Let's be clear: ABBA's The Album is great music and I think it is their best album. No Question. But i'm reviewing this remastered reissued Deluxe Edition. And the reissue is not that great at all.

As a remaster, I hoped it would sound better than the 1984 German Polydor CD. To my disappointment, the remaster sounds worse: it is louder, and at first it seems to have more punch than the 1984 master. But it also sounds much harsher, and the silky vocals of Agnetha and Frida (and the hi-hats) suffer from excessive hissing. The initial impression of more punch is seductive, but it is accomplished by compression of the master tape as a whole. This means that instrument separation is lower - the remaster sounds more muddled. So this remaster is a louder, brighter and more muddled version of the 1984 CD. Really sad. I'll stick with my latter.

As a Deluxe Editions, you might expect some extras. This edition contains a booklet, 6 bonus tracks and a DVD with 12 scenes. The booklet is a 28-page story (with some pictures) of how The Album was created. Really interesting to read. But hey, don't expect to find any lyrics in it. The 6 bonus tracks are a mixed bunch: 2 Spanish versions (I do not care), 2 live versions (nice to hear that the girls could really sing, but why not include a full live set?), the single version of Eagle (shorter than the album version) and the Doris Day version of Thank You For The Music (awful in my opinion). But why do they not include a live recording of Get On The Carousel? The track that is mentioned in the booklet, and was only sung live! The DVD is quite nice, although I would have liked a full concert video.

Format: Audio CD
The real genius of Abba's music was in the ease in which their songs addressed the ups and downs of personal relationships from both a female and male perspective.For a so called pop group Abba sang about difficult personal issues [in retrospect they were merely writing about their own crumbling inter band relationships,whilst becoming the most popular group in the world].

This reissue of the soundtrack to the bands tour movie of 1976 is perhaps the nearest Abba got to treading water in their prime[sandwiched between the pop brilliance of "Arrival",and the more mature "Voulez Vous"],but the sheer quality of the songwriting, production, and performances just illustrates how on top of their game Abba were in this period.From the mellow opener, "Eagle", to the classic pop genius of "Take A Chance On Me" Abba never short changed their huge audience on a musical level,and very few bands have ever sustained this level of quality throughout their careers.Whilst essentially a cheerful album, a sly hint of the bands emerging melancholy and maturity can be found in the brilliant "The Name Of The Game".

This reissue has 6 interesting curiosities especially the "Doris Day",[read less produced], version of "Thank you For The Music",which i personally prefer to the album version, and two Spanish versions of tracks from the album.

The dvd is a bit of a gem,with some hard to find,television appearances and interviews[including some in Swedish],that offer more than standard record company propaganda[especially interesting is a brief Blue Peter clip where the bands professionalism is as noticable as their obvious desire to be elsewhere].

Overall this is a fabulous package and worth the investment.It may not be quite as much fun as the "Arrival" Deluxe Edition,but that is merely splitting hairs,and should not stop anybody from purchasing this small slice of Seventies nostalgia.

First of all ABBA the album the original album is still fantastic and is still five stars. However this deluxe version is a real cash in. Firstly no promos for take a chance on me or name of the game. You get a clip from Blue Peter and a few other live performances, the picture quality is poor and the sound is mono. Considering this Album was accompanying the Film Abba the movie there is a lot of material that could have made this DVD well worth it,perhaps even the film which is owned by ABBA anyway would have made a real value package, however my advise is buy the single disc there is nothing special or Deluxe about this version

the only problem I have with this deluxe edition is it could have included get on the carousel as I love that song, but you can view and hear that song online, so it's a small misgiving. the live version of take a chance on me is brill, as is the live version of I wonder and the dvd is pleasant too.

First off, the album is worth five stars. While it's not their most accessible collection, the musical prowess on show here is really indicative of how talented ABBA were as a group, a fact commonly overlooked by people who judge them only on their 'party hits'.

The DVD section was a tad disappointing, although I genuinely laughed aloud at two points:
- The group rush on to a TV show to perform and no sooner have they grabbed their mics, 'Take a Chance on Me' begins, but valuable seconds are lost and neither of the girls' mouths are moving for a few lines.
- The Blue Peter interview, in which the presenter keeps addressing Bjorn as Ba-jorn. Research, woman!

All in all, it's worth a once over but the content is a little dull and the group don't seem very happy in the off-stage interviews, but it's all more than compensated for by the sheer quality of their musical strength.
