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.

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

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.

A very interesting deluxe for an Abba Fan.
The videos are exellent. A very interesting footage is ABBA In London interview(BBC).

I picked a copy of this CD up as a spur-of-the-moment thing, already owning the 2001 remaster of the original album myself.

The DVD overall is very good, and by far much better than the CD of the album itself. This remaster is by far the worst I have ever come across - and not even being your typical "audiophile", the distinct lack of noise compression applied during the remastering process is blatantly obvious.

The "raw" remastering effects are worst felt when using headphones, which makes for EXTREMELY unpleasant listening. It's most noticeable on the quieter tracks such as One Man, One Woman, and Thank You For The Music, though is apparent in all tracks residually.

To conclude, this album is worth buying for the DVD. Add to that the excellent linear notes, and for the price you can't go wrong. However, as for the album itself, I would recommend buying an additional copy separately. I don't often rate things so harshly, but honestly, the amount of background noise on the CD tracks is, frankly, appalling.

Good value buy and delivered in good time and good condition. A curate's egg as far as the Abba canon goes, but I'm falling as we speak and the DVD is an absolute clincher. Marvel as Lesley Judd gets not one, but two Abba member names wrong on Blue Peter. Not as good a package as Arrival special edition, but, hey, not every creative spurt can be a Sistine Chapel. It's still more artistically valid than the entire careers of U2, The Who, REM and The Clash combined. Capish?

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.
