  Ace of Base - Biography - AOL Music
Ace of Base's simple, melodic Euro-disco was equally popular on radio and in the clubs, earning the quartet three U.S. Top Ten singles -- "All That She Wants," "Don't Turn Around," and "The Sign," which spent six weeks at number one.
Throughout 1994, Ace of Base dominated radio in America and Europe as "All That She Wants," "Don't Turn Around," and "The Sign" received heavy airplay on a number of radio formats, including Top 40, adult contemporary, urban, and, bizarrely, modern rock.
Ace of Base released their second album, The Bridge, in the fall of 1995.

  Greatest Hits (Ace of Base album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Greatest Hits is the name of a compilation album of Ace of Base, a pop music group based in Sweden.
It was released in 2000 in the United States, while Singles of the 90s, an album containing new material, was released in Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Consumers, when deciding between the two albums, chose Singles of the 90s, and Greatest Hits sold poorly indeed: it was the first U.S. Ace of Base album to fail to even enter the U.S. Hot 200 Album list.

The future of the swedish Ace of Base starts today, and the project of their new studio album is seen as the continuation of a successful band life which history will be condensed in a final greatest hits.
Ace of Base is Jonas "Joker" Petter Berggren, his sisters Malin Sofia Katarina, known as Linn and Jenny Cecilia together with Ulf "Buddha" Gunnar Ekberg.

 Ace of Base - ExampleProblems.com
Ace of Base is a Swedish dance/pop band that consists of Jonas Berggren (Joker), Ulf Ekberg (Buddha), Linn Berggren and Jenny Berggren; the three Berggrens are siblings.
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.

 Ace of Base News & Reviews
We felt that it would be a hit in Scandinavia, but I ever expected it to work in Europe, or especially the States." In fact, Ace Of BaseÕs debut album The Sign has sold over 9 million copies in the U.S. to date.
With the act's inspired interpretation of Bananarama's "Cruel Summer," Ace of Base deftly widened the creative scope of the '80s-era anthem by revising it with a firm '90s-style funk beat and a swirl of ear-tickling harmonies that deepen the song's chorus.
Although "Cruel Summer" introduces the album with a tone of warm familiarity, the project ultimately blossoms into a formidable showcase for the group's notable growth as tunesmiths in their own right.

Ace reached a top 20 hit with the single `new york groove` but it isnt only that song that made his solo album great its his effort and the combinasion of great songs he did.He really did what he wanted here,a great rock album.But back until `love gun`Ace didnt sing.
Hopefully Ace will put out his new studio solo record in the near future,and if you miss the days from when Ace was still with KISS and happen to be one of the several guitarists out there who was inspired to play guitar by Ace himself,this CD will serve as a nice treat for you.
Ace's guitar work on the Kiss songs included here are not quite up to to par with the recordings on "Alive!" and "Alive II" (if you do not have the remastered versions of the first 2 "Alive" albums definitely get those first).

Not that their last album wasn't good, but it felt like a lot of filler thrown around a few very good songs, and clearly wasn't up to the level of their first two releases.
Properly promoted, "Da Capo" could have been an enormous hit, as the album is vastly superior to the majority of pop music that's was released at the time and since.
I also own their three previous albums and I think all the best songs are contained on this CD (although there were more good songs on "The Bridge" than these three).

Ace of Base's sound, at the end of the day, is pretty limited -- somewhat flat keyboards, reggae beats, reserved vocals, droning beats, catchy but unenduring.
"All That She Wants" should've been the major hit; it's the one Ace of Base song that holds up to repeated listens, thanks to a less chirpy lyrical theme than usual and a woodwind line as an unusual hook (or keyboard-simulated?).
Of the other two hit singles, "The Sign" sounds nice on first listen with both Jenny and Linn joining in on verses, but sounds awfully repetitive and juvenile after a while.

Ace of Base's sugary pop should have come with an expiration date.
There was a time once -- I think it was the summer of '93, or perhaps the spring of '94 -- when you couldn't walk through a nightlife district in Europe without hearing the brassy intro to Ace of Base's "All That She Wants" rippling out of a club or two.
Like most of the tracks on that first album, "The Sign," it was as light as cotton candy, lyrically vague and completely addictive.

They are about to re-enter the studio in order to record a sixth album which will be released in 2005.
The evidence for this album's existence seems somewhat controversial: no clips of any of the songs on this album have ever surfaced (clips of 'Hear Me Calling' come from the 'Happy Nation' album, not 'Ce Soir', and clips of 'Young and Proud' don't match the supposed tracklist length for the 'Ce Soir' album).
