Album Review

Fans of Abba's sugary-sweet pop songs will no doubt be surprised by Something's Going On, the remarkably hard-edged 1982 solo album by Abba vocalist Anni-Frida Lyngstad, better known simply as Frida. Produced by Phil Collins, Something's Going On includes a wide range of material, including songs written by Bryan Ferry ("The Way You Do"), Stephen Bishop ("Tell Me It's Over"), and Gerry Rafferty ("I See Red"), and even includes a Dorothy Parker poem set to music ("Thernody"). Something's Going On boasts impressive guitar work by Daryl Stuermer, who has toured with Genesis as well as appeared on several Collins solo albums. Collins' drum work is also outstanding, particularly on the hard-hitting hit single "I Know There's Something Going On." Frida herself shows an unexpected emotional range given Abba's two-dimensional pop gloss. Sure, she still chirps and tweets like a bird, but the diversity of the material and the freedom of recording solo obviously allows her to enter different musical territory. Frida escapes the creative limitations of being a member of one of the world's most popular groups on this solid and often riveting album.

Customer Reviews

Who knew?

I don't remember hearing this album back in 1982 when it first came out but I am an ABBA fan so I thought that I would give it a try. I am sure glad that I did. It is a delightful bit of 80's nostalgia. The title track is reminiscent of Europe's "The Final Countdown" as it fuses a sparkly ABBA-like vocal with a power pop groove courtesy of Phil Collins. Even though I was expecting one, maybe two, decent tracks on this album I was thrilled to find that it was immensely listenable. There is not a single stinker on the album. Who would have guessed?

not bad album

Not a bad classic by the former sole ABBA member Frida. Every track is unique in its own way. 80's wayback noslatgia is here!

A good album with a couple of great tunes...

While a good, solid album, there are really only a couple of standout songs, to my taste. "To Turn The Stone" remains an all-time favourite, as does her take on Collins' "You Know What I Mean". Her second solo effort, 1984's "Shine", produced by Steve Lillywhite, was far superior, and I'm hoping that iTunes will carry it soon. Still, both albums prove that Lyngstad was (is) so much more than ABBA.

Biography

Born: November 15, 1945 in Bjørkåsen, Ballangen, Norway

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '80s

Frida is a Scandinavian vocalist best known as a member of the massively successful Swedish pop outfit ABBA. With her warm mezzo-soprano vocal range and striking auburn hair, Frida often worked in beautiful counterpoint to her blonde soprano ABBA bandmate Agnetha Faltskog. Though she began her career as a traditional folk-inflected singer in the 1960s, by the 1980s she had matured into a sophisticated and environmentally conscious pop icon. Though she has kept a discreet public profile...
