 Ace of Base - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ace Of Base is a Swedish dance/pop band that consists of Ulf Ekberg (Buddha), and siblings Jonas Berggren (Joker), Linn Berggren and Jenny Berggren.
In Ace of Base's later music, the pace of the songs tends to be moderate, with more of the interest sometimes coming from the melody and the orchestration rather than the rhythm.
Ace of Base's earlier songs were often a bit faster paced, but this change was not entirely unusual — the band has abruptly changed styles of music on several occasions.

Flowers is the original version of Ace of Base's third album, which in the U.S. became Cruel Summer.
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.

As a longtime fan in the US, I'm used to seeing only negative attention regarding Ace of Base and I'm glad to see that you have finally seen the light as it were and been able to enjoy this new album.

 Bridge by Ace Of Base CD
No stylistic breakthroughs, no daring rushes to the edge of pop's sphere, no deep personal outpourings--just delectable beats and undeniable hooks that apply thinner to Abba's wall-of-sound disco, and then filter it through the modern dance world of reggae, hip-hop, techno and Madonna.
Besides a couple of forays into Middle Eastern melody and the occasional nod to the Beatles (note the acoustic guitar break in "Lucky Love [Acoustic Version]," the electric version of which shows up only on the European pressing of the album), THE BRIDGE's main pleasure is its off-kilter lyrical musings.
Ace of Base manages to sound completely different from all the poppish-music that's been going on since 1990.
