    I have certain admiration for ABBA. As far as I know, they've released no rareities & b-sides collections or box sets because everthing they wrote was used and was on an album and was a hit. There are no other songs. Respect.

    They are the most truthful musicians in showbiz!

    Refusing lots of cash for cashing in nostalgia with a boring tour speaks
    a lot about them and how they see their music.

    They are more "rock & roll" than some so-called rockers. Hell, they are
    more truthful than Sex Pistols and those are big words!

    Sometimes you like listening to deep and important musical masterpieces.

    But sometimes you want to listen to something upbeat, cheesy, and fun. Abba is great for this.

    Seems like even the crappiest pop music today is cynical, morose, or sex-obsessed.

    Are you trying to tell me that listening to ABBA is not at the same
    level than listening, for example, to Diamanda Gallas?!

    ABBA is as deep as you want. Just like Paris Hilton's genitals!

    Ah, Diamanda Gallas. Nina Simone on steroids.
