Hitkrant, 1983: Wrap Your Arms Around Me album review

Agnetha’s first English-language solo album Wrap Your Arms Around Me reviewed in Dutch magazine Hitkrant. Included here is a promotional postcard from 1983.

The blonde ABBA-singer really let herself go completely on her first English-language solo album: free from ABBA, musically as well, although the closing track on its B-side, “Stand By My Side”, comes close.
Furthermore, very diverse music, obviously because of all those different songwriters.
Mike Chapman produced the album very accurately, although he did use his complete studio trickery, which resulted in a perfectly produced and executed album, with “Once Burned, Twice Shy”, “Can’t Shake Loose” and “Take Good Care Of Your Children” as my favourites.
