Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

With Abba Agnetha Faltskog sold more records in her life than most artists could ever dream of. My Colouring Book didn't start life as an album; it was inspired by a scrapbook hobby that grew into a passion for the 1960s. Don't expect Abba-esque floor-fillers or pub-band crowd pleasers. Faltskog has taken, for the most part, less popular songs of the period and injected them with an ambience that could only come from a deep knowledge and understanding of the music, fashion and style of the 60s. Her voice sounds stronger and crisper than ever; this, combined with a mountain of grandiose string arrangements, makes for a strangely epic journey of easy listening.

"Love Me With All Your Heart" is filled with bombast and sugary-sweetness, drawing comparisons to the late, great Dusty Springfield. The sadly over-covered "Fly Me to the Moon" thankfully keeps the jazz vibe to a minimum, sticking to the big strings, guitar and vocal arrangement that dominates the whole feel of the album. My Colouring Book could easily have been rubbish, ploughing through a catalogue of songs that have been abused too many times, yet Faltskog manages to pull it off with style, grace and elegance. --David Trueman

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Return From Exceptional Singer 22 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Just a couple of weeks ago I was rudely reminded it was 30 years since Abba won the Eurovision song contest...an event I recall clearly as I was 10 years old and for the first time wanted a country other than the UK to win the contest.
Watching as a child that night I was transfixed by Agnetha Faltskog's look and voice. I was an Abba fan from that night on and have remained a fan ever since, although the member of Abba who I admired the most was Agnetha.
Agnetha hasn't had the easiest of times since Abba broke up in 1982 however one suspects that recording this album, which is full of her interpretations of songs she remembers listening to herself as a child in the 60s, was a joyous and dare I say it, therapeutic experience for her.
Agnetha's voice is still as clear, poignant and expressive as ever and I felt quite emotional hearing her sing again after so long.
The highlights of this album for me are the single "If I Thought You'd Ever Change", "What Now My Love" and "Past Present and Future".
Some may dismiss her cover of the Shangri-La's classic as cheesy but for me it is the most emotional track on the album. Although the vocal is spoken, the lyrics could almost have been written for her. I found it quite heartbreaking listening to her perform the song but it resonates with optimism too.
A lot of the songs might easily be dismissed as easy listening but Agnetha's voice adds that something special which makes her version of "Fly Me To The Moon" more than just a cover version...care and thought has gone into her interpretations, which show just how intelligent a singer and musician she is.
To sum up, this album was well worth the wait...it is a marvellous concept for her return and she certainly doesn't disappoint.
I hope that this album reminds people of just how talented this lady is and I wish her well with it and would like to thank her for once again sharing her extraordinary voice with the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Album - Well overdue 14 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Agnetha's singing talent has always been obvious. The years between ABBA and now have not detracted from the purity and strength of her voice at all.
It is a pleasure to share this collection of her own favourite numbers. I didn't think that I would enjoy some of these oldies not sung by the original artists so much. She has added a new dimension to these historic popular music songs.
This is a worthy addition to my music collection.
Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back 22 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
Wow. When I first heard that Agnetha had recorded another album, my firstthought was she - like so many others - had "come out" to top up thepension fund on the back of the 30 year Waterloo anniversary. How wrong Iwas. 30 years ago I was an Abba fan (not a closet Abba fan) and I haveenjoyed the recordings of the four artists since. To me, this album beatsthe lot. That the lady had talent and could SING was never in question butage has matured the voice. It is as good as ever and the choice of songs -a brave choice of diverse music types - is more than matched by thearrangements used here and well within Agnetha's range. The purists mightpick here and there but for me, I was hooked after the first hearing. Ifthe lady cares to continue recording again then we are all in for furthertreats. It is brilliant to listen to, over and over and over again.Inspired and not a weak track on it. More please.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Colouring Book, My Favourite Album! 25 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is a welcome return for Agnetha after 17 absent years. Abeautiful, haunting sound that cries "listen to this record again andagain" after each play. The album begins with the beautifully composedtitle track complete with country tinges and ends with a spell binding andawesome rock rendition of the classic "What Now My Love". (My overallfavourite on the CD). In between are such classics as "The End of theWorld" "Sealed with a Kiss" and a fabulous modern version with atraditional flavour of "When You Walk In The Room."
13 great songs that enrich the heart and let's one appreciate theprofessional and pure sound of Agnetha's instantly recognisable voice. Ionly hope we don't have to wait another 17 years to hear more from thisAbba star, although, I believe that this album is evidence enough thatthere is for this beautiful woman, definetely life after mega-stardom.Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The CD for Old Romantics 21 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
I shall be playing Agnetha's new CD 24/7 for a long time! For an old romantic like me it brings tears to my eyes to hear these wonderful classic songs in Agnetha's voice, sometimes so plaintive, sometimes so lyrical but always so controlled and always so different from the "Waterloo" era. Little though I know of her life after Abba, only that she was something of a sad recluse, true or not, the theme of the album is sadness for things past, unhappy loves, but sung with such feeling that I cannot imagine that she has not loved and suffered through these songs herself. A true classic album that will be played for ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great to have her back! 20 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
Who'd have thought it? Apparently a recluse, Ms. Faltskog returns to themusical limelight once more, all these years after Abba.
As collections of cover versions go,it's a pretty strange one, themajority of the 13 tracks fairly obscure and /or forgotten 60s tunes.Whilst agreeing with the previous reviewer that it's impossible for anyfan of 'the other Fab Four' to listen without a sentimental ear, this isnevertheless a hugely enjoyable listen.
The standard is consistently high throughout, the choices allowing for avariety of styles, each with lush orchestration. Dreamy single "If IThought You'd Ever Change Your Mind" is definitely one of the highpoints.Although featuring rather twee lyrics - a characteristic of much of thealbum - Agnetha's distinctive, still crystal-clear voice more thancompensates.
Of the two most well-known interpretations, a buoyant version of TheSearchers'"When You Walk In The Room" is the more successful, BrianHyland's "Sealed With A Kiss" covered in a perhaps slightly toounderstated style.
Amongst the more notable tracks are heartfelt ballad "Sometimes When I'mDreaming", mid-paced singalong "Remember Me" and the stirring,melodramatic "Fool Am I". Agnetha even manages to carry off a Sinatracover, "Past, Present and Future" with some aplomb. Only jazz standard"Fly Me To The Moon" sounds a little out of place.
I hope this album will be the commercial success that convinces 'theblonde one' to make another, hopefully of new material. In the meantime,this is a massively welcome offering for any Abba fan.
