5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 18 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nice to see her back, and with a knock out album. I am old enough to have all of Agnetha's albums, from date of release, I can say that this one does not disappoint. Her albums have kept a high price, so get them while you can. Just watch her back catalogue start selling, and the prices start rising, as the young (well younger than me) start appreciating her solo career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agnetha Faltskog - the Queen of Pop is back! 13 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a triumphant return by the girl with the golden hair - ABBA's legendary blonde diva. Her unforgettable voice is in pristine condition, maturity giving it even more colours, expression and subtleties than in her ABBA days, yet still - astonishingly - as fresh and clear as Nordic spring water, and often heart stoppingly beautiful.

Few other singers in the history of pop can match her particular ability to deliver a poignant lyric in such a memorable and touching way; a unique mixture of vulnerability, innocence, yearning, and sexiness. Her disarming Swedish accent - so familiar from her ABBA recordings - only heightens the appeal. Agnetha can make any song immediately hers; it is an instantly recognisable voice and in technical terms, her breathing, pitch, phrasing and diction in this "torchy" repertoire are all unparalleled in modern pop music. Forget Kylie, Madonna and co.; this is the real deal - she is, simply, a living legend.

Jorgen Oleffson's bespoke songs, with contributions by, amongst others, Carole Bayer-Sager and Gary Barlow, are by and large worthy of her talents, presented in sweeping and sophisticated arrangements. There is nothing to alarm ABBA fans here, just a good mix of timeless ballads, disco numbers and nostalgic pop.

The two early singles, The One Who Loves You Now, and When You Really Love Someone, are far from the best things on the album, albeit delivered with heartfelt conviction. I Was A Flower might have sounded sentimental in less skilful hands, but here become a painful anthem to the loss of innocence, genuinely moving. The retro Dance Your Pain Away sounds like the disco love-child of Voulez-Vous, and Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, capturing exactly the swirling hedonistic atmosphere of the late 70s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Agnetha - the (great) Voice 23 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
OK, let's get this straight. It is wonderful to have Agnetha back in the limelight, but she has not been pushed too hard by Messrs Elofsson & Nordah. This is very easy listening by her standards and in no way ground-breaking; but her voice still has the WOW factor and, for someone of her years (she is 63) she looks fantastic, too, almost regal judging by the photographs in the booklet.

However, a singing icon like her returning to the musical fold should not mean automatic five star reviews from everyone. I think this is perhaps a 3-star album, but I've given four, simply because she has such a fantastic voice which is a joy to listen to. The three best songs, in my opinion, are "I Should Have Followed You Home", the "duet" with Gary Barlow, which was, I understand, created without them recording together in the studio, together with "Dance Your Pain Away", the disco track, and the single "When You Really Love Someone".

Apart from the first and last tracks, which I find quite weak, the other five tracks are pleasantly good. The producers have done a reasonable job in bringing out Agnetha voice, which is unmistakable and pretty wonderful, but she has not been stretched in any way, shape or form. The use of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra is a good idea and works, but make no mistake, the albums released in the eighties "Wrap Your Arms Around Me", "Eyes Of A Woman" and "I Stand Alone" are all better than this. Better than those three is her 2004 release, "My Colouring Book", a collection of covers of 60's songs and all pretty sensational. In fact, when I read she was going back into the studio, I was hoping for another set of covers. The reason? She can sing just about any kind of pop song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Past Forever for Agnetha... 19 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't sure what to expect from this album; would Agnetha still have a voice worth hearing? The answer is an emphatic YES! Her voice is in perfect condition, crystal clear and beautiful, just like in her ABBA days. It is also very expressive, perheps even more so now. It is a most distinctive sound, very lovely, and she has such dignity and class she makes almost anything sound good.

There are some great songs here. And one or two more ordinary songs. As other reviewers have noted, there's nothing very new going on, but I didn't expect anything groundbreaking; it's not her style and why should she fix what isn't broken at her age? And the best of the songs do have interesting quirks: The whistling in Perfume In The Breeze, or the bleak lyric and haunting refrain of the sweet sounding I Was A Flower. Generally, it's the slower, intimate ballads (as always) that suit her best: Past Forever, Bubble, I Keep Them On the Floor... etc. The more poppy tracks (including the singles) are predictable stuff, well delivered, if less memorable.

Rather like the song, Past Forever, Agnetha's theme on the album is mostly regret, nostalgia and sad memories. Is she looking back on her life? Whether or not she's acting a part or reflecting on her own experience, who can say. Perhaps she just recognises that most of us are sentimental in one way or another, and live our lives in the past... And it must be said that recent interviews reveal a far more upbeat and grounded person than the media previously led us to believe.

The album took a few plays to work it's magic; don't give up on it. Listen out for the more reflective moments. It's there that Faltskog weaves her magic spell most potently.
