CD Reviews

Even solo they are good, but not as great when they ABBA
John DePrisco | Wilmington, Delaware United States | 10/29/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Somewhere near the end of ABBA's decade long run Anni-Frid became Frida. It neither affected her wonderful singing nor the group's name. This album features solo songs by the ladies of ABBA, Angetha and Anni-Frid (or Frida if you prefer). The tracks are presented with Agnetha and Frida in alternating songs beginning and ending with Agnetha. They are all good but somehow lack a little of the quality as when they sang together. As some have already noted Agnetha's solos are of the slow variety with two exceptions: "I Won't Let You Go", which I feel is the best track on this album, and "The Heat Is On" with a calypso flavor, are more up tempo than her other tracks. Even so, her soprano voice is a pleasure to listen to. As for Frida, I always thought her songs with ABBA generated a few more goose bumps than when Agnetha sang solo with Frida providing some backup. This album clearly shows the reason why. Her solo performances on this album are great. As history has shown neither had the same strong career as when they were together as ABBA. But this album displays their individual solo talents and is well worth having."
Different But Good

"I guess I was expecting the "ABBA" sound when I bought this and it took a few times through to begin to appreciate the songs for themselves. The singing styles are a bit different than what you might expect, but the voices are there. Bottom line is that these two ladies can flat out sing. I noticed that other reviewers seem to prefer one over the other and that's fine. Remember though, that without one or the other they wouldn't have been ABBA to begin with. Each brings a certain flavor to this disc and I am enjoying it. If you were (and still are) an ABBA fan, this CD is well worth a listen. Just be prepared to give it time to grow on you. You'll be happy you did."
OK but I expected more

"I've read what the other reviewers had to say before beginning my
own. I personally like the slower songs better than the faster
because I feel you can get more from their voices that way.
I really didn't care as much for the "bouncy" styles but did like most
of the ballads. I agree with Big John in that after several listenings
I began to like the CD more than I initially did.
All in all I prefer their voices when they sing together. I think
that if they had done that on these recordings that they would have sold
thousands more. They shouldn't have named this CD "the Voice Of ABBA"
because it has very little to do with the ABBA sounds.
