ABBA is Back!

Voyage is their 9th studio album, and though not their best, there is some good music there. I know not everyone's cup of tea, but I must admit that I have missed their unique sound. I wish they would have done more over the past 40 years...

    Checking this album out. Pretty good so far.
    I was way late in first hearing ABBA, but it's hard not to like them. They're not embarrassing themselves with this album so far.

    I realize that in my notes above I'm trying to play it cool, but eff it, I like ABBA. There. I said it. I like this album, too.

    How about London and a trip to the hologram concert they are having next year?

    I did just watch this a few months ago. It was pretty silly overall, but it has the ABBA chicks in it.
