I did a search for "ace base" and found 5 threads, 3 of which dealt with "the crummiest bands of the 90s," "the most over played songs of all times," and "cds you are embarrased to own." So I guess they are generally looed down upon (they were even kind of made fun of in a South Park episode (the one where the find the frozen guy from 1996 ) So, I thought this band needed a thread showing them a little love here on HTF. Well, I know Ace of base is probably considered a has been or never was, but this import CD, "Da Capo," IMHO is brilliant. There is not one single stinker on the CD. I really liked the albums "The Sign" and "The Bridge" but was really dissapointed with "Cruel Summer" to the point I almost gave up on them. But I saw this import and took a chance on it and I just simply cannot turn it off. All the songs get a 5+ out of 5 form me with the exception of the title track which would still be a stoundout on a lot of other CDs but is just average here. It seems every day I think I will be playing the same song for the rest of my life but get hooked on a new one each day. yesterday it was "Ordinary Life." Today it is "Hey Darling." I am really not much of a reviewer but if you are at all a fan of the pop/techno/dance genre, please give this a listen. It is a tad pricey being an import but I swear this is my desert Island CD. Really amazing stuff.
