Yeah I’m only focusing on the English versions of songs here for better international reach, but ABBA sound good when singing in any language. The songs they re-recorded in Spanish are sweet.

For sure, just thought it would be interesting for people outside Sweden/Scandinavia to hear what ABBA sounds like when they sing in their mother tongue :)

There's also a lot of differences in the lyrics, they're actually not very similar at all. The English version was made a bit more poppy and more "love" related than the original.

I'm listening to Ring Ring right now, and I can't say I'm impressed. The first two tracks are good, but the rest is just not on par with the other songs I've heard from them.

Waterloo is a little better, and it feels like the group is starting to take shape. I hope they just keep getting better with the other albums going forward.

I'mma listen to these a few more times before voting.

For now, I have "Disillusion", "People Need Love" (tragic cringe-worthy mess) and "Sitting in the Palmtree" as three of my votes. Let's see how the other songs hold up with my relistens.

For some reason this made me think of Sabaton.
