Stronger is the second album by the Swedish singer and Idol-winner Agnes Carlsson. The album was released on October 11, 2006 and features 11 tracks. Two of her songs, "I Believe In You" and "I Had A Feelin'", were covered by the German band No Angels on their Destiny album. The song "Love Is All Around" has been covered in at least three other continents. The album was released in the United Kingdom, but only sold 121 copies.

Reception[edit]

"Aftonbladet"'s Markus Larsson says that Agnes is an obvious talent with a strong voice, but no one seems to know what to make out of it, not the record company, not the songwriters, not the producers, not even Agnes herself.

Helsingborgs Dagblad wrote that "Stronger" has one of every genre, a heavy ballad such as "(What do I do with) all this love", some fresh R&B such as "Kick back Relax" and a flirt with MTV "My boy" and "Everybody".
