Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded two disc (CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) edition of this 1980 album from the Swedish Pop icons. Super Trouper was the UK's biggest selling album of 1980 and a worldwide blockbuster. The album reflected a change in style, returning them to the Pop/Rock sound typical of their earlier albums. This Deluxe Edition features the digitally remastered version of the original album plus bonus tracks. The DVD contains a number of television performances of tracks from the Super Trouper album, none of which have been released on DVD before plus the vintage documentary Words And Music, which features the group talking specifically about the Super Trouper album in the immediate aftermath of the album's completion and a brand new featurette compiling footage that was shot on the night when ABBA and their album designer, Rune S”derqvist, assembled a crowd of friends and circus performers to create the spectacular photograph featured on the Super Trouper album sleeve. Also includes original promo clips.

If Voulez Vous was their disco album, the followup, Super Trouper, a slang term for the giant spotlights used in their live shows and stadia, maintained a sound consistent with winning albums like their self-titled effort and Arrival, but with the energy of Voulez Vous. The result is one of their best albums.
And it did give them two more UK #1 singles, making a total nine. One is the title track, sung by Frida, about a singer who's going to be blinded by the giant spotlights on the stage of her concert, but won't mind, because somewhere out there, among the thousands of people, is her loved one. "Feeling like a number one?" Chartwise, definitely. Its B-side is the galloping "Elaine." This was a B-side? Should've been an A-side, as its frantic energy recalls other barnburners like "So Long" and "Tiger."
The other #1 is the bittersweet "The Winner Takes it All," a song inspired by Bjorn and Agnetha's divorce, but more about the pain of such a split-up. The song veers from the couple's split to an analogy to the judges decision in some competition. There's a biting sense of predestination, of one not being in control of one's destiny: "The gods may throw a dice/their minds as cold as ice/and someone way down there/loses someone dear."
The Top Ten single "On And On And On" with a mighty insistent stomping drums and synth rhythm, blaring synths, and an energy rivalling their previous albums.
"Andante Andante" is indeed an andante song. In music, it means moderate tempo, faster than adagio, but slower than allegretto. It makes a leisure slow-dance song, highlighted by the usual harmonies by the ladies.

Ever since I bought a turntable, a whole new realm of cheap music that I would never have dared paid a rediculous CD price for (or thought of buying in the first place) opened up to me.

Looking through some used album bins, I found some ABBA stuff, and hey, for a dollar a piece there's no reason not to buy them! So I picked them up, laughed at myself, and brought them home and listened.

I bought The Album and Arrival, besides one or two good album cuts they were just all about the hits. "Eh, just what I expected, a singles band with mediocre albums" I thought to myself. Then for some unexplained reason, I bought Super Trouper. There was just something about the oh-so-glamourous cover I guess.

So I drop the needle, and "Super Trouper" starts, which I already knew but never cared much for. For some weird reason, it sounded really good! Then "Winner Takes It All," which I've never heard before, completely nailed me with that incredible, emotive vocal performance. By the time I got around to the chorus of "On And On And On" and found myself dancing furiously as only a white guy can furiously dance I knew I was in the presence of one incredibly stupid-fun album.

By the time I got through the joyously pompous synth-brass blasts of "Me And I," the reflective ballad "Happy New Year," the quasi-Gentle Giant recorder breaks of the absurd track "The Piper" up through the over-the-top closing piece "The Way Old Friends Do" I came to the conclusion that I had just experienced one of the most rediculously entertaining albums I've heard for a while.

There isn't a single song on this album that I don't enjoy immensely, with the exception of "Our Last Summer" which I think kind of kills the otherwise perfect flow of the album.

Admittedly, Super Trouper has always been my least favorite ABBA album, being too much in the adult-contemporary vein or something like that. Anyhoo, I still eagerly anticipated the release of this Deluxe Edition, as I've purchased all of the others to this point, and they have been fantastic. Mind you I'm not knocking content on the Super Trouper release AT ALL. I think the CD remastering is fine, and the DVD has some very good material on it (although there could've been more, but there can ALWAYS be more); no, the problem here is the bad packaging. The "Deluxe Edition" sticker runs over both sides and you must remove it in order to open the gatefold. When you remove the sticker, the glue residue remains. Also, the booklet insert (or at least mine) appears to have gotten absolutely crammed into the slip-cover, and therefore the first several pages are bent and folded, which is unnacceptable. Both CD and DVD had visible fingerprints and small, inconsequential but still visible scratches from the manufacturer. None of this affects content or playback, but when you're expecting a "deluxe" edition...? Makes this something of a disappointment, considering the previous three releases have been basically pristine and of very high quality.

The music has been remastered and I compared this recording to ABBA's Greatest Hits album. The sound quality is much better.

The booklet describing how Super Trouper was created is very interesting. Here you can learn what a "Super Trouper" really is, and the double entendre that Bjorn makes out of the device. There are interesting anecdotes about Benny and Bjorn going to warmer climes to try and knock out some songs, and meeting Michael Paelin from Monty Python fame.

Fans have known for a while that Winner Takes it All is not about the break-up of Agnetha and Bjorn, but this gives a few more reasons why that is so, and describes a bit more how the song came to be.

Overall, I'm happy. This album adds value to my enjoyment of ABBA's music.
