Review of Abba Gold   

You just dont cut yourself to ABBA!

I've finally reached that stage in my life where I'm happy with the way I am and the cards I've been dealt....as a result I recently came out as an ABBA fan, and I have to say I feel great.

Yes they're dated, yes they're Swedish, yes they're cheesier than a deli counter..but they know how to make a catchy tune.

ABBAs songs aren't particularly moving and they're certainly not in my short list of funeral songs, but like it or not you WILL know every track on this album...they're more catching than typhus (that's the last metaphor I promise).

As proof of their timelessness and status as Pop Gods, ABBA are the most covered band of all time.

It's not cool to like ABBA, but I ask you? In modern music, with generic bands making forgettable ballads, 2-a-penny rap artists singing about gold and arses, and greasy haired pseudo Goths making millions of children carve the word 'hate' in their arms with compasses....I'm glad we have ABBA!

All their best songs are on here and its well worth the buy for anyone out there who has a last remnant of cheekiness about them.

You're just a bitter old man with nothing to live for....and as predicatable as the tide to boot! x

I'll have you know I actually left the house today to take the bins out.

ABBA are nightmare inspiring in their ability to provoke hated feelings of horrible weddings, children's discos and christenings.

"Ohhh, how can be be non-controversial with the music? I know! Let's put on ABBA!"

Two hours of technical death metal would probably please more audience members at a family wedding than ABBA actually would!

Hahaha...its only horrible because we all hate our families..we assosiated ABBA with family functions, its basic behavioural psychology. Its not ABBA we hate, its out family.

I hate 'Dancing Queen' for that very reason..but the other tracks never got played while my mum got drunk and my uncle hit on his neice. You've got to reverse the process by listening to it while doing something you like, like slamming my reviews for instance. *ice cool*

I don't know what I enjoyed more... the metaphors in your review, or the GA slammin' :)
