    How unfortunate. I think their biggest song was a rip off of Bannarama's "Crule Summer". Ok, so I'm not a fan, it's just me.

    Don't think they can beat their old stuff.

    Ace of Base is not my thing, but does anyone know why they scrapped the two "old" broads (nearly approaching 40, oh my!), and replaced them with young chix?

    On the surface it looks like yet another sexist double-standard, because, you know, women can't be sex symbols after 30. And if they're generating saccharine dance-pop, they sure as well have barely just gone through puberty. Anyway, this surface observation makes me even less inclined to care anything about them.

    Oh thanks for this.

    But I wont be so keen on this new album.

    It is so disappointing for me. At least Ace of Base seemed like a well grounded group. Apparently, the two boys succumbed to the label of getting another girl when Jenny was around? I totally respect her for quiting for whatever reasons.

    Something very fishy going on here, inspite of the three Berggrens being siblings. To me, Linn and Jenny were the voices of the group and the presence of these two younger girls (however hot or talented) will never work for me. Glad they are back. But it's so not cool.

    I am not ready for this change. Someone please call and bring Linn and Jenny back!icon_cry.gif

    i thought they were already back. I'm pretty sure they can be heard in the background of that Alejandro song from gaga

    Linn never really wanted all the fame, and after the first album it took some convincing to get her to stay with the group. In part this was due to a stocker that broke into her home and scared the hell out of her.

    Jenny, has moved on she wants a solo career. Not that she turned her back on AoB more that her style of music taste evolved into something other than that of AoB. She is perusing her own label.

    That leaves the other two guys Ulf and Joker, they've never stopper wanting to do more albums, but they have all gone through the "family" phase and now that they are ready to return they don't want to loose the AoB name for the band. Even though they had talked about a new name it is stupid to toss out that brand name. Of course they have the blessing of Jenny and Linn to carry on the band and this album has been in the works for nearly 5 years. I'm sure it will be awesome now that they aren't under the previous record company dictating what they should sound like. It should be more like the first album that they are really well known for.

    I'd consider myself to be a huge AoB fan with import versions of all their albums and nearly every single; they have been and always will be my favorite band I'm sure. Thanks for the link to the new single it made my day. icon_smile.gif
