C'mon. Some of the lyrics would be improved upon if a chimp threw its own poo at the lyric sheet.

I like Abba and The Visitors is overall a good album with some excellent numbers. The trouble is it could have been great but they threw Two For The Price Of One which is atrocious; a song badly produced and sung with a terrible storyline, dire lyrics and abysmal twist that is meant to be humorous but never gets anywhere close. And it wasn't a one-off in Abba's catalogue.

As you may know they are huge down here.  I have a couple of their DVDs and don't mind them once every three years or so - plus they inspired a couple of Mike Oldfield remakes I really like.

It's a documentary about their Aussie tour, yeah. I half-watched it when it was on afternoon TV about ten years ago. (I think I took a sick day from work, or had a vacation day or something.)

lol you're so cruel! :D

I saw part of the movie but got bored - I recall something about the band being pursued by some DJ for an interview (which still beats Give My Regards To Broad Street for plot excitement).

If there is any overrated band out there, it is probably Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band

I like "Born in The U.S.A." But other then that he doesn't have much to offer

I Think that Rolling Stone should do a cover story of The Rolling Stones covering "Like a Rolling Stone" or if a Type of Beetle was named after The Beatles.

The Script. Mediocre music that all sounds like a rip off of each other. Saw a few live perfomances on tv and they were pretty bad live as well. A friend of mine is a huge fan but even she can admit that it's all the same.
