I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the film and am now blown away by the quality of this soundtrack recording, which offers slickly produced, complete studio versions of the songs. Supervised by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, with Andersson in particular taking a hands-on role in recreating ABBA's famous wall-of-sound, there is not a weak track on this album. Standouts include "The Name of the Game" (which was deleted from the movie) and a bassy, even more exuberant version of "Dancing Queen".
The arrangements are much as you remember them but have been subtly updated with the help of ABBA's original backing musicians. Yes, even the odd dodgy vocal can be forgiven when accompanied by such polished production. Very much a guilty pleasure and one to definitely get the feet tapping.
brilliant fun ,sing along it is one of those albums that you cant help tapping your feet to or singing along to (plus you dont mind if your voice isnt that great as you will fit in well) the sort of music i dont mormally listen to but glad i did. great fun
