As much as I adore ABBA, I don't think a reunion is a good idea. They have turned down hugely millionaire offers for them to go on tour and they don't like that idea and it wouldn't be the same. I'd rather remember them as they were than see them as a shadow of their previous selves or worse, as a cover band performing ABBA songs.











I could post so much more videos of them because they have infinite amount of superb moments.

^ I agree but secretly I'd still try and go see them if they did Razz

My fave ones are I Am The City and The Day Before You Came. (Along with The Visitors)

It's funny you've said that because The Visitors is my #1 ABBA album, too.

It's actually quite advanced for it's time. You can hear the future electronic influences (even hints of Madonna's Ray Of Light and some Bjork even) I love the track Soliders tongue it's awesomeness hehe

Yes, it was advanced for its time, especially the title track. Sounds a bit futuristic, even today. Soldiers is one of my most fave tracks from there. I definitely love all the tracks from that album. Too bad they disbanded at a time when they were maturing musically speaking, and getting better and better.

^ Well they recorded The Day Before You Came, I Am The City and several other songs for another album but decided to give it up before full completion Sad it is a total shame as they were reaching a new level of writing/performing.

Oh yes, they were gonna release a new album and they aborted it. Yeah I know about that and it's such a shame. It would have been a brilliant album, I'm sure.
