Like Arrival, I bought this first on vinyl, then on CD, then a re-mastered CD, but have not bothered with the latest digipack version. No bonus tracks were added for the re-mastered version that I bought, but the sound quality is much better.
The album begins with Eagle, which was released as a single in some countries, but not in Britain. The music certainly suggests an eagle in flight and it's a great way to start the album.
Next comes Take a chance on me, a British number one hit. Despite heavy promotion in America, it did not reach number one there, but it was their second biggest American hit ever after Dancing queen.
One man one woman is a brilliant, upbeat song that sounds good enough to have been a single but wasn't. It is followed by The name of the game, which provided Abba with another British number one.
Of the remaining songs, Thank you for the music might have been another huge British hit if it had been released in 1979, but it wasn't a single until the band finally broke up. By which time anybody who wanted the song already had it, so it was only a minor hit.
Move on, I wonder and I'm a marionette are also excellent. I'm less keen on Hole in your soul, not because there's anything wrong with it, but more because it doesn't match the exceptional quality of the other songs here.
This is one of several Abba albums that I have played many times down the years and never get tired of hearing.
