Funny how some Basshunter fans defend him with quotes like "Early Basshunter is good Lol <(^^,)> is his best album, after that he sucks! "Now Your Gone" & Bass Generation are bad !" It's just like modern cartoons that suck compared to the classic from the 40-60's, we defend our decade we grew up with claiming it's the best. I started listening to commercial trance music in 2007, but once I discovered all the quality music and some nice innovations from the early-to-mid 90's I never bothered to listen anything new. Fans who grew with Basshunter would say he was good in the beginning but know he sucks. Pity most don't dig deeper to find a million better tunes. What Basshunter does at his best = Give people with little to zero knowledge about electronic music some shit taste and think he's innovative. Oh Basshunter, why don't stop producing all the super cliched music you make ? It's no good to the industry. Your music is as Souless as a bad American Idol contestent with little to no talent. He tries and tries... but discovers he has better talent being a Janitor than a singer / producer. But as Basshunter has marketing and technology at his side even putrid turds at making music like him shine to the clueless audience.

This so-called wonder artist kid from Sweden has caused some massive stir among the young hardhouse/Eurohouse clubbers here in Scandinavia with the song 'Boten Anna'. And this is another perfect example how big of a joke the commercial pop charts where it currently is climbing steady upwards. It's seriously nothing else than headache-giving super-cheesy hard house that has long died due to non-reinvention. And what else, it has that Vocoder vocal ala Cher-Believe..
A disgrace..
