ABBA: SUPER TROUPER

Super Trouper is generally considered Abba's finest album. The overheated disco flourishes of Voulez-Vous were dropped and the sequencing was very nearly perfect. What's more, silly lyrics metamorphose into things of wrenching beauty. All the songs offered are exquisite supertunes sung masterfully by Agnetha and Frida and there really is not one bad song in the bunch. Bjorn's lyrics have matured and some of these songs are lyrically very poetic and beautiful. Super Trouper is ABBA still at the top of their game, even though the future of the group at the times of its release started to be uncertain.
