5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting, life-affirming pure pop gold 22 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic album that contains the hit of the summer in 'Release Me'. With it's urgent, nagging strings, melancholy lyrics and huge bassline, 'Release Me' is a classic pop moment. Yet there are a number of other tracks that run it very close. 'On & On' has a slightly harder-edged Euro dance sound but again has a killer chorus and great vocals. 'Love, Love, Love' is glorious - a glitterball of a song that starts in Copacabana-esque 'cabaret style' and then explodes into joyous campy disco. It's melody feels so familiar, so immediate, that you can't help but smile every time you hear it. Elsewhere, there is the 'How Will I know'-ish 80s styling of 'Look at Me Now' and the Latin pop influenced 'Don't Pull Your Love Out'. It's everything that you hope a pop album will be - melodic, uplifting and instantly catchy. Additionally, the album artwork is beautiful and you get two videos thrown in as well.

UPDATE: The UK release of this album has been delayed several times and is now 'due' in May 2010. Fingers crossed that goes ahead and it doesn't turn into a digital-only release. The advantages of waiting include the addition of stunning new track 'Secret Love', which is a fantastically uplifting piece of dance pop with a great chorus that thumps home its melody right from the first listen. There is also a brilliantly reconstructed version of 'Big Blue Wall' that turns it into a melancholy electronic dance track. On the downside, 'Don't Pull Your Love Out' has been removed and the artwork is not quite so special. If you can afford to get both versions, this might be one of those rare occasions when it's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best things come to those who wait 3 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Finally released in the UK, after months and months of waiting (with minimal promotion and long after the initial wave of interest has subsided).

This is a superb pop album that contains the soundtrack of last summer in 'Release Me' and the inexplicably poorly received 'I Need You Now'. 'Love, Love, Love' is glorious - a glitterball of a song that starts in Copacabana-esque 'cabaret style' and then explodes into joyously knowing disco. It's melody is so familiar, so immediate, that you feel like singing along from the moment the beat kicks in.

Elsewhere, there is the melancholy Euro-disco of a remixed 'Big Blue Wall' (complete with the trademark Agnes ad-libs during the outro) and the harder-edged dance sound of 'On and On' (now remixed to sound more flowing, with a bigger chorus uplift & additional strings) . Best of all, new track 'Secret Love' is an immediate pop smash that just about slams its melody right at you: stirring synths, propulsive bassline and a brilliantly double-edge lyric make this an album high point.

The album's outer artwork is not as pleasing as the original 'Dance Love Pop - Love Love Love edition'. The sense of magic has gone, replaced by a more coldy efficient kind of marketing. Inside the booklet, the lyrics have been removed altogether. This, plus the removal of the excellent 'Don't Pull Your Love Out', is the only real disappointment.

It's a pity that the album's campaign has been messed around so much. Agnes has created a pure pop classic that may be destined to become a 'secret love', known only to a small number of UK music fans. Nonetheless, at least it's euphoric beauty is now available for all those who seek it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agnes - Dance Love Pop (Love Love Love edition) 11 Oct 2009
By s3.08
Format:Audio CD
This has got to be the best album of this year. Period. I first found about about Agnes by hearing "Release Me" on the radio. That song is addictive, but the rest of this album is just as good but in different ways. The title is really very appropriate - some Dance, some Love songs and some Pop. Agnes voice is just amazing - and because she is Swedish, she sounds slightly different to most other singers and I found this refreshing. The whole album is excellently produced and sounds just so professional.
I find it very uplifting, but there are also some seriously emotional songs (for example "Sometimes I Forget").
If you only buy one album this year, buy this one...

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific 20 July 2010
By Graham
Format:Audio CD
Why oh why did they delay the release of this in the UK for so long ?
It defies belief, and I'm sure because of the delay that people have
partially forgotten who this marvelously vocal and gorgeous singer is.
I love nearly all the tracks on this album with the exception of tracks
3 and 4. So much of her reminds me of Leona Lewis, her hair, her facial features, and of course, the voice. But they are not the same, with Leona a more classical singer and Agnes a pop singer, but each excels at what they do.
I'd recommend this to anyone who likes the sound of Leona but wants the beat of pop. Blast out tracks 1 and 2 and feel the infectious rhythm take you away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swedish Mirrorball Heaven 30 May 2010
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It is POP. You can indeed DANCE to it. I LOVE it! There I've said it!
I ought to stop right there but 'Dance Love Pop' has merit beyond
its inevitable popular appeal and deserves a few minutes attention.

As you will doubtless already know, Agnes Emilia Carlsson was
the winner of the talent chainsaw massacre Swedish Idol in 2005.
(You did know that, didn't you!?) As is the way with the execrable
but highly addictive franchise (and others of its ilk) many young singers
who had their moment in the spotlight have since disappeared and
the small number of those who went on to record a debut album
are, or were, unlikely to give birth to a second.
Ms Carlsson, however, may well be with us for a while longer.

She has a fine pair of lungs; of this there can be little doubt and her
collaboration with Swedish writer/producer Anders Hansson has
resulted in a kitch and camp but entirely coherent body of work.
The absence of too-many-cooks-syndrome works to her advantage.

Mr Hansson has lovingly recreated a late-eighties pop bubble
for Ms Carlsson to float about in. He has listened well to his
forebears and demonstrates that there is still more than a little
life left in the genre of anachronistic regeneration.
As a young man he would appear to have worshiped at the altar
of Stock, Aitken and Waterman and their spirit (as well as the
guiding light of his illustrious countrymen Benny Anderson and
Bjorn Ulvaeus) guides his musical imagination into some
wistfully nostalgic and pleasingly successful corners.

The songs are all highly formulaic and cliched to the nth degree
but we must forgive them this because it is all done very, very well.
