Consumer Guide Reviews:

Let's Keep This Up Forever [Sony, 2009]
In which a Norwegian sexpot or credible simulation of same devises ditties along the lines of "I've got a credit card/Big as a whale/I want to buy your love/Is it for sale?" By the stringent standards of the Black Eyed Peas, not deep, although "Life Still Goes On" tries. Not beatwise, either. But less well-fixed than she pretends, I bet. And seductively catchy, in which sexy helps. B+
