ABBA — Ring Ring

ABBARing Ring
★★★

Once upon a time, I decided to listen to ABBA. It’s been a while since I volitionally listened to such “easy” music (in contrast to Zappa, Krautrock or Mahavishnu Orchestra, just to mention a few). Surprisingly enough, I found myself enjoying this album, especially the B-side of it, which was far less dance-floor oriented than its A-side counterpart. The songs are well done, and there’s some variety in the style too, from the rocking Ring Ring to the slower and mind-soothing I Am Just a Girl, yet they’re still too simple for my taste. Also, most annoyingly, almost all of them were about love, and love alone. Yet here’s an exception from this rule, one of the reasons why I picked He Is Your Brother as my favourite track on this album.
