Hitkrant, December 1977: ABBA – The Album album review

ABBA - The Album reviewed in Dutch magazine Hitkrant in December 1977.
ABBA ‘ABBA, The Album’ Polar/Polydor
ABBA: the album review! If there is one record that thousands of people are looking forward to with anticipation, then it will undoubtedly be the new ABBA-album. Although the album has not been officially released here yet, we managed to get hold of a few copies.
Well, brace yourselves, because it’s a gem of a record. Every single song is of an enormous class, which once again underlines the versatility of the four ABBAs. Actually, there is not a single weak moment, or it would have to be the somewhat nervous ‘Hole In Your Soul’.
‘Eagle’, ‘Take A Chance On Me’ (the new single), ‘One Man, One Woman’, ‘Move On’ and the mini-musical ‘The Girl With The Golden Hair’, consisting of three parts, all made a big impression on me immediately.
Both productionwise, vocally as well as instrumentally, splendid work has been done, that all ABBA-fans will definitely know how to appreciate. With this album, ABBA have earned themselves a place among the biggest names in the international music scene. At the beginning of next year, it will be available in all the shops.
