Best of the 90s pop
on 27 June 2004
If you are only vaguely familiar with this extraordinary group, I advise you to either buy this best of package or their first album, Happy Nation. This album is a small compilation of the best dance music of the 90s and there is never a dull moment throught the 16 songs.
Ace Of Base are a "Swedish pop-reggae outfit comprising three Berggren family members, Linn(v), Jenny(v), Jonas "Joker"(k) and Ulf "Buddha" Ekberg(k) all from Gothenburg. Only Swedish act to top the US album chart with "The Sign"-titled "Happy Nation" outside US) in 1994."
They are of course much more with 100 weeks on UK singles chart and a #1 album HN. Their biggest hits are All That She Wants (#1 in the UK), The Sign (UK#2, US#1), Don't Turn Around (UK #5), Life Is a Flower (UK #5), Cruel Summer (UK #8) and so on (12 UK hit singles).
This album bring the best from their first three albums; Happy Nation (AKA The Sign), The Bridge, The Flowers. It also includes two new songs: C'est La Vie (bad one) and Love In December (great one). More or less, this album is important because it actually contains shorter, single versions of their best-known compositions. You can't miss it in the shops under the letter A: the case is transarent & blue!
I bet you'll keep repeating this one! One of the best Greatest hits in the market!
