However, this outfit had one of the WORST sophomore slumps ever in music history considering the mega smash that was their debut. Their 2nd effort (1995) was a complete dud compared to their massive, enjoyable first album above (1993). Some bright spots though, 3rd time around (1998), but the magic of their debut was never replicated :(:(:(:(:(:

That's always the case with most artists, the first is always a classic, raw and creative .

There's this school of thought in the music industry that you basically have your whole life (up until its release), to write your debut album. You have 15-20+ years to cherry-pick your best content. That's one of the reasons why for some "not-so-talented artists," it will always be the best thing they ever release.

Ace of Base's Secret Nazi Past
Before he founded Ace of Base, Ulf Ekberg was a neo-Nazi skinhead. Did Ekberg use Ace of Base's success as an opportunity to erase his neo-Nazi past and rise to a position of geopolitical influence?
