Background: Released in 1988, Look Sharp! was the second album by Roxette, and the first to receive worldwide distribution.
The album reached #4 on the UK charts and #23 on the U.S. chart.
Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson exploded onto the pop radar screen with Look Sharp!, which spawned four big hits: the bright, shiny “The Look,” the punchy, hopeful “Dressed for Success,” the A/C-leaning “Dangerous,” and the bland, overproduced “Listen to Your Heart.” The cuts that weren’t released as singles aren’t necessarily filler, but they also aren’t as strong as many of the cuts that made up Roxette albums that followed, particularly Joyride and Tourism … Gessle and Fredriksson became artists at crafting superb pop melodies and surrounding them with amazing production, so think of this album as basic training.
