After what seems like an interminable wait Icona Pop's debut album
finally tilts its shiny fusilage over the horizon of the listening world.
Swedish duo Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt have been tinkering about
in the wings for a couple of years; an appealing collaboration with
Chiddy Bang, 'Mind Your Manners' in 2011 and a cracking single/EP
'Nights Like This', also 2011, were both promising propositions.

'This Is....Icona Pop' is a collection of eleven tracks which, although
unrelentingly formulaic in nature (big beats, brash synth arrangements
and the simplest-of-simple unison vocals and harmonies) nonetheless possess
a certain addictive charm which lend themselves to revelry and wild dancing.

You will already doubtless be familiar with the singles 'I Love It' (one
of Summer 2013's unavoidable earworms), 'All Night', 'We Got The World'
and (for my money their finest moment) the blissfully daft 'Girlfriend'.
What's left in the mix is largely more of the same (not that I was hoping
for anything else!) with the exception of the rather lovely 'Just Another
Night' which offers a little respite from the full-on aural assault with some
welcome light and shade and a well-sung appealing melody, despite having
been constructed by a veritable minibus-load of writers and co-writers.

Mindless fun doesn't really get much better than this.

I really bought this for one song (I love it) and I was a bit disappointed to find the rest of the album sounds like..... the rest of the album. Bit of a tired revival.

I decided to buy this album last month because I bought tickets to see Katy Perry live in concert and I knew Icona Pop was the support act, so I wanted to learn the lyrics and see if I liked them. Yes I did. The album is amazing full of dance songs and a few ballads which are really good. I seen Icona pop Saturday just passed in Glasgow on Katy's tour and they were AMAZING live, sounded just like the cd and they did about 6 songs from this album including my favourite Icona Pop song 'All Night' if you liked their song 'I Love It' you really enjoy this album!

I was pleasantly surprised by this album. When the first song enter the number one, it could have easily been a 'one-hit wonder', but there is a good variety and quality in the writing and production throughout this album. Nice one girls...

I love it as it is the first album, the songs are fresh and you could make up dance moves to them if you wanted, or just listen to in car or on a stereo.

Good nice up beat album. There's a few vocal numbers though if that's your thing. Overall good, if like Icona Pop, you'll simply love it.

Great fun album from swedish pop girls! If you liked the single "I love it" then you will probably like the whole album.
