Overview

Greatest Hits [Arista]

Homer Simpson would be able to review this greatest hits collection with total conciseness, saying something like this: "Aaaaah! (drool) Sweet, sweet candy." And while there's absolutely no nutritional value to the 16 songs presented here, the glossy, sugary tones are positively addictive in their across-the-board tastiness. All of the Swedish quartet's chart-topping stateside hits are compiled here -- from the bright 'n' breezy "The Sign" to the slightly more subdued "All That She Wants" -- along with a smattering of singles that had more success on the other side of the pond, including a cover of Bananarama's "Cruel Summer." The nicely packaged set does more than just take a look back, however: Along with the new single, "Everytime It Rains," it includes a brace of remixes by dance floor mavens Frankie Knuckles and Junior Vasquez. Definitely a winning hand.

When I saw for 1st time that record I though. What?! greatest hits? ACE OF BASE didn't enough hits to the EEUU for a compilation! But yes, they had enough european hits across the 90s. Because of that I really prefer the european ACE OF BASE greatest hits (called ''Singles of the 90s'') 'coz that have more songs. Anyway, the Greatest Hits are really good. Song after song cames sweeter and catchy than the last. Songs as 'The Sign', 'All That She Wants' or 'Beautiful Life' can bring you an idea of how is all the compilation. Excepcional. That band is one of the best 90s band.

    I initially heard of Ace of Base back in the 90’s since some of their songs were played on the radio.  I purchased this “Greatest Hits” by Ace of Base back in July 2007 when I was residing on the Mayport Naval base (near Atlantic Beach, Florida). “All That She Wants”, “The Sign”, “Beautiful Life”, “Don’t Turn Around”,  and “Lucky Love” are some of the enjoyable hits  available on this collection.  I admit to “Beautiful Life” and “Lucky Love” as being among my favorites in this collection. “Greatest Hits” by Ace of Base symbolizes carefree and lighthearted dance/pop music from the 90’s.
