Aquarium - Aqua
Advantages: Fun!! Catchy Tunes!!
Aquarium is the debut album from Danish pop group Aqua. The album was released in 1999 and so is quite 'old' now. The album is currently available to buy from Amazon from as little as 1p which I think is excellent value for money.

The album consists of euro-pop (think Vengaboys!). The music is very cheesy!! They have a very unique sound!
The songs which stand out for me are the ones which were released as singles. I absolutely love, Barbie Girl,(an incredibly cheesy, yet girlie song) Doctor Jones (so catchy) and Turn Back Time (a lovely ballad).
The lead singer, Lene's voice is very high-pitched and can be annoying at times. However, I think it is her voice which makes the songs so unique and also means that you can easily identify any of Aqua's songs. I wouldn't say she's a good singer; in fact she's very child-like, however she does bring life to the songs.
This is the kind of album that will appeal to kids as well as adults. It's the type of album you can sing along to whilst driving in the car.
The lyrics are very catchy and just make you want to join in. Lyrics include; 'I'm a Barbie Girl, in a Barbie world, life is plastic, it's fantastic' along with other songs consisting of lots of 'I-pee-ai-ee-ai--pee-ai-oh-ai-pee-ai-eh-oh-woah'. You can guarantee that you will be singing along in not time. The songs are very 'fun' - so much that they are quite comical.
If you love cheesy pop, I would definitely recommend this album to you!
Thanks for reading!
