5.0 out of 5 stars Something's Going On CD Sept. 25 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Brilliant older collection of songs.. bit maudlin, nonetheless still sung so well with great lyrics accompanied by great musical score sheets. The Album personifies Frida's life- seems very true and heartfelt. This is, in my opinion, better than Abba; less "popish"...

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD ALBUM July 19 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is nothing like an Abba album, and a bit of a surprise, as Frida rocks on some of the songs. At first I was unsure whether to buy this, as solo albums are usually never as good as the group albums. But I am glad I did. Standout tracks are "I see red", "Baby don't you cry no more", "Here we'll stay" and "I know there's something going on". But other tracks like "Tell me it's over", "I got something" and "The Way you Do" are good too. Phil Collins did a good job with the production, and Frida did a great job with the songs. BUY IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful music! Dec 31 2005
Format:Audio CD
The album "Something's Going On" is an extremely powerful album. Each song is unique in its own way, weather it be the great different music and beat each song has to offer, or the strong lyrics which Frida sings out loud. The music she produced in this album is loud, powerful and has a great beat, especially "I know there's something going on". The words of her songs just want to make you sing along with her. As Frida herself said in 1982 when this album came out: "Something's Going On. My first solo album outside of ABBA. Just listen to it!" -Frida

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Second Fidlle Sept. 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Second Fiddle?
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. The remainder are usually evenly split between them (Agnetha singing lead on 2 songs, Frida doing the same)
Frida's voice has always dominated ABBA songs, even when she's doing backup or harmony vocals. Not to bash Agnetha or anything, she has a fantastic soprano voice with an incredible range while Frida's mezzo-soprano is equally stunning. They're just DIFFERENT. And this is what makes the ABBA "sound" so special.
In their later albums (Super Trouper, The Visitors) you really get to hear just how good these women are.....there're some incredible notes being hit on those songs. So if one can fault anything about this CD, it's because of the songs, NOT the singer. I still say it's good, but her "Ensam" CD from 1975 was better. Check it out.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frida is one foxy lady, and what a voice! March 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
While i am not a huge ABBA fan, i will admit to liking some of thier songs. On e of those reasons is Frida. Sure Ana was cute, but i think that Frida was the whole package: beauty, mystery, and of course one heck of a voice. That same voice is apparent on her debut solso album. While i have not gotten achance to hear the whole album, it is still a great solid record with some great tracks. The title track is off the hook with one of the best beats ever in music. Frida is not only a great singer, but a goddess in my book. She was never a second fiddle to Ana and never will be.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars - Not bad Nov. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Something's Going On (1982.) A solo album by ex-ABBA member Frida.
In 1982, ABBA member Frida released a solo album entitled Something's Going On. Though ABBA was a bright and happy group, Frida was their darker side, and she was often overshadowed by the band's more popular female vocalist. Finally, she'd have her OWN album - no one would be stealing the show from her here. Well, almost no one. Perhaps the true attraction of this album is who she chose to play percussion - legendary Genesis drummer/vocalist Phil Collins! He had just released In The Air Tonight the previous year, which would go on to be his biggest solo hit - meaning when he played on this album, he was in his prime. All right, enough introductions. Read on for my review of Something's Going On.
Tell Me It's Over - The album is kicked off with a classic, lighter pop tune. Despite Frida having been ABBA's darker side, she pulls this tune off well.
I See Red - This is the slower and darker side of pop music - the side I (and whoever wrote Amazon's editorial review for the item) felt Frida stood for. Good song.
I Got Something - Here the group does an interesting experiment - this is another poppy tune - but it fuses the stylings of the two previous tracks. Not a bad idea!
Strangers - This is a slower, pop-oriented ballad using acoustic guitars. Though I tend to lean more toward songs that uses electric guitars, this is nothing short of excellent.
To Turn The Stone - Another slow track here. This is also another excellent ones - proving that sometimes slow tracks are best.
I Know There's Something Going On - Frida's biggest hit as a solo artist. Here Phil does backing vocals in addition to his drumming duties, and he becomes the stand-out member of the group for this song.

4.0 out of 5 stars A powerhouse of an album! Nov. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was 9 years old when I first got this album back in '83, and being a huge ABBA-fan, I was shocked by the rocky sound because it was so different from what I had expected. It took me quite a few years to learn to appreciate this album but now I must say that this is a very intriguing album and arguably the most interesting solo project of those released by Agnetha and Frida. Recorded just after her painful divorce from Benny, this album shows both the strong, powerful side of Frida on the uptempo cuts, Tell Me It's Over, I Got Something, I See Red and the excellent title track - Frida's voice cuts like a knife - and the vulnerable side on the superb low-key tracks Strangers, Threnody and her compelling rendition of Phil Collins' You Know What I Mean. These are simply excellent. I also like the jazzy Baby Don't You Cry No More a lot. Whereas the Bryan Ferry-penned The Way You Do is a bit indifferent, the mysterious To Turn The Stone - originally recorded by Donna Summer for an unreleased 1981 2LP set I'm A Rainbow - is a favourite of many fans (it was Frida's favourite too) and was also issued as the second single. It is surely beautifully sung but the music is perhaps a bit over-arranged on this one. The third single was the closing track Here We'll Stay which fails to come off as happy as intended, arguably because combination of a chorus with joyous lyrics and a melody in minor is a bit weird. But overall this is definitely a strong album by a strong woman and one of the most talented singers that I've ever heard.
PS! It is a MAJOR INSULT by the editorial reviewer to label Frida just a backing singer of ABBA just because she was featured on less singles than Agnetha. She did in fact sing a few more solo parts in ABBA than her blonde colleague.
