    Thanks ABBA for the Great Music!, June 9, 2000
    By A Customer
    This review is from: ABBA: Forever Gold (Audio CD)
    This two CD compilation is just awesome! I listened to the first CD for a month, so I can absorb their great hits such as my favorites, “One of Us”, “Does Your Mother Know”, “S.O.S”.
    A month later, I gave the second CD a try. I was unprepared for the most excellent music I have ever heard! I regretted not getting this CD earlier for they got some great songs such as “I am the City”, the too-cool-for-you “On & On & On”, and the song that was way ahead of its time, “Under Attack”, which would outchart today’s pop hits if given the chance. The very musical “I Wonder (Departure)”, sounds like something Julie Andrews would sing– except the ABBA ladies put some great singing talent in to that one.
    I not only reccommend this collection, but I recommend the second CD, “More ABBA Hits”. If that CD doesn’t knock your socks off, nothing will.

    Amazing compilation with both hits and little-known gems!, January 3, 2001

    This review is from: ABBA: Forever Gold (Audio CD)
    I figure most people have heard most of the tracks on CD 1. Songs like “Dancing Queen”, “S.O.S.”, “The Winner Takes It All” and “Waterloo” are classics EVERYWHERE. Some of the better tracks on CD 1, however, aren’t that well known. “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” sounds suspiciously like the eurodance genre of the 90s and still sounds amazingly current. “Does Your Mother Know” is a straight out disco-rocker that features the guys on lead vocals! And “Super Trouper” has some sweet harmonies in the chorus. Disc 2 are where the real unknown gems come into play. The 60s influenced “I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do” and “On & On & On” will get you singing and dancing. The more electronic songs like the never-before released (except on “More ABBA Gold”) “I Am The City”, “Under Attack”, and “The Visitors” will fill the dance floor. And some of the ballads, like “I Wonder (Departure)” and “Our Last Summer” are simply beautiful. This is highly recommended for any CD collection.

    Who Wants To Be A Billionaire?, February 12, 2000

    This review is from: ABBA: Forever Gold (Audio CD)
    I’ve recently heard that ABBA turned down a billion dollars for a 100-date tour. Having seen ABBA in concert, and having a particular dislike for this collection, “Forever Gold,” I felt compelled to chime in with a review.If you’re long-time fan, and have a decent ABBA collection, you’ve little reason to own – or to recommend – this repackage of “Gold,” and (now deleted) “More ABBA Gold” to the casual fan, as you’ve hopefully gone all the way with the remasters, the box set, and perhaps, even the limited edition of “The Singles 1972-1982.”For the afficionado merely seeking an ABBA package, there’s way too much extraneous material here, it’s not in chronological order, and the sound quality of the remasters leaves this one in the dust. But, if one simply must have a reasonably-priced, inclusive ABBA hits collection, right here and now, there’s not much choice.The consumate overview for the curious listener is the unfortunately deleted, “The Singles: The First Ten Years.” Barring the re-appearance of said title, rest assured there’ll be many more ABBA compilations during our respective lifetimes, as ABBA was one of the most popular – and one of the best – pop bands in the history of recorded music.
