Series: Stories Behind the Songs. This is another of those books that are written looking at a lot of the songs that ABBA has done and then criticizing them. Any such book should first establish what is the purpose of the music? Not just to make money, but to entertain. In my opinion most of ABBA's music is entertaining. Some are a lot of fun to listen to. Some are very sad but still good songs. As with any group there are, of course, some songs that are not done so well. To me, this book is too critical.

I purchased this book thinking it would be an in depth look into the creation of ABBA's songs. Instead it is an unnecessary book reviewing their songs and at times can be quite nasty in it's comments. I'm not sure what the author of this book was trying to achieve, but if he was planning on alienating and ticking off ABBA's fans, mission accomplished!

Thanks for the great books... we liked ABBA before now we like them even more. We learned a lot about each member and now know the story behind each of their songs.

I keep this book close by and refer to it all the time. It covers every song on every album ABBA made as well as details about their work after they went on permanent hiatus. A lot of behind the scenes information about each song and about the albums they were part of. Many reviews are a bit prejudiced with Robert Scott saying whether he considers them profound or piffle (he actually can be quite critical about their lyric choices and some of their experiments into different genres besides their forte) but the information he gives is worth the opinions he tosses around. Lots of great trivia here and a nice look at what went on off stage with this group!

This is another of those books that are written looking at a lot of the songs that ABBA has done and then criticizing them.

Any such book should first establish what is the purpose of the music? Not just to make money, but to entertain. In my opinion most of ABBA's music is entertaining. Some are a lot of fun to listen to. Some are very sad but still good songs. As with any group there are, of course, some songs that are not done so well.

To me, this book is too critical. Numerous groups are mentioned which are supposed to have influenced parts of certain songs (and, frankly, most of the groups named I've never heard of.)

Another thing. For someone to criticize in detail these ABBA songs, my first question is what makes then qualified to put out a book such as this? No biographical information is given for the author. He is a music critic, but what qualifies him to be that? Without that type of information, his writing is nothing more than his opinion, no better and no worse than any one else's. (Also, has he ever actually written music? Performed in front of an audience? Sang as part of a group?)

He comes across as not really caring much for ABBA, and is the second book about the group that I have read which seems to have been written by writers who don't actually care for the subject of their work.

There are other, much better and more balanced books out their on ABBA that you can read.

Positive: This book discusses pretty much every song that ABBA recorded and occasionally provides interesting information and trivia about the recordings.

Negative: It's written in a nasty, tabloid style that sometimes made me wonder if the author really even likes ABBA at all. It's a cheap, poorly written book.
