Customer Review

on 16 October 2001
A brilliant idea from Polydor to release a compilation of post-ABBA, ABBA and unreleased tracks of Agnetha's and importantly this release has the blessing of this underated, reclusive super-star! The album is beatifully and very stylishly packaged and no expense has been spared with rare photographs and informative and interesting text. The unreleased track "Queen of Hearts" isn't quite the lead song we're lead to believe and obvious highlights are the brilliant Agnetha driven vocals on the ABBA tracks but "The Last Time", released from her 1988 WEA album "I Stand Alone" (which was produced by Peter Cetera of Chicago fame) is a brilliant fusion of uptempo pop/rock, searing vocals from the diva herself and great production from Mr Cetera (did anyone ever see her perform this on Terry Wogan dressed in leather with her hair cut short and spikey?). "I Won't Let You Go" - on the "Eyes of a Woman" album is a very uplifting track, showing Agnetha as the strong-woman who's gonna keep her man (unusual and basic production methods aren't to everyone tastes though - I would love to see this song re-recorded and re-produced by Agnetha with Benny and Bjorn or even as an ABBA song with Frida!!!). "Wrap Your Arms Around Me" from her first post-ABBA solo album of the same name sees Agnetha singing about the loss of a great love in only the way she can - tenderly and almost tearfully. I bought "Wrap Your Arms Around Me" on vinyl when it was first released in 1983 - I was 13!! This track still haunts me today and brings a lump to my throat every time I hear it! Buy this Agnetha compilation and enjoy!
