“She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)” reviews trickle in

As a reaction of the premature single release last friday the first music websites and blogs already posted initial reviews of Roxette’s new single. Here’s some excerpts:

The song sounds like classic Roxette with a modern twist. With an amazing sense of melody and the unique mix of Marie Fredriksson’s and Per Gessle’s voices, She’s Got Nothing On has the potential to be the biggest single from the duo since “Joyride”, their last Canadian number one hit in 1991.

Rockstar Weekly

As for us, well we just think it’s a good song really! … Retro guitars and huge drum beats are mixed up in a pop mould, and it gives the song a sugar coating that would make any pill easier to swallow. Melody wise, the chorus is very Roxette – soaring and anthemic.


… a return to form for the Swedish hit makers. The soaring vocal melodies are what one would expect to hear from a band that created some of the biggest hits of the 80s and 90s. If promoted properly, “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)” could be poised to garner the band a whole new audience of music fans.

From the Pop In Stereo article we already mentioned.

Too little Marie, the very echo of the past.
No, the first Roxette single in several years is not a grand comeback.

Expressen gives 2/5 bees, like in the good old times…

Hopefully the label also gives the pair another shot in the States, as well, with “She’s Got Nothing On”, because if Per Gessle’s composition proves only one thing, it’s that he’s still at the top of the game when it comes to Swede pop perfection. We think Roxette are still looking sharp. What say you?

    • Brace yourselves – the music industry has changed a lot since the mid nineties when Roxette conquered planet Earth! The average critics are bound to trash and rip Roxette’s latest efforts to shreds, just because they don’t sound, look or dress like Lady GaGa or Britney or Katy Perry. It is really up to the Roxette fans to buy the albums and to ensure the concerts are sold out to show the critics that the fans still have a lot of influence !!!

  1. so the youtube video is blocked now – we can link to the reviews (except Idolator, which features an own stream of the song) 😉

  2. All youtube video’s for SGNOBTR have been removed…
    Also the fantastic video by Danilo Roxette, which is a shame, because it was such a nice & fun tribute… 🙁

  3. well, it’s copyrights. I am sure EMI will relax when the single is released, but for now all videos are probably uploaded by people who didn’t pay for the song.
