White disco as its finest. Awfully cheesy and tacky. I can see a fifty year old woman dancing to this when I listen to this. Only the "Dancing queen" may be listenable.

Pop meloso (y melodioso), en la mejor tradición de cierta corriente centroeuropea de música ligera caracterizada por el cuidado en el tratamiento de las melodías, la presencia potente de las armonías vocales y una variedad de tempos y ritmos apta para todos los gustos. El tiempo y la persistencia lo han terminado convirtiendo en un icono.

Dancing Queen is THE perfect pop song (period!). Great cover picture also. If you should own one ABBA album, this should be the one!

Easily their best album. Side 1 (Tracks 1-5) is pop perfection. Side 2 is not as strong but overall a great album.

"Arrival" from 1976 was Abba at the height of their success and popularity. The album contains three of the group's biggest hits, "Dancing Queen", "Money, Money, Money" and "Knowing Me, Knowing You". On some CDs one more hit ("Fernando" ) was added as a bonus-track. "Arrival" was the best-selling album of 1977 in the United Kingdom.

Apart from the 4 classic hits, it has two more personal favourites if mine. "When I Kissed the Teacher" is a very catchy upbeat song with cruchy acoustic guitars. "Tiger" is a more hard-hitting song; but still also very catchy.

Less significant songs, such as "That's Me", "My Love, My Life", "Dum, Dum Diddle" and "That's Me" are not bad either, making "Arrival" altogether one Abba's most consistent albums.
