The Sign

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Ace of Base's strong point is not versatility -- all of their hit singles have exactly the same beat. But that doesn't matter. On their debut album, The Sign, they managed to create a piece of melodic Euro-disco that was a huge hit all over the world, appealing to both dance clubs and pop radio. And with singles like "All That She Wants," "The Sign," and "Don't Turn Around," it's easy to see why they were hits -- the beat is relentless and the hooks are incessantly catchy.

    Dance Music At Its Best

    When i was a kid, I did not have alot of things but one thing that i could say that i had (and still Have) is Ace Of Base: The Sign. And I Am Proud to say that i have grown up with this cd. i was 6 years old when i had the album and I am now 18 years old and i am still listening to this cd. I never grew out of my youth and never going to.

    The Sign

    I really liked this CD. I know it is really old, but it has some real fling to it. That is why it is my favorite CD. Have A Great Day!

    Excellent from start to finish!

    This is a great album and Ace of Base's best. Almost all of their hits are here, and it's not even a greatest hits compilation! Songs include ''All That She Wants'', ''Don't Turn Around'', ''The Sign'' and ''Young and Proud''. The music is first-rate and the vocals are wonderful. This is a terrific album that will fit into any music collection! Purchase yours today!

    'THE SIGN' OF THE TIMES

    I am proud to have a casstte edition of Ace of Base's first album, THE SIGN (1993). That album contained at least three Top Ten hits: ALL THAT SHE WANTS, DON'T TURN AROUND and--the title song--THE SIGN. I really enjoyed listening to it--and, yes, I would definitely recommend it to any other top-40 fan!
