From their first hit here in the US, "All That She Wants", to their newest single, "C'est La Vie (Always 21)", plus two other new songs, this CD has it all. From their 1st CD:The Sign, All That She Wants, Living In Danger, Don't Turn Around, Happy Nation, & Wheel Of Fortune. From their 2nd CD:Beautiful Life, Lucky Love, & Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry (extended club mix). From their 3rd & last all new CD released in America:Cruel Summer, Always Have Always Will, Everytime It Rains, & Life Is A Flower. This CD also has a few new tracks featured:C'est La Vie (Always 21), Hallo Hallo, & Love In December. Any serious Ace Of Base fan should seriously consider spending the extra money to import this version of the CD. The US release, lacks many of the tracks featured here, (only has 12 and 2 are remixes) and most importantly, only includes ONE of the three new tracks on this CD, "C'est La Vie (Always 21)". It even comes in a collector's box which is pretty cool.

This CD makes me depressed, not in the fact that the CD bad, quite the contrary, it is an awesome CD. But, in the fact that I know that many of Ace of Base's songs are not going to be released here in the USA. Why don't they release more eurodance over here!? My favorite song on this CD is "Love in December", it is the perfect dance song. Yet another Swedish group following in the footsteps of ABBA, and guess what? It works. This CD is full of their most popular songs-in Europe. I was pleasently surprised to find some remixes of some of the songs we have! Most notably, the "Cruel summer" mix is definitely worthy of a purchase. I had originally bought this CD because of the songs I haven't heard. "Hallo, hallo" and "Love in December". Once again, depression sets in, now, why don't they make a box set of ALL of Ace of Base's songs, surely there is a market for that (hey, big record executives, are you listening?) Well, if you don't believe me about the incredible coolness of Ace of Base, then buy this CD and fall in the warm glow of eurodance!

This CD is simply the best collection of the best pop group of the 90's. The most destacable fact is that this CD is more complete than the U.S. release which don't include the hits: "Happy Nation" , "Love In December", "Living in Danger", "Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry" nor "Hallo Hallo" which are definitely great Ace of Base songs. The first single is one of my favorite all-time pop songs. It is really worthwhile to buy it. You will not regret. :o)

as one of the (seemingly few) American fans of Ace Of Base left, I was happy to pick this cd up on ebay a few weeks ago. This album is superior to the American compilation in every way. A few of my favorite AOB hits (Living In Danger and Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry) were left off the US version. Also, this copy gets 2 more exclusive tracks that were left off the US version.
A handful of these songs are presented in the European remixes, as opposed to the American versions, and you know what? I love the Euro mixes of Cruel Summer, Lucky Love and Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry even better than the Americanized versions!
Get this cd over the US "Greatest Hits", it's a great collection of one of the best pop acts of the 90's.
