When the A-Teens came out in 2000 with an album full of remakes of ABBA songs, the quartet of photogenic young Swedes had a nice run up the charts. If anything, the group was a testament to the lasting power of ABBA's sugary but lush pop music. This time around, instead of blatantly ripping off ABBA, they choose to emulate the trademark sound of ubiquitous Swedish pop super-producer Max Martin, who has been responsible for writing and producing hits for *N Sync, Britney Spears, and the Backstreet Boys. Most of the songs on the album are right out of the Martin handbook, complete with cookie-cutter rhythm tracks and lyrics, and lightweight, electronically enhanced harmonies.
