I recommend this brand new 40th anniversary deluxe edition of Abba's Waterloo. Nice packaging. Nothing to say about bonus tracks. Perfect. And the DVD is generous.

Waterloo was the album that introduced most of the world to ABBA. This particular release sounds very clean, which is a dramatic improvement over past releases. While this is not one of their best albums overall, it contains some of their best-known and loved songs.
The big bonus on this particular set are the 3 extra versions of "Waterloo", the U.S. remix of "Ring Ring", and the Swedish version of "Honey Honey", all of which have been released in some fashion via expensive compilation CDs. Finally, they are all together.
While the DVD is a great bonus, U.S. audiences may be disappointed, because it is in the PAL format, and is not playable on most U.S. DVD systems. But on the good side, it will play just fine on most PCs using standard DVD playing software. Had the DVD been in NTSC format, I may have rated this a 4-star package.
If your a devoted fan, this is a must-have set. However, if you only enjoy the key songs (Waterloo, Honey Honey, Dance), you may find that a compilation CD containing these songs to be of more benefit to you.

Waterloo (30th Anniversary) (+5 Bonus Tr [IMPORT]
~ Abba being their first interantional release has its moments of greatness but feels rough and a bit primitive at times. They are still searching for their sound and it shows.

ABBA. Waterloo. Any connection? Well, it's a brilliant song for starters, and what an album. Eclectic as can be, polished as a tabletop- -and about as deep as a formica veneer. But the more I listen to this thing, the weirder it gets. Every track is a Big Production worthy of anything by Phil Specor sonically, if not musically. And the tunes. . .well, from the beginning ABBA was always about melody and even if some of these songs are not exactly High Art, every one of them has some melodic twist, some hook that grabs and never lets go. 'Sitting In The Palm Tree' may not be the only reggae song in the world to prominently feature a Mellotron, but it certainly is the only reggae song by a Swedish group that does, and that makes it A-OK in my book. 'Gonna Sing You My Love Song' might have bland and generic verses, but check out that absolutely gorgeous chorus. (And someone should ask Elvis Costello if he listened to 'Dance While The Music Still Goes On' while writing 'Oliver's Army', by the way.) But it's in the lyric department that ABBA never ceases to amaze. 'Waterloo' is a cutesy trope on well, Waterloo, but that's just (literally) the beginning. Just a couple of examples. . .'King Kong Song' is, astonishingly, a song about a guy inspired to write a song about a dance named after guess-who after seeing guess-who on TV, complete with shrieks of delight and terror from the female half of the band. Definitely one for the ages. And elsewhere, you gotta admit that there is something intriguing about a girl stunning a bunch of 'fellas' at a newsstand into silence by pointedly lecturing them about the nobility of Dr. Livingstone's explorations. I know I'd be stunned. But the absolute show-stopper is the final track (naturally), 'Suzy-Hang-Around'.Read more ›

The Swedish foursome's second album topped their debut in having more upbeat songs and better production. As again, Agnetha sings lead unless otherwise noted.
It was the galloping title track with catchy hooks and lyrics, jingling guitar, Agnetha's strong vocals combined with Frida's, and some tenor sax, that bettered "Ring Ring" by winning the next Eurovision song contest. As with that song, it was released in Swedish and English versions, and it's interesting to hear both. It was their first #1 UK hit.
The slow tropical sounding "Sitting In The Palmtree" sung lead by Bjorn is about a heartbroken guy sitting in that tree amid the coconuts waiting for his girl despite being made fun of by passersby.
A hard guitar permeates "King Kong Song," which veers towards a hard doo-wop rocker, and things get silly with the basso doo-wop vocals as Bjorn sings about writing a song about watching a gorilla movie on TV, and gives an uncharacteristically rowdy shout about "a big black wild gorilla." Agnetha takes on the next verse. One of the best songs here.
One of Agnetha's heartfelt mid-paced ballads is the farewell song "Hasta Manana." Or rather, goodbye till we meet again. There's a nod to a brief Shangri-La's type monologue (q.v. "Leader of the Pack") in the middle, as well as Connie Francis.
With the pulsing bass and drums as a backing, "My Mama Said" seems a precursor to the disco sound they would produce with "Dancing Queen." Didn't think a clean-cut group like them would do a rebellion song, as the protagonist, a teenager, wants a life of her own, but is nagged at by her parents.
