Review: Ace of Base – All That She Wants (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Ace of Base – All That She Wants.

This track was released in 1993 on the album The Sign.

The track starts off with a melody and parts of a drum kit. From there, some brass comes in and the vocals take the track into the first verse. There’s some whistling that breaks the track up before the vocals continue.

From there, the vocals take the track into the first round in the main chorus. Some reggae keys also play through this. This section is capped off with an instrumental section.

After that, the vocals take the track into the next verse. This doesn’t last that long as the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. This is capped off with an instrumental section that contains a synth element.

From there, the vocals then repeat the main chorus. The difference is that there is a secondary melody. After that, the track fades out during an instrumental section.

My first reaction when I heard this track is, “Well, that just happened.”

The vocals sound like they are trying to be catchy. In the end, the lyrics just makes the track seem a bit odd.

Adding to the peculiarity is the choice of instruments to back it. There’s some wood-wind like instruments along with some reggae style keys. The end product didn’t really turn out in my view. There just isn’t anything in here that makes this track stand out.

Overall, this is a rather weird track. It has vocals with lyrics that try to be catchy. Unfortunately, they just wind up being weird. The instruments are also an odd combination that makes this track seem that much more odd. So, a track that may be passable, but nothing much more then that.

Score
6/10
