Agnetha's voice still sounds beautiful here and the songs are great.

I first heard that Agnetha had a new album out a few weeks ago when I happened to stumble upon the video for When You Really Loved Someone and I was most impressed.
Stephen Dumont
I would recommend Agnetha's album 'A' to anyone who loves great music, Agnetha , ABBA fan or not.

I have been an ABBA fan since 1974. My senior year of high school and I must admit I am a bit nostalgic. I still listen to ABBA on a limited basis and enjoy the high energy of the majority of their songs. This album from Agnetha Faltskog is very good but for very different reasons. It displays many of the same characteristics of some of her very early solo work. For the most part the music is not high energy .... it is very nostalgic and even in some cases melancholy . This is not a bad thing but shows a maturing process that seems more appropriate now than It did while she was doing some of the same type of songs in her teens and early 20s. They strike a cord with me but I like many will miss the upbeat high energy of ABBA sound. We get a high amount of the feelings of life that has kind of run it's natural course of past loves the disappointments that occur as we get past our teen and early years and remember the things that have formed who we are today from the past. The positive little things and the negatives that we seem to dwell on.

The second song on the album .... When You Really Loved Someone... is a good case in point and serves what appears to be the first individual release of the album. It is a beautiful song that displays the characteristics of lost love that I mentioned in the previous paragraph. A really good and hard felt song that pulls the heartstrings of anyone that has experienced the events and feelings expressed in the lyrics. There is usually one person in our past that really seems we never get over.

My favorite song is Back On Your Radio. This song dispays the second most energy on the album and at the same time seems to be a song that could have been written in the 1970s.

This is a pop album, there is no mistaking that and why shouldn't there be? Agnetha is doing what she does best (although you try telling her that)

I try to give balanced reviews and hate it when people say there are no filler tracks on an album... But guess what?
There are great songs and there are good songs, there aren't any bad songs (save one which I don't think is bad, just a bit "meh") We have heartfelt ballads and upbeat pop it is a perfect (and occasionally bonkers) blend, but it works and that is why I have given this album 5 stars

The One who Loves You Now - a lovely song somewhere in between pop and ballad, it is a feel good song and sung beautifully with lovely key changes and backing vocals

When You Really Loved Someone - it follows beautifully from the first track as it is a bit slower, a bit sadder and has an incredible uplifting rift which cheerfully mixes with the pathos of the subject

Perfume in the Breeze - so descriptive in the lyrics and a lovely song, it is a bit predictable if I'm brutally honest but it doesn't lessen from the enjoyment

I Was a Flower - a ballad and then some. This is a powerful song and is actually the first time I was reminded of Abba as it is very lyric heavy and while there is accompaniment it really just needs Agnetha and a piano and it would have been even better

Should've Followed you Home - Gary Barlow and Agnetha sing the ultimate stalking song? Ok, it isn't that bad in subject matter, in fact it's a rather pleasant song, it reminds me of Lady Antebellum, a sort of easy country / pop song.

Past Forever - back to ballads. A very personal song and one that brings you back to earth

Dance your Pain Away - whoa!

I don't get some of the more negative reviews that this album has recieved by critics carping that it is not edgy or innovative enough. This is Agnetha Faltskog people not Bjork!One of the great pop vocalist of her generation and since that voice has lost none of it's magic and ability to touch the heart any generation.There are some stunning performances here " I Was A Flower" contains all the melancholy and pathos of any ballad on Super Trouper or The Visitors."The One Who Loves You Now" sounds like a lost ABBA track from the mid 1970s.Even the more average songs here are made special by Agnetha's masterful performance.This album is an unexpected gem.I hope that it leads to more music from Agnetha but even if it does not it would serve as beautiful swan song to an incredible career.

When the vocal begins on the opening track, "The One Who Loves You Now," you're instantly transported back to the 1970's, when the same voice would permeate the radio airwaves with such hits as "Waterloo," "Fernando," and (the still tremendously popular) "Mamma Mia." The hits of the Swedish super-group ABBA still inundate the Broadway stage at the Winter Garden Theater, but we now have brand new material from the blonde, silky-voiced Agnetha Fältskog, with her new release, simply titled "A."

With her first album of original material in 25 years, Fältskog delivers the same youthful sound that brought her and her bandmates to superstardom almost four decades ago. The singer was approached by award-winning producers Jorgen Elofsson (who is responsible for hits by Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson and Celine Dion, among many others) and Peter Nordahl about creating a new set of music, and together they've created a genuine, sincere ten-song release that features Fältskog in various styles, and yet she never falters to deliver an engaging performance. From her mid-pop duet with Gary Barlow (the British pop singer who also serves as head judge on the U.K.'s "The X Factor") on "I Should've Followed You Home," to "Dance Your Pain Away," which could easily have been an ABBA hit circa 1978 (think "Super Trouper"), Fältskog seamlessly weaves her way through each tune. The album concludes with the yearning ballad, "I Keep Them On The Floor Beside My Bed," the first tune the songstress has co-written in many years.

Many years may have passed since ABBA's heyday, but Fältskog's voice (though the singer is now a grandmother!) remains as timeless as ever.
