Album Review

Consistently written off as ABBA wannabes and subpar pop poseurs, Ace of Base actually wrote some of the best pop songs of the '90s. Though the vocals were never up to par with even the least accomplished singers and the production was often sparse, the hooks in most of their cuts are irresistible. From their stateside breakthrough hit "All That She Wants" and their biggest single, "The Sign," and through their Top Ten "Beautiful Life" and the remake of "Cruel Summer," this compilation covers the best of their material. But with the addition of the poetic "Everytime It Rains," the pretty "Lucky in Love," the '50s throwback "Always Have, Always Will," the acoustic "Life Is a Flower," and the young-at-heart "C'est la Vie Always 21," you can see that much of what didn't hit big in the U.S. was some of the band's best work. As often happens with pop acts, once they begin to grow as artists, their fan base shrivels, which is exactly what happened with Ace of Base. With this album, though, you can see that when they matured they actually hit their stride.

Customer Reviews

One of the most important pop acts in history!

Ace of Base laid the foundation for writing the modern pop song. They set the bar so high that nearly no one has been able to come close to achieving the consistent quality and originality they have so effortlessly now for more than 16 years, thus the reason they still hold the record for the biggest selling debut album from a band in history. Fronted by vocalists, Linn Berggren (known for her deep vocals and subtle yodel), and sister, Jenny Berggren. Ace of Base wrote and produced the majority of their material and are the main makers of their all too well known hit singles. They put producer Max Martin on the map when they worked with him on their second album, The Bridge, back in 1995. Thankfully, iTunes has released all their original albums in their entirety up for sale. Unfortunately, as happens with many bands, American corporate heads forced artists to make changes to their work in order to sell to the American market. In Ace of Base's case, to make it less-Swedish. Thanks to globalization, the band is now able to present their work in its original form! Greatest Hits is a great package for any serious fan, and somewhat fan, to enjoy and fully experience the group's best work. Be sure to check out the remix packages on iTunes as well. Ace of Base's music has been remixed by some of the most legendary djs in the world. 5 stars! Viva la Base!
