’re pomp-rock steamrollers, crushing the puny likes of Jennifer Rush with the mighty weight of their sentimentality. “It Must Have Been Love” was the standout tune in Julia Roberts’ Pretty Woman for good reason, and “Listen To Your Heart” could easily have replaced it. A must for drama queens and pop aficionados alike.
