They made an initial splash with a disc of sugary-sweet ABBA covers, 2000's The ABBA Generation, but the A-Teens have since broadened their songbook to include sugary-sweet tunes from other sources. With Pop 'Til You Drop!, the youthful Swedes match the ear candy of their last disc, Teen Spirit, once again dividing vocal duties among the members of the gender-balanced quartet, echoing both ABBA and more recent Swedish predecessors Ace of Base. The resulting sound spans both breezy, Britney-like ballads ("This Year") and more beat-driven N*Sync-ish dance jams ("Slam"). Whichever style they're attempting, the Teens make the most of their gorgeous harmonies, whether on the electro-funk lite "Floorfiller," the soaring Latin-flavored ballad "Cross My Heart," or "Closer to Perfection," a synth-heavy, Human League-reminiscent track. This fresh-scrubbed quartet even put their stamp on a perky cover of the Elvis Presley smash "Can't Help Falling in Love" -- also included on the Disney soundtrack for Lilo & Stitch -- and a campy remake of Alice Cooper's "School's Out," complete with Michael Jackson-like whoops, Vocoder-drenched vocals, and bubbly rhythms. With Pop 'Til You Drop, the A-Teens get an upgrade to the A-list of contemporary pop acts.

A*Teens are so cool and inspirational to my life i love there music.
This album is great!! My favorite song is ''Can't Help Falling in Love'' which is on the ''Lilo And Stitch'' soundtrack.I also like ''Singled Out'' and ''Slam''.This album is for all pop fans.
''Pop 'Til you drop'' is just an amazing album.It has a mixture of Rock and pop.My favorite song is ''Can't help falling in Love'' which is originally sung by Elvis Presley.The A*teens version is just so amazing that you just cant help falling in love with it.
Pop 'Til You Drop is an awsome cd. I have every one of the A-Teen's cds they are just simplely a fantastic singing group. AMAZING
THIS ALBUM IS GREAT. IT FULLY MADE ME SATISFIED. IT MAKES YOU DANCE TO THE MUSIC. IT'S AWESOME. EVERYONE SHOULD GET IT.
this cd is a must to buy. Once you buy this cd you wont want to turn you cd player off!!!
2day I went 2 Target and looked at Cds. I wanted Michelle Branch and Vanessa Carlton. I also wanted A*Teens. I had heard 4 of their songs on the radio. Upsidedown,Halfway Arounfd the Wrld, Can't Help Falling In Love,and Floorfiller. I thought in the blink of an eye was cheesy. My faves were Floorfiller, Can't Help Falling In Love,Let Your Heart Do All the Talking,and This Year.
Their newest CD ''Pop 'Til You Drop'' is a pretty incredible album with funky, pop, and futuristic songs! My favorites are the ''Can't help Falling In Love'' which was, I believe, originally sung by the famous Elvis Presley but this song has this groovy beat to it, ''Hi and Goodbye,'' ''Oh, Oh...Yeah,'' and ''Floorfiller.''
I bought this CD a few weeks ago and the only time I haven't had it in my CD player is when I'm playing Avril Lavigne. This CD has rock songs, dance songs, an Elvis Presley cover (Cant Help Falling in Love) and an Alice Cooper cover (Schools out, which features Cooper.) All in all, good cd.
This is one of their best albums yet. They have awesome songs that inspire you to do what you wanna do in life.
I LOVED A*Teens with their first two albums but this one was a huge disappointment. It had corny songs and bad lyrics. The only song I really like was "In the Blink of an Eye". This CD survived like 1 day in my CD player. I don't know if I'll even buy their next CD.
I would give this cd a 5 star because I love the beat and at a teen age, teens want music that has a great beat, I know I do. It is a cd kids and teens can go crazy dancing to without any bad language, or sex related things.
This is a great album. It is probabaly better than Teen Spirit, but that's up for debate. Their songs are even better when performed live in concert. Lots of variety in music types.
Pop Till You Drop is the best A*Teens CD so far! Over all the CD earns 5 stars. Song Ratings - 1. Floorfiller ****1/2 2. Can't Help Falling In Love **** 3. Let Your Heart Do All The Talking ***1/2 4. Closer To Perfection ***1/2 5. Hi And Goodbye **** 6. This Year **** 7. Slam ***** 8. Cross My Heart **** 9. Singled Out **** 10. Oh, Oh . . . Yeah ***** 11. In The Blink Of An Eye ***1/2 12. School's Out ****1/2
