The Winner's Gonna Take It All: The ABBA Discography Rate. #6

    'I've often wondered how did it all start... Who found out that nothing can capture a heart like a melody can...'
    - Agnetha Fältskog in Thank You for the Music -

    Two couples.

    A love for each other.

    A love of pure pop music.

    That's what started their journey. In the early '70s Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad started performing together as a quartet and the rest is history.

    They became one of the most commercially successful acts to come from Sweden ever. They topped the charts worldwide for 8 years after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974. Bjorn and Benny were very much the creative forces behind the band, having the knack for creating a fucking fantastic melody and constantly perfecting their songwriting and experimenting with vocal arrangements. And that's where the girls came in. Agnetha's soprano and Frida's mezzo-soprano voices sounded so beautifully together and lent themselves so wonderfully to the type of music the boys were creating.

    Together they made magic.

    And that's what we're celebrating here today. 8 albums. 102 songs.

    But first:
    - You are to rate every song included in the rate, extras and all.
    - You are to rate every song with a score from 0-10. Half marks are allowed.
    - You're allowed to give one song that elusive 11.
    - Commentary is welcomed and highly encouraged!
    - Rate your 'best version' of the tracks. I really don't fucking care which version of Ring Ring you love the best, which language version of Waterloo you like rather than the other or what extended version of Voulez-Vous is the one.
    - We're not rating unreleased demos, snippets, Swedish rarities or ABBA Undeleted. That's final and you will all deal.

    Them's the rules.

    Our first album to fall is the much maligned Ring Ring. The fact that most of these songs fell before we even reached the top 80 should have given you a fair warning that this would be the album with the lowest average here.

    I have repeated time and time again when we were cutting these songs that this is an album recorded by a group of four people who were or had had success, be it as part of a group or solo. Björn had been part of a group called The Hootenanny Singers, Benny was part of the band Hep Stars and Agnetha and Frida had been recording music from a young age with varying degrees of success.

    Benny and Björn decided to form a duo and had already released a couple of singles (among them She's My Kind Of Girl, En Karusell, which was the Swedish version of Merry-Go-Round and Rock'n Roll Band, yet that version was a bit different to the one we're used to), but it wasn't until they decided to record People Need Love that their manager Stig Anderson suggested the boys could enlist the vocal help from both of their fiancées.

    ABBA as we know them were not even considered a thing at the time.

    Yet, the rest is history...

    The album was only officially released in 1973 in Scandinavia and several parts of Europe such as Germany, Austria, The Netherlands and Belgium, where it was their first chart-topper too.
    Australia and New Zealand got it in 1975, but it wasn't until 1992 that it was released in the United Kingdom and it took up until 1995 to be leashed upon the American public...

    You do have to keep in mind that the musical climate was very different at the time. Schlager music was the thing back then and was largely considered pop music. Hence the light and sometimes childish nature of some of these songs, which is a big part of why some of you couldn't give out a lot of high scores. Their later songs were very complex and in stark contrast with some of the songs on display here.
    Pair that with the fact that the general focus was not on the girls' voices, as Benny and Björn were very much trying to be the stars of this project, with the girls playing second fiddle and most of you aren't here even for male pop stars with good voices, let alone those with awful voices...

    Is it their worst album? Yes.
    Is it a bad album per sé? Certain opinions beg to differ.

    I'd strongly suggest you all listen to it with new ears and maybe go back into our countdown to follow along. Who knows... Maybe you'll find a hidden gem somewhere or a song you would never have given the light of day after hearing it for the first time when scoring these songs.

    Our second album to fall is their first to be released internationally under the guise of ABBA and wel... their second overall. Seeing it lose almost half of its songs before we hit the top 85 was heartbreaking, but hey... It and Ring Ring actually put up a fight against each other with the latter eventually losing and getting cut as the album y'all like the least...

    Recording sessions for the album began in September 1973 and didn't end until February the year after, two weeks before the album was to be released. It was actually a surprise to me too that the songs that were written during the first weeks of recording are the ones on the second part of album... Songs like Waterloo, Hasta Manaña (which were both written after the group had gotten news of their participation in Melodifestivalen) and Honey, Honey were all only completed at the beginning of 1974.

    Björn went on to sing on a lot of these tracks, still thinking he could be a legit rockstar (cases in point: Watch Out and King Kong Song), the girls each had solo songs, yet still appeared in harmony on others and this album has the only song to be lead by Benny in the form of Suzy-Hang-Around.

    It was eventually released on 4 March 1974, a month before they won the Eurovision Song Contest. It became a chart-topper in their native Sweden and Norway, was a top 10 album in Germany, yet kinda failed to set the charts alight elsewhere... It did, however, reach no. 28 in the United Kingdom, where they were the first Eurovision act to actually chart up until then.

    I'm relistening to the album right now and it actually is a strong package of songs... Yet, I do agree that maybe this album kinda pales in comparison to their later albums that actually had well-though out campaigns. Waterloo's more a collection of songs that Benny and Björn thought would sound good internationally. Hence the rock songs, pop songs, schlagers and reggae-tinted songs all put together.

    Just put your mind on hold and listen again without prejudice.
    I certainly wasn't disappointed.

    The third album to fall is the band's fifth and also their shortest, released as the tie-in to ABBA: The Movie, hence the name... It was recorded during most of 1977, which was the height of ABBA-mania and saw the band travel the world promoting their brand, filming a movie (most of that time the band members weren't even aware they were filming one) while on the road in Australia and were heading out on their first ever world tour.

    Most fans look at The Album as their least inspired, yet most progressive album in their discography... The band were at the height of their succes (there literally was no one as popular around the world as them) and while the girls were gaining popularity in magazines and sporting every latest fashion and hairstyle available, the boys tried to progress their sound when their ambition started to develop into more than just wanting to craft catchy pop songs... The arrangements and production of the songs were intrinsically more complicated than on their previous albums and (let's put the gloompop of The Visitors aside for a sec) The Album is probably the most serious record in their catalogue.

    The release of the album wasn't without its difficulties either...
    Audio-wise: Side A on the original LP release is known for having been sourced from a poor quality master tape, which affected the first four songs. The songs that were released as singles (The Name of the Game, Take a Chance on Me and Eagle) were ultimately remastered for their single treatment by their sound engineer Michael B. Tretow, yet it took up until the 1997 re-issues for the rest to be fully remastered...
    Release-wise: The album was first released in Scandinavia on 12 December 1977, but didn't come out in the United Kingdom until January 1978, due to the massive pre-orders, as the UK pressing plants were not able to press sufficient copies before Christmas 1977.

    It was a fucking massive commercial triumph though. It reached no. 1 in most territories, like Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, South Africa, Mexico and their native Sweden and also debuted at the top of the UK charts and stayed there for seven weeks straight and ended up being the third best selling album of 1978 (behind Saturday Night Fever and Grease).
    It was also their biggest commercial succes in the United States, reaching no. 14 on the Billboard Hot 200, while also reaching the top 10 in Canada, Germany, Japan and Poland...

    With I Wonder (Departure) being the first song to fall after we had already lost fourty-ish songs and Take a Chance on Me rightfully taking it into the top 10, there's no denying this album has a place in your hearts and is the sound of a band at the height of their success, yet the boys' ambitions to make more complicated sounding songs and 'art'-ing it up in places let it down in places...

    But as I'm listening to it while doing this write-up, I simply can't resist those wonderfully crafted melodies by Benny and Björn and the fantastic voices and harmonies of Agnetha and Frida, giving it their all...

    All four of them had fully developed into the stars they deserved to be.

    The words have fallen several times during our countdown...
    Gloompop masterpiece.
    And that's exactly how I would describe the record as a whole.

    In 1980, after the release of the Super Trouper album, tensions between the four of them were extremely strained, what with Björn and Agnetha finalizing their divorce, starting to adjust to living life on their own and Benny and Frida filing for divorce, with Benny quickly moving on, leaving Frida a broken woman who was distancing herself further from the other members as time passed... These personal tensions made their musical and professional relationship a lot more difficult and all four members have been vocal ever since about the atmosphere in the studio while recording The Visitors being cold and distant.

    The music Benny and Björn were writing for the album took on a more serious approach too. Not only divorce, isolation, loneliness and heartship were the topics du jour... No, a subject as heavy as the Cold War was a running theme throughout some of the songs. This coming from the band who brought us Bang-a-Boomerang and Dum Dum Diddle...
    And whereas the band previously had a collection of songs to choose from for the tracklistings to their earlier albums, this time they had nine songs, which were all featured on the album...

    Recording sessions for the album weren't without their technical issues either. The Visitors was the first album to be pressed on the new CD format in 1982 and ABBA's sound engineer Michael B. Tretow had to become accustomed to using the new 32-track digital recorder that was used to mix the songs digitally, which made it difficult for him to not get a difference in quality between them.

    It was eventually released in November 1981 to critical acclaim, but the public seemed to have quietly given up on the band... It was nowhere near a flop, as the album reached the top spot in Belgium, The Netherlands, Norway, their native Sweden and the United Kingdom, yet sales figures, when compared to their previous albums, were lacklustre.
    Pair that with the fact that there was almost no promotion for the album or the individual songs that were released as singles and all four members quietly seeking other means to express themselves and you get why the general public had somewhat lost interest. Together with their professional relationship their commercial star was fading too...

    What we're left with a is a very heavy album, a certain sadness constantly bubbling under songs that are dressed up as bops, with more ambition and technicality than on any of their previous efforts and a record that was a fucking risk of epic proportions from a band that had once been written off as camp, cheesy one-hit wonders.

    And although it's the most mature, grown-up album they ever released, fourteen year old me got all the fucking feels he never knew he needed when listening to it for the first time way back when...

    I suggest you all listen to it again. Pour yourself a glass of wine, sit down and just listen...
    Let the music speak for itself and enjoy.

  9. Should i finally branch out from GOLD and More Gold for this? I've been meaning to delve into their catalogue for years.
     
  10. Oh wow that's a lot of songs. I'm tragically only familiar with the (More) GOLD material, but I want to use this as an opportunity to dig deeper!

  14. Oh my days, I must do this! I don't know their discography much outside of the singles so this would be perfect for me to discover some gems. Make sure I do it. Can you do a PM friendly list of all the tracks included please @Remorque?

  15. I've been anticipating this rate so badly you have no idea. I've been a fan of ABBA since I was 3 or 4 years old, so I'm gonna have a blast (from the past) listening through their entire discography again.
