A lot of critics say that it isn't a good album and that it will just have you wanting more ABBA songs. They say to pick up the ABBA Gold CD instead, which is a collection of original ABBA hits. Actually, the A*Teens aren't a tribute band. They have modernized these songs and took out some lyrics in some songs, so they aren't really remaking them, but rather they are making them unique for the new generation. Well, this is my review of The ABBA Generation.
It is a great CD!! You'll love the beautiful voices of Sara and Marie. It is one was those albums that you can listen to without skipping any tracks. It starts off with some upbeat-songs such as Mamma Mia, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!, and Super Trouper. Mamma Mia is about an on-again, off-again relationship and a person you know you can't say goodbye to. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! is about wanting company and protection in the lonely night. Super Trouper is about success and how it doesn't get you everything because there are important people that you need. Then it goes into One Of Us, a nice mid-tempo song. It's about how someone in the relationship was childish and that's what led to the break-up and the childish person changed and wants the other person back. Then you can get in the dance mood with the thunder-clad beats of Voulez-Vous, which is about a one-night-stand of dancing. Then the groovy S.O.S will keep you listening. The rhythm of S.O.S is nice and it's about how you always had something to look forward to a relationship and suddenly it's gone. Then it slows down a little with the classic tune, Dancing Queen, which is about the love of dancing. Next, Take A Chance On Me will make you bop your head with it's super-fast beats and lyrics. It's about begging someone to take a chance on you. Then it gets a little techno with my favorite, Lay All Your Love On Me about a relationship where you want your partner all to yourself. The last two songs are sort of serious. The Name Of The Game is a nice ballad, but you can still dance to it.It's about falling in love with a person after just a couple of dates, but being afraid to tell that person how you feel because they might think that it's too soon. It's a really good song. Last, the album finishes off with the ballad Our Last Summer, a song about life and love and being afraid to go a step futher in a relationship. It's kind of like from an old person's point of view looking back on the days of carefree love.
This is my review of The ABBA Generation. If you don't have the album, I strongly recommend it for you! Below is the track listing of this must-have album! If that isn't enough, the US version of the CD comes with the video for Dancing Queen so you can dance and sing along!

Though looking slightly cheesy and teeny look on the cover, the album contains pure pop, and really gives the old abba-classics a new fresh touch. I am more than impressed with this one, and warmly reccomend it to anyone interested in great tunes. Pop album of the year!

Judge me all you like, but I won't deny that the debut album from euro-teenage-popmakers A*Teens is a seriously immense affair.

Taking some of the most classic hits by wonderpopmakers Abba, the A*Teens mix them up and mash them in with modern euro-pop dance beats to reinvent them in a way which is just fabulous. The tracks are danceable and enjoyable- they honour the stylings of the originals whilst making them sound fresh and new.

I'm an Abba fan anyway- but this collection is absolutely marvellous- anyone who is a fan of both Abba and euro-trashy bands like Aqua: this is the perfect album for you!

This CD will not only make you want to dance, but it will also cheer you up. I got the mp3's to audition the music and I was addicted - alas, I live in America, where the release date is in 2001. But this was worth the money, and so I had it air mailed to me.

Is nothing sacred anymore? The original songs of ABBA are among the most beautiful music ever produced on this planet, and there is no reason and no excuse for these absolutely unnecessary new recordings. Get the original ABBA albums instead, especially "Super Trouper" and "The Visitors", and let these copycats fall into their well-deserved oblivion.
