Amazing collection
3 January 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

It's an old saying but true; you have to give the people what they want. And one of the greatest groups in music history does it right: this is a collection on DVD of all their videos, front to back, uncut, without any silly stuff in the middle of them that cut the flow like interviews, etc. This a total no bull no fuss-no muss collection, which is just what ABBA fans like myself have always wanted.

Of course ABBA have been releasing their videos on VHS since around 1980, when the format was still young. But to have all these classics on DVD is fantastic. The videos are pretty much non-eventful, as most were in those days, as the artists just kinda stand around and lipsync for the most part. But for an ABBA fan, that's just fine.

One of their very best videos, "When I Kissed The Teacher," shows ABBA in class as Agnetha flirts with the teacher. She is probably looking her most beautiful!

But my favorite video is "Knowing Me, Knowing You" (also my fave ABBA song). How cool to see ABBA in rather plain clothes, how gorgeous does Agnetha look in that blue shirt, and even Bjorn looks kinda cool in that Buick jacket. Frida looks great and Benny has a small smile on.

Any ABBA fan can take apart all the videos all day! But it's a lot more fun to just watch them, this is probably the best musical DVD release of 2002. ABBA may have passed an offer of one billion dollars to reunite (yes, with a "B") but even now in 2004 they still rake it in, forever one of the biggest bands on the planet.
