  1. I cannot believe that I have been able to go to the shop, buy an ABBA CD and have the experience of listening to a brand new ABBA record for the first (and probably last) time. What a gift.

  3. So … this is absolute perfection and a perfect end to their story.. I just got so emotional listening to this album, thinking of how ABBA saved my life as a child sitting in my bedroom in a small German town, dreaming of a different life, hoping that one day my life might be like an ABBA song (just like Muriel, in fact ! ).. I was dreaming of moving to London, and Paris, away from the nastiness and bullying and intolerance.. and now I’m sitting here, 40 years later, in Paris .. thinking that in fact ABBA has saved my life in so many ways, giving me hope, making me believe that life can be everything you want it to be and that YES music can save our lives, give us hope and strength.
    And this album is just so perfect in so many ways ..
    anyway, too emotional for words right now so will come back later ! But yes I’m just so happy we have this album in our lives now

    My contrarian opinion of the week is that Little Things is one of the album’s best. It 100% captures the Christmas spirit you remember as a kid but can never quite access as an adult. I can totally see it becoming a yearly streaming hit.
     
  5. Little Things is now (on my fourth listen) the only song I'm not feeling. It's fine but when the children appear I hit skip.

    Some of y'all about to be real mad at me, but it must be said: Just a Notion is absolutely brilliant. Only Don't Shut Me Down and Keep an Eye on Dan reach that level of classic ABBA.
     
  6. Aww, this is so, so lovely. Enjoy this truly amazing moment!

  7. It’s so, so beautiful. Their voices are beyond gorgeous and the song takes tiny little unexpected shifts that only Benny is capable of. Achingly beautiful.

  8. Thinking Ed Sheeran burnt the factory down to stop them being able to ship and get a number one.

  9. Grabbed my Target version of the vinyl on my lunch break. I also must of just played Keep An Eye On Dan about 10 times in a row.

  10. Someone better tell Bjorn that they’re running a Mamma Mia The Party at the pressing plant this week - get him to pay overtime to ship these damn charred records.

  14. Just got my yellow vinyl from Target, and it has the smallest spot of black on it. Of course. Will it impact the music and my enjoyment of the new songs? No. Will it be pestering me from the back of my mind every time I play it? You know it.

  16. I don’t understand why people are underwhelmed by this album. It’s an ABBA album in 2021.

    Is it a groundbreaking album? No.

    Was it going to be groundbreaking after a 40-year break? Probably not.

    Is it what an ABBA album would sound like in 2021? Yes.

    Regardless, is it amazing to have new ABBA music? Absolutely.

  17. Don’t you dare manifest Me And Bobby And Bobby’s Brother for Mamma Mia 3! I won’t have it!

  18. I shouldn’t really have dared to manifest Mamma Mia 3 to be honest.
     
  19. Perfectly put and well said.

  20. I said it earlier today but if we don’t get Cher belting out Don’t Shut Me Down it will be homophobic in the extreme! Plus I loved Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again.
