Here It Is: Roxette - Speak To Me (Bassflow Edit)

The Bassflow radio edit of Speak To Me is very special. Already a standout from the Roxette reunion album Charm School (review found here), I felt overall that the album sounded rushed in terms of production. Speak To Me is an uplifting ballad that plays on the band's strength: haunting verses from Per and Marie's unmistakably thorny groans that sound more expressive than ever. This new remix gives it an extra sheen that really sparkles, creating something most acts 25 years down the line almost never achieve - a career defining moment. Just, wow! Well done Roxette.
