Arrival

Oh, lord! I`ve actually listened to an Abba record that isn`t just a compilation of the best songs but an actual album. What`s my verdict? I`d rather stick to the "greatest hits" formula. On this album we get a few Abba classics - songs like "Money Money Money", "Dancing Queen" and partly "Knowing me, knowing you" deserve to be called classics of pop music. The first one of them even has some partly interesting lyrics. Then there`s "Then I Kissed the Teacher" which is about as dated as "Then He Kissed Me" (or was it "He kissed me in the way" who cares). The chorus is catchy though. Apart from that - almost nothing. This probably ain`t bad pop music but it`s too generic for me to listen to it again and again.
