The third studio album by Swedish pop duo Roxette, Joyride was one of the last gasps of superproduced 80's soft rock in the United States. As of its April 1991 release, Joyride was state of the art pop-rock, stuffed to the brim with bells, whistles, and Rickenbackers in an ultimately successful multi-tracked bid for chart-topping glory. The title track and the Power Ballad "Fading Like A Flower" rushed the Billboard top 5, representing the pair's last major US hits before trends shifted out from underneath them, relegating them to a European Widget Series for the remainder of the decade.
