 Ace of Base : Flowers - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
For example, "Donnie," a gem of a track which should have been a hit, is somewhat under-produced and unrealized on Flowers but truly shines on Cruel Summer, and other tracks, such as "He Decides," also appear as earlier mixes on Flowers.
Three tracks appear on Flowers that aren't on Cruel Summer, and those are "Dr. Sun," "I Pray," and the melancholy "Captain Nemo," while Cruel Summer's ballad "Everytime It Rains" doesn't appear on Flowers.
Finally, the bonus mix of the single "Cruel Summer" is arguably superior on Flowers than on Cruel Summer, but in the long run, the production on Cruel Summer is meatier than on Flowers.

 Ace of Base : Cruel Summer - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Cruel Summer, their third album, attempts to capture the carefree, stylish charm that drove "All That She Wants" and "The Sign" to the top of the charts, and while it has its moments, it fails to rival their previous pop pinnacles.
It's a little disappointing that the melodic high point is the title track, a cover of Bananarama's new wave classic.
Also, it's a little disappointing that Ace of Base haven't chosen to vary their Euro-disco rhythms, since the relentless thumping makes Cruel Summer sound a little too similar its predecessors -- only without as many hooks.

 Bananarama
While their fashion sense (somewhere between "Lucky Star" Madonna and thrift store Cyndi Lauper) was undoubtedly eighties, the phenomenon of a female vocal trio had been almost unheard of since the 1950s.
The simplicity and frivolity of such songs as "Cruel Summer" and "Robert DeNiro's Waiting" also echo the '50s, but the '50s comparisons are not a rare phenomenon in the '80s; recall that the Stray Cats and the beehive-sporting B-52s were making music at the same time.
While the idea may have been fresh in the '80s, there is no shortage of male and female vocal outfits (most of whom can't play a lick) in the '90s, which may explain Bananarama's gradual drift into pop music obscurity.
