Swedish trio Peter, Bjorn and John were going to call their 7th album Thriller 2, which would have been nice. In the end they plumped for Breaking Point. In contrast to the power pop sound on their previous album Gimme Some they’ve gone for big pop songs here, influenced by the ease with which fellow Swedes Abba made it all look so easy.

4/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 June 2016
It must be tough being Peter, Bjorn or John. Every gig, every single fucking gig they are contractually obliged to do the song. People only want the song. Nothing else.    Obviously they’ve tried to combat this by writing the opener here ’Dominos’ in the style of a Eurovision entry so bad that Sweden are guaranteed nil points and therefore they will be infamous for something else. It is truly staggeringly bad. Thing is though, I’d listened to a sound clip of this album the other week and thought it was ok but the first few songs are so bad that I’m seriously thinking about an alternative career than music journalism. I could perhaps spend my time reviewing sewers …or perhaps bits of sludge. On 'Do Di Do’ they go into full on Black Lace mode. It’s a story of going on holiday (or holly day as they pronounce it) married to a dangerously jolly holly day friendly backbeat . It also contains the immortal line as "like in Eleanor Rigby, no-one was saved". Dear reader, I vomited.  ‘Breaking Point’ is the song I heard previously.It has a whistle on it just like that song and it’s still really nice taken on it’s own, however taken as part of what it comes before and after, it’s a masterpiece of 'God Only Knows' proportions.     This is a record that reminds us how bad music can actually be. It’s waaay beyond your very worst fears and the band should be applauded for making something so awful that we should all pack up, close the doors and go home. It’s the opposite musical equivalent of Hugo Sanchez bicycle kick.
