    Human League were big Abba fans
    they had the same line up and were
    a dedicated synth band.

    (Kraftwork did nt know just what they started )

    NO!!!!! They had different instrumentation depending on the tune. A song orientated pop group is how I always saw them. :grinthumb

    This is a cool instrumental!

    One of those tracks that many ABBA doubters would not think it to be ABBA upon first listen.

    This is sooo pre Trans Siberian Orchestra. :grinthumb

    This comes off their 3rd self titled album.

    Intermezzo No. 1

    Re: The Official ABBA Thread

    abba have joined the beatles and queen in selling over 5 million copies of one of their albums.
    personally i feel they are not on par with the other 2 bands. yes i like some of their singles, but abba albums themselves weren't up to much when compared to other bands.
    i love good catchy pop music,[my favourite type of music] however i've always been amazed at the praise abba get. they are spoken of as if they were something special in the songwriting dept. i obviously do not see that.

    i'm not an abba hater, i love dancing queen, super trouper, rock me, and others. but like i hinted at before, they were purely a singles band, as far as i'm concerned.
