Super Trouper [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [EXTRA TRACKS]
~ Abba is abbas finest hour. Super trouper is probably their best song bar lay all your love on me. Winner takes it all is a bit prententious but has a nice beat to it. This is their magnum opus.

One of ABBA's best loved orginal albums, "Super Trouper" entered the UK album charts at #1 and spawned three major hit singles.

There's not much I can say about this album that ABBA fans don't already know. All the songs offered are exquisite supertunes sung masterfully by Agnetha and Frida and there really is not one bad song in the bunch. Bjorn's lyrics have matured and some of these songs are lyrically very poetic and beautiful. Frida impresses with "Our Last Summer", "Andante Andante" and the title track and Agnetha shows the world that she is more than just eye-candy. Her vocals are superb on "Happy New Year", "Lay All Your Love on Me" and my favorite ABBA song, "The Winner Takes It All." Their voices are strong, unique and very dramatic and the vocal harmonies are perfection. Just listen to the chorus of "Super Trouper", "Our Last Summer", and "The Piper" (another favorite) as examples. Other album highlight are "The Way Old Friend's Do" which was recorded live at Wembley, the latin-esque "Put on your White Sombrero" (bonus track) where Frida takes the lead (and the song really comes alive at the third verse, when Agnetha and Frida sing, full out, in harmony) and the very mysterious "Elaine" (another bonus track) which has interesting lyrics.

"Super Trouper" (the album) was an international best seller. As mentioned previously, the album debuted at number 1 in the UK and became ABBA's sixth consecutive Top Ten album in Canada where it peaked at #4 and it reached the US Top 20. The biggest single to emerge from the album was "The Winner Takes It All" which became the group's 8th #1 in the UK. In North America, the single reached the top ten in Canada and the US.

ABBA's most accomplished and most popular LP, 'Super Trouper' in its latest 24-bit remastered incarnation is the version to own, despite its fragile digipak container. The remastered sound is extraordinary (as is the case on all the remastered ABBA discs), and the song set contains some of their best material, including "The Winner Takes It All" and the terrific title track. The next-to-last and best album from the Swedish Ubergroup.

If Voulez Vous was their disco album, the followup, Super Trouper, a slang term for the giant spotlights used in their live shows and stadia, maintained a sound consistent with winning albums like their self-titled effort and Arrival, but with the energy of Voulez Vous. The result is one of their best albums.
And it did give them two more UK #1 singles, making a total nine. One is the title track, sung by Frida, about a singer who's going to be blinded by the giant spotlights on the stage of her concert, but won't mind, because somewhere out there, among the thousands of people, is her loved one. "Feeling like a number one?" Chartwise, definitely. Its B-side is the galloping "Elaine." This was a B-side? Should've been an A-side, as its frantic energy recalls other barnburners like "So Long" and "Tiger."
The other #1 is the bittersweet "The Winner Takes it All," a song inspired by Bjorn and Agnetha's divorce, but more about the pain of such a split-up. The song veers from the couple's split to an analogy to the judges decision in some competition. There's a biting sense of predestination, of one not being in control of one's destiny: "The gods may throw a dice/their minds as cold as ice/and someone way down there/loses someone dear."
The Top Ten single "On And On And On" with a mighty insistent stomping drums and synth rhythm, blaring synths, and an energy rivalling their previous albums.
"Andante Andante" is indeed an andante song. In music, it means moderate tempo, faster than adagio, but slower than allegretto. It makes a leisure slow-dance song, highlighted by the usual harmonies by the ladies.

"Super Trouper", "The Winner Takes It All", "Happy New Year", "On & On & On", "Lay All Your Love on Me" are classics" There's very good pop sound in this album! This is one of the best ABBA albums ever! There's bad songs. All the songs are innovating or peaceful "Winner Takes It All" for example. I have to say: this is almost a classic.

The 24-bit remastering of the ABBA CD's is a HUGE letdown. The older CD's (the one's that came out originally) have a much brighter sound, but plenty full. They remind me of the original album sound. But the new discs sound too muddy or dark and the high end (which includes things like acoustic guitars and cymbals) are rather flat or dead sounding. Like my fellow reviewer from San Diego said, "save your money". Keep your old discs. They simply sound better in a side by side comparison. The box set sound quality is better than these 24-bit remastered discs.
