"Agnetha has always been my favorite member of ABBA. Without a doubt, it is her I watch everytime I see clips of the group performing. Over the years, so much has been written about Benny and Bjorn's composing before, during and after ABBA that no one seems to remember what a talented songwriter Agnetha was early on in her career. Arguably, her early songs were better crafted than Benny & Bjorn's early efforts like "She's My Kind Of Girl" and "Hej Gamle Man." The first disc takes us through most of her pre-ABBA days and shows just how quickly her songwriting a voice developed. If you love Agnetha's voice, I mean really love it like I do, the fact that you may not happen to speak Swedish will not impair your enjoyment of this music. Heck, after a few listens, you may even start to sing along with the chorus of "Jag Var Sa Kar!" The second disc takes us through her final Swedish solo work before ABBA took off. One highlight is the 1979 return to solo writing that she did for a compilation of her hits called "Nar Du Tar Mej I Din Famn." If she had released the English version of this song (available on "That's Me-Greatest Hits" called "The Queen Of Hearts") with slightly better lyrics, Agnetha may have had an international hit on her hands. The rest of the second disc touches on ABBA highlights, and highlights of her post ABBA solo career in the 1980's. This album made me appreciate the talent that Agnetha posesses. She remains one of my all time favorite singers. Thankfully, she may be recording a new album late in 2002, demo recordings have already been made. So if you like "My Love, My Life," you'll want to keep your eyes open for her next project!"
