  • AQUARIUM isn't the place to turn if you're looking for introspective, soul-searching meditiations on the meaning of life and the universe. But if you like techno bubble gum this might just be a little slice of heaven. They love it in Denmark, where the album went quintuple platinum, and they love it in the clubs, because the mechanical, boppy, sing-songiness makes for the perfect dance music. "Happy Boys and Girls," the disc's opening track, is a perfect representation of the Aqua sound: "Be happy" squeal the little-girl backup singers. The drum machine kicks in, mechanical high-hat hissing away, and you can just see those European dance floors filling up with happy Danish boys and girls. This disc has a tongue-in-cheek feel to it, as if Aqua is almost satirizing the techno-dance genre, but it's basically harmless, good-natured fun.
Professional Reviews
Spin (11/97, p.148) - 6 (out of 10) - "...AQUARIUM takes the jigged-up nursery rhymes of Europop to their logical, infantilized conclusions....Both remorselessly effervescent and consistently scary..."

Entertainment Weekly (10/17/97, pp.71-72) - "...Keeping to Scando-pop tradition, Aqua's music is relentlessly upbeat and club oriented....The band's resume, which includes the score to a children's film in Denmark, reveals itself in the singsongy, nursery-rhyme feel of many of the tracks..."
