5.0 out of 5 stars She certainly stands alone, 5 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Stand Alone (Audio CD)
I remember the heady days of ABBA back in Australia and then they disappeared, more or less and all we were left with were memories.
I Stand Alone is one of those albums that you can play over and over, the soaring falsetto voice of Agnetha is back again, albeit without her former comrades and one is reminded once again of the power of music to change lives.
Love songs like Little White Secrets, The Last Time, Love in a World Gone Mad remind us of what made ABBA such a memorable band, and Agnetha's voice has always had a haunting quality about it that screams mystique, sensuality tinged with raw energy and soulful angst. Why this album was never picked up by the big radio stations just proves that true music is like a gem, you have to dig deep to find the good ones!
Co produced by Peter Cetera of Chicago fame and with songwriting from Chapman, this solo album is one of my favourites. I use it as backing music when I'm writing my books.
Worth every penny, keep on singing Agnetha, in a world of trivial X factor wannabes we need someone with a REAL voice.

In a world of non-stop American guff, c/rap, warbling screaming divas like Pariah Carey and nasty disco nothing whores like Madonna, and supermarket swill boybands, girlbands and duff guitar bands, we need people like Agnetha like fresh air in a burning building.
