HAVING listened to their new album, fans have confirmed that greatest hits album Abba Gold is still the highlight of the band’s discography.
After impatiently sitting through the ten tracks on Voyage without feeling the urge to hit the dance floor, fans have chucked on Abba Gold because it is the pinnacle of the group’s back catalogue.
Abba obsessive Susan Traherne said: “From ‘Dancing Queen’ and ‘Take A Chance On Me’ to ‘Waterloo’ and ‘Super Trooper’, Abba Gold is all killer. Whereas I can’t remember a single track from the new album and I literally just heard them all.
“They had 40 years to produce a string of bangers, but I can’t see any of these duds making it onto the Mamma Mia 3 soundtrack. Voyage isn’t going to shift over 5.7 million copies like Abba Gold did, even if it’s got a sappy Christmas song on it to boost sales in December.”
Fellow fan Bill McKay said: “At first I thought my opinions of Abba Gold were probably clouded by nostalgia. Then I quickly remembered it slaps just as hard as ever and that all music after 1982 is shit, whether it’s made by Abba or not.”
