Editors’ Notes

After a string of international hits, ABBA had polished its trademark Eurodisco-cum-American pop sound to an almost blinding sheen. Voulez-Vous (1979) represents some of the last creative gleanings in this direction; subsequent releases by the Swedish foursome would betray more of a modern rock influence. If the formula is familiar here, it still delivers an exhilarating rush on tracks like “Angeleyes,” “Does Your Mother Know?” and “Kisses Of Fire.” A few unexpected twists are thrown in, like the sitar-like synths on “I Have A Dream” and the classical embellishments in “As Good As New.” Along with the breathlessly upbeat tunes are two standout midtempo numbers, the Spanish-flavored “Chiquitita” and the lightly-funky “If It Wasn’t For The Nights.” Agnetha and Frida achieve their typically delectable vocal blend, while Bjorn and Benny reaffirm their stature as pop master-craftsmen. Voulez-Vous has a certain over-ripeness to it, a sense that fresher ideas would be needed for the next project. But for those with an appetite for ABBA’s irresistible hooks and scintillating harmonies, this album is more than satisfying.

Customer Reviews

Perhaps my fav abba album...

Wow how can u not like this album? It has so many classics! Voulez vous, i have a dream, angel eyes, does your mother know, if it wasn't for the night, Chiquitita, summer night city, and gimme gimme gimme, just to name some. Buy it! You'll get addicted

Great album and disco classic

From "As Good as New" to "Kisses of Fire" it is a flowing collection of tunes that you won't forget to hum too.

Even though it is was clearly influenced by the discomania of the time, the album features some slow jams that are ABBA classics like "Chiquitita" and "I Have A Dream".

While "Summer Not City" was not originally included in the album, it was intended as the first single at the time of its released and makes sense to include it as its from the same recording sessions (but technically not a single from the album as the first official was "Chiquitita"). "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!" Is also another ABBA classic and was originally included on their fall 1979 Greatest Hits Vol.2. Included here as bonus track as well.

Gimme gimme gimme!

A Maaaann after midnight!! Love it! Sorry only here for one song.
