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.

A Gem of an Solo Album

I'm a big ABBA Fan now and so I was back in 1982 when Frida released this solo Album.It was a bid of a shock for me when I listenend to it first time round because of the quite hard edged rock sounds. I have to say this Album is a Gem of an Album and not many people know most of the songs on it. But give it a try even if your not an abba fan and you will be suprised how good it is produced and sang. Its not abba's trademark soft pop sound but grown-up rock with an modern twist.

first time frida!

I adored abba since hearing i have a dream in 79...i was only a wee girl of 6 yet something in Fridas voice was sooo relaxing,graceful,peaceful.Iv collected abba stuff throughout my life and i did buy this album in 1997 remastered on tape.I love it.watching footage of the making of this record,felt sorry for frida.Like her producer phil collins..she too had recently divorced from benny and the hurt is clear and felt in some songs especially "you know what i mean".My favourites are something going on and the beautiful to turn the stone.Some great tracks on this you know and it dosent sound 26 years old either!!.4 stars.


What a departure from the Abba of the time which was in its death throws - this is as fresh today as 25 years ago - still edge courtesy of Mr Collins and the beautiful slightly melancholic vocals of Frida. Well worth a try!

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...
