Frida's first English-language solo album was the Phil Collins-produced Something's Going On, released in 1982. Something's Going On reached number one on the album charts in Sweden, Norway and Belgium, the Top Ten in Australia and several European countries, and the Top 20 in Germany, Italy and Great Britain. The bonus tracks on Something's Going On are the single edit of the international hit 'I Know There's Something Going On' and Frida's solo version of 'Here We'll Stay', originally issued as a 1983 single (the album version of the song is a duet with Phil Collins). The solo version of 'Here We'll Stay' has never been released on CD before. Universal. 2005.
Frida mostly sang backup harmonies behind Agnetha in Abba: she was the group's dark side. Her clear, clean voice was fine in itself, though limited--and shorn of the songwriting team of Björn and Benny, its limits are most apparent. Something's Going On is a dreadful signifier of its time: all early-'80s, bad new-wave production and quirky drum fills, courtesy of producer Phil Collins. Other than the Russ Ballard-penned title track (which at least has a decent tune) and Rod Argent's reflective, rather sweet "Baby Don't You Cry No More," there's little of merit on Anni-Frid's first post-Abba solo album. To hear her so badly supported just makes one yearn for Abba's glory moments all the more. --Everett True --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I don't think so. If Mr. Everett had actually listened to even a few of ABBA's CDs he'd have noticed that Agnetha & Frida very often share leads on tracks. Read more
Something's Going On~ Frida is a good debut solo album. Mr Collins did a good job and produced a very descent record with many fine tunes and lyrics.Published on June 17 2004 by B. Viberg

This is Frida solo. That means it isn't going to sound like ABBA. Obviously. Granted, some of the songs are awful, but some are quite good. Read morePublished on Jan. 18 2002 by J. Walters
