Best ABBA Albums


The Top Ten

1 Arrival

Probably their most popular album with songs Dancing Queen, Fernando, Money Money Money, Happy Hawaii and Knowing Me Knowing You that I love! - ivylee

Money, Money, Money, Dancing Queen, Knowing Me, Knowing You - MatrixGuy

Probably my favourite because it has most of the songs I love!

Any album with "Dancing Queen" on it has to be the best let alone "Money, Money, Money" and "Knowing Me, Knowing You". A no-brainer for best ever.

2 The Visitors

This is definitely the most sophisticated ABBA album. That just isn't up to question. With songs like "I Let the Music Speak"-- which is just so deep and almost haunting-- and "The Day Before You Came" (this one makes me shiver), it's just beautiful. The lyrics are more meaningful than many others (cough Dancing Queen cough), and many focus on political issues rather than romance ("Soldiers", "The Visitors", etc.). It's obvious, by listening to this album, that ABBA was taking advantage of their experience in the music industry.

No doubt their best most mature work. Classic!

Who wants an ABBA reunion (please! )!

Wow. What a way to bow out. Such a phenomenal album, but unfortunately it didn't see the success it deserved; 'Abba fever' had all but fizzled out. A lightyear away from 'Bang-a-Boomerang' (the lyrics makes one want to jump off a cliff), The Visitors display a more mature, and dare I say polished Abba. A sterling effort - well done.

3 Voulez-Vous

Abba at their best, the only weak song on this album is 'I have a dream'

Stunning songs like Voulez-Vous make this their best album next to The Visitors and The album.

Song for song, this is ABBA at their best. "If It Wasn't for the Nights" could have been one of the huge hits of their career up there with the popular ones-don't why that wasn't pushed as a single. On side two, those first 3 songs have to be one of their best album song sequences (for those who don't have the record, starting with "Does Your Mother Know", "If It Wasn't for the Nights", then "Chiquitita".

Voulez Vous is a great pop album with lots of hidden gems. "If It Wasn't For The Nights" is one of the group's best songs, along with other classics like "Chiquitita", "Angel Eyes", and "Does Your Mother Know".

4 Super Trouper

Including giant hit Happy New Year and many great songs as The Winner Takes It All, Super Trouper - MatrixGuy

My favourite song The Winner Takes It All! I do like Super Trouper! - ivylee

5 ABBA - The Album

Abba at their peak, easily their best album in terms of composition. Psychedelic "Eagle", power pop "Take A Chance On Me", intricate "The Name of The Game", the beautiful and cosmic "Move On", and the rock opera "Hole In Your Soul" are some of the highlights LOL..."Thank You For The Music", "I Wonder", and the manic "I'm A Marionette", which features an exceptional guitar bridge are an a mazing mini-musical. The lovely ballad "One Man, One Woman" is sweet as well. Abba's best, and one of the best albums, period.

This album has The Name of the Game, possibly their greatest work.

Why is this so low? All the songs are undeniably great, but definitely give eagle, take a chance on me, thank you for the music, and I wonder (possibly Abbas greatest song ever) a listen. No words to describe this album... Just listen to it.

I love their songs Take A Chance On Me, Move On and Thank You For The Music! - ivylee

6 Waterloo

How is this a bad album? Really, there is no such thing as a bad ABBA song or album. I like the songs Waterloo, Honey Honey and Hasta Manana. I totally disagree if this was the worst.

Probably not my favourite but I like their songs Waterloo, Honey Honey and Hasta Manana! - ivylee

By far their worst. A lot of crap. The exceptions are Waterloo, honey honey, and dance

7 Ring Ring

Their first album, and the song with the same title gave the group their big break in several European countries - MatrixGuy

Their first album is pretty good. I like their songs Ring Ring, Love Isn't Easy, Disillusion and Another Town Another Train! - ivylee

I think their first album is good!


There are so many different kinds of songs on this album. Everybody knows S.O.S. and Mamma Mia, but there is so much more. I've Been Waiting for You is just simply their best ballad. Hey Hey Helen rocks big time with a simple but great riff, and the bridge is surprising and changes the song altogether. Benny just simply shines in Intermezzo no. 1. I can't sitt still when listening to So Long.

One of their best albums, I would love to own it on vinyl. I've been waiting for you, Rock me, Hey hey Helen, and so long are some of my favourite abba songs. Then add S.O.S. and Mamma Mia, this by far one of their best albums

9 The Singles the First Ten Years

Never mind 'The First Ten Years'- ABBA's music remain Timeless!
