This is definitely a good CD for people who are casual fans of Abba and looking for the essentials. The hits are here *although the sound quality could be better.* Of course, you get the ever-so-famous "Dancing Queen." Everyone knows this song. You also get many of their other great songs including two of my personal favorites "Knowing Me, Knowing You" and "Take A Chance On Me." Plus one of the best songs of their career "The Winner Takes It All." My complaint would be that I would rather have seen them take off one of the lesser songs and put on "Lay All Your Love On Me" but oh well.
If you are looking for a little more, I recommend the "Gold" collection. Definitely worth a few extra bucks.

20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of ABBA purports to give us the "best of" ABBA in a single CD--with just eleven tracks yet! There's no way eleven tracks can be the entirety of ABBA's "best." However, as usual with this CD series, what we do get is very high quality control numbers with great sound. The front cover artwork is par for this series; but the "eco-friendly" packaging means that you'll have to go to a website to download or read any liner notes you may be interested in reading.

The CD starts with one of their biggest hits ever, "Waterloo." "Waterloo" compares the huge battle from ages ago to a love affair when one person finally gets roped down by the person who loves them! The electric guitars are excellent and ABBA sings this with a lot of enthusiasm and style. "S.O.S." begins with a brief piano solo and the rest of the keyboard work on "S.O.S." really sounds great. The minor keys of this tune are great and I think you'll enjoy this tune. Moreover, listen for "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do." This ballad has a beautiful melody and ABBA performs this without a hitch!

"Dancing Queen" certainly gets fine treatment from ABBA; they first played this song at the wedding of their country's princess to her special man. Apparently because she would one day be Queen, ABBA decided to call this number "Dancing Queen." It does sound better than `Dancing Princess" if you hear the song--the words "Dancing Princess" never would have fit the melody! "Dancing Queen" starts with a huge musical flourish and they never miss a beat. Even all these years later I really like "Dancing Queen."

"The Name of the Game" starts strong with music and when the ladies come in this number takes flight!

I'm using the same criteria to rate this disc that I did in an earlier review for "ABBA-The Collection". The only good thing about albums of this nature is the possibility that a new generation might be exposed to some classic tracks, but that's where the praise ends. I'm a major ABBA fan, and I'm tired of seeing the same tracks re-released over and over and over again, just to line the pockets of the record company. I wonder just how much of a hand the members of ABBA really have in these projects? As I've stated before, Polygram (and ABBA) would better serve the legions of fans out here by finally releasing all those "missing" tracks that can only be found on poor quality bootlegs. (Including "Just Like That", "Every Good Man", "Under My Sun", "I'm Still Alive...(solo Agnetha track)", "Opus 10",etc...just to name a few) We've already got "The Collection", "ABBA Millenium", "Love Stories", "Love Songs", "Gold", "More Gold", "Forever Gold" (yikes!), etc, etc, etc...... How many more configurations can there possibly be for the same songs??

Many reviewers have given this CD an unsatisfactory review stating the fact that it's several songs short of ABBA Gold. These reviewers are completely missing the point. This CD was intended to showcase the bands American hits and not their International hits.

For the casual listener, this CD is highly recommended as it cuts right down to the chase (but then again, so does ABBA GOLD). For those of you out there who are impatient and can't sit through GOLD's 19 tracks then this CD is a blessing. The CD offers 11 out of ABBA's 20 US Chart entries. All of the 11 songs that are showcased peaked in the Top Forty of the Billboard singles charts. Ranging from their biggest- "Dancing Queen" (US# 1, CAN# 2), "Take a Chance on Me" (US# 3, CAN# 7), "Waterloo" (US# 6), "The Winner Takes It All" (US# 8, CAN #10), "Fernando" (US# 13, CAN# 2), "Knowing Me Knowing You (US# 14, CAN# 2), "SOS" (US# 15, CAN# 9), "I Do I Do I Do I Do I Do" (US# 15, CAN# 12), "The Name of the Game" (US# 12, CAN# 15) to their medium sized American hits- "Chiquitita" (US# 29, CAN# 17) and "Mamma Mia" (US# 32, CAN# 20).

However, even as a North American hits showcase, this CD is incomplete. Missing are the Top Forty Hits "Does Your Mother Know" (US# 19, CAN# 8), "Honey Honey" (US# 27) and "When All Is Said and Done" (US# 27). In my opinion, it should have also included their minor US hits such as "Super Trouper", "Money Money Money", "The Visitors", "Angeleyes", "Voulez-vous" and "On and On and On". But then again, THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION covers all the above and more.

It's very hard for me to give an ABBA greatest hits collection anything less than 5 stars considering all of their hit singles are extraordinary pieces of work with strong singing and excellent vocal harmonies.
