Artist: Ace of Base
Ace of Base's best album is fortunately also their longest. The electronic feel of their debut album often seemed too harsh, while their later albums have suffered from too-dense instrumentation. The Bridge, in comparison, has a fresher, light and airy feel to it. Like their other albums, it was released in the US with a slightly modified track listing.
The Bridge is also the most diverse of Ace of Base's albums — the large number of tracks allowing them to flex their music-making muscles in different directions, from the disco of "Lucky Love" to the sensuous "Whispers in Blindness" to the jubliant "Beautiful Life". In just a little over an hour, the group proves far more flexible than most of today's pop acts.
It's hard to pick a favourite track. Perhaps the vulnerable angst of "Ravine".
