Ace Of Base - The Golden Ratio


Ace Of Base enjoy their breakthrough in Germany, currently "The Golden Ratio" is floating around German iTunes album-chart with new single "All For You" around iTunes single-chart. Next stop is whole world but before we'll need to check ourselves what new Ace Of Bace album is made of.

"All For You" - first hit of band with big chorus that introduced new combination of renewed female part vocals and new sound of band.
"Blah, Blah, Blah On The Radio" - summerish track presenting Julia's vocal with slight touch of raggae and exotic percussion.
"The Golden Ratio" - RedOne-inspired pop-track with attitude and "Poker Face" electric rhytm.
"Southern California" - piano-based pop-rock song very different from all other tracks but probably most fitting Clara's rock-friendly vocal.
"Told My Ma" - old school Ace of Base goes Lucky Twice, light and positive album-filler.
"Black Sea" - pop-track with killer beat, 90s synths in chorus and strong melody-line.
"One Day" - nostalgic track sounding exactly like the song from one of the first band's albums.
"Juliet" - soft and pleasant euro-ballad with lovely Christmas feeling.
"Precious" - massive base with keys coming along whole track and classic 90s AOB melody structure.
"Vision In Blue" - synth-breathing and trance-charming dance-track with big drums.
"Mr. Replay" - another comeback to old-school Ace Of Base with raggae-rap, "o-o-o-o" and girls in quite memorable chorus.
"Who am I" - original swaging retro-ballad sounding a bit like a poppier version of "Where The Wild Roses Grow".
"Doreen" - modern Swedish dance-pop of 00s, track that seems to be loved by almost everyone who gave this album proper listen.

Here I'm leaving you with "Making of" video from shoting "All For You", it's very interesting to see members of band live.

Thanx so much Glinta!

I see your point JPaul, just try to get it as completely new project so you'll be able to get it better :)

I love the new Ace of Base album! Especially "Precious". Listening to that song is like wading in bass-line!
