ABBA's sixth original UK studio album release was a powerful collection of catchy and haunting numbers that included three hit singles and two Number Ones!

By this time, every new album released by the super group would enter at Number One in the albums' chart due to enormous advanced orders upon release.

This is often regarded as ABBA's 'peak' in terms of chart success, since their final studio album 'The Visitors' which was to follow just a year later, did not produce the usual number of hit singles. That album was of a more 'classical' and unique style. (see my Review for that title)

I played this album the other evening for my partner who, though liked them, was not heavily into ABBA at the time of their success, and therefore had never heard it - he was blown away, and he immediately asked me to play it again!

Format: Audio CD
Unfairly dismissed as 'a singles band' there's no denying ABBA perfected early on the art of writing the ultimate pop song. But their albums are worth exploring and as their career went on their long players became more cohesive. "Super Trouper" is ABBA at their peak (although its follow-up, and their final album, "The Visitors" was an impressive way to bow out).

There's not a weak track in this collection and the highs are sublime. To show they mean business the album kicks off with two pan-European number one singles. After the jaunty title track and opener about life in the spotlight we get to the apex of the Swedes' 'divorce pop' with "The Winner Takes it All", a towering achievement that hits like an emotional depth charge. Agnetha plays the fragile wreck for all she's worth with lyrics provided by her real life ex-husband that to the listener seem so personal they could border on sadism.

One song "The Piper", using a Medieval-sounding middle section, warns against a totalitarian strong man while Christmas evergreen "Happy New Year" pulls off the classic ABBA trick of wrapping bitter lyrical barbs in a sweet melody: the line "... if we don't we might as well lay down and die" is almost Bergman-esque. But among the adult pop are two trips back to the disco, a style explored in depth on the "Voulez Vous" album the previous year. "On and on and On" is a relentless pounding boogie while "Lay All Your Love on Me", an American dance #1 and 12 inch single hit in the UK, has an almost hymn-like chorus among the beats. A similar ecclesiastical feel marks the rousing closing track "The Way Old Friends Do".

By this their penultimate album ABBA were recently divorced and heading into middle age. They were slowing down and getting a little careworn, setting the scene for their downbeat swan song "The Visitors" album just a year later. They were also at the top of their game, masters of the pop single and at last they'd also mastered the album format.

Format: Audio CD
Top quality stuff which nonetheless sounded the death knell for the Swedish superstars. Signs that the wheels were beginning to work loose on the Abba charabanc are all too evident on this, their seventh and finest album. In the midst of the standard, disco-flavoured candy floss ("Lay All Your Love On Me" and "On And On And On") is a sizeable contingent of more profound songs that feature the band taking stock of their changing marital fortunes, none more so than the bitter lament "The Winner Takes It All", a stirring elegy that is the album's defining moment. There's something almost symbolic about the reflective gem "Our Last Summer" and the ironically titled "Happy New Year"; with the sun clearly starting to set on the band's halcyon days, the future wasn't looking at all bright, but at least they were determined to go down gloriously. Not as bleak as "The Visitors" album which would finally ring down the curtain - the title track and "The Piper" make for two irresistibly upbeat fillips - but "Super Trouper" shows the long shadows creeping ever more darkly over the Abba landscape, even if the heartening finale "The Way Old Friends Do" leaves a temporary mood of optimism. Anyone who has ever dismissed this Scandinavian outfit as an over-glitzy Eurovision stunt, as I originally did, should at least give this collection a fair hearing. In an age when several styles of music were easily definable (rock, reggae, soul etc.), this was mainstream middle-of-the-road at its very best. Put more succinctly, "Super Trouper" is a poignant diamond, and ranks among the greatest pop music albums ever created, if not the greatest of them all.

This is one of Abbas best albums. The sound quality is excellent and every song reminds me of why Abba were so popular. If you own just one Abba album this should be it.

"Super Trouper" is an album where all the previous experience and successes of ABBA show, making it the most accomplished release the group has ever put out. It does not mean, however, that it's the group's best offering by far. This honor would go rather to "Arrival", which contains crisper, stronger songs and also more immediate and catchy hits. Moreover, ABBA albums rarely (if ever) worked as one cohesive piece (to this they came close on "The Album").

That said, the penultimate studio album is still as close to perfection as ABBA could get. Arrangements are maybe the best Benny and Bjorn ever wrote and they work especially well on songs that as such were not among the album's cream ("On and On and On" or Me and I"). The super hits of this record are the worldwide smash, a quintessential breakup tune "The Winner Takes It All", the title track with wonderful backup vocals and flawless melody and the majestically synth-ed "Lay All Your Love On Me". Within this track, as well as in "The Piper" and "Happy New Year", ABBA unconventionally used simple structure of three verses and choruses instead of inserted bridges. Although the record is rather dancey, there are great ballads thrown in ("Andante Andante"), as well as the nostalgic "Our Last Summer", reflecting on a happy youthful times back in the late 1960's (?) in Paris.

"Super Trouper" is ABBA still at the top of their game, even though the future of the group at the times of its release started to be uncertain. It's a solid, smooth and catchy effort that you won't regret buying.
