Ace of Base - The Ultimate Collection?
Ace of Base has released an Ultimate Collection? Sure, back in the early 1990s, they saw "The Sign." The sang "All That She Wants" and "Don't Turn Around." Later, they even covered Bananarama's "Cruel Summer." But does that merit an Ultimate Collection? Now, Ace of Base hails from Sweden, and perhaps it's possible that in their native country they are far, far more popular than they ever were in the United States and worthy of an Ultimate Collection in that nation. But a 3-CD collection? I think not, especially not here in the States. Oh, well.
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
